More on this journal...
Technology enhanced learning is the best term to describe the domain of knowledge society technologies as applied in the learning context. "Learning for anyone, at any time, at any place" is the motto. With the shift towards the knowledge society, the change of working conditions and the high-speed evolution of information and communication technologies, peoples' knowledge and skills need continuous updating.
Learning, based on collaborative working, creativity, multidisciplinary, adaptiveness, intercultural communication and problem solving, has taken on an important role in everyday life. The learning process is becoming pervasive, both for individuals and organisations, in formal education, in the professional context and as part of leisure activities. Learning should be accessible to every citizen, independent of age, education, social status and tailored to his/her individual needs. To meet these social challenges is a leading issue of research on the use of technology to support learning (e.g. The Technology Enhanced Learning Action within the 7th Framework Program for Research and Technological Development).
In the context of the knowledge society, the focus of research in this area has been set on applications of technologies for user-centered learning, building on the concept of human learning and on sound pedagogical principles, with the key objectives to be:
- To increase the efficiency of learning for individuals, groups
- To facilitate transfer and sharing of knowledge in organisations
- To contribute to a deeper understanding of the learning process by exploring links between human learning, cognition and technologies
- To promote humanistic visions for a better world based on open learning for all
IJTEL aims to establish value-adding knowledge transfer and personal development channels in three distinctive areas: academia, industry and government, which summarise the three pillars where a new scientific publication can play a significant role.
IJTEL publishes original research papers providing significant results, and also short communications about innovative ideas and news, announcements and reviews regarding the topics of the journal. IJTEL is an international journal; country-specific studies are considered valuable only if the local practice instantiates an issue or question that pertains to technology-enhanced learning in general.

Remote learning in a pandemic
14 October, 2021
For many years advocates of e-learning and online approaches to education touted the many benefits. Ultimately, however, it was the emergence of a novel coronavirus that gave us the COVID-19 pandemic that made e-learning an essential rather than a luxury for many students the world over. Research published in the International Journal of Technology Enhanced Learning, looks at how school and university closures, lockdowns, quarantines, and the urgent need to quash the virus, have pushed us into a world of online and e-learning as never before. Mohammed Akour, Hiba Al Sghaier, and Yazan Al Shboul of Yarmouk University in Irbid, Jordan and Mamdouh Alenezi of the Prince Sultan University in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, make the obvious point that students are the focus of education but this is often overlooked in the rush to recruit students, fulfill curriculum obligations, and achieve targets. The COVID-19 pandemic has led to major changes in our outlook and approach, however, and students are now more properly the focus once again. As such, educators need to consider the way in which remote learning has affected their students over the months since the pandemic arose and to see how e-learning might be implemented for the benefit of future students after the pandemic and ahead of the almost inevitable next emergent pathogen [...]More details...
