CeLS 2012 - Special Session on Collaborative eLearning Systems (CeLS)
The Special Session on Collaborative eLearning Systems (CeLS), taking place in conjunction with the 14th International Conference on Enterprise Information Systems - ICEIS 2012 aims to bring together researchers and practitioners working in innovative pedagogical strategies adapted to group-based eLearning. eLearning has become an important business process for corporations, as well as for universities. Despite all the recent activity, models for how people teach and learn online are still immature. Often eLearning systems fail due to the lack of attention and the lack of commitment of the users to maximise the results of the learning process through the software system.
Learning Communities have become a recognised paradigm for solving this problem but some attributes are still overlooked. In particular, it is important to realise that in a community there is a measure of commitment to a set of shared values, norms, and meanings and a shared history and identification within a particular culture. Yet, personalisation is required in each individual learning process.
CeLS encourages authors to submit papers describing original work based on diverse perspectives related to collaborative eLearning, including methods, techniques, recent advances, applications and tools electronically via the event’s web-based submission system. Important dates regarding paper submissions and instructions on their preparation may be found on the event website. All accepted papers (full, short and posters) will be published in a special section of the conference proceedings book - under an ISBN reference and on CD-ROM support - and submitted for indexation by Thomson Reuters Conference Proceedings Citation Index (ISI), INSPEC, DBLP and EI (Elsevier Index). All papers presented at the conference venue will be available at the SciTePress Digital Library, a member of CrossRef.
Extended versions of accepted papers presented at the Workshop will appear in as a Springer book chapter. A selection of high quality papers will be proposed to be submitted as an extended version for a special issue of an international journal to be specified later. Selected papers will be considered for publication in the British Journal of Educational Technology and other selection of high quality papers will be proposed to be submitted as an extended version for a special issue of the international Journal of Universal Computer Science J.UCS.
Information on the possibility to register for the event and registration fees will published on the event website in the near future.
