Technology Enhanced Learning (TEL) is a very broad and increasingly mature research field. It encompasses a variety of research topics, ranging from the study of different pedagogical approaches, teaching techniques and strategies for online learning to the application of advanced technologies in educational settings (e.g., different kinds of mobile devices, sensors and sensor networks that provide the technical foundation for context-aware, ubiquitous learning). The TEL community has also been exploring the use of Artificial Intelligence technologies and techniques for the development of intelligent learning environments capable of adapting to the learners' needs and preferences and providing learners with personalized learning experience. Recognizing the potential of online social networks, social media and Web-based social software tools as learning platforms for online education, the TEL community has poured significant time and effort into researching how these popular technologies could be combined with appropriate pedagogical approaches to make learning experience more engaging, satisfying and successful. Among the most important results of these research efforts are personal learning environments that allow learners to create mash-ups of diverse social software tools based on their own needs and preferences, as well as to create and maintain their online learning networks. Undeniably, technological advances are making education more accessible to an increasing number of people worldwide; to fully exploit the huge benefit the technology is offering, the TEL community is exploring efficient approaches for adapting learning resources to address language, generation and cultural specificities. Aiming to make learning accessible to all, the community has also focused on the development of solutions for learners with special needs. Finally, it should be noted that all the above mentioned research efforts of the TEL community are finding their applications in different learning contexts and domains, including formal education and informal learning, as well as workplace learning in small, medium and large companies.

Since the scope of TEL research is constantly evolving, the above given overview of the current research efforts does not aim to be exhaustive by any means. Instead, its purpose is to give some insights into the breadth of research topics and challenges that the edited book aims to cover. Accordingly, the recommended topics include, but are not limited to, the following:

Technological Foundation for Advanced Educational Solutions
- Social software and social computing
- Semantic technologies (including Semantic Web technologies and natural language processing)
- Mobile technologies, sensors, context-aware and ubiquitous computing
- Educational data mining and learning analytics
- Technologies for interoperability, sharing and integration of educational resources
- Learner modeling and other technologies for personalization and adaptation
- Open learning content and tools

Pedagogical Foundation for Advanced Educational Solutions
- Collaborative learning and knowledge building
- Problem- and project-based learning
- Learner motivation and engagement
- Game-based learning
- Learning design and different design approaches

Individual and Organizational Learning
- Self-regulated learning
- Communities of learners & Communities of practice
- Knowledge management and organizational learning
- Lifelong learning
- Informal learning

Accommodating Diversities
- Accessible learning for all
- Addressing language, generation and cultural differences


Prospective authors interested to contribute to the edited book are invited to submit on or before September 20, 2012 a 1-page proposal to (cc. clearly explaining the mission and concerns of the proposed chapter. Full chapters are expected to be submitted by October 20, 2012. All submitted chapters will be reviewed by by two (2) to three (3) reviewers and the final decision of acceptance or rejection will be based on their recommendations.
