The Journal of Teaching and Learning with Technology (JoTLT) is "an international journal dedicated to enhancing student learning through the use of technology. JoTLT is focused on teaching at the university level and will not accept manuscripts relating to teaching in the K-12 area. The goal of this journal is to provide a platform for academicians all over the world to promote, share, and discuss what does and does not work when using technology. Submissions will be accepted in the following categories: Quick Hits: A Quick Hit is a brief contribution describing innovative procedures, courses, or materials involving technology (1500 words or less). Each contribution should include sufficient detail to allow another educator to use the Quick Hit in his or her own course. Empirical Manuscript: Manuscripts in this category should provide qualitative or quantitative evidence demonstrating the effectiveness of the technology in increasing student learning. Each manuscript should include sufficient detail to allow another educator to use the technology in his or her own course. Book Reviews: Manuscripts in this category will provide an overview of a book pertinent to the journal readership that is no more than two years old as well as a brief discussion of the books usefulness. Case Studies: Manuscripts in this category will detail the implementation of the use of technology in various settings."
