The More You Read . . .


“The more you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you’ll go.”

~ Dr. Seuss –  “I Can Read With My Eyes Shut”


Book Review: E-learning 101 by Dr. Liz Hardy

E-learning 101 by Dr. Liz Hardy is an instruction manual designed to help students taking online classes. It outlines the best ways to manage time wisely and how to ensure success in the online education world.

I think that E-learning 101 is a valuable tool not only for e-learners but could also be applied to traditional students. The tips are worth considering for each situation. I highly recommend it for e-learners and give it a grade of A.
