    We study two problems that involve in detecting critical nodes in networks. In the first problem, we seek a set of vertices with a specified cardinality whose deletion results in maximum number of disconnected components. In an alternate version of the problem, we desire the specified amount of disconnectivity and try to minimize the number of vertices to be deleted in order to achieve this. This ...

    This article addresses issues related to traces modelling and visualization in synchronous collaborative learning. The objective is to propose models and tools for representing, transforming, sharing and visualizing traces of users' experiences. The traces here represent the users' activities in their interactions with the learning platform. Our proposition is based on reflexive learning defined a... View full abstract»

    The incessant growth of the number of Web services (WSs) makes their discovery more difficult. Standard discovery registries, such as UDDI and ebXML, have their own inherent limitations as they only describe the functionality aspect of each WS and not how it relates to others. Capturing the relationships between WSs as they interact with each other can be useful in many ways. In this paper, we pre... View full abstract»

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (377 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    This paper describes a domain independent approach for semantically annotating and representing multimedia presentations. It uses a combination of techniques to automatically discover the content of the media and, though supervised or unsupervised methods, it can generate a RDF description out of it. The domain independence is achieved using Wikipedia as a source of knowledge instead of domain Ont... View full abstract»

    This paper describes a computer assisted assessment (CAA) case study within the context of an adult school for lifelong learners. The case study shows how to apply eQuestionnaires in competence oriented scenarios, especially for self-assessment activities (where learners have to know their proficiency level in order to further develop a competence) and for embedded-assessment activities (where an ...

    This paper describes the pedagogical and technological approach to the design of learning activities that can be conducted outside the classroom by using mobile devices. The concept was realized by a role-play applied in the collaborative and mobile learning platform COLLAGE, which was developed in the framework of an EU project. The Collage project was co-financed by the European Commission withi... View full abstract»

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (356 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    It is widely recognized that algorithm visualization and individual supervision are effective to educate programming skills to novices. This paper proposes an animated diagram as a media to satisfy both of them. An animated diagram is a record of drawings associates source codes and figures. It enables novice students to review the process of individual supervision of experienced programmers drawi... View full abstract»

    The insufficiency of programming teaching staff in many universities of developing countries causes programming training in computer rooms to be ineffective. Only one teacher supervises many students in programming practice. Since tens of novice students need guidance because of their stuck in difficulties, the teacher is impossible to supervise all of them in a timely fashion. To solve the proble... View full abstract»
