2019 Special Issue "Paradigm Shifts in Global Higher Education and eLearning"

The world in the digital knowledge age has changed, and education is not immune to these changes. In a time when online technologies, networked learning spaces, mobile devices, cloud computing, and many other innovative tools have penetrated our lives and resulted in a paradigm shift. Therefore, we need to revisit what is known about the current state of the art in higher education and e-learning. The special issue aims to reflect changes in global higher education with a special focus on e-learning.

eLearn Magazine would like to acknowledge Dr. Aras Bozkurt of Anadolu University and Dr. Amy Hilbelink of Laureate International Education who served as the Guest Editors.
