ICIEL Call for Papers

e-Learning is an ever evolving field in which there is a strong relationship between research and implementation. The International Conference on e-Learning (ICEL) brings together academic research and practical applications of e-Learning from a wide range of areas.

As a result of the South African #feesmustfall student protests that have affected many universities in the country, blended learning has become a key issue. Institutions are grappling to understand how to best redesign courses as blended to ensure that students can access education in times of trouble and still succeed in their studies. Learning analytics is another key issue, especially with regards the use of data to design interventions to provide an environment for the implementation of learning analytics and blended learning. So at ICEL in 2018 we look forward to submissions on a wide range of issues pertaining to e-Learning, but we are especially keen to see research into blended learning and learning analytics.

All Papers accepted for ICEL after the double-blind peer review process will be published in the conference proceedings, subject to author registration and payment.  The Proceedings is a published book with an ISBN and ISSN.
