The definition discussions are supported with relevant literature from educational communications and technology and related fields, such as communications or educational psychology.  Individual signed entries are written by over 50 established scholars from throughout the field and throughout the world. The terms included in the encyclopedia cover the many topics addressed by the field’s practitioners and scholars. They encompass six general categories of educational technology content – foundational subjects, instructional design, technology and media, analysis and evaluation, management and organizational improvement, and research and theory.​

Reviews

From the reviews:

“Scholars and practitioners can use the book as a reference, dipping in and out of topics of interest and navigating to key terms and additional references as and when required. … this encyclopaedia is a welcome intervention for me, indeed a great addition to my library. … it will also be a very welcome reference text to beginning educational researchers, students, and practitioners … .” (Nancy El-Farargy, British Journal of Educational Technology, Vol. 45 (3), 2014)
