Many can now conclude that utilizing educational technologies can be considered the primary tools to inspire students to learn. Combining these technologies with the best teaching and learning practices can engage in creativity and imagination in the engineering field. Using Technology Tools to Innovate Assessment, Reporting, and Teaching Practices in Engineering Education highlights the lack of understanding of teaching and learning with technology in higher education engineering programs while emphasizing the important use of this technology. This book aims to be essential for professors, graduate, and undergraduate students in the engineering programs interested learning the appropriate use of technological tools.

While online learning has become pervasive in many fields in higher education, it has been adopted somewhat slower in teacher education. In addition, more research is needed to empirically evaluate the effectiveness of online education in teacher preparation. Teacher Education Programs and Online Learning Tools: Innovations in Teacher Preparation presents information about current online practices and research in teacher education programs, and explores the opportunities, methods, and issues surrounding technologically innovative opportunities in teacher preparation. It presents empirical evidence of teacher candidate learning and assessment in the context of various online aspects of teacher licensure.

The First International Conference on Hybrid Learning was organized by City Univ- sity of Hong Kong, Caritas Francis Hsu College and Caritas Bianchi College of - reers in August 2008. ICHL2008 was an innovative and consolidative experience for Hong Kong tertiary higher education. The conference aims to unify the traditional classroom face-to-face learning and Internet eLearning into one teaching and learning method––hybrid learning––for both teachers and students. Its audience are educators and eLearning practitioners. The conference obtained sponsorship from six local u- versities in Hong Kong: Hong Kong Baptist University, The Hong Kong Polytechnic University, The Hong Kong University of Science and Technology, University of Hong Kong, The Chinese University of Hong Kong, and Lingnan University. It was also sponsored by Pei Hua Education Foundation Limited, and K. C. Wong Education Foundation Limited. Hybrid learning originated from North America in 2000 and is an ongoing trend. It is not merely a simple combination of direct teaching and eLearning, but comprises different learning strategies and important elements for teaching and learning. It - cuses on student center learning and provides an environment for knowledge learning. Students are given more opportunities to be active learners and practice practical skills such as communication, collaboration, critical thinking, creativity, self-management, self-study, problem solving, analysis and numeracy.

Technology-Enhanced Systems and Tools for Collaborative Learning Scaffolding is a major research theme in CSCL and CSCW research community. This book presents up-to-date research approaches for developing technology-enhanced systems and tools to support functional online collaborative learning and work settings. It comprises a variety of research topics that span from the study of frameworks and infrastructures that foster collaborative learning and work through the application of different methods (distributed e-learning repositories, content creation and customization, social networks, collaborative ontologies building, and educational games) to the use of personalization and adaptation techniques to support the development of more powerful e-collaboration settings, including methodologies and tools for analyzing students' interactions with the aim to increase students' collaborative behaviors, performance and group organization. Researchers will find in this book the latest trends in these research topics, which gives them the opportunity to deepen further on the above issues and to extend their knowledge to other areas. Academics will find practical insights on how to use conceptual and experimental approaches in their daily tasks. Developers from CSCL community can be inspired and put in practice the proposed models and evaluate them for the specific purposes of their own work and context.

The Second Workshop of Blended Learning (WBL 2008), as part of the 7th Inter- tional Conference on Web-Based Learning (ICWL 2008), was held in Zhejiang N- mal University, Jinhua, Zhejiang, China during August 20–22, 2008. WBL 2008 provided an international forum for the dissemination of original results in the design, implementation, and evaluation of blended learning systems and related areas. In particular, the aim of WBL 2008 was to bring together researchers from academia as well as commercial developers from industry to explore ideas, exchange and share experiences, and further build the blended learning research network. The inspirations and new ideas were expected to emerge from intensive discussions during formal sessions and social activities. The main focus of WBL 2008 was on the most critical areas of blended learning, namely, ‘e-Learning Platforms and Tools,’ ‘Design, Model and Framework of e- Learning Systems,’ ‘Practice and Experience Sharing,’ and ‘Pedagogical Issues.’ In total, the workshop selected 17 papers from authors of different countries for presen- tion and publication, a task which was not easy due to the high quality of the subm- ted papers. Using stringent selection criteria, submissions were rigorously reviewed based on their originality, significance, relevance, and clarity of presentation by an international Program Committee from Germany, Spain, UK, Italy, Ireland, Romania, Hong Kong, Japan, Taiwan, and Macao.

Online Learning in Music: Foundations, Frameworks, and Practices offers fresh insights into the growth of online learning in music, perspectives on theoretical models for design and development of online courses, principles for good practice in online education, and an agenda for future research. Author Judith Bowman provides a complete overview of online education in music, including guidelines and accreditation standards for online instruction as well as a look at current research on online learning in music. She also explores several theoretical models for online course design, development, and implementation, before presenting a creative approach to online course design, both for fully online and also for blended courses. As a whole, the book challenges stereotypical views of professors as "sage on the stage" or "guide on the side," characterizing the online professor instead as Director of Learning. Necessary reading for all who work in online learning in music, it also suggests important ways both to prevent problems and also to resolve those that do arise.
