Welcome to Volume 7, Number 3 of Language Learning & Technology.

We regret to inform you that LLT Editor Mark Warschauer is on leave from the journal following a family tragedy. Irene Thompson has kindly agreed to step in as Editor during Mark's absence. Our thoughts and prayers are with Mark and his wife Keiko.

Margo Glew has done an excellent job guest editing this special issue under the keen guidance of Associate Editor Irene Thompson. We thank and congratulate both on a fine product. Please see the From the Special Issue Editor column for a description of the content of the issue.

In addition to the articles, columns, and reviews related to the special issue topic Distance Learning, we are pleased to include a commentary by Phillip Towndrow which was motivated by LeLoup and Ponterio's On the Net column in our last issue (Vol. 7, Num. 2). We encourage this kind of thoughtful response and welcome submissions of commentaries (see Information for Contributors) as well as articles.

Speaking of submissions, please note the Call for Papers for an upcoming special issue on Technology and Oral Language Development to be guest edited by David Nunan.

We would also like our readers to be aware of the upcoming AILA (International Association of Applied Linguistics) 2005 conference. We encourage you to attend and present. Links to HTML and PDF announcements are provided here:

Lastly, we proudly congratulate Julie Belz, LLT author and later special issue editor, for winning second place in the "Best Article in an Electronic Journal Award, 2002" issued by the American Educational Research Association Communication of Research Special Interest Group for her article, "Social Dimensions of Telecollaborative Foreign Language Study," published in Language Learning & Technology volume 6, number 1.
