Jill couldn't help falling for Todd. He was handsome, charming, and they had incredible chemistry, but he had a wife, and they had an arrangement. Learning to live in a poly-amorous relationship was different for everyone involved. But they adjusted. Then entered Dean. Witty, romantic, and entirely available to be Jill's alone, he swept Jill off her feet in a way that would have answered her desires, but now only left her confused. A marriage proposal from Dean brought even more questions. Could Jill learn to be the one?

In the rapidly-changing world of the Internet and the Web, theory and research struggle to keep up with technological, social, and economic developments. In education in particular, a proliferation of novel practices, applications, and forms - from bulletin boards to Webcasts, from online educational games to open educational resources - have come to be addressed under the rubric of «e-learning». In response to these phenomena, Re-thinking E-Learning Research introduces a number of research frameworks and methodologies relevant to e-learning. The book outlines methods for the analysis of content, narrative, genre, discourse, hermeneutic-phenomenological investigation, and critical and historical inquiry. It provides examples of pairings of method and subject matter that include narrative research into the adaptation of blogs in a classroom setting; the discursive-psychological analysis of student conversations with artificially intelligent agents; a genre analysis of an online discussion; and a phenomenological study of online mathematics puzzles. Introducing practical applications and spanning a wide range of the possibilities for e-learning, this book will be useful for students, teachers, and researchers in e-learning.
