Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Agile learning and blended learning are two emerging approaches to effective learning. The former focuses on flexibility, personalization and collaboration in the learning process, whereas the latter focuses on the integration of traditional learning with technologies such as e-learning, mobile learning, intelligent tutoring and learning analytics. With the common aims of enhancing learning effectiveness and enriching learning experience, agile learning and blended learning may complement each other to derive new methods and practices that benefit learners with diversified learning needs.

Agile blended learning is an attempt to integrate agile learning and blended learning with an aim to improve learning effectiveness and enrich learning experience, especially for learners with diversified learning needs. It best suits the learning needs of city-dwellers. Busy and demanding learners in modern cities find that agile blended learning fits them holistically, as the approach expedites the customization of how individual learners go about their learning, mediated by technology. It allows choices of learning materials, tasks and routes with technology-enabled advisory assistance.

This Special Issue will focus on how the latest advances in technology can be effectively used in agile blended learning. We welcome the submission of original papers reporting novel applications of technology in agile learning, blended learning and their integration.

Topics of interests include, but are not limited to:

  • Adaptive learning;
  • Agile learning approaches and practices;
  • Blended learning approaches and practices;
  • Computer-supported collaborative learning;
  • Content development for agile blended learning;
  • Experience in agile blended learning;
  • Flexibility in the learning process;
  • Game-based learning;
  • Instructional technology;
  • Mobile learning and ubiquitous learning;
  • Online platform and environment;
  • Open learning and open educational resources;
  • Personalized and customized learning;
  • Social media and networking for learning;
  • Technology-mediated learning;
  • Virtual reality for teaching and learning.
