Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

1) The issue introduction includes the background and the importance of this research area.

Teaching and learning in tertiary education has become more online dependent. Although online learning and teaching has a long history, it has flourished recently due to technological advancements as well as environmental demands such as COVID-19. At the same time, technology can enhance learning in a variety of other ways. Technology can support student-centered learning by providing connections between peers, staff, and resources, and making learning more engaging and accessible. Technology can assist academics with assessment, detecting plagiarism, and automated feedback. Learning management systems provide large datasets that, with the aid of learning analytics, enable a deeper understanding of how students interact with the system as well as with their peers.

2) The aim and scope of the Special Issue shall be highlighted.

This issue focuses on how technology enhances teaching and learning in tertiary education.

3) Suggested themes shall be listed.

In particular, this Special issue encourages submissions on the following topics: (1) online learning design; (2) project-based learning; (3) inclusive learning engagement in online learning; (4) technology-enhanced learning; (5) AI or deep-learning techniques applied based on interactive data including emotion; (6) learning analytics.
