AbstractThe paper presents innovative trustworthy services to support secure e-assessment in web-based collaborative learning grids. Although e-Learning has been widely adopted, there exist still drawbacks which limit their potential. Among these limitations, we investigate information security requirements in on-line assessment learning activities, (e-assessment). In previous research, we proposed a trustworthiness model to support secure e-assessment requirements for e-Learning. In this paper, we present effective applications of our approach by integrating flexible and interoperable Web based secure e-learning services based on our trustworthiness model into e-assessment activities in on-line collaborative learning courses. Moreover, we leverage Grid technology to meet further demanding requirements of collaborative learning applications in terms of computation performance and management of large data sets, in order for the trustworthy collaborative learning services to be continuously adapted, adjusted, and personalised to each specific target learning group. Evaluation in a real context is provided while implications of this study are eventually remarked and discussed.

Integrating e-Learning and Classroom Learning; Four Years of Asynchronous Learning to Improve Academic CompetencesBart Rienties; Maarten Van Wesel; Wim Gijselaers (International Institute of Informatics and Cybernetics, 2008-06-01)In an ever-changing world, competencies to process information efficiently are essential. However, several researchers indicate that graduates have limited abilities to solve complex problems in reality. In this paper, a possible solution to increase competences in effective searching, analysing and comparing information is provided. In a blended-learning environment, students had to share information before coming to class. The results of an analysis of four consecutive years of computersupported learning in a master-course indicate that students are willing to share information when conditions are favourable. In addition, a specific redesign of the task, control and social dimension let to increased knowledge sharing. Future research is necessary to assess whether this also has increased performance.
M-Learning: A New Paradigm of Learning Mathematics in MalaysiaSaipunidzam Mahamad; Mohammad Noor Ibrahim; Shakirah Mohd Taib (Academy & Industry Research Collaboration Center (AIRCC), 2010-09-01)M-Learning is a new learning paradigm of the new social structure with mobile and wireless technologies.Smart school is one of the four flagship applications for Multimedia Super Corridor (MSC) underMalaysian government initiative to improve education standard in the country. With the advances ofmobile devices technologies, mobile learning could help the government in realizing the initiative. Thispaper discusses the prospect of implementing mobile learning for primary school students. It indicatessignificant and challenges and analysis of user perceptions on potential mobile applications through asurvey done in primary school context. The authors propose the m-Learning for mathematics by allowingthe extension of technology in the traditional classroom in term of learning and teaching
E-learning Materials Development: Applying and Implementing Software Reuse Principles and Granularity Levels in the SmallNabil Arman (SERSC, 2010-06-01)E-learning materials development is typically acknowledged as an expensive, complicated, and lengthy process, often producing materials that are of low quality and difficult to adaptand maintain. It has always been a challenge to identify proper e-learning materials that can be reused at a reasonable cost and effort. In this paper, software engineering reuse principlesare applied to e-learning materials development process. These principles are then applied and implemented in a prototype that is integrated with an open-source course management systems. The reuse of existing e-learning materials is beneficial in improving developers of elearning materials productivity. E-learning material reuse is performed, in this research, based on construct’s granularity rather than on unified constructs of one size.
