Organized by : The Hong Kong Web Society
In Cooperation With : City University of Hong Kong, The Hong Kong Polytechnic University
With the rapid development of Web-based learning and new concepts like virtual classrooms, virtual laboratories and virtual universities, many issues need to be addressed. On the technical side, there is a need for the effective technology for deployment of Web-based education. On the learning side, the cyber mode of learning is very different from the classroom-based learning. How can instructional development cope with this new style of learning? On the management side, the establishment of the cyber university imposes very different requirements for the set up. Does industry-university partnership provide a solution to addressing the technological and management issues? As with many other new developments, more research is needed to establish the concepts and best practice for Web-based learning.
The rapidly growing demand for e-learning is forcing educational institutions to expand in remote learning through the Web in terms of technological and pedagogical development. The successful application of e-learning provides enhancements in workforce performance, helps to lower cost, and encourages innovation. This conference aims at providing an in-depth study of the technical, pedagogical, as well as management issues of Web-based learning. The Hong Kong Web Society is organizing this conference in conjunction with City University of Hong Kong and the Hong Kong Polytechnic University to provide a forum to bring together educators, researchers, technologists and implementers of Web-based learning from around the world to discuss the state of the art in this area.Conference Objective
