    Di Cerbo, F; Dodero, G; Forcheri, P; Gianuzzi, V; Ierardi, MG (Springer, 2009)
    The paper illustrates a methodology for the design of courses, which can be offered as traditional classroom-based, hybrid or distance courses. It is based on collaborative learning environment realized by means of Web 2.0 ...
  • Image schemas in computational conceptual blending 

    Hedblom MM; Kutz O; Neuhaus F (ELSEVIER SCIENCE BV, 2016)
    In cognitive science, image schemas are identified as fundamental patterns of cognition. They are schematic prelinguistic conceptualisations of events and serve as conceptual building blocks for concepts. This paper proposes ...
  • Index Structures for Fuzzy Object-Oriented Database Systems 

    Helmer, S (Idea Group, 2005)
    This chapter gives an overview of indexing techniques suitable for fuzzy object-oriented databases (FOODBSs). First, typical query patterns used in FOODBSs are identified, namely, single-valued, set-valued, navigational, ...

  • Integrating a web3D interface into an e-learning platform 

    Dodero, G; Papaleo, L; Di Cerbo, F (ACM, 2010)
    In the paper, we present an application of Web3D technologies, X3D with X3DOM and HTML5, to enhance our e-learning platform DIEL. DIEL exploits the social translucence concept in order to create a virtual and dynamic ...
  • Integrating knowledge-based configuration systems by sharing functional architectures 

    Felfernig A; Friedrich G; Jannach D; Zanker M (Springer, 2000)
    Configuration problems are a thriving application area for declarative knowledge representation that experiences a constant increase in size and complexity of knowledge bases. However, today’s configurators are designed ...
  • Integrating multidimensional means in e-learning
