Fiona Thomas has been working as an educational manager since 1997. She is a trained and qualified English language teacher, teacher trainer and manager. She was the Director of Studies for a conventional language school for 4 years before moving into managing an online language school in 2001 where she has worked ever since. She regularly attends and gives talks on educational management at conferences.
Increasingly, education is moving into the online world. However, very little has been written on the subject of managing this new online educational world. This book attempts to address this gap for academic managers. It follows the process from the first decision to go online, and pursues that through planning, building, marketing, dealing with teachers, and finally, monitoring the whole.
