1st International Workshop on E-Learning systems: research and tools,
from theory to practice.

September 6th, 2007, Regensburg, Germany

* In conjunction with DEXA 2007 Conference *

Computer-based communication is one of the most fundamental changes
in communication technology in the last 150 years. The proliferation
of the personal computer combined with the Internet has caused far-
reaching changes in society. Electronic communications and digital
networks are transforming the way we work and the way we learn.
However, since communication is at the heart of all forms of
educational interaction, it is likely that its impact on education
systems and individual teachers and learners will grow even faster in
the future. In this context, e-learning has enlarged its scope,
including the use of web-based teaching materials and hypermedia in
general, multimedia CD-ROMs or web sites, discussion boards,
collaborative software, e-mail, blogs, wikis, computer aided
assessment, educational animation, simulations, games, learning
management software, electronic voting systems and more, with
possibly a combination of different methods being used. The workshop
will accept submissions on all aspects of e-Learning with a special
emphasis on those directly connected with the use of technology in
supporting computer science teaching and learning. Papers on the
practice of teaching computer science and computer science education
research are also welcome.

The workshop topics of interest include (but are not limited to):
General & Cross-Domain
Health Care
Higher Education
Informal Learning (Communities, Homes)
Libraries and Museums
Professional Associations & Non-Profits
Content Development
Implementation Examples and Issues
Instructional Design
Policy Issues
Social and Cultural Issues
Standards and Interoperability
Tools and Systems
Intellectual Property and DRM Issues

* Conference background and goals
Big issues in Mobile Learning: An International Perspective
In June 2006, under the auspice of the Kaleidoscope Network of Excellence Mobile Learning Initiative, European researchers convened for the Big Issues in Mobile Learning Workshop. The Workshop aimed to provide a forum for reflecting on the issues that have triggered the staggering growth in mobile learning and for identifying what are the big challenges facing mobile learning.
An outcome of the workshop is the Big Issues in Mobile Learning Report which indicates that mobile learning is concerned with “a society on the move”. It is learning across contexts rather than just learning with portable devices. The report points to the need to move away from ‘porting’ existing activities into mobile devices, to design with evaluation in mind, to consider the complexity of the dialectic relationship between learner & technology, to explore new conditions & ways of learning supported by mobile technology, to investigate innovation in a social context and to consider the tensions between mobile technology and learning in schools, among others (Sharples, 2006).
The IADIS Mobile Learning 2007 International Conference seeks to provide a forum for the presentation and discussion of mobile learning research. In particular, but not exclusively, we aim to enrich the Big Issues in Mobile Learning debate with an international perspective and with empirical research that will further contribute to forge understanding of the Big Issues in Mobile Learning.
