    We propose a radically new paradigm of the Adaptive Networking Architecture for Service Emergence (ANA-SE). In the proposed architecture, services are implemented by a collection of multiple entities called cyber-entities. These cyber-entities have functionality related to their service and follow simple behavior rules (e.g., migration, reproduction, energy exchange, mutation, death) similar to bi...

    The effectiveness of integrated virtual courses is determined by factors such as the navigability of the system. We argue that in a virtual course, which offers different educational services for different learning activities, the integration of services is a good indicator for the effectiveness of a virtual course infrastructure. We develop a set of metrics to measure the degree of integration of... View full abstract»
