As you know, we are currently running an IJTEL Young Researcher Special Issue on Ground-breaking Ideas in TEL. Now all abstracts and reviews from the first round are available in our group on TELeurope (you need to be registered and logged in to see them). We invite you to explore the visions of the young researchers in the community,  and to get in touch with them by posting your comments into the group blog. We are looking forward to hearing from you!

Derick Leony, Günter Beham, and myself have started a mindmap in order to document all efforts on Open Science in Technology Enhanced Learning. I am not going to conceal from you that we are using this mindmap as input for a publication. So feel free to add whatever you think is missing, and we will mention you in the acknowledgements! Also, co-authors are welcome!
