O.Pandithurai, M.Geetha, Sumaya Jabeen A, Swathi Priya V C, Swetha M

Show Abstract

Abstract:

There is a rapid growth in technology and advancement of E- learrning systems . E-Learning is a network
enabled transfer of skills that can enable people to learn anytime and anywhere. It is a platform that provides
easy access to the upgradation of knowledge and skills. In this paper we are using cloud computing technologies
and Intelligent video surveillance system in E-learning environment. Intelligent video surveillance system are
widely used nowadays. They monitor the activities of a student in an e-learning environment. The intelligent
surveillance system will learn the events itself by capturing the video and make a decision that whether the
event is usual or unusual. The histogram of optical flow orientation, entropy and magnitude (HOFOME) and
histogram of gradient are combined to preprocess the captured video frames. They classify the event based on
the machine learning approach called Support Vector Machine (SVM).

Deogratius Mathew Lashayo

Show Abstract

Abstract:

Finding an effective model which guiding universities in developing countries on acceptance, use and success of
e-learning systems has been a tricky. This has been contributed largely with inadequate of factors explaining the
existing models. This research study is aimed at comparing and contrasting results of two developed models in
Tanzania and Malaysia respectively. Explored factors and hypotheses existing in two developed models will be
compared and contrasted. The unified model will be deduced which explaining the acceptance, use and success
of this systems. It implies that between these two countries there are considerable number of common factors for
guiding successfully acceptance, use and success of e-learning systems, however Malaysia has been better off in
terms of course contents, design and delivery. The significance of these result is on policy marking and strategy
formulation of educational institutions which are eager to have comprehensive e-learning systems in developing

ASSESSMENT IN PROPRIETARY INSTITUTIONS: HISTORICAL TRENDS, CURRENT PRACTICES AND THE FUTURE

Pamela Wirth

Show Abstract

Abstract:

The for-profit sector has come under intense scrutiny over the last decade as student debts have escalated and degree
attainment rates remain low. Legislative changes have pushed for more oversight and regulation of these colleges at
both the institutional and program levels. Issues related to program quality and student outcomes have caused the
for-profit education industry to take a closer look at its curriculum and student outcomes. Proprietary colleges are
increasingly realizing the value of assessment as both a marketing tool and tracking mechanism to support student
success. This paper will explore the historical impact of institutional assessment in proprietary education, current
practices and future trends.

İsmail Kılıçaslan, Sinan Aydın, Kenan Türkeri, Hüseyin Soydaş

Show Abstract

Abstract:

Information and Communications Technology at all level of education has made positive effects to students’
learning. From day to day, the use of learning technologies in educational environments is increasing rapidly. As
a result of being technology a main part of education, education researcher should focus on the effect of
technology to students’ learning and their personality.
This research study examined the attitudes of Accounting and Tax Application students from a Vocational High
School towards a specific type of technology based learning, that of Online Web-Assisted Learning.
Data were collected to examine differences in attitudes between traditional learning (teacher centered
instruction) and Online Web-Assisted Learning, of differences in attitudes towards Online Web-Assisted
Learning between males and females, the correlation between Internet use and Online Web-Assisted Learning
attitudes, and the items that students find fascinating in Online Web-Assisted Learning.

rich resources of learning experiences can potentially use Web 2.0 to support their collaborative learning
activities. The emergence of Web 2.0 as a collaborative technology brings about effective interaction and
communication virtually among students or with the lecturer. Online learning is one of the collaborative learning
models usually used by adult learners. There are many Web 2.0 tools available such as Facebook, Twitter,

Show Abstract

Abstract:

Assessment is an essential fundamental aspect to be carried out in all the distance learning centers, to identify the
level of learners understanding and thereby the teaching methodologies can be enhanced to attain the desired
outcome. Especially in distance education, learners and teachers contact are minimal, level of learning by the
learners will vary and recent researchers proved that these voids can be filled with e-learning techniques. So, this
research is to identify the challenges in e-distance education and reinforcing those using information and
communication tools and has been experimented for the analytical subjects with four instructors and 45 students
in mechanical engineering under graduate discipline. The three modules of this research are formulation of elearning
concept maps, types of e-assessment methods and solution methodologies for the better online distance
