MTDL 2010 : The Second ACM International Workshop on Multimedia Technologies for Distance Leaning
Call For Papers
The Second ACM International Workshop on
Multimedia Technologies for Distance Leaning (MTDL 2010)
Firenze, Italy, October 29, 2010
In conjunction with ACM Multimedia 2010
Multimedia technologies and networking infrastructure have changed human social behavior. One typical example is education. The impact of distance learning to traditional universities in particular allows educational professionals to rethink about how to efficiently and effectively using multimedia technologies to improve instruction, as well as to encourage students to learn. Although multimedia technologies have already been used widely in e-learning, various considerations should be carefully addressed from both pedagogical and technological perspectives, to ensure the successful incorporation of these technologies in e-learning.
This ACM workshop aims to discuss problems, current studies, and solutions in how to use multimedia and communication technologies to improve e-learning. Especially, presentations should address the difference between using and without using multimedia technologies in education. Practical solutions are encouraged, although pedagogical theories may be used to support the solutions.
The conference proceedings will be published by ACM. Topics of interests include but are not limited to the following:
· Efficient Authoring Methods for Instruction Creation/Generation
· Management of Multimedia Learning Objects
· Multimedia Edutainment Technologies
· Multimedia Technologies for Collaborative Learning
· Multimedia Technologies for Game-based Learning
· Multimedia Technologies for Mobile/Situated Learning
· Multimodal Interactions for e-Learning
· Pedagogical Issues of using Multimedia Technologies in e-Learning
· Real-time Delivery of Multimedia Instructions
· Retrieval of Multimedia Learning Objects
· Server and System Architecture for Multimedia Instructions
· Usability Study of Multimedia Learning Objects
Each paper for submission should be formatted using the ACM Proceedings templates. It should be written in 9 points and must not be longer than 10 pages in length, including references and figures. Authors may submit their papers in PDF format via the ACM Multimedia 2010 paper submission system. Note that the review process is double-blind, i.e., all submissions must contain no information identifying the authors or their organizations.
