The aim of the IJIOE is to provide the field of online higher education with quality knowledge about what is going on in important areas of the field, with a specific emphasis on what is new and likely to affect the field. IJIOE has a focus on Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics (STEAM) online education, including related fields such as healthcare. IJIOE is the purveyor of “WISDOM” about the field, providing short articles, discussions with author experts and reviews of methods for moving the field forward in selected areas.
The scope of IJIOE includes all of online higher education, but has a loose focus on STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics) and healthcare. Articles are managed by “stream editors,” experts in specific streams of interests within this scope, including disciplines within the above content areas. From time to time, streams will be started that are thought to influence the major streams.

Special Issue: Innovations in Online Engineering Education
John M. Long
Submission Deadline: October 1, 2019
With the rise of the internet, education has been eager to adopt its associated technologies to advance pedagogical techniques and learning to an ever-increasing pool of students. Teaching and learning are no longer confined to bricks-and-mortar institutions like schools, workplaces, and libraries. Online learning is increasingly seen as a mainstream and cost-effective way to bring education to people who otherwise might have difficulty accessing education through traditional, 20th century means. Students who find significant benefits in online education include those who live in remote parts of the world, where travel to the nearest education institution is difficult or expensive, full-time workers who do not have easy access to after-hours classes, or who travel frequently and thus are not in one place long enough to attend a full education program, military personnel on deployment at remote bases or at sea, the disabled or house-bound, and the incarcerated.
In the past 20 years, distance education has given way to online education, and has experienced explosive growth in many fields, such as business and economics, liberal arts, and some sciences. In the field of engineering, there has been gradual growth in online education, especially at the Master's and Engineering-Technology levels.
The International Journal of Innovation in Online Education is pleased to call for papers for a special issue showcasing new ideas and techniques for teaching engineering online. Submissions are sought from all areas where engineering is taught, such as college-level at associate, undergraduate, and masters programs; and also industry-specific training programs, such as automotive, aerospace, electronics, or manufacturing.
POTENTIAL TOPIC AREAS
Given the tectonic shifts in society/culture, global/interconnected economies, the changing world of work, and the rapid advances in technology, how might online learning itself shift or evolve in response to these changes? Please think out of the box, but here are a few seed ideas:
