HETS Chairman's Message
Welcome to the spring issue of the HETS Online Journal,
I am delighted to present the spring issue of the third edition of this publication. This edition of the HETS Online Journal will be included in EBSCO Publishing’s databases, as announced earlier this academic year. EBSCO Publishing caters to the information needs of researchers at every level by providing the content to bring the latest and best information to researchers.
The HETS journal has been characterized because it addresses relevant topics impacting technology and Hispanic Students; this issue is not an exception. This is peer-reviewed journal which is available not only online, but also it can be downloaded and printed if that’s your preference. Our readership includes researchers, scholars, students and organizations who are interested in technologies, higher education and the Hispanic population. The journal also highlights the use of technology to improve pedagogy. It is only through publications such as the HETS Online Journal that we can focus a wide spotlight on the good work that is being done by our colleagues.
It is my sincere hope that you share the link to our journal with your colleagues. Should you have an innovative technique or would like share your knowledge and experience in technologies impacting higher education, please consider submitting an article for the fourth volume, Fall Edition on or before September 18, 2013.

The field of online education is reaching new horizons. More and more universities and other educational institutions are adopting online education or integrating technology in their processes.
That is why it is imperative to share what has worked and what has not in technology and education so that the learning curve is shorter for those new to the field.
Some of the most relevant topics covered in this issue of our Journal are the integration of information systems in education, best practices in implementing an online learning strategy in higher learning institutions, among others.
I want to reiterate my deepest admiration for those who are daring to discover new ways of bringing educational opportunities to those who did not have access to high quality education in the past.
HETS is confident that the new global exposure through EBSCO databases will provide to the journal would be an excellent opportunity to share our knowledge focused on Hispanic and the integration of new technologies in Education. In addition, we are certain that our articles will be an asset to researchers using their research database system.
