From the JOLT Editors...

December 15, 2008

With this issue JOLT closes its fourth volume. Each year the journal grows in the number of manuscripts submitted, the number published, and the number of vistors to the site. Volume IV of JOLT contains over 600 pages, representing 60 published papers by authors from not only the USA, but also Canada, the UK, and Australia.

This volume also includes the first Special Issue of JOLT, an issue that featured nine papers concerned with the next generation of learning management systems.

Although the vast majority of our readers are in the USA, JOLT reaches a readership that literally spans the globe. In the past year nearly 50,000 vistors from 166 countries, representing 66 languages, have read articles in JOLT.

We thank you for your support and hope you will help us spread the word that JOLT is fast becoming recognized as a preminent online journal.
