To be published by IGI Global:

One of the ways which online education is capable of reaching online learners is the basis and method of transformative learning. Therefore, it is important to understand how to prepare transformative learning sessions and courses and how to design an environment for prospective online learners so that they are able to transfer their information, knowledge and learning from theoretical forms to real life experiences with online education.  In the field of distance education and online learning, there exists a need for an edited collection of articles in this area.
