    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (129 KB)

    We discuss filtering procedures for robust extraction of a signal from noisy time series as they occur in monitoring of vital parameters in intensive care. An optimal monitoring of the haemodynamic system is important for any postoperative intensive care therapy. However, such time series exhibit trends, abrupt level changes and large spikes (outliers) as well as periods of relative stability. Als... View full abstract»

    Summary form only given. As the promises of convergence begin to materialize, and as Moore's law inexorably drives computing to your fingertips, new computing and communications usage models are striving to harness the bounty of "limitless" transistors. From relatively well understood enterprise or gaming environments to the more esoteric bio-computing or intelligent homes of tomorrow, the applica... View full abstract»

  • Where (who, what) are the drivers for the new model of learning?

    Publication Year: 2006, Page(s):23 - 28
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (144 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    The transition to the new model of learning requires changes in culture of all persons involved. The new goal is not the limited amount of acquired information any more, but the lifelong journey of acquiring new knowledge. The way to the new model of learning leads through the gradual overcoming of partial conflicts between the old model and each new element, which is brought to learning by ICT. T...

    In this paper we present an adaptation scenario for an e-learning system to individual learner needs and preferences. Learning resources are organized through shareable content objects (SCOs) - small digital chunks of knowledge, independent and self described pieces of instructional material delivered via a learning management system (LMS). The paper focuses on student's particular learning style ... View full abstract»

    In the research, education and in everyday practice, a need for and general understanding and a holistic approach is becoming more and more important. Still in concrete cases such approaches meet many challenges, mostly in form of misunderstanding between involved partners experts from different disciplines. Education in general does not provide training for such approach. This paper describes a c... View full abstract»

    Computerized tutor for programming learning helps students to understand program constructs, and syntax of target programming language. Also, it helps to improve problem-solving skill, and ability to evaluate program solution. In this paper we propose a model concept and architecture prototype of tutoring system for Programming. It is based on our age-long research and development of the Tutor-Exp... View full abstract»

    The universities/faculties in Croatia should strategically implement e-learning in the existing academic activities because of the many functional benefits that e-learning brings. In our paper we present major challenges about e-learning in Croatia on different levels: state, university, faculty and personal level. We also present results of the questionnaire about advantages and goals of e-learni... View full abstract»

    The topic of adaptation-pertinent systems was treated intensively by researchers before the era of computers, also in the field of teaching and learning. Further, e-learning is a relatively young term, but since the beginning of computer sciences in the middle of the past century, many systems and theoretical solution approaches were developed to enable digital education. This paper aims at review... View full abstract»

    A visual simulator has been developed for understanding computer structure and behavior. It is written in the Java programming language, downloaded from a Web server, and executed on major browsers. It has been designed to illustrate how a computer works visually and run not only as a Java stand-alone application but also as a Java applet. Our visual simulator reads program files written in an ass... View full abstract»

    Computer programming learning/teaching has been an active research area in computer science and engineering. The difficulty level of the teaching/learning process that novices in computer programming report is three-fold, lack of problem solving strategies, misconceptions of code syntax and semantics, and inability to develop an adequate mental model of the machine. This paper examines major diffi... View full abstract»
