After quite a lot of work my first ever special issue of an academic journal is out! --> http://scholarworks.umb.edu/ciee/

This is the evolution (or natural extension) of the older Great Big MOOC Book project from back in 2011. I hope you enjoy :)  If you have research articles you'd like to submit please do!  We have 1 regular issue of the journal each year (usually comes out spring or summer).

Exploitation of educated workers, or writing on the wall?

Promotion: the past few years i've been looking to create an open access, Creative Commons, book on MOOCs. I've called it The Great Big MOOC book. There has been marginal interest, but if you are interested in contributing join the google doc.

Happy that this is out!  It's amazing that this took only a year (we started brainstorming about this last May and it's already out! :) ).  I am so used to academic writing taking forever to get out :)
