In a globalised knowledge economy, enabled by an increasingly pervasive digital, networked world, elearning possibilities are being explored by educational institutions. Learning and teaching is now able to be designed to enable learning anywhere and at anytime. This opens up exciting possibilities as well as challenges. Consequently, this special issue aims to provide evidence-based guidance through conceptual and research papers focused on elearning and digital futures in the 21st century. Specifically, this special issue calls for papers addressing topics including but not limited to the following:
- research which can inform evidence-based elearning policy and practice
- building the technological, pedagogical content knowledge (TPACK) capabilities fo educators
- implications and innovations in assessment approaches using new and emerging technologies
- the use of student technologies
- in addition to institution-led and teacher-led access to technologies
- challenges and solutions relating to digital citizenship, such as digital rights and responsibilities, digital literacy, digital law, and digital identity
- case studies of 'pathfinder' elearning initiatives
- mobile technologies and mobile applications
