      Dear colleagues,

      Vol. 9, No. 3 of the MERLOT Journal of Online Learning and Teaching (JOLT at http://jolt.merlot.org/) has been published and is available online. The contents of the issue are listed below. In this issue you will find 12 articles concerned with various aspects of online learning and teaching. I hope you will find several articles of interest, and that you will take the time to forward this notice to colleagues who might also be interested in JOLT. (If they, too, would like to register to receive notification of newly published JOLT issues, they may do so here: http://grapevine.merlot.org/joltnews/joltlistserv.php?action=add .)

      The next issue, Vol. 9, No. 4, will be released in the coming weeks. You may also be interested to know that following the success of the special issue on Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) that was published earlier this year, the first 2014 issue (Vol. 10, No. 1) of the journal will include a special section containing a further five articles on MOOCs.

      Kind regards,


      Mark J. W. Lee
      Editor, MERLOT Journal of Online Learning and Teaching
