"Space, whether physical or virtual, can have a significant impact on learning. Learning Spaces focuses on how learner expectations influence such spaces, the principles and activities that facilitate learning, and the role of technology from the perspective of those who create learning environments: faculty, learning technologists, librarians, and administrators... This e-book represents an ongoing exploration as we bring together space, technology, and pedagogy to ensure learner success."
The idea of deliberately designing spaces for learning or knowledge sharing has never gotten the attention it deserves from corporate decision makers. Hopefully this book, though still focused at the academia, will take the discussions to a higher level. [thanks elearnspace for the pointer]
