Re: IJVPLE special issue on "Real Education in Virtual Worlds" published

Lee, Mark
Dear colleagues,

Following on from my earlier email (copied below), I thought you might be interested to know that IGI has now made the Guest Editorial Preface to the IJVPLE special issue on "Real Education in Virtual Worlds" freely available on their website:

Dear colleagues,

Some time ago, along with my colleagues, Yu-Ju Lan and Tim Xie, I guest edited a special issue of the International Journal of Virtual and Personal Learning Environments (IJVPLE) on "Real Education in Virtual Worlds". I am pleased to report that the issue has finally been published as Volume 4, No. 2 of IJVPLE. 

The contents of the special issue are listed below. Unfortunately, the journal is closed access, and the publisher's (IGI Global's) copyright policies prohibit me from distributing copies of the issue or any of the articles therein. I'm hoping, however, that you will be able to get your hands on a physical copy of the issue and/or electronic copies of any of the articles in which you may be interested through your respective institutional libraries, or by way of inter-library loan.
