Study Skills Connected Reviews

'The beauty of this book is its accessibility and clarity and that it is primarily about how to apply study skills when using technology and online content - I don't know of any accessible online material that does this.' - Jeanne Godfrey, formerly Principal Lecturer in Learning and Teaching, University of Westminster, UK 'The topics are thorough. The author takes us through various aspects from e.g. learning what a podcast is, to how to find and cite them, to learning with them, and finally how to create them.' - Janey Flanagan, Director of E-Learning, Borough of Manhattan Community College, US 'Engaging content, written in a very appropriate tone and style for the modern audience.' - Tony Ward, Head of Psychology, UWE, UK 'This book gives the student the opportunity to see how technologies can be used in carrying out core academic tasks.' - Kate Williams, Study Advice Centre, Oxford Brookes University, UK
