Teaching and Learning in a Net-Centric World

A very Special Issue of IRRODL is Out the Online Door

Special issue 9(2) of the International Review of Research on Open and Distance Learning (IRRODL) is now available for open access. This is first collaborative effort we have undertaken, simultaneously publishing on a common theme (The Right to Education) with 5 other peer reviewed Journals. The articles cover a wide range of issues, in multiple languages, from many countries of the world. Many readers of this blog will find the articles on Open Educational Resources of interest, but as always, technical solutions to access and equity, by themselves, rarely resolve human concerns.

The peer reviewed articles from all 6 journals are accessible here. Besides the seven reviewed articles in the combined collection, additional research notes, a book review and recordings of CIDER sessions are also available in this issue at the IRRODL site. All the articles are also available in Mp3 format.

The six collaborating journals are:
Open Praxis
Asian Journal of Distance Education
Distances et savoirs
Journal of Asynchronous Learning Network

Enjoy the read and learning available in these special issue works!

Terry Anderson, Editor IRRODL
