Call For Papers

Call for Papers on ICCMIT 2015:

“Open Educational Resources; Theory and Applications”

Objective and Motivation
The advancing information technologies and the internet are influencing the way education is introduced, inserted in and integrated within various academic institutions. Usage of Open Source Software is a key issue in presenting OER’s to everyone. Students’ patterns should be studied studied. Continuous efforts have to be done to narrow the digital divide and the educational level divide.

The conference session titled “Open Educational Resources; Theory and Applications” welcomes theoretical and/or application papers from all areas of research related to OER (e.g. MOOCs, education, e-learning, authoring tools, student reachability, Business intelligence techniques applied to student’s behavior and student behavior analysis, etc.) in regard to the study of information needs and information seeking behavior for each particular sector. Through the human information seeking perspectives the appropriate information systems and services can be developed in order to integrate specific information needs and behaviors into each particular sector.

Scope and Interests
Open Educational Resources is a relatively new research topic. It is the result of integrating information technology, handling digital divide with e-learning. AI techniques; Business Intelligence, data mining, knowledge discovery, etc. play a role in student tracking. This helps evaluation of the student and/or the system and consequently amelioration form the student, parent, teacher and system side. Both the theoretical and application research work in these areas are of great interest. Papers in the different disciplines related to OER are welcomed to be presented to this session they include, but are not limited to:

• OER contexts
• Students Behavior Analysis
• Studies of student’s needs satisfaction
• Collaborative learning in OER Systems
• Cooperative learning in OER Systems
• OER and internet
• Student Modeling through OER’s
• Open Source Software for OER’s
• Literature review of student’s needs studies, recent trends and perspectives
• Information and digital information literacy skills
• Impact of using OER technologies and student behavior studies
• Implemented OER experiences, applications, projects and developed systems

Paper Submission Important Dates
All instructions and templates for submission can be found in the ICCMIT 2015 web site: Please, contact the special session organizer if you are planning to submit any paper.
