The convergence of recent technologies, web and mobile technologies, provides unique opportunities and an infrastructure for both face to face and online learning environments. However, specific environments for constructing knowledge are needed. In such environments, knowledge media should bring together the technology and learning theories to form meaningful settings for learners with different academic, administrative and support needs. IETC aims to provide an environment for experts to discuss the current state of the art for learning in schools, industry and universities. Virtual environments, CSCL, m-learning, e-training and e-learning will be topics of particular interest.
IETC conference is supported by many universities and organizations, and it is venued by National Central University where the academic culture has long been a tradition. Further, the SSCI Indexed scholarly Journal TOJET sponsors the event through publishing selected papers. As it is the tenth annual event, IETC series has already formed a large, multi-national and friendly community of colleagues who love to share ideas. IETC invites you to submit proposals for papers and poster presentations.
The scope of the conference will cover but not be limited to:
