MERLOT Conference 2009 – San Jose


Posted in Conference Info by janepmoore on July 6, 2009

joltDo you have a great paper on online education that you’re just dying to publish? If you do, and if you’re coming to the MIC in San Jose this August, then be sure to attend the JOLT workshop on Friday afternoon from 4:00-4:30. What is JOLT? It’s the Journal of Online Learning and Teaching, a quarterly peer-reviewed open access online journal published by MERLOT and freely available at ? Since the inception of JOLT in 2005, we have published 178 papers on a wide range of online learning topics by authors from 11 countries and 6 continents. During the past year alone, 70,000 visitors from 175 countries have come to the JOLT website.

JOLT seeks papers on all aspects of online learning in one of the following categories: research papers, case studies, position papers, concept papers, and instructional design notes. Details for interested authors are available on the JOLT Guidelines page ( ).

At this year’s MIC, the JOLT co-editors will present a workshop entitled JOLT the World with Your Scholarly Work for potential authors to acquaint them not only with JOLT, but also how to submit a paper, and how the JOLT peer review process works. In addition, the results of a recent survey of past JOLT authors will be discussed. Ample time will also be allowed for questions. Who knows, even if you don’t have a paper you’re dying to publish right now, you might just come away from the workshop fired up to write a future article for JOLT – or to become a JOLT peer reviewer.

If such a session interests you, then join us on Friday afternoon from 4:00-4:30 in the San Martin room!

Michelle Pilati and Ed Perry, JOLT Editors
