by FormatexJan 01, 2008

Nowadays the information gains in importance if can be associate to techniques and tools that provide access, analyses and management as soon as possible. Quick reaction is always a competitive advantage in any kind of organization. The aim of the work presented in this white paper is a project to use RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) in order to work with bidirectional information, from and to an information system (RCOI - RFID Cards to Obtain Information). The case study in this paper is

Whitepaper: Using Incremental JavaServer Faces Projects for Promoting Active Learning in Teaching Web Applications & Security

by FormatexJan 01, 2008

Teaching emerging technologies in Computer Science Department is generally perceived as a challenging task. Integrated Development Environment (IDE) with Java Server Faces (JSF) to develop a Web application can be an interesting and appealing approach for teaching Web applications and security. This research paper introduces the pedagogical approach of using incremental lab projects for promoting active learning in teaching Web applications and security. The paper proposes to supplement the

Whitepaper: A Service Oriented Architecture-Framework for Modularized Virtual Learning Environments

by FormatexJan 01, 2008

This paper describes how a Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) approach, combined with an explicit Learning Objects Taxonomy, can be used as a basis for implementing a modular VLE. This paper shows that a modularized concept can be extended to the Virtual Learning Environment. A general, Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) framework for modularized Virtual Learning Environments was implemented based on the VWE Learning Objects Taxonomy. It is argued that SOA is a suitable approach for
