E-Education Applications: Human Factors and Innovative Approaches
Ghaoui, Claude, Ed.
Information Science Publishing
"E-Education Applications: Human Factors and Innovative Approaches" enforces the need to take multi-disciplinary and/or inter-disciplinary approaches, when solutions for e-education (or online-, e-learning) are introduced. By focusing on the issues that have impact on the usability of e-learning, the book specifically fills-in a gap in this area, which is particularly invaluable to practitioners. The book is aimed at researchers and practitioners from academia, industry, and government, for an in-depth coverage of a broad range of issues, ideas and practical experiences on this subject. It aims to raise more awareness in this important subject, promote good practice, and share and evaluate experiences (advantages, disadvantages, problems faced and lessons learned). Chapters of this book include: (1) Engineering of a Virtual Community Platform (Kerstin Rose, Leon Urbas, Alexander Kunzer, Martin Kindsmuller, and Sandro Leuchter); (2) Innovative Approach to Teaching Database Design through WWW (Joanna Jedrzejowicz); (3) A Model-Driven Approach for Synchronous Dynamic Collaborative E-Learning (Veronique Baudin, Khalil Drira, Thierry Villemur, and Said Tazi); (4) Smart ProFlexLearn (Claude Ghaoui and W. Janvier); (5) An Expert-Based Evaluation Concerning Human Factors in ODL Programs (Athanasis Karoulis, Ioannis Tarnanas, and Andreas Pombortsis); (6) Integrated E-Learning System and Its Practice (Toshio Okamoto and Mizue Kayama); (7) SEGODON (Takashi Yoshino and Jun Munemori); (8) Creative E-Transitions (Lynne Hunt); (9) Distributed Construction through Participatory Design (Panayiotis Zaphiris, Giorgos Zacharia, and Meenakshi Rajasekaran); (10) Fast Track (Philip Duggan, Claude Ghaoui, and Mike Simco); (11) E-Learning as a Catalyst for Educational Innovation (Petek Askar and Ugur Halici); (12) Employing Intelligent and Adaptive Methods for Online Learning (Bernard Garrett and George Roberts); (13) Toward Predictive Models for E-Learning (Maria Rentroia-Bonito and Joaquim Pires Jorge); (14) Supporting Informal Interaction in Online Courses (Juan Contreras-Castillo, Jesus Favela, and Carmen Perez-Fragoso); (15) The Orientation and Disorientation of E-Learners (Bernard Garrett and Richard Francis); (16) Ensuring Usability in International Web-Based E-Learning Systems (Andy Smith); (17) Knowledge Spaces (Wolfgang Strauss, Monika Fleischmann, Jochen Denzinger, Michael Wolf, and Yinlin Li); (18) Development and Evaluation of a New HTML Browser Method of Presenting Reading Material for Students with Low Vision (Kazuhito Ujima and Koichi Oda); (19) A Sign Language Teaching System Using Sign Language Recognition and Generation Methods (Hirohiko Sagawa and Masaru Takeuchi); and (20) Precursors to Web-Based Methodologies (Robert Owen and Bosede Aworuwa).
