Following my earlier email about the publication of the the special issue of Journal of Computer Assisted Learning (JCAL) on "Learning analytics in massively multi-user virtual environments and courses", Wiley has been kind enough to provide an access code that will permit free access to the content of the journal for the remainder of the year—but only for the first 300 users.
The code is: JCALLAK16
If you DO NOT have access to JCAL via your institution’s library, we strongly encourage you to make use of this code, as Wiley will be monitoring its uptake to facilitate future decision-making on whether to make this special issue, along with other selected content, permanently free and open access.
To use the access code, please follow these steps:
1. You will need to register for an account on the Wiley website at http://www.onlinelibrary.wiley.com/user-registration
if you have not already done so.
2. Log in to Wiley Online Library (http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com
) with your email and password.
3. Once you have logged in, go to the trial access page within your profile at http://www.onlinelibrary.wiley.com/myprofile/trials
. Enter the access code in the "Trial Access Code" dialog box, then click "Submit Code."
4. You should now have access to *all* JCAL content (not just the special issue) until the end of 2016. Enjoy!
The contents of the special issue are included below again, for your reference.
