The integration of technology in education has provided tremendous opportunity for learners of all ages. In today?s technology-focused society, the traditional classroom setting is being transformed through online learning platforms, collaborative and experimental methods, and digital educational resources that go hand-in-hand with non-digital learning devices. The Handbook of Research on Applied E-Learning in Engineering and Architecture Education reviews the latest research available on the implementation of digital tools and platforms within the framework of technical education, specifically in the subjects of architecture and engineering. Taking a global approach to the topic of online learning environments for technical education at all grade levels, this comprehensive reference work is ideally designed for use by educators, instructional designers, and researchers from around the world. This handbook contains pertinent research on a variety of educational topics including online learning platforms, mobile and blended learning, collaborative learning environments, gaming in education, informal learning, and educational assessment.
This volume contains papers that have been selected after review for oral presentation at ISRM 2015, the Fourth IFToMM International Symposium on Robotics and Mechatronics held in Poitiers, France 23-24 June 2015. These papers provide a vision of the evolution of the disciplines of robotics and mechatronics, including but not limited to: mechanism design; modeling and simulation; kinematics and dynamics of multibody systems; control methods; navigation and motion planning; sensors and actuators; bio-robotics; micro/nano-robotics; complex robotic systems; walking machines, humanoids-parallel kinematic structures: analysis and synthesis; smart devices; new design; application and prototypes. The book can be used by researchers and engineers in the relevant areas of robotics and mechatronics.
The six-volume set LNCS 10404-10409 constitutes the refereed proceedings of the 17th International Conference on Computational Science and Its Applications, ICCSA 2017, held in Trieste, Italy, in July 2017. The 313 full papers and 12 short papers included in the 6-volume proceedings set were carefully reviewed and selected from 1052 submissions. Apart from the general tracks, ICCSA 2017 included 43 international workshops in various areas of computational sciences, ranging from computational science technologies to specific areas of computational sciences, such as computer graphics and virtual reality. Furthermore, this year ICCSA 2017 hosted the XIV International Workshop On Quantum Reactive Scattering. The program also featured 3 keynote speeches and 4 tutorials.
