2018 17th International Conference on Information Technology Based Higher Education and Training (ITHET)

The convergence of current technologies provides the infrastructure for transmitting and storing information faster and cheaper. For information to be used in gaining knowledge, however, environments for collecting, storing, disseminating, sharing and constructing knowledge are needed. Such environments, knowledge media, brings together telecommunication, computer and networking technologies, learning theories and cognitive sciences to form meaningful environments that provides for a variety of learner needs. ITHET 2018 will continue with the traditional themes of previous events. However, our special theme for this year is a fundamental one. We have previously had MOOCs as our special theme, but now they are just infrastructure. Even “Blended Learning” is what we all do anyway. In a time of the unprecedented access to knowledge through IT, it is time for us to revisit the fundamental purpose of our educational system. It is certainly not about knowledge anymore.

Students, mainly non-electrical engineering majors, struggle in understanding the principles of electrical engineering course. Some student struggle is probably due to 1) non-electrical engineering majors consider this course to be non essential, since it is not related to their majors, 2) have difficulty to picture how electric circuits work, and 3) lack of background in electrical engineering. To overcome these ...

Lifelong learning (LLL) has been long recognized by educators as a valuable attribute that can be an impetus for improved student learning. The Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET) criteria (2000) require that engineering programs produce "graduates who pursue life-long learning through continuing education and/or advanced degrees in engineering or related fields". Many colleges and universities have incorporated LLL ...

  • Educational Applications of the Cloud

    This chapter covers a broad range of cloud computing concepts, technologies, and challenges related to education. We will define _educational applications_ as resources related to learning, encompassing stages of development from preschool through higher and continuing education. In the second section we describe the ways cloud technology is being adopted in education. We will cover the benefits and barriers of cloud adoption based on technology found in education. In the third section we describe cloud resources used in the direct instruction of students, front-office applications (user facing), and back office-applications (administrative). The final section will describe cloud computing in research.

  • Presenting the Successful Technical Seminar

    The knowledge explosion and the desire of most business people to enhance their careers has led to a boom in continuing education classes, usually in seminar form. Conducting a successful technical seminar requires careful preparation. Pre-seminar planning includes outlining the material, developing much more material than what is needed, and arranging comfortable and appropriate facilities. At the beginning of the seminar a topical outline should be provided, and plans to take a break between topics can be announced. After the presentation, time should be allowed for a session, not only for questions and answers, but also for an evaluation to help the speaker for the preparation of future seminars.

    A lucid and up-to-date introduction to understanding electrical power utilities in an era of change Electric utilities worldwide are undergoing profound transformations: nationally owned systems are becoming privatized, privately owned systems that were previously regulated are becoming deregulated, and national systems are becoming international. Professionals in the power sector must now work in a new world in which an understanding of the principles of markets and how to evaluate investment projects under competition are essential. This text was written as a manual for the Russian Federal Energy Commission to train regional electricity rate regulators in the principles of economics and finance involved in regulating electricity markets and deregulating electricity generation. Requiring no familiarity with economics and using a minimum of mathematics, this book provides professionals in the power sector with the tools to face the new realities of electric utility operati n. Designed both as a reference for practicing professionals and as a textbook for university and continuing education programs, _Electricity Economics: Regulation and Deregulation_ discusses: * The lessons learned from international experiences * Competitive versus noncompetitive markets * Cost and supply, profit, and economic efficiency * The cost of capital, including net present value, discounting, and risk and return * Wholesale power markets, generation expansion, and customer choice * Specific international examples including the Californian, Norwegian, Spanish, and Argentine power sectors * Plus numerous exercises to help clarify and support absorption of the concepts
