Abstract: We present emerging trends and challenges in research on Technology-Enhanced Learning (TEL) that resulted from an international Delphi study. The study used the input from members of the European Network of Excellence STELLAR (Sustaining Technology Enhanced Learning LArge-scale multidisciplinary Research), as well as input from two international panels of experts (n1 = 230, n2 = 569). Over the course of five Delphi rounds, we identified 11 Core Research Areas (CRAs). A CRA integrates important societal challenges, emerging technological trends and relevant educational research themes into one comprehensive area of TEL research. The CRA connection between formal and informal learning was ranked to be the most important for future TEL research. Ten research challenges complement the CRAs with concrete and innovative research project proposals. Together, the CRAs and the research challenges can serve as a well-founded starting point for future research programmes in TEL.
