Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

We are pleased to announce this upcoming Special Issue looking at technology in Higher Education: something that has enabled institutions globally to respond in a flexible and responsive way to the unexpected challenges of the cessation of face-to-face teaching as many countries have instituted social distancing and closure of educational campuses.

This issue offers the opportunity to share innovative ideas and established practice that show the ways that technology can be used in teaching in Higher Education, with a focus on those aspects that are distinct from those of other educational contexts—for example, managing to engage students who are adults, who have different interests and pressures, and who need different and distinct support. Moreover, we invite contributions that show how technology can enable education that meets the need to create graduates who can operate and flourish in the context of the 4th industrial revolution. This requires Higher Education to enable students to deal with the cascade of information and data and arm them with the skills to critically select reliable sources and to manipulate and manage data. Technology also offers support for virtual learning and collaboration. Given the experiences of 2020 and the global responses to the coronavirus, this issue is also an opportunity to share evidence-based approaches to moving learning to entirely online.

In all areas of knowledge, there is a set of basic concepts or ideas that are essential to understand. A very common problem that arises among students is the difficulty in acquiring these concepts. One way to solve this problem is by carrying out small knowledge tests where these concepts are put into practice. To develop these tests there are multiple options, however, in general, the applications that allow for these tests to be implemented are usually very complex and are often included within other larger systems. This article describes a tool to develop short online courses that presents an interface and a functionality that allows a teacher to create and manage courses in a very simple and intuitive way. In the same way, it offers the student an Android app to be able to access the courses published by the teacher to be able to take them, as well as to manage all the activity of it. Full article
