The 2004 International Workshop on Distance Education Technologies (DET'2004)

http://otc.sjsmit.edu.tw/link/dms2004.htm

In conjunction with
the 10th International Conference on Distributed Multimedia Systems (DMS'2004)
Hotel Sofitel, San Francisco Bay
September 8 - 10, 2004

Organized by
Knowledge Systems Institute

THEME

This workshop covers practical solutions, especially automatic technologies of distance learning. Educational methodologies and theory are less emphasized. The purpose of this workshop is to combine communication mechanisms, intelligent methods, and educational technologies in the use of distance education. Discussions of computational methods, algorithms, implemented prototype systems, and applications of open and distance learning are the focuses. Practical experiences and surveys of using distance learning systems are also welcome. DET'2004 will be held in conjunction with the 10th International Conference on Distributed Multimedia Systems (DMS'2004):
