AIMS & SCOPE
Every issue of this truly interdisciplinary, rigorously refereed Journal
contains a wealth of information: articles of value and interest to you,
the educator, researcher, scientist. Designed to convey the latest in research
reports and critical analyses to both theorists and practitioners, the
Journal addresses four primary areas of concern:
The term "education" is viewed in its broadest sense by the Journal's editors. The use of computer-based technologies at all levels of the formal
education system, business and industry, home-schooling, lifelong learning and unintentional learning environments, are examined. The wide variety
of areas that the Journal explores is reflected in its distinguished Editorial Board, which includes prominent educational researchers, social
and behavioral scientists, and computer and information experts.
- The outcome effects of educational computing applications, featuring findings from a variety of disciplinary perspectives which include the social, behavioral, and physical sciences;
- The design and development of innovative computer hardware and software for use in educational environments;
- The interpretation and implications of research in educational computing fields;
- The theoretical and historical foundations of computer-based education.
This single Journal provides an international forum for interdisciplinary communication on an increasingly significant subject: research into the
applications, effects, and implications of computer-based education.

Special Issue on: Recommender Systems and Group Awareness in Collaborative Social Learning Environments
Guest Editors: Dr. Tiffany Y. Tang, Department of Computer Science, Kean University, USA (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Dr. Tanja Engelmann, Knowledge Media Research Center, Germany (email@example.com)
Overview of the special issue
On one hand, there are increasing amounts of digital content and online educational resources readily available to both educators and learners; on the other hand, various social learning tools act as more efficient channels to distribute useful resources and shared learning experiences. Hence, filtering information to tailor group-wise and individual interests and forming learning groups have emerged as important issues for both educators and learners alike. Recommender Systems are known to implicitly or explicitly observe users’ online activities, learn their likes and dislikes and make personalized suggestions accordingly (Adomavicius & Tuzhilin, 2005; Balabanovic & Shoham, 1997; Burke, 2002). They have been extensively studied in domains other than education.
Topics of interest
The topics of interest include but are not limited to:
- Group Recommendation and Group Awareness Tools in education and learning settings
- Group Awareness Tools and Group Recommendation for early childhood or special education
- The pre- and post-assessment of recommendations and group awareness
- Usability of educational Recommender Systems and Group Awareness Tools
- Visualizations of recommended items and of group aspects to made aware to the others in practice
- Recommender Systems and Group Awareness Tools for educators
- Case studies of educational recommender system implementations and group awareness implementations
