Recommended Books 
Some classic books were written about online education before the web was introduced. An 
early, significant book was Mindweave edited by Mason and Kaye (1989). Later important 
contributions were Online education edited by Harasim (1990), Empowering networks edited 
by Waggoner (1992), Computer mediated Communication and the Online Classroom edited 
by Berge and Collins (1995), and Learning Networks written by Harasim, Hiltz, Teles, and 
Turoff (1995). These books cover a broad range of issues related to online education, none 
includes in depth studies of teaching techniques for CMC.
