    The “schooling industry” is faced with an inescapable demand to redefine its endeavors in terms of producing learning, rather than providing instructions. We propose a hybrid learning model to attract distance as well as traditional students. One of the major components of this model is the Web-based learning and interaction. We review the available avenues of distance learning and off... View full abstract»

    There is a rapid growth in mobile computing which allows mobile applications to access and manipulate information from anywhere at any time. In our view this growth is primarily driven by two factors: the evolution of mobile hardware such as mobile phones, laptops, and pagers; and the explosion of Internet and emerging wireless network infrastructure. For businesses it is now conceivable to delive... View full abstract»

    Current research on distributed knowledge processes suggests a critical conflict between knowledge processes in groups and the technologies built to support them. The conflict centers on observations that authentic and efficient knowledge creation and sharing is deeply embedded in an interpersonal face to face context, but that technologies to support distributed knowledge processes rely on the as...

    Supply chains provide composite services or products by utilizing autonomous, heterogeneous and/or conversational services provided by independent enterprises. In this paper, we propose a service-oriented process (SOP) model that can model and construct efficient multi-enterprise supply chains as multi-enterprise processes (MEPs). In particular, the SOP model supports service activities for modeli... View full abstract»
