Über den Autor
J. Michael Spector is Research Scientist at the Learning and Performance Support Laboratory and Professor in the Educational Psychology and Instructional Technology Department at the University of Gerogia. His recent research is in the areas of intelligent support for instructional design, system dynamics based learning environments, assessing learning in complex domains, distance learning, and technology integration in education. M. David Merrill is retired Professor Emeritus, Utah State University. Since retiring, he has worked as a visiting Research professor at Florida State University and Research Consultant and Professor in Residence at Brigham Young University-Hawaii. He led the team which developed the authoring system for TICCIT (Time-shared Interactive Computer Controlled Information Television). Dr. Merrill further developed component display theory in association with the TICCIT system and refined that theory in the form of both elaboration theory and instructional transaction theory. Jan Elen is Professor in the Department of Educational Sciences of the Katholieke University of Leuven. His research is oriented towards the design and use of computer-supported learning environments in educational settings. He is the coordinator of the newly- founded School of Education of the Association at Katholieke University of Leuven. MJ Bishop is Associate Professor in the College of Education at Lehigh University. Her research interests are in understanding the fundamental components and the psychology behind instructional media and delivery systems in order to discover their pedagogical capabilities and limitations. Her goals are to devise more effective ways to design instructional technologies that enhance learning.

The 4th edition of the Handbook of Research on Educational Communications and Technology expands upon the previous 3 versions, providing a comprehensive update on research pertaining to new and emerging educational technologies. Chapters that are no longer pertinent have been eliminated in this edition, with most chapters being completely rewritten, expanded, and updated Additionally, new chapters pertaining to research methodologies in educational technology have been added due to expressed reader interest. Each chapter now contains an extensive literature review, documenting and explaining the most recent, outstanding research, including major findings and methodologies employed. The Handbook authors continue to be international leaders in their respective fields; the list is cross disciplinary by design and great effort was taken to invite authors outside of the traditional instructional design and technology community.
Provides comprehensive research reviews of new developments in educational technology
