Many of research domains are incorporated into education, such as Pedagogy, Educational psychology, Anthropology, Statistics, Information Science, Neuro science. Researchers use the technologies of these domains to enhance education such as enhance learning motivation, encourage active learning, and irritate critical thinking or creative thinking.

Educators have attempted to incorporate the existing educational theories while conducing emerging-technologies to enhance learning activities. With the development of emerging technologies, some new research trends appeared in education technology through the last several years. Such as Education Big Data, Flipped Classroom, Game-based Learning and Augmented Reality for Education.


The purpose of this special issue is to invite researchers who are engaged in studies to share and exchange their research experiences and findings of using emerging technologies to providing better teaching and learning.

About extended version of conference paper

If your conference paper is invited to submit your extended version to our SI, please make sure that your extended version includes the following bullet points:

1. the extended version of the conference papers should have at least 45% difference from the conference version and the difference should be reflected in the analysis, design, system, experiment/evaluation, data collection and analysis, and findings and discussions;
2. the paper should be NOT including too theoretical contents (e.g., math, symbols and equations) and the paper needs to have running examples with simulated or real datasets to explain correspondent equations, definitions, atoms, theorems, and proofs if those theoretical content is extremely important for readers to understand their research;
3. the paper should be strongly connected to the practical usages in distance education or e-learning, which means, a research is used for people to learn in the classroom (or with others at same place together at the same time) would never be accepted;
4. the paper needs to have experiment or evaluation with proper quantitative and/or qualitative data analysis, findings and discussions;
