Dear Colleagues,

TOJDE is an open access peer-reviewed academic distance education journal.  I would like to stress the ever increasing demand on experts in distance education.  This increased demand rest heavily on the distance educators already in service. An understanding of the world of distance education today clearly requires a reliable knowledge of current articles at new levels and in new ways.  Moreover, it requires an ability to identify trends and persistent problems, as well as establishing relationship between particular needs, solving problems and goals to be achieved. TOJDE is intended to provide readers with scholarly and academic thinking and research in the field of distance education.

As the TOJDE editorial team, our special thanks go to Prof. Dr. Ugur DEMIRAY, the founder and former Editor-in-Chief since 2000. His commitment, concern, and enthusiasm is outstanding. Dr. DEMIRAY possesses excellent know-how and is always eager to accept new challenges and to perform with the highest standards and quality. We, as a new editorial team, hope to follow his footsteps by seeking new and innovative ideas and research in distance education in serving our readers and faithful followers.


Dr. T. Volkan YUZER
