Nowadays, the IT industry is in a human resources crisis. The students tend to use their laptops and phones more often than in the last decades. The tutors are more and more loaded with teaching, research and administrative tasks. Consequently, the universities should take into account the use of technologies like LMSs (Learning Managements Systems), MOOCs (Massive Open Online Courses), GLOs (Generative Learning Objects) or AGLOs (Auto-Generative Learning Objects). This paper, written by Ciprian-Bogdan Chirila from Politehnica University of Timisoara, focuses on computer science disciplines (data structures and algorithms) and shows the way in which a tutor can build several auto-generative learning objects in order to assess the knowledge of a class of students.
Section 2 of the paper presents related works in the area of learning objects. We can find works which present a generative model for teaching computer science disciplines using Lego robots, principles for designing e-learning tools dedicated to the local automotive andustry, a similar model to the AGLO approach controlled by parameters but enhanced with dynamic learning and evaluation functionalities and so on. We discover that there are a lot of original model which can be used in the area of learning objects.
- 29Sebastian Fuicu, Mircea Popa, Dalibor Dobrilovic, Marius Marcu and Razvan Bogdan offer a paper named "Developing Distance Learning Environments in the Context of Cross-Border Cooperation" which consists of a collaboration between Politehnica University of Timisoara, Romania and the Technical Faculty "Mihajlo Pupin" of Zrenjanin, Serbia. This paper comes up with a low maintenance cooperation model based on a web cast system that gives both countries the opportunity to access one another's educational material, which is very helpful for pupils and students. Developing different programs and techniques to achieve the best results of distance learning has become a very important point…
- 29Nowadays, learning is not anymore a passive process. It has become more dynamic and it has begun to use another medium than the written word or the exercise book. In the article titled Evaluation of Readiness for Distance Education of Students in European Universities, professors Diana Vasilevska, Baiba Rivza and Răzvan Bogdan present the results of an evaluation process concerning one of the most spread and new educational movements – distant education. The evaluation included students from different states of Europe as Poland, Serbia, Lithuania, Latvia, Belarus and Romania. The aim of this demarche was to see if all the…
