Journal of Online Learning Research – Up And Running!

This showed up in my inbox a few hours ago…  It is good to see the Virtual Schooling SIG getting things accomplished and growing the profile of the field.  Note that you can look at the advisory board and review board at the site (disclosure: I’m an advisory board member), and also sign up for table of content alerts.  I’ll also post the first call when it comes through.

Dear Journal of Online Learning Research Executive Advisory Board members,

We hope this email finds you well.

We are happy to announce that the Journal of Online Learning Research is up and running and accepting submissions – http://www.aace.org/pubs/jolr/default.htm.

We will be sending out a general call within the week to start soliciting for those issues that will come after the inaugural one in January. We’ll send you this call as well so that you can share it with your network.

We are excited to have you on board! Please let us know if you have any questions.

Enjoy your day,
Kathryn & Leanna

Digital games and simulations are serious new tools for learning.
