Happy Holidays!
For your holiday reading, The International review of Research in Open and Distance Learning (IRRODL) offers a final edition, featuring 6 research articles, one note from the field, a book review, and 5 web conference recordings from the Canadian Institute for Distance Education Research.

This issue marks our tenth year and largest number – 6 of issues.  This success makes us mindful of the support of our publisher, Athabasca University Press, our sponsor, Athabasca University, and the many academics and students who volunteer their time and talents in creating, reviewing, and promoting open education research.

Best wishes for a rejuvenating, yet learning-filled holiday and New Year!
