Schroeder's blog named Distance Learning Site of the Month

The blog Online Learning Update maintained by Ray Schroeder, professor emeritus of communication and director of the Office of Technology-Enhanced Learning, was named Distance Learning Site of the Month by BellaOnline - the second largest women's site on the web with more than 20 million page views each month.

In his review of the blog, Gregory A. Kompes, BellaOnline's distance learning editor, noted, "If you're interested in keeping up with online and distance learning news, Online Learning Update is the place."

Schroeder has published the blog for the past seven years, adding three new news and research pieces every day since 2001. Each entry contains brief summaries of daily news stories related to online and distance learning, as well as links and summaries to current online and distance learning research. Readers are also invited to post comments about the articles.

BellaOnline is designed to provide high-quality, helpful, trustworthy content in an encouraging, supportive publishing community for women. The site makes free training, support, and promotion available to help writers reach personal and business goals.

Online Learning Update is available at: http://otel.uis.edu/Portal/index.asp
