BRAIN: Software Application for Disabled Students

Modern universities rely increasingly on communication technologies for the educational processes and the management of academic databases. In the paperSoftware Application for Disabled Students” the researchers Laszlo Csiki, Andrei Gabor, Marius Popescu, and Antoanela Naaji present the methodology of a software application for android users named “Virtual University”. This virtual platform allows each student to connect in real time with the secretariat of the university, pay their educational fees and dues online and also access online courses and grades.

BRAIN: Integrating MOOCs in Embedded Systems Blended Courses

The Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) phenomenon has been growing in popularity and importance in the last decade, receiving valuable recognition from renowned universities from all over the world. MOOC can be simply defined as an online course aimed at unlimited participation and open access via the web. In the latest issue of the BRAIN Journal, Răzvan Bogdan’s paper approaches a modality of integrating MOOCs into embedded systems higher education.

The academic field of Embedded Systems aims to enhance student’s understanding through various methods, however students find the concepts as being very monotonous and tend to avoid building practical solutions. In this paper, the author presents the introduction of MOOCs with no synchronization into the Embedded Systems courses at “Politehnica” University of Timișoara, Romania.

LIBRI (Recherche et Innovation Eclectique en Linguistique et Littérature)

LIBRI (Recherche et Innovation Eclectique en Linguistique et Littérature) représente la matérialisation d’un projet initié par deux universitaires, Bogdan Patrut et Ioan – Lucian Popa.

Il s’agit d’une revue en ligne, érudite, internationale, destinée aux spécialistes qui s’intéressent à la linguistique, à la littérature, aux études culturelles et aux autres domaines connexes. La rédaction ne publie que des articles originaux, rédigés en anglais ou en français.

Nous nous proposons d’explorer et d’examiner les mondes d’idées existants et d’établir de nouveaux territoires. Nous envisageons de collaborer avec des centres d’excellence du monde entier afin de fournir des informations et des comptes rendus autorisés dans les disciplines et les domaines spécialisés des sciences humaines. Notre ambition est d’encourager et de soutenir la pensée innovante, mais nous espérons également devenir une partie importante dans le paysage des publications académiques. Notre but est de faire de LiBRI une publication où les jeunes chercheurs, de même que les chercheurs réputés publient, comparent leur travail et établissent des collaborations.



BRAIN: An Intelligent Method to Process Romanian Language Internet Reviews

Internet reviews can be seen as an efficient communication form, adapted to the digital world of today. However, researchers are, for the most part, oriented towards English based ones. The Romanian language reviews exhibit specific grammar rules and challenges that need customized methods to be dealt with. In their paper, Versavia-Maria Ancusa, Olimpia Ban, and Marian Cornea offer a method for aggregating heterogeneous Romanian language reviews into a homogenous corpus, fit for further analyse.

Basically, their aim is to buil a eWOM data cleaning algorithm and apply it on the Romanian language. The algorithm will be based on a three-phase process. The first stage consists in data collection, it continues with the basic processing, and focuses, in the last stage, on analyzing.
