CNIE members enjoy many services. All CNIE members are informed regularly through the use of various information vehicles:

Publications

CNIE publishes two major periodicals: Journal of Distance Education and Canadian Journal of Learning and Technology.

The Journal of Distance Education is an international publication of the Canadian Network for Innovation in Education (CNIE). Its aims are to promote and encourage Canadian research and scholarly work in distance education and provide a forum for the dissemination of international scholarship. Two issues a year (Spring and Autumn) are published in book form and mailed to subscribers.

The Canadian Journal of Learning and Technology is a peer-reviewed journal that welcomes papers on all aspects of educational technology and learning. Topics may include, but are not limited to: learning theory and technology, cognition and technology, instructional design theory and application, online learning, computer applications in education, simulations and gaming, and other aspects of the use of technology in the learning process. Manuscripts may be submitted either in English or in French.

All CNIE memberships include a subscription to Journal of Distance Education and to the Canadian Journal of Learning and Technology.
