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
Engaging the Community in Multidisciplinary TEL Research: A Case-Study from Networking in Europe
The STELLAR Network of Excellence was launched in February 2009 with the explicit intention of Sustaining Large Scale Multi-Disciplinary Research in Technology Enhanced Learning. So as to support this aim, the network has defined a number of different activity tracks, aimed at building capacity amongst senior-level researchers/decision makers, mid-level researchers and junior researchers/PhD students as well with a separate track dedicated to building community level capacity.

Theory-based support for mobile language learning: noticing and recording
This paper considers the issue of 'noticing' in second language acquisition, and argues for the potential of handheld devices to: (i) support language learners in noticing and recording noticed features 'on the spot', to help them develop their second language system; (ii) help language teachers better understand the specific difficulties of individuals or those from a particular language background; and (iii) facilitate data collection by applied linguistics researchers, which can be fed back i
A Virtual Environment for Distance Education and Training
The world-wide networks and the information superhighways allowing rapid transmission of digital multimedia information to any user in any time, offer a ground for a new educational reform that would prepare the citizens to live in the Information Society.

The most impo
A Model for Strengthening the Software Engineering Research

Towards a Model of the Digital University:
A Generalized Net Model for Producing
In a series of research papers, the authors have studied some of the most important models of contemporary universities, such as: the research university, the entrepreneurial university and the digital university and construct their Generalized Net (GN) models. This paper is based on the casestudies of Sofia University, the Technical University of Munich and the University of Edinburgh. The main focus is to put the analysis of the processes of the functioning of a university which effectively in
