    About AEL

  • The 2018 International Workshop on Advanced E-Learning (AEL’2018) will be co-located with the 11th International Conference on Ubi-media Computing (U-Media’2018). AEL’2018 is an international major forum for researchers and practitioners in various disciplines to share and exchange experiences in the emerging research area of advanced E-learning.

    The main theme of AEL’2018 is “Big Education: Scalable, Sustainable, and Creative Learning in Authentic Contexts”. In this century, scalability, sustainability, and creativity are critical components of any learning programs, particularly learning curricula changes a lot with advanced technology. Scalability is usually defined as an ability of learning programs to be adapted in a wide variety of contexts and sustainability refers to an ability of learning programs to remain in use for long term, while creativity generally refers to the production of novel and useful ideas; in education, creativity is to foster learners to use knowledge, imagination, and judgment to solve problems in an innovative, high quality, and appropriate manner. So AEL’2018 will cover various aspects of pedagogical principles, designs, ergonomics and technological issues related the main theme. The workshop of this year will especially focus on advanced E-learning that facilitates healthy, happy and fun learning in authentic learning environments or ecosystems with wearable devices, IOT, cloud service, deep learning or other advanced pedagogical and technological tools. Therefore, AEL’2018 encourages experts to develop novel and imaginative ideas to explore and meet the needs of these above-mentioned rapidly expanding and exciting fields of research.

    The proceedings will be published by IEEE and best papers will be recommended for publication in special issues of leading international journals. To this end, topics of interests include but not limit to the following:
