*** Topics of interest ***

The goal of this joint Special Issue is to provide an overview of most
recent emerging and “fringe” learning technologies. Sample topics of
interest include:

1. Virtual, augmented and mixed reality: game-based learning, edutainment,
gamification, intrinsic integration of game mechanics, virtual worlds and
communities for education and training, digital humans and avatars in
education, work-based and augmented learning

2. Learning at Scale: service-oriented architectures for learning, MOOCs,
interoperability of learning systems, standards for knowledge sharing, open
educational resources, linked open data, ontologies and reasoning

3. Ubiquitous and wearable computing: educational applications of
sensor-based learning, smart watches and activity trackers, body sensor
networks, ego-vision devices and life-logging equipment, Internet of Things,
smart environments, context-aware services and tools

4. Social computing: educational data mining and filtering on social
networks, social media for e-learning and e-assessment, social learning at
scale, informal learning in social communities, peer review and assessment,
trust and reputation in social communities

5. Big Data and data analytics: modeling of learners and learning processes,
learning analytics, educational data mining, student profiling, behavioral
and emotional analytics, learning data visualization, quantified self

6. Intelligent systems: adaptive learning, recommender systems, tools for
smart tutoring and training, pedagogical agents and assistants, course and
material personalization

7. Learning in the making: 3D printers and computer-controlled fabrication
devices, open micro-controller, sensor and actuator technologies, smart
programming environments, robotics

8. Human-computer interaction: natural and multi-modal interfaces,
conversational agents, affective computing, interactive tabletops and
surfaces, innovative interaction devices and techniques

*** Submission instructions ***

This partial list is not exclusive and does not cover all novel learning
technologies. As a part of the submission letter the authors are requested
to argue why the technology presented in the submission should be counted as
“emergent” and “cutting edge”.

Submitted papers must describe original research which is not published nor
currently under review by other journals or conferences. Authors are
responsible for understanding and adhering to submission guidelines
published on the IEEE Computer Society website (http://www.computer.org).

Authors are invited to submit manuscripts focused on odd labeled topics
directly to Transactions on Emerging Topics in Computing (TETC) at
https://mc.manuscriptcentral.com/tetc-cs and papers focused on even labeled
topics directly to Transactions on Learning Technologies (TLT) at

In special cases, authors are welcome to submit to the journal of their
choice. Although with the above choice the authors are indicating which
Transaction represents the primary target of their submission, they should
be aware that papers may be published in TETC or TLT depending on the
availability of space with the final allocation at the discretion of the
Editor-in-Chief of the respective Transactions.

Correspondence should be addressed to: InnoTechEduComp-SI@polito.it
