The exponential growth of online curricula is culminating in new
organizational culture models, new instructional design concepts and a new
set of policies for online educational institutions. The new Virtual College

Quantitative and qualitative research and scholarly reflection which
examines these phenomena is invited. Teaching online, part-time online
adjuncts, instructional quality, the management of distance education

Other related topics are also accepted.
Articles containing research on academic and administrative policies that
are re-aligned with 21st Century realities in Virtual Education are
especially encouraged and welcome.
