  1. 1. From blended learning to learning onlife : ICTs, time and access in higher education

    Author : Anders Norberg; Nafsika Alexiadou; Eva Mårell-Olsson; Isa Jahnke; Pavel Zgaga; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; blended learning; distance learning; e-learning; online learning; ICTs; synchronous learning; asynchronous learning; philosophy of information; learning onlife; pedagogiskt arbete; educational work;

    Abstract : Information and Communication Technologies, ICTs, has now for decades being increasingly taken into use for higher education, enabling distance learning, e-learning and online learning, mainly in parallel to mainstream educational practise. The concept Blended learning (BL) aims at the integration of ICTs with these existing educational practices. READ MORE

  2. 2. Learning text talk online : Collaborative learning in asynchronous text based discussion forums

    Author : Monica Liljeström; Agneta Hult; Anders. D. Olofsson; Lars Svensson; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : Online learning; CSCL; online assessment; collaborative learning; peer assessment; peer review; folkbildning; Swedish liberal adult education online; higher education online; socio-cultural theory; asynchronous discussion forums; ADF; evaluation;

    Abstract : The desire to translate constructivist and sociocultural approaches to learning in specific learning activities is evident in most forms of training at current, not least in online education. Teachers worldwide are struggling with questions of how to create conditions in this fairly new realm of education for learners to contribute to the development of a good quality in their own and others' learning.

  3. 3. Reinforcement learning for admission control and routing

    Author : Jakob Carlström; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; routing; admission control; reinforcement learning; Markov decision processes; temporal-difference learning; policy iteration; gain scheduling; neural networks; self-similarity; asynchronous transfer mode; max-min fairness; Information technology; Informationsteknik; Computer Systems; Datorteknik;

    Abstract : When a user requests. a connection to another user or a computer in a communications network, a routing algorithm selects a path for transferring the resulting data stream. If all suitable paths are busy, the user request cannot beserved, and is blocked. READ MORE

  4. 4. Embodied Evolution of Learning Ability

    Author : Stefan Elfwing; Henrik Christensen; Jarmo Alander; KTH; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Embodied Evolution; Evolutionary Robotics; Reinforcement Learning; Shaping Rewards; Meta-parameters; Hierarchical Reinforcement Learning; Computer science; Datalogi;

    Abstract : Embodied evolution is a methodology for evolutionary robotics that mimics the distributed, asynchronous, and autonomous properties of biological evolution. The evaluation, selection, and reproduction are carried out by cooperation and competition of the robots, without any need for human intervention. READ MORE

  5. 5. A Triple Helix of Learning Processes - How to cultivate learning, communication and collaboration among distance-education learners

    Author : Eva Rydberg Fåhraeus; KTH; []
    Keywords : Distance education; collaborative learning; Computer-supported collaborative learning; CSCL; information and communication technology; ICT; forum system; learning processes;

    Abstract : This work focuses on collaborative learning and how it canbe applied and supported in distance education. Previous workindi-cates that distance learners experience more loneliness,technical problems and lack of stimulation than face-to-facelearners do. Collaboration with peers may improve the feelingof connectedness and engagement. READ MORE
