It seems only natural to introduce a tentative new concept to describe these current phenomena in education, namely the Internet of Education, which can arguably be described in its core concept as being equal as the Internet of Things only mapped to education. Similarly to the concept of the Internet of Things which tries to produce pervasive presence around us via a variety of things or objects (tags, sensors, actuators, mobile phones, etc.), which through unique addressing schemes, are able to interact with each other and cooperate with their neighbours to reach common goals. It seems that education is also gaining such a shape. Therefore the Internet of Education could be understood as a layer within the Internet of Things, which would unify all ICT based ventures and novelties surrounding the field of publishing and education as described in the emerging trends of the very sucessful Workshop on Co-creation of Emerging Trends in Academia. We hope that with the ever growing amounts of information within academia, academic video journals, video articles, video systems and pedagogical edu systems a s necessary nuclei component of these, will met fertile grounds for adoption and in time become a viable means, new publishing paradigm and a pillar of the Internet of Education.
