Journal of Information Technology Case and Application Research (JITCAR)

Special Issue on Online Education

Online education in its various modes has been growing steadily worldwide due to the confluence of new technologies, global adoption of internet, and intensifying demand for a workforce trained periodically for the ever-evolving digital economy.  Pandemic Covid-19 has accelerated this transformation.  Global, country, institutional, curriculum/program, and micro level factors impact quantity and quality of online education.  Micro level factors include technology, professors, students, and course characteristics and their interactions. Several questions will remain unanswered: What new pedagogical theories and technologies were at play and continue to emerge? What innovative individual, disciplinary, and/or organizational shifts took place to ensure effective learning? How do we maintain, extend, and innovate on these strategies going forward? This special issue is dedicated to the analysis of the evolution of traditional in-class education towards blended, hybrid, flipped, synchronous online, asynchronous online and combinations thereof.  Topics for submission can include the following and any other relevant subject on this theme:

  • Efficacy of Online Education in Various Modes
  • Impact of Institutional Characteristics on Implementation of Online Education
  • Impediments to Globalization of Online Education
  • Effectiveness of Online Education Platforms like Blackboard, Moodle, Zoom, Webex
  • New Rules and Regulations for Online Education
