    Summary form only given. Stimulated by the globalization of the engineering profession and the industries that it supports, and by the increased importance of trade between countries and regions in the American hemisphere as a basis for social and economic development, a grass-roots movement to enable engineering and technology education across the hemisphere has been created over the past four years. The movement has been dubbed "engineering for the Americas", and involves educators, industry representatives, government officials, and professional groups. The basic concept calls for engineers to be educated in high quality institutions in each country in the hemisphere, with quality assurance systems in place to guarantee consistently high caliber graduates. Mutual recognition of such engineering graduates across national boundaries combined with cross-border trade agreements facilitate the flow of work and human resources throughout the hemisphere to optimal locations - for distributed economic development. This open mobility then forms the basis for a knowledge based, hemisphere-wide economy in which all nations of the hemisphere compete successfully in the overall global economy. Engineering for the Americas was formally endorsed by the Ministers and High Authorities of Science and Technology last fall in the Lima Declaration as a focus of their governments, with engineering education being their expressed priority for developing global competitiveness and delivering broad benefit to all peoples of the Americas. This paper presents the efforts undertaken by an international group of professionals who are advancing the initiative and anticipated future activities. View full abstract»

    In harsh economic downtrends, similar to those experienced in the past few years, organizational leaders within companies sought ways to reduce operating costs to boost shareholder value. Unfortunately, most of them took a short-sighted approach by eliminating some of their human capital, one of the most valuable assets of an organization. Of course, in the short term, such companies reduce their costs and therefore project a better balance sheet. Their stock price increases, major shareholders including the executives sell their shares with a nice profit. However, this action has been proven to be unhealthy. This article examines the danger behind weakening the foundation of an organization and the benefits behind strengthening the foundation by providing education and training for the employees through an industry-university partnership.

    A new remote laboratory system for learning hardware designs and experiment of digital circuits has been developed. Wide use of the Internet motivated us to develop seamless remote and actual hardware laboratories for hardware design laboratory course. Unlike existing virtual laboratories, the proposed remote laboratory utilizes actual hardware and actual measurement tools in a time sharing fashion. Hardware experimental environment is usually treated as an exclusive resource, for single user usage. However, the actual test run time is rather short and most of the time is wasted leaving those precious resources idle. To make those resources operate more efficiently, it employs shared resources and enhanced service management scheme based on the Web services. It finds an available service site and schedules the executable processing. The combinatorial use of FPGA/PC connected test hardware and PC based measurement equipments such as logic analyzer or pattern generator has make it possible to develop a remote multi-user time sharing hardware experiment system, where students at remote sites can perform actual experiments using actual hardware equipments and tools concurrently. As all students are equipped with high performance laptop PCs, CPU intensive tasks such as development of the digital circuits for FPGA can be off-loaded from the server host and can be performed by each student's client PC. A floating license scheme allows students through the Internet to utilize commercial FPGA development tools. Thus, we created virtual private network to access the floating license server over firewalls. Such a rich client configuration allows the server to concentrate on the service management tasks, such as hardware resource managements. The prototype system is scheduled to be used for the third grade CS students from year 2005. View full abstract»

    Similar to classical in-situ laboratories, remote laboratories are necessary in e-learning environments, especially in scientific and technical disciplines. This paper outlines our current research on this particular way of learning. Our research objectives consist in proposing a generic framework (independent of educational content) to allow, in one hand, tutors to integrate (both remote and virtual) laboratories in their LMS (learning management system), and in the other hand, to enable creation, distribution and exchange of pedagogical scenarios for practical works. So, authors are able to deal their scenarios through LCMS (learning content management system) and to reuse scenarios from other authors (as for any classical e-learning content). Furthermore, scenarios are no more written for a specific apparatus, but for a class of them (inverted pendulum, optical bench, ...). Two main topics are developed. First one consists of modelling laboratory and scenario structures regarding IMS-LD specification to separate content from containers. Second one consists of describing system components and functionalities using ontologies (OWL standard in our case). A prototype for automation discipline is presented. View full abstract»

    The creation of a new graduate program in product-architecture, that fuses the design culture normally associated with architecture and industrial design with the engineering institution, has presented the opportunity to better prepare students for a paradigm in which design, engineering and its application merge as an interdisciplinary, collaborative endeavor. In turn this graduate program has been a catalyst to draw in undergraduates in traditional engineering disciplines to this new mode in higher education that also bridges the gap between: undergraduate and graduate education, visual design and engineering disciplines and the academic and professional setting. At the heart of this new approach is the effective use of information technology. This is illustrated through a project to design a museum building and multimedia exhibition to display a supersonic Concorde aircraft. The design of the building and of the interactive, multimedia exhibit take cues and content from engineering analysis of the aircraft design as it relates to sub-sonic and supersonic flight.

    The traffic light/voice controller is a sequential machine to be analyzed and programmed through a multi-step process. Both the hands-on and the virtual environments are described. The design projects of the four teams of fourth year students who developed the device involved: analysis of existing sequential machines in traffic light controllers, timing and synchronization, role and introduction of LEDs and of the push buttons for pedestrian walk requests and visual signals and various regimes of operation and flashing lights/voice synthesis sequence. The light system comprises a programmable ALTERA logic unit with a wired up set of LEDs and other electronic components. A low cost complex programmable logic device (CPLD) by ALTERA is used in the voice synthesis part of the traffic controller interface. The novelty of this digital design project is given by the systematic procedure set for the analysis of the controller operation and of the various circuits and digital elements involved. A CVI-based (computer visualization interface) simulation accompanies the real-time operation of the traffic light controller and time simulations of electric signals (shift registers for machine states) are also part of this teaching/learning tool. The students and other users can perform a virtual (remote) operation of the lights/voice sequence, test the electronic components and the programmable unit and check their results with the CVI simulation.

    This paper presents a learning system (LS) which offers Greek Sign Language videos in correspondence to every text in the learning environment. The system is designed notably for deaf adults for the purpose of their lifelong vocational and educational training. In the LS, the special needs of Deaf learners are satisfied, e.g. bilingual information (text and sign language), high level of visualization, interactive and explorative leaning, and the potential of learning in peer groups via video conferencing. In this environment, for the first time, Greek signers are able to learn in their own language, the sign language. In addressing the above context, the LS is adapted to the specific learning problems of the target group, i.e. deaf adolescents and young adults. The provided content is bilingual. Bilingual experiments (spoken and signed language) in schools of the deaf and hearing impaired have shown that the use of sign language in the classroom enhance reading competence significantly. The basic objective of the present e-learning environment is the support of the equal rights of Deaf people for their access and real attendance in the vocational and educational training. The development of LS and this paper has been supported by Leonardo Da Vinci Framework Program, "DELFE" project, of European Union. View full abstract»

    Since 2/13/2003, lead-free has been a law in the European Union. The implementation date is 7/1/2006. That means, starting from that date, all electronic equipment cannot be made in and shipped to the EU if they have lead content right now, the electronics industry is working/learning very hard to design and manufacture lead-free products. The objective of this paper is to develop a Web-based course on designing and manufacturing of lead-free products. It contains teaching modules on the key elements of lead-free products and can be modified to produce short courses for practicing engineering professionals and extended for delivery on the Web to a wide variety of audiences. By teaching it as an Internet-based course, it can be provided to universities and associated learning institutions, which then have the opportunity to select and arrange the modules in difference ways to customize the courses for their students and sponsors.

    Establishing a reliable electronic delivery process for student assignments is challenging in an Internet-dependent environment The most common method for electronic delivery is e-mail which frequently is vulnerable to malicious attack. In large academic institutions such an attack commonly results in delays of days until stability is restored. Additionally, the e-mail delivery pipeline for assignment materials included as attachments involves several steps that become onerous in situations involving frequent and numerous communications. A Web- and file-sharing-enabled solution yields a reliable document handling pipeline elegant in its efficiency, simplicity, ease of installation and maintenance, and paperless workflow. Students quickly and easily post and retrieve assignment materials while instructors efficiently maintain a local document repository, easily retrieve newly posted documents, annotate and return graded materials. Reliability is restored by this Web-based virus-free process, tested in two information technology classes at Brigham Young University. View full abstract»

    Learning difficulties have been neglected due to over-focusing on technology and dissemination of content. Many of such endeavors targeted on delivering content packages to students and/or trainees; once the content was delivered, all responsibility of learning was loaded to the learners. The only support to them was through e-communication facilities which were also treated as a revolutionary mean to student-student and student-instructor communication. Such communication is treated as sufficient for facilitating learning. The learning content organization tools supporting certain content packaging and delivery standards were short of facilities to support activity-based learning content. This study outlines a set of guidelines to develop a learning content management system which would serve content development on line, making it a time and place independent process. The guidelines are based on more interactivity in learning objects, recording students' reactions to learning materials, cooperation of teachers, enabling a reusable learning object to accomplish a set of instructional objectives, contextualization of content in learning object is encouraged, metadata focusing more on cognitive involvement and functionalities of the learning setting.

    Development of digital learning materials has been supported by some industry standards. The standards allowed reuse of materials between different systems and platforms and to provide vital information of the design and content of materials to potential users. However, implementing industry standards, e.g. SCORM, for a learning content management system is a problematic process. This study outlined a set of guidelines to develop a learning content management system based on online course development paradigm. The paper summarizes those guidelines and exemplifies the content organization in the implemented system. View full abstract»

    Learning styles come from three theories: perceptual modality, information processing and personality patterns. I present these paradigms, but I would rather concentrate on a complex model, in which I examine the connection of learning styles and the indirect teaching methods. I describe a model of the electronic distance educational system and I analyse the main pedagogical aspects of the electronic teaching-learning process. Finally I relate some experiences of distance learning courses in Budapest Tech. View full abstract»

    In this paper, we show the use of XSL style sheets in the evaluation process at two levels, for the tests presentation on the screen and for walking over tests in the proposed automata model. First, XSL style sheets allow presenting in different ways the same data structure. Secondly, with XSL style sheets, several walking strategies on the same set of tests are defined. Then, this approach makes possible to present dynamically tests and walking strategies adapted automatically to learners' profiles and proves the flexibility the automata model offers in managing the educational evaluation process.

    ICT-mediated learning appears to hold great promise for achieving the goal of education for all such as, reducing the long-existing disparity between north and south, reducing poverty and promoting social inclusion. However, the integration of ICTs in education requires considerable investment in time and resources. Consequently, when planning to integrate ICT in education and training policy makers should be able to use evidence-based information for making sound decisions. In spite of the critical importance of sound research to guide policy and practice, it appears that there is a lack of valid and reliable evidence-based information in the field of learning technology. Many studies conducted during the past 70 years have failed to establish a significant difference in effectiveness between learning technology and traditional methods. While these findings tend to suggest that learning technology does not considerably improve learning, the fundamental question that remains unanswered is, were the researchers assessing the effectiveness of ICTs or were they simply assessing the effectiveness of instructional treatments that were initially less than perfect? If the instructional treatment is weak or flawed it may lead the researcher to reach false conclusions. The purpose of this paper is to propose a framework for establishing, a priori, the effectiveness of ICT-mediated instructional treatments used in educational research. View full abstract»

    This paper discusses how the use of a high-quality video-conferencing system, a chat system, and a Web-based voting system promotes the establishment of an effective leaning environment, particularly for cross-cultural learning. A cross-cultural learning experiment was conducted in January, 2005. Classrooms in the IT education hall at Hokkaido University, Japan and the discovery laboratory of the arctic region supercomputing center at the University of Alaska, Fairbanks were connected through the Internet and an experimental network. The effect the experiment had was evaluated by analyzing a questionnaire that was given to students after the experimental class was held at both universities. Our results suggest that the integration of information and communication technology developed in this study provides an effective cross-cultural learning environment and students found this type of language leaning both enjoyable and valuable.

    Although ICT-mediated learning is a main stay in second language learning, its full impact on student achievement is still unknown. A significant knowledge gap still exists regarding students' outcomes when ICT mediated testing is used for assessing listening comprehension and speaking ability in second language learning. Additionally, little is known regarding the interactive effects of students' mode of information processing (cognitive style field-dependent/field independent) and ICT mediated testing of listening comprehension and speaking ability in second language learning. This paper reports the findings of a quasi-experimental longitudinal study conducted to determine the relationship between cognitive style field-dependent/field-independent and the performance of adult learners on ICT mediated testing of listening comprehension and speaking ability in second language. Findings indicate that there is no interactive effect of learners' cognitive style (field-dependent/field independent) and ICT mediated testing of listening comprehension and speaking ability.

    A concept that has been sufficiently explored at the graduate programs lately is the multidisciplinarity. That old method when the teacher goes to the classroom to teach his course, without interacts with another courses involved in program and the students can't see the application of the concept that had learn, don't work any more. With the constant evolution of technology, the commitment with multidisciplinarity in the education has been essential, mainly in graduate programs. It is because the computer engineering program at UnicenP, since the foundation, comes working aiming the integration between the courses and the projects development involving many areas of knowledge.
