The use of technology in learning and education has been rapidly evolving with increased learning taking place outside of traditional educational environments. Flipped classrooms have become a popular way for teachers to engage their students in the learning process. Online education has matured and gained widespread acceptance, and now new open learning courses — both informal offerings as well as courses provided by traditional universities — are providing access to students who might not have been served by traditional educational environments. Social networks are linking information and people in ways both familiar and unfamiliar, spreading new ideas and creating connections.
In a fields of study — e-learning and education in information technology — that already have experienced rapid changes, we are now seeing a change in how the subject itself is viewed. The EdITLib Digital Library has always reflected these changes, as researchers and teachers use new technologies and learning techniques and share their experiences and results in conference papers, journal articles, reports, and eBooks.
To reflect the broader recognition of the intersection of learning and technology, EdITLib, the Education and Information Technology Library, is being renamed LearnTechLib, The Learning & Technology Library with the new domain learntechlib.org. It is our hope that this name change will encourage and inspire researchers, teachers, and students to explore new and effective learning methods and technologies inside and outside the classroom.
The topic of "education" as distinct from "learning" will still make up many of the resources in the library. We see learning, not as an alternative to education, but a broader subject which includes and overlaps with education. The name change reflects these changes.
In order to preserve compatibility and expected behavior with existing systems, the editlib.org domain will continue to be active indefinitely with the exact same content as the LearnTechLib.org website. However, we encourage you to update your links and proxies to reflect the domain name change. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you have questions about this.
If you are a current subscriber, the domain change will not affect your subscription or access to resources.
