Journal Mission

Trends in eLearning have gained importance and prominence within all sectors of education and training, but the speed of adoption has out-stripped the pace of research and critical thought on best practices in a burgeoning field. Current Issues in Emerging eLearning addresses dilemmas posed by the application of technologies based on unexamined assumptions. This journal provides a forum for self-study among practitioners involved in technology-reliant teaching, training, and learning activities.

The focus of the journal is intentionally eclectic, promoting scholarship on the disruptions teaching with technology bring to all segments of the educational marketplace. This focus addresses the new era of eLearning in which educational practices formerly restricted to discrete domains have become shared concerns.

Examples include online education, video teleconferencing, web-based and mobile learning, and all forms of electronic text, graphics, video, animation, and digital audio as they apply to teaching, training, and learning systems.

Current Issues in Emerging eLearning publishes applied research, critical thought, informed discussion of practice, and conceptual papers with a research basis. The objectives of the journal include:
