Scope: 

Education is one domain that has accompanied civilization throughout the centuries, adapting its tools to fulfill the expectations of students and the needs of teachers. Such tools can be as obvious and traditional as pencils and notebooks, or as complex and innovative as websites or multi-user virtual environments. Typical in-person learning environments, such as classrooms and meeting rooms, are at times not the best solution to enable and maximize a student’s ability to learn. Although they do fulfill their purpose of giving students the opportunity to understanding course material and of reaching their instructors, they sometimes can create barriers that cannot be easily overcome.

Web-based instruction and multi-user virtual environments allow more freedom in terms of time restraints and the physical limitations innate to typical lectures and classroom settings. Through these innovative mediums we can explore concepts while being a part of a learning community through socialization and collaboration online. Many universities, public institutions and private businesses are projecting themselves on the Internet and in virtual worlds to reach the customer at any time, giving them the notion of a virtual presence that cannot be delivered through a simple website. This observation sparks the idea that is at the very foundation of this publication with a focus on e-learning and e-education.

This journal’s aim is to become a central repository of information about the utilization of on-line education through web-based instruction and multi-user virtual environments. With this journal we wish to create a one-stop resource to teachers, researchers and practitioners who wish to access information of high quality and broad coverage. Topics to be discussed in this journal focus on (but not limited to) the following concepts:

  • Accessibility and usability of web-based instruction in the classroom  
  • Assessment
  • Best Practices  
  • Collaborative learning and social networks
  • e-Learning workflow  
  • Educational/learning repositories  
  • Mobile learning  
  • Security and privacy in education and e-learning systems  
  • Social and organizational perspectives  
  • Standards and infrastructures  
  • Student engagement  
  • Teaching/Educational Models and Frameworks  
  • Virtual Learning Environments

Editors-in-Chief

Giovanni Vincenti joined the University of Baltimore in 2013 as  Assistant Professor. Before this position he spent several years at  Towson University as Lecturer and recently as Associate Director of the  Master's Program in Applied Information Technology. The primary focus of  his research revolves around e-learning solutions for programming  language education, creating material that students can utilize to learn  and review key concepts in Java, Visual Basic, C++ and Python. He also  conducts research on practical data-centric applications of fuzzy sets  in the field of data mining and information fusion. With James Braman,  he has managed the editing of two volumes on virtual worlds and  education through IGI Publishing, titled “Teaching through Multi-User  Virtual Environments: Applying Dynamic Elements to the Modern Classroom” and “Multi-User Virtual Environments for the Classroom: Practical  Approaches to Teaching in Virtual Worlds”. In 2009 they started the “EAI  Endorsed Transactions on e-Learning”, and are currently  the Editors-in-Chief.

James Braman is an Assistant Professor in the School of Applied &Information Technology at The Community College of Baltimore County. He has a Master’s degree in Computer Science and is pursuing a Doctoral degree in Information Technology at Towson University. His main research is focused on: virtual worlds and their use in education and training, e-learning, augmented reality, intelligent agents and thanatechnology. He has published numerous articles in these areas along with several edited books (with Giovanni Vincenti) including “Teaching through Multi-User Virtual Environments: Applying Dynamic Elements to the Modern Classroom” and “Multi-User Virtual Environments for the Classroom: Practical Approaches to Teaching in Virtual Worlds”. He currently serves as a joint Editor-in-Chief for the EAI Endorsed Transactions on e-Learning.
