Book Review: Adding Some Tec-Variety (Bonk & Khoo, 2014)

Bonk, Curtis & Elaine Khoo.  2014.  Adding Some Tec-Variety:  100+ Activities for Motivating and Retaining Learners Online.  Bloomington, IN:  Open World Books.  367 pages.

This book provides an introduction to learning theory, and then uses that theory as a basis for exploring 10 principles related to active learning in online learning.  Each principle is illustrated by 10 different types of activities that would be appropriate for online learning.

I found the book to be an interesting resource, but as with many of these books that provide "100+" activities, it is not necessarily something you want to read straight through.  The opening chapters on learning theory are a well-done, albeit quick introduction to the field.
