I second everything on Mike's list. In fact, if you look at my post, you'll see a lot of overlap in the books I recommend with Mike's list. If you're looking for additional reading after you get through those books, I have some additional books and websites here:

Hello Ambika,

Deciding whether or not to obtain a formal education is a personal choice.  I have worked with individuals who are self-taught and those who have formal education in the field, including myself.  As far as skill level it is all based on the effort each person.  In my personal experience, my degree allowed me to understand better how we learn, how to manage projects, and communicate with stakeholders and subject matter experts. Resources such as E-Learning Heroes allowed me to learn how to build better courses.
