Have you heard of Coursera or the Khan Academy? How about gamification or edutainment? If not, you soon will. Advances in educational technology and pedagogy are exploding the field of online learning. Now more than ever, it is easier to find, access and take high-quality, relevant courses on a computer or mobile device. In this presentation, we will define and describe online learning, discuss its effectiveness, and explain the factors driving its popularity. We will also outline future trends in online education and highlight online learning resources available through the Addiction Technology Transfer Center (ATTC) Network.
