Is SCoPE open to educational technology research as well?

Or is it only the functional aspect of educational research we are talking about?

  Hi Baljeet, and welcome to SCoPE!

Absolutely, we are open to educational technology research. In fact, I expect it will be a main focus for our activities. During the first phase of the SCoPE project we dropped the "e" from "elearning" in the community description, thinking that it might encourage a focus that may no longer be as relevant or necessary as it once was. What do you think? Was that a mistake? I encourage you to raise these questions and others in our SCoPE: Next Steps discussion where we are sorting through these types of issues.

Thanks Sylvia.

Well I feel the elearning is a big part of edtech. Besides we have lots of expertise here at SFU itself. Besides the people Paul mentioned at http://scope.lidc.sfu.ca/mod/forum/discuss.php?d=20 , we have Vive Kumar and Marek Hatala as well. I am sure they will be happy to contribute to a forum like this. I might be wrong here, but my impression is that elearning supporters will tend to use these kind of forums more often than people carrying out pure educational research.

Regards
