Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Research in the field of learner–computer interaction (LCI) involves the analysis, implementation, and utilization of interactive technologies to enhance and boost knowledge acquisition. Indeed, e-learning is a multifaceted process that embodies several complex issues, such as human, software, information, and interaction. The field of LCI provides indispensable tools for building an educational environment which can be tailored to learners’ needs, preferences, and interests. This environment has to offer an adaptive and personalized learning experience to students in order to further modernize the educational process.

LCI is the common research ground for scientists of different fields, such as educational software and technology, human–machine communication, pedagogical sciences, and psychology.

LCI is the medium to develop novel and more sophisticated learning environments as well as to further support intelligent tutoring systems, enabling learning in a meaningful and effective way using a variety of computing technologies, and aiming to replicate the demonstrated benefits of one-to-one, personalized tutoring.

Despite the several research efforts that have been presented, there is fertile ground for more research in the field.

This Special Issue welcomes original research papers as well as review articles and short communications in the aforementioned area. Topics of interest include but are not limited to the following:

  • Learner–computer interaction;
  • Intelligent user interfaces;
  • Adaptive user interfaces;
  • Tangible interaction;
  • Intelligent tutoring systems;
  • Collaborative and group learning, communities of practice, and social networks;
  • Gamification, educational games, simulation-based learning, and serious games;
  • Adaptive educational hypermedia systems;
  • Educational robotics;
  • Human in the loop, understanding human learning on the web in a virtual (digital) world;
  • Personalized and adaptive learning environments;
  • Instructional design principles or design patterns for educational environments.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.

Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a double-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Education Sciences is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.

Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1400 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
