August 2013

Contributions are being solicited for a special issue of the Journal of Computer Assisted Learning (JCAL) on 'Learning Analytics in Massively Multiuser Virtual Environments and Courses'. The scope of the issue includes both massively multiplayer online games (e.g. World of Warcraft) and virtual worlds (e.g. Second Life) as well as massive open online courses (MOOCs), whether they be 'xMOOCs' delivered via one of the major MOOC platforms (Udacity, Coursera, edX) or connectivist-style 'cMOOCs' offered independently of those platforms.

The Call for Papers is available here

Proposals consisting of 500-word abstracts and 7-10 key references are due on 30 September 2013, and the deadline for submission of full manuscripts is 27 January 2014.

Queries regarding the special issue should be directed to (but please note that proposals and full manuscripts are not to be sent to this address - see the Call for Papers for submission instructions).

Kind regards,

Paul A. Kirschner (Open University of the Netherlands), JCAL Editor-in-Chief
Liesbeth Kirchner (Open University of the Netherlands), JCAL Associate Editor
Mark J. W. Lee (Charles Sturt University), JCAL Editor-in-Charge of Special Issues

Join us on August 28 for a CoCo seminar by Micah Goldwater titled "Science expertise and the prominence of causal knowledge

nina-dohn-189x252.jpgJoin us on 21st August for a seminar by Assoc. Professor Nina Bonderup Dohn titled “A tacit-knowledge perspective on engagement with networked learning activities” [more information]

Tea and coffee from 10:45am

Seminar from 11am-12.30pm

Location - Education Building (A35) Room 230

Dr Nina Bonderup Dohn is Associate Professor, Humanistic Information Science, at the Department of Design and Communication, University of Southern Denmark. She holds a PhD in learning theory from Aalborg University and an MA in philosophy and physics from Aarhus University. Her main research areas integrate epistemology, learning sciences, web communication and technology-mediated learning with a special focus on teaching and learning in higher education. While at CoCo, she will focus on the role of tacit, embodied knowledge developed in learners' primary contexts and on the significance of such contexts for motivation and learning in networked learning.


ACER ran a very interesting conference linking neuroscience with education (Melbourne, 5-6 August). An abstract of my talk appears below. I'm happy to share the slides. Abstracts etc for other presentations can be found here


Judy Kay, Peter Reimann, Elliot Diebold, and Bob Kummerfeld have a new paper on MOOCs coming out in IEEE Intelligent Systems. It's called MOOCs: So Many Learners, So Much Potential and you can get a copy here
