There is a new, peer-reviewed research journal entitled “International Journal of Virtual and Personal Learning Environments” published quarterly by the Information Resources Management Association. Thanks to Martin Weller for the link.
The journal discusses some of the issues that currently inform the VLE/Web 2.0 debate. The first two sample articles (‘The Centralisation Dilemma’ and ‘e-learning in the Cloud’) are of particular interest to academics, library and IT professionals. Some of these discussions inform the development of the University’s new online and low-residency learning courses (e.g. MA Songwriting).
