Book Description

The International Journal of Distance Education Technologies (IJDET) is a forum for researchers and practitioners to disseminate practical solutions to the automation of open and distance learning. Targeted to academic researchers and engineers who work with distance learning programs and software systems, as well as general users of distance education technologies and methods, IJDET discusses computational methods, algorithms, implemented prototype systems, and applications of open and distance learning. All manuscripts submitted to the journal are peer-reviewed according to the procedure consisting of initial review, peer review, and recommendation.

This issue contains the following articles:

  • Interactive Visualization Tools to Improve Learning and Teaching in Online Learning Environments
  • Technologies for Interactive Learning and Assessment Content Development
  • Supporting Children in Mastering Temporal Relations of Stories: The TERENCE Learning Approach
  • Robotic Teaching Assistance for the “Tower of Hanoi” Problem
  • Note-Taking Evaluation using Network Illustrations based on Term Co-Occurrence in a Blended Learning Environment
  • Colouring the Gaps in Learning Design: Aesthetics and the Visual in Learning
