Integrating a web3D interface into an e-learning platform
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 ...
Sticky policies for mobile devices
Mobile devices consume significant amounts of information, from different sources. Thus they often deal also with sensitive or confidential data, in places or situations that could be not appropriate, or not compliant with ...
Visualizing geographic learning objects through a mobile learning application
(Knowledge Systems Institute, 2013)
In this paper we explore how topics from two different fields of computer science, such as Geographic Information Systems and E-learning Systems, can contribute to the Mobile Learning field. In particular, starting from a ...
Extreme Apprenticeship Meets Playful Design at Operating Systems Labs: A Case Study
The extreme apprenticeship instructional methodology, recently born in Scandinavia, serves to organise education in formal contexts, such as university courses. The fundamental idea is that a new task is learned by apprentices ...
Developing a web 3.0 e-learning portal with X3D technologies
The paper describes our experience in the development of the DIEL learning management system, and especially its 3D interface, which has been developed using X3D. DIEL allows to structure learning activities along a virtual ...
Bridging the Gap between PLE and LMS
(IEEE Press, 2011)
Learning Management Systems (LMS) represent today's preferred technology for institutional e-learning. Unfortunately, they show poor adaptability to each user's needs, and learners may suffer from the walled garden effect. ...
A precise style for business process modelling: Results from two controlled experiments
We present a precise style for the modelling of business processes based on the UML activity diagrams and two controlled experiments to compare this style with a lighter variant. The comparison has been performed with ...
Lean Software Development in Action
Integrating multidimensional means in e-learning
In the paper, we present DIEL, an application that makes a mixed use of a number of multimedia sources to enrich a well-known elearning platform, Moodle. DIEL exploits the social translucence concept in order to create a ...
Precise vs. ultra-light activity diagrams - An experimental assessment in the context of business process modelling
UML activity diagrams are a commonly used notation for modelling business processes in the field of both workflow automation and requirements engineering. In this paper, we present a novel precise style for this notation. ...
