Teaching and Learning in a Net-Centric World

Another Issue of IRRODL out the door

We are pleased to release another fine issue of International Review of Research on Open and Distance Learning (IRRODL). This issue marks our 10th year of publication and I am confident that IRRODL is now the most widely read and cited distance education journal in the world. We  present in this issue 8 peer reviewed scholarly articles (from 5 continents), and 2 book reviews. There is also an editorial from Brigette McConkey, new IRRODL Managing editor  which lists the  top downloaded article stats from 2008 and an offer to apply as IRRODL Book Review editor.
