Call For Papers

The rapidly evolving field of learning technologies continues to offer new and innovative approaches for promoting student engagement and facilitating knowledge acquisition. One such approach is the use of educational escape rooms (EERs), which have become increasingly popular in recent years. Despite the potential benefits of EERs, there is a growing need for research that examines their effectiveness and identifies best practices for their design and implementation.

In light of these developments, the editorial board of the Electronic Journal of e-Learning is pleased to announce a call for papers for a special issue on educational escape rooms. This special issue will bring together the latest research and perspectives on EERs, and will explore the following themes:

The effectiveness of EERs as learning and collaborative tools.
Best practices for designing and implementing EERs.
The role of narrative, gameplay, and other immersive elements in EERs.
The use of EERs in different educational contexts (e.g., K-12, higher education, professional development, corporate training).
The development and evaluation of design frameworks for EERs.
The use of technology (e.g., virtual and augmented reality) in enhancing the EER experience.
The challenges and limitations of using EERs as learning tools.
The use of Artificial Intelligence (AI) tools in designing and implementing EERs.
The impact of EERs on student motivation and engagement.
The relationship between EERs and other forms of game-based learning.
The role of cultural and social factors in the design and implementation of EERs.
The development and evaluation of assessment tools for measuring the impact of EERs on learning outcomes.
The ethical considerations of using EERs in educational settings.
The exploration of the potential for EERs to support diversity and inclusion in education.

We welcome submissions from a variety of disciplines, including education, psychology, computer science, and game design. Both empirical research articles and review articles are welcome, as are case studies that highlight the practical applications of EERs in educational settings.

Submission Guidelines

Submissions should be original and not have been published previously or be under consideration for publication elsewhere. All submissions will undergo a double-blind peer-review process. Manuscripts should be prepared in accordance with the Electronic Journal of e-Learning author guidelines, which can be found on the journal's website.
