Call for Proposals: International Journal of Web-Based Learning and Teaching Technologies.

International Journal of Web-Based Learning and Teaching Technologies is now included in ProQuest's CSA Social Science Collection, the Library & Information Science Abstracts (LISA)!

The Editors-in-Chief invite you to consider submitting a manuscript for inclusion in this scholarly journal.
Mission of IJWLTT:  The mission of the International Journal of Web-Based Learning and Teaching Technologies (IJWLTT)is to contribute to the broadening of the overall body of knowledge regarding the multi-dimensional aspects of Web-based technologies in contemporaneous educational contexts, assisting researchers, practitioners, and decision makers to design more effective learning systems and scenarios. IJWLTT explores the technical, social, cultural, organizational, human, cognitive, and commercial impact of technology. In addition, IJWLTT endeavors a broad range of authors and expands the dialogue to address the interplay among the diverse and disparate interests affected by technology in education. The journal seeks to explore the impact of Web-based technology on the design, implementation and evaluation of the learning and teaching process, as well as the development of new activities, relationships, skills, and competencies for the various actors implied in such processes.
