JOLT Vol. 8, No. 2

From this morning’s inbox…  Note the blended learning piece from my colleagues at the University of Canterbury in Christchurch, New Zealand.

Dear colleagues,
In case you weren’t already aware, Vol. 8, No. 2 of the MERLOT Journal of Online Learning and Teaching (JOLT at has been published and is available online. The papers in this issue are listed below. Owing in part to a change in editorship and a number of associated operational issues in the early portion of this year, the journal is currently running a little behind on its publication schedule. We are working hard to publish the two remaining issues for this year within the next 2-3 months, and hope to resume on-time publication beginning with the release of Vol. 9, No. 1 in March 2013.
