Addressing the challenges of the 21st Century Paradigm for Virtual Colleges
Feature Editors:
Larry Davies, Ed.D. - Senior Instructional Designer
Virtual College, Miami Dade College, Miami, Florida, USA
Marti Anderson, Ph.D. - Education and Teacher Training Consultant
Bangkok, Thailand

The exponential growth of online curricula is culminating in new
organizational culture models, new instructional design concepts and a
new set of policies for online educational institutions. The new Virtual
College is managed by Virtual administrators and instruction is
delivered by Virtual faculty. Virtual students are mainly
non-traditional students in a demographic that is increasingly female
and in an older age group.

Virtual college faculty, guiding courses delivered entirely online, face
an interesting set of unprecedented challenges: they may never meet
their students, they may teach for multiple virtual colleges, and they
may never have face-to-face interactions with the inhabitants of the
institutions at which they teach. These changes have important
implications for the nature, quality and management of online curricular
and courses development, and online instruction. There is an increasing
awareness that, indeed, online learning carries with it far-reaching
implications on all aspects of higher education.

Quantitative and qualitative research and scholarly reflection which
examines these phenomena is invited. Teaching online, part-time online
adjuncts, instructional quality, the management of distance education
programs, organizational structures in distance education organizations,
faculty workload issues, policy issues, and the economic and social
impact of these phenomena are all invited topics.

Other related topics are also accepted.

Articles containing research on academic and administrative policies
that are re-aligned with 21st Century realities in Virtual Education are
especially encouraged and welcome.

Who May Submit:
Submissions are welcome from distance education administrators, full
time and part time faculty teaching online, and others involved in the
process of teaching or managing online courses. Please identify your
submission with keyword: VIRTUAL-2

More Than a Sport: A Look at Scootering’s Evolution

Too many people do not have a clear idea about what is a Scooter; and much less than there is a sport based on it. Besides, it is a sport that has evolved a lot from its beginning, but if you do not know too much about the sport is hard to see it as more than a kid game.However, this sport is more than just kids and young people making scooter tricks in a square; scootering is a kind of culture and a lifestyle that has more than 20 years growing to become what it is today.For this reason, we…See More

Shawn Mitchell replied to Rob Schoonveld's discussion Twitter vs Edupln
"My preference is this website is best. Twitter is used for social purpose and EDUPLN is used for professional discussion which you cannot discuss on social platforms."
