MERLOT Journal of Online Learning and Teaching (JOLT)

The MERLOT Journal of Online Learning and Teaching (JOLT) is a peer-reviewed, online publication addressing the scholarly use of multimedia resources in education. The first issue of this new journal appeared online in July 2005 and included a number of invited papers from various disciplines. The Journal is now seeking manuscripts for its coming issues.
To be considered for the Spring 2010 issue, manuscripts must be submitted by November 15, 2009. The JOLT Editorial Board seeks to publish all works in a timely manner. While deadlines are set for each issue, space considerations and editorial decisions may delay the publication of a manuscript.

The objectives of MERLOT JOLT are to:
  • Enable faculty to use technology effectively in teaching and learning by learning from a community of researchers and scholars;
  • Enable academic programs to design and deploy academic technology to optimize teaching and learning;
  • Build a community around the research and scholarly use of multimedia educational resources.

JOLT welcomes papers on all aspects of the use of online multimedia educational resources for learning and teaching. Topics may include, but are not limited to: learning theory and the use of multimedia to improve student learning; instructional design theory and application; online learning and teaching initiatives; use of technology in online education; innovative online learning and teaching practices.
