Students' performance and satisfaction with Web vs. paper-based practice quizzes and lecture notes
The use of computers to deliver course-related materials is rapidly expanding in most universities. Yet the effects of computer vs. printed delivery modes on students' performance and motivation are not yet fully known. We compared the impacts of Web vs. paper to deliver practice quizzes that require information search in lecture notes. Hundred and twenty two undergraduate students used either a web site or printed documents to answer 18 mathematics questions during a tutored session. A revised

Remote engineering implies a new strategy of assessment?
When we spoken about remote engineering as a new methodology used in the cyberspace with the final goal of the teaching/learning improvement and cost sharing, we are obliged to approach all of the process sides. Assessment is one of these sides and there is considered the most powerful tool for illustration, in the qualitative and quantitative ways, the learners responds at educational objectives offered by the remote engineering learning environment. In the present paper the authors have the in

Investigating mental representations in children interacting with small mobile robots
This research aimed at investigating the acquisition of comprehension of a robotic system in school age children by using two different methods: concept maps and interviews. We demonstrated that concept maps are an important instrument of verification of knowledge, offering the possibility to graphically re-examine the expressed knowledge, and training children to decompose a problem (analysis) and re-compose it in a more structured way (synthesis). The interviews confirmed the subjects’ abilit

Investigating the efficacy of the use of ICT for slow learners : Case studies in Singapore Primary S
This exploratory project investigates the implications and changes effected through the introduction of IBM’s KidSmart programme into the Learning Support Programme (LSP) in 6 Singapore primary schools. It focuses on the impact of ICT on teaching and learners methodologies embraced by teachers working with slow learners (or learners at risk). The principal aim of this project is to identify workable teaching models or processes that can maximize learning through the use of ICT with slow learner

Advantages and disadvantages of e-learning at the technical university
The term Electronic Learning or e-Learning is being used in Russia rather rarely. It integrates a number of terminological notions in the sphere of application of modern information and communication technologies in education such as multimedia, education on the base of web-technologies, etc. Teachers and learners must realize that new opportunities are offered by modern on-line communication. A person with basic Internet and Web skills is open to a new world of knowledge, from free Web surfing

Towards a classification of Narrative Learning Environments
In this paper, we highlight why narrative can support learning, drawing from the literature. Then we describe what are NLEs, mentioning a few examples. We also discuss NLEs’ characterizing aspects - user role, technological means and educational approach - stressing their importance in determining the learning afforded by an environment. We conclude by pointing out what issues need to be tackled to advance the field.,Research report

A Grid Services Implementation for a Virtual Research Environment
In the past, virtual learning and research environments have typically been implemented as monolithic systems. Current research focuses on creating such environments from selected Grid and Web services. In this paper we describe the Virtual Orthopaedic European University, which was created to support Higher Surgical Trainees to provide evidence for their learning contracts by carrying out experiments and publishing the results. We use this environment as a case study for the re-implementation

Virtual Reality for Learning: Sharing Experiences rather than Resources
Virtual Reality is becoming a major candidate for embodying immersive learning environments. Whereas in the two preceding decades learning has been conceptualized as situations where students are guided rather than elicited to undertake actions, it is now the right time to explore the other side or the continuum.
