Readership and Research After COVID-19
Keywords:distance learning, online learning, educational theory, distance communication, distance student experience, teaching presence
Post-pandemic trends can be seen in journals in two ways: readership and research. This editorial looks at both, beginning with a report on the readership statistics of the Journal over the past 12 months, followed by identification of readership preference, with a list of the most frequently accessed items in the Journal in 2022. A steadily higher journal readership has continued after the sudden growth in demand for information in open, flexible, and distance learning during the pandemic. This is followed with a list of papers in this fulsome issue, showing movement away from experiences in the sudden and enforced shift to online and distance learning, to the emerging era of changing perspectives and broader reflections.
