E-Learning is a vast and complex research topic that poses many challenges in every aspect: educational and pedagogical strategies and techniques and the tools for achieving them; usability, accessibility and user interface design; knowledge sharing and collaborative environments; technologies, architectures, and protocols; user activity monitoring, assessment and evaluation; experiences, case studies and more. This book's authors come from all over the world; their ideas, studies, findings and experiences are a valuable contribution to enriching our knowledge in the field of eLearning. The book is divided into three sections. The first covers architectures and environments for eLearning, while the second part presents research on user interaction and technologies for building usable eLearning environments, which are the basis for realizing educational and pedagogical aims, and the final last part illustrates applications, laboratories, and experiences. Contents include: (1) E-learning for the New Generations, a Web 2.0 Approach (Hicham Hage and Esma Aimeur); (2) Developing and Implementing a Multi-Agent System for Collaborative E-learning (Hani Mahdi and Sally S. Attia); (3) Distributed E-learning Based on SOA (Khosro Bahrami, Behzad Daemi and Mehrnoush Abedi); (4) Regionally Distributed Architecture for Dynamic e-Learning Environment (RDADeLE) (Saleh AlZahrani, Aladdin Ayesh and Hussein Zedan); (5) Dynamic Analysis of Activity of E-learning System Users (R. Mosdorf, J. Kilon and B. Ignatowska); (6) An Approach in Personalisation and Privacy in E-Learning Systems (Itana Stiubiener, Wilson Vicente Ruggiero and Marta Rosatelli); (7) Affective Computing in E-learning (Hongfei Lin, Fengming Pan, Yuxuan Wang, Shaohua Lv and Shichang Sun); (8) Empathic Multiple Tutoring Agents for Multiple Learner Interface (Hua Wang and Mitsuru Ishizuka); (9) Avatar Augmented Annotation Interface for e-Learning (Won-Sung Sohn and Jae-Kyung Kim); (10) Developing Screencasts and Video Screencasts for E-learning (Carlos Turro, Luis Morcillo and Jaime Busquets); (11) Distance Learning: New Opportunities for the Blind (Marina Buzzi and Barbara Leporini); (12) Conception of Lesson Notes as Cartoon for Foreign Language Learning (Laure France); (13) Virtual Collaborative Learning Environments with the Telepresence Platform Supported by the Teaching for Understanding Pedagogical Framework: Experiences in Higher Educational Process in Colombia (Helmuth Trefftz, Juliana Restrepo, Pedro Esteban, Angela Maria Jimenez and Faber Danilo Giraldo); (14) E-Learning Tool for Digital Design and Embedded System Training (Giuliano Donzellini and Domenico Ponta); (15) Remote Control of a Multi-robot Infrastructure for E-Learning Training Sessions (Theodor Borangiu, Florin Daniel Anton and Silvia Anton); (16) Development Sensor Experimental Platform Based on the Graphical Monitoring and Control System (Wen-Jye Shyr); (17) Virtual and Remote Laboratories for E-Learning Using EDA Tools (Wael El-Medany); and (18) Development of A Distance Microprocessor-based Platform using Graphical Interface via the Internet (Hsiung Cheng Lin).
