TCC offers three categories of sessions: Papers, General sessions, and Student sessions.

A paper is a formal written presentation typical of those published in academic journals. Additionally, authors will be scheduled for an online session. For additional details and to download a template, see Papers.

Accepted papers will be published online in the TCC Online Conference Refereed Proceedings. Selected papers will be considered for publication in the International Journal of Educational Media and Technology (IJEMT), published in collaboration with the Japan Association for Educational Media Studies (JAEMS) and the Korean Association for Educational Information and Media (KAEIM).

General Sessions
A general session is an open forum, where ideas and perspectives are presented and discussed based on a proposal description. We encourage the use of any creative format since the online environment is emerging, and we expect to see new forms of communication styles and methods. For more info, see General sessions.

Student Sessions
A student session may be either a paper or a general session that is prepared and presented by a student, often under the guidance of a mentor or thesis adviser. Student presentations are scheduled later in the day. Registration fees are waived for student presenters. For more info, see Student sessions.

Prepare your proposal according to the requirements given for a particular presentation category. Additionally, you will need to provide your contact information.

Papers and proposals for general sessions must be submitted and received online. To submit your proposal:

Additionally, email your paper to Curtis Ho <> and to copy to Bert Kimura <>.

Proposal Review
All submitted papers and general session proposals will be peer-reviewed and an acceptance determination made. You will be notified by email as soon as this determination is made.

If a paper is determined to be unacceptable for publication, the reviewers may suggest presenting a general session in lieu of publication in the conference proceedings. In this case, the conference coordinators will contact you to make arrangements.

Accepted titles and descriptions will be posted, as submitted, on the conference homepage.

Descriptions may be edited and reformatted to conform to the conference website design. You may be notified to review the posted material to ensure that the content is accurate and nothing has been omitted.

The primary author or proposal submitter will serve as the main contact between the chairs of the peer review process. All communications will be conducted by email. Please make certain that all email addresses are correctly written.

Conference Registration
All presenters must register for the conference and pay the registration fee. Student presentations are highly encouraged and thus, fees will be waived for student presenters enrolled full-time in accredited institutions while completing graduate or undergraduate degrees.
