What We're Looking For

We're looking for the following types of material:

  • hands-on, how-to articles
  • articles that illustrate what really worked for you or your colleagues
  • upcoming dates and events that are significant to any area in the distance learning community
  • tips and tricks that work with a specific distance learning technology
  • the scoop from a great DL conference you attended
  • policy issues that need to be addressed in DL
  • other topics that would benefit members of ARDLA and distance education
  • policy and research articles are welcome although we'd like them to be in a more relaxed tone than that of the traditional scholarly journal
