PURPOSE AND DESCRIPTION
Shifting to knowledge based society, high level educational environments are required with which it is possible to continue to learn for anybody, anytime, and anywhere. The area of e-Learning realizes such kind of educational environments because distributed learners can learn collaboratively with multimedia contents anytime and anywhere by employing collaborative e-Learning technologies.
Collaborative e-learning technologies include a variety of approaches that involve joint intellectual effort by learners and instructors. In such learning contexts, collaborative learning happens when groups of learning seekers work together to search for understanding or meaning or build a new competency, and/or learning providers and pedagogues deliver joint solutions to create a learning product.
This workshop solicits researches for systems and concepts which offer high quality education with thinking of learners' convenience, such as collaborative learning systems, sharing and exchanging systems, monitoring/mentoring systems, learning design and pedagogy in technology-enhanced learning. We invite original contributions from researchers and practitioners in academia, government and industry, in order to go forward toward new collaborative information technology systems for e-Learning.
Topics of Interest include (but not limited to):
• Learning Theories and Approaches for e-Learning
• e-Learning Pedagogical Strategies and Models
• Pedagogy in Technology-enhanced Learning
• Collaborative Learning Systems
• Monitoring/Mentoring Systems
• Knowledge Management/Sharing
• Learning Design Technology
• Organizational Collaboration
• Learning Management Systems (LMS)
• Computer-Mediated Communication (CMC) Tools
• Social Support Software for e-Learning
• e-Moderating, e-Tutoring, e-Facilitating
• Online Assessment and Impact Studies
• Ethical Issues in e-learning
• Virtual classrooms
• Smart collaborative learning environments
• Media for group works
• Network learning games
• Learning Web services
• Best practices to promote cooperative learning
