This special issue of the KM&EL international journal is dedicated to coverage of technology in higher education and human performance. Fierce competition, globalization, and a dynamic economy have forced organizations and individuals to search for new ways to strengthen their competitive advantages. In pursuance this, improvement of learning and human performance for sustainable development has been recognized as a key strategic issue. It becomes crucial to help learners in educational institutions and knowledge workers in various organizations to improve their self-directed and life-long learning, especially via using information and communication technologies in the digital economy.


While implementing technology-enhanced learning, a variety of aspects have to be taken into account including learning and instructional theories, educational technology, curriculum development, knowledge management, performance evaluation, organizational culture, etc. This special issue aims to provide a forum for academics and practitioners to explore issues related to the design, evaluation and application of technologies in higher education and human performance development.


The topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • E-learning in higher education
  • Distance education and lifelong learning
  • Computer-assisted learning
  • Instructional design in online learning
  • Online curriculum development
  • Web-based corporate training
  • Knowledge management
  • Adult learning and human performance
  • Impact of technology on learning


We are interested in both theoretical and practical papers that aim to improve learning and human performance by applying the latest technological advances. We would like to stimulate interest in the issues across academia, practice, industry, research and policy, and therefore we welcome focused papers from all sectors.
