Special Issue

Covid-19 and the Future of e-Learning

coronavirus-covid-19-design-vector Covid-19 has achieved in a few months what years of promoting e-learning could not have achieved previously. Schools, colleges and universities around the world have swiftly switched to online delivery modes despite the steep-learning curves and a lack of time for preparation and detailed planning. Students too had to adapt quickly to be taught via new platforms such as Zoom and Teams and to increase the use of narrated lectures, podcasts, online quizzes and other e-learning materials in order to complete their courses and programmes of study. In addition, workers around the world, temporarily or permanently out of work have been engaging with online courses at an unprecedented rate to learn new skills and improve their job prospects in the post-covid world.

In this special issue of EJEL we are calling for papers that address the implementation of e-learning during the covid-19 crisis and lessons-learned for future application of e-learning in education, including the work-based learning. We are particularly interested in experiential case studies, surveys and evaluations addressing some of the topics listed below.

Potential topics include but are not limited to:

  • Educational institutions’ responses to covid-19
  • Evaluations of e-learning technologies
  • Blended learning models
  • Stakeholders (students, staff, organisations, government) perspectives on different modes of online delivery
  • Comparative studies on pre- and post-covid e-learning methods
  • E-assessment
  • Online pedagogies
  • Blended learning
  • Matching online learning activities to learning objectives
  • Instructional design and pedagogy “engineering”
  • Synchronous vs asynchronous modes of delivery
  • Cost/benefit analysis of different e-learning models
  • “Zoom fatigue”
  • Data protection and privacy issues
  • Accessibility and equal opportunities.

 The submission deadline for all papers is December 20th  2020.
