M. David Merrill is retired Professor Emeritus, Utah State University. Since retiring, he has worked as a visiting Research professor at Florida State University and Research Consultant and Professor in Residence at Brigham Young University-Hawaii. He led the team which developed the authoring system for TICCIT (Time-shared Interactive Computer Controlled Information Television). Dr. Merrill further developed component display theory in association with the TICCIT system and refined that theory in the form of both elaboration theory and instructional transaction theory. Jan Elen is Professor in the Department of Educational Sciences of the Katholieke University of Leuven. His research is oriented towards the design and use of computer-supported learning environments in educational settings. He is the coordinator of the newly- founded School of Education of the Association at Katholieke University of Leuven. MJ Bishop is Associate Professor in the College of Education at Lehigh University.

Her goals are to devise more effective ways to design instructional technologies that enhance learning.


"The Handbook aims to provide the most comprehensive, definitive, and accurate single-volume overview available in the field of educational communication and technology. ... this book is not only a sign of the field's development, but also a reflection on the dynamic state of mainstream educational research. Because of that, it is a mandatory read and reference for all educationalists and researchers of education." (Tamara Savelyeva, Technology Knowledge and Learning, Vol. 20, 2015)"The volume updates the findings from the third edition, published in 2008, and will stand for several years as a summary of research in the field of educational technology or educational communications technology (ECT). ... The volume serves a valuable purpose of scholars seeking specific research findings in their areas of interest. ... My kudos to the editors and contributors of this outstanding volume!" (Brent G. Wilson, Educational Technology, Vol. 54 (6), November-December, 2014)
