JIME is a peer reviewed open access online journal in educational technology that focuses on the implications and use of digital media in higher or post-compulsory education. It aims to foster a multidisciplinary and intellectually rigorous debate on both the theory and practice of interactive media in higher or post-compulsory education. JIME was launched in September, 1996.
In a New York Times article, Pappano (2012) declared 2012 as ‘the year of the MOOC’. It was a year which saw a surge in interest in this new, open form of online higher education. While the initial hype around Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) subsided and their form has changed significantly from the first large-scale courses, more learners than ever are registered with the platforms, which have attracted substantial levels of investment.
JIME is pleased to announce the release of our latest Virtual Special Collection on the decade of the MOOC. Comprised of an overview of the major events and trends in relation to MOOCs over the past ten years (Jordan and Goshtasbpour, 2022) and a further 25 papers published in JIME and arranged around four main themes of situating MOOCs; learning design and roles; MOOCs and languages; and accessibility and inclusion.
