New issue published

Dear Readers:

We recently published Issue 22:3 of Online Learning (OLJ).  This issue of OLJ includes a collection of articles developed from the latest Online Learning Consortium conferences, OLC Accelerate 2017 and OLC Innovate 2018. The six articles selected for this special issue represent the best of the 623 papers ultimately accepted for presentation at these two venues, as determined by the conference track chairs and the editorial staff of the Online Learning journal.  These papers were also blind peer reviewed prior to acceptance for publication.


This issue also includes six articles from our regular submission process. The studies in this section examine facilitation of productive discourse, uses of social media, interaction, and student success in online learning environments.

Please read, discuss, and share these new studies and consider contributing to the scholarly dialogue represented in OLJ.
