ITNG 2011 : Web Technologies and Services for Collaborative E-learning
Call For Papers
As keyboards replace chalkboards, the Web’s impact on traditional educational theories and practices becomes increasingly apparent; the Web has transformed and expanded the boundaries of conventional education. Web-based learning environments such as virtual colleges, laboratories, and universities have generated a wealth of new educational strategies and technical innovations worthy of critical attention and discussion. This involves innovative and integrated use of databases, information retrieval, data mining and multi-media technologies using specially designed software and hardware to make the learning environment robust and stable.ITNG 2011 will provide an opportunity for scholars, faculty, researchers, and administrators in all areas of Web-based education to convene with colleagues to discuss innovative ideas and research results in the new and exciting field of Web-based education. Also cutting edge technology providers who serve to host such virtual learning environments will be able to share and discuss their ideas to improve and innovate their products. We strongly encourage submissions of both a theoretical and practical nature, from both academia and industry. Suggested areas of interest include, but are not limited to:
* PDAs, Wireless & Mobile Learning
* Research in Online Pedagogy
* Web 2.0 Applications and their role in education (Blogs, Google Apps)
* Collaborative E-learning : Social Networking tools - Facebook, Twitter, etc.
* Dot-com Educational Institutions and their Impact on Traditional Universities
* Scientific Web-based Laboratories and Virtual Labs
* Software and Hardware Systems for Web-based Education
* Software testing with Open Source tool for Collaborative learning
* Streaming Multimedia Applications in Web-based Education
* Web services for Collaborative learning
* Testing and Evaluation of Web Services in E-learning
Proceedings will be published by the IEEE Computer Society's Conference Publishing Services. Electronic submission in MS Word (.doc) format is required. Papers must represent high quality and previously unpublished work, not currently under review by another conference, workshop, or journal.
Interested authors should submit a 6-page paper of their original and unpublished work including 5 keywords in the IEEE conference proceedings format, slightly modified for ITNG. You can use this template: IEEEPaperTemplateModifiedForITNG.doc. Please submit your paper via the Web-based system at: https://www.softconf.com/b/itng2011/.
Papers will be evaluated for originality, significance, clarity, and soundness. Per ITNG policy, except for invited papers, all papers will be reviewed by at least two independent reviewers. Accepted papers will be included in the conference proceedings published by the IEEE Computer Society and available on the IEEE digital library.
