Call for Papers

Special Issue of JCAL on:

Learning Analytics in Massively Multiuser Virtual Environments and Courses

In recognition of the current interest in both learning analytics and massively multiuser environments and courses, contributions are being solicited for a special issue of JCAL addressing the intersection of these domains. It is clear that dialogue and exchange are needed to bring together the various contributory bodies of knowledge encompassed by the two domains, and one of the aims of the special issue will be to help encourage this. To this end, in addition to manuscripts reporting empirical investigations on the application of learning analytics to learning, teaching and assessment in MMVEs and MOOCs, those with a theoretical or conceptual focus will also be considered, with interdisciplinary studies and perspectives particularly sought after and welcomed.

Please note, the call for papers has been updated to further clarify the scope of the Special Issue: Read the updated Call for Papers here

Proposal submission deadline extended until 7th October 2013
