TelE-Learning: The Challenge for the Third Millennium

Free sample

Many of the early issues in the field of telE-learning are now not only recognised but are being addressed, through professional and staff development routes, through innovative technological solutions, and through approaches and concepts that are better suited to particular educational contexts. TelE-LEARNING: The Challenge for the Third Millennium provides details of the most recent advances in this area, and covers issues concerned with:
-the position of on-line learning in the development of the information society;
-developments in virtual organisations, virtual institutes and virtual laboratories;
-creation and development of interactive and adaptive context-aware learning environments using intelligent agents and cognitive style match;
-integrating collaborative learning and collective competencies into on-line learning practices;
-creation and development of e-learning portals, and concerns with inter-operability;
-uses of on-line learning environments in diverse subjects, such as environmental education, mathematics and ICT;
-changes with educational organisation and the impact of culture and culturation;
-the role of case studies and models in teacher development of practice;
-educational uses of broadcasting and web-based technology;
-creation and development of assessment and computerised examination systems in on-line learning environments;
-the role of team work, team learning and team teaching in on-line learning environments used for work-based purposes;
-the role of on-line learning environments in parent-child relationships and rehabilitation situations;
-a focus on shifts in female enrolment in computer science courses;
-theories and concepts of telE-learning (including the application of activity theory and situated learning theory to on-line delivery and learning);
-developments in appropriate research methodologies for on-line learning environments.

TelE-LEARNING: The Challenge for the Third Millennium contains the edited proceedings of Stream 3 of the 17th World Computer Congress, which was sponsored by the International Federation for Information Processing (IFIP) and held in Montréal, Québec, Canada in August 2002.

Since the early 1980's, the IFIP WG8.1 conferences have provided a forum for the presentation and exchange of research results and practical experiences in the field of Information System Engineering. The WG8.1 '02 Conference is held in the beautiful Kanazawa area in North western Japan. The ubiquitous Web has revolutionised the way organisations communicate and work internally as well as externally and, consequently, the nature of information systems supporting business activities. Web-based systems have become the state of the art in information systems engineering in a very short time. As companies become more international in their strategies and activities, information systems themselves span the globe, led by the Internet. While the risks from failed systems may be enhanced due to higher expectations and increased complexity, we have the opportunity to learn more about the nature of information systems and to develop new engineering techniques and methods to improve the development of information services in a World Wide Web context. The aim theme of this working conference is "Engineering Information Systems in the Internet Context" and the programme address both technologies and methodologies for building them. x The call for the EISIC Conference was given international audience. The program committee was chosen from very well reputed researchers in the international information systems, web information systems and communication communities. Seventeen papers have been selected for presentation and discussion during the conference.
Towards Intelligent Manufacturing Systems This book contains the selected articles from the third International Conference on lriformation Technology for Balanced Automation Systems in Manufacturing. A rapid evolution in a number of areas leading to Intelligent Manufacturing Systems has been observ@d in recent years. Significant efforts are being spent on this research area, namely in terms of international cooperative projects, like the IMS initiative, the USA NIIIP (National Industrial Information Infrastructure Protocols) project, or the European ESPRIT programme, and a growing number of conferences and workshops. The importance of the Information and Communication Technologies in the manufacturing area is weIl established today. The proper combination of these areas with the socio-organizational issues, supported by intelligent tools, is however, more difficult to achieve, and fully justifies the need for the BASYS conference and the publication of the series of books on Balanced Automation SyStems. The first book of this series focused on the topic of "Architectures and Design Methods", was published in 1995. Mahy of the fundamental aspects of manufacturing, and some preliminary results were presented in this book. Among others, the topics included: Modeling and design of FMS, Enterprise modeling and organization, Decision support systems in manufacturing, Anthropocentric systems, CAE/CAD/CAM integration, Scheduling systems, Extended enterprises, Multi agent system architecture, Balanced flexibility, Intelligent supervision systems, Shop-floor control, and Computer aided process planning.
