This special theme issue is guest edited by Alan Tait, Open University, UK and

Papers are invited that address the broad area of student or learner support.
Papers that address the theme of "Change" will be especially welcome,
whether from the perspective of technologies, competition, student characteristics,
management, financial issues, or others. Papers that examine subsets of activities
that complement the production of learning materials or courseware in open and
distance learning and contemporary web supported teaching challenges such a
dichotomy will also be welcomed. Authors are asked to ensure that readers will
have a clear picture of the learner support system under discussion. Description,
however, should serve analysis.

follow IRRODLs house style available online at: http://www.irrodl.org/contrib.html.
