With the adoption of e-learning in mainstream education, use of emerging and 
innovative instructional technologies is gaining importance in academia. This is 
particularly true for engineering education where the learning process lends 
itself to variety of multi-sensory approaches.
This special issue aims to focus on the emerging and innovative design, 
development and implementation of instructional technologies in engineering 
education. With the advent of Web 2.0 and 3.0 technologies and changing 
educational paradigms due to changing needs of the society, both 
technological advancements and instructional pedagogies have influenced the 
way instruction takes place. New ways of learning has resulted as a 
giving rise to mobile learning technologies, collaborative learning technologies, 
social networking technologies, to name a few.
This special issue is intended to collate realisable ideas, inspirations, as well as 
outreach approaches which have been implemented and tested in engineering 
education. Examples of topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
* Technological advancements
* Theories and paradigms for use of instructional technologies
* Web 2.0 and Web 3.0 technologies for instruction
* Non-traditional instructional technologies
* Collaborative and social technologies
* Synchronous and asynchronous technologies
* Standardization and reusability issues
* Specific cases of innovative use of instructional technologies
* Evaluation of instructional technologies
