Track Description

Over the last decade, traditional forms of learning where teachers were responsible for the selection and production of teaching materials, and dissemination and evaluation of knowledge has been supplemented by concepts of collaborative and ubiquitous learning in which students actively participate in knowledge repository creation. Additionally, increasing importance of continuing education and internationalization of education require new methods in course and curricula development and study process organization. Information systems that support advanced curricula development methods and various types of collaboration and communication among users thus enabling them to achieve educational goals in terms of facilitated knowledge acquisition and creation of personalized learning environments are an indispensable concern of every modern organization.

This track aims to bring together researchers, professionals, and practitioners dealing with various aspects of the design, implementation, and evaluation of educational approaches, methods, artifacts, learning objects, and educational e- and m-activities to creatively seek for sustainable, viable, effective, and efficient educational systems in ISD and other areas. The track invites submissions on theoretical foundations and examples of good practice related to the design, implementation, evaluation, adoption, and use of information systems in formal and informal educational contexts in ISD and other areas.
