Open Source: A Metaphor for E-Learning

Alex Koohang, Keith Harman
2005 Informing Science  
It builds the case that e-learning and open source movement are rooted in the constructivist movement and the constructivist movement is itself rooted in the pragmatism and instrumentalism that pervades  ...  As a result, it is recommended that the use of open source as metaphor for e-learning be further explored in three areas: instructional practices, instructional platforms, and instructional philosophy.  ...  To accomplish this objective, this paper presents the case that: (1) e-learning and open source movement are rooted in the constructivist movement and (2) the constructivist movement is itself rooted in  ...

On the Prospects and Concerns of Integrating Open Source Software Environment in Software Engineering Education

Pankaj Kamthan
2007 Journal of Information Technology Education  
In doing so, the cases of the adoption of OSS process model, use of OSS as a Computer Aided Software Engineering (CASE) tool, OSS as a standalone sub-system, and open source code reuse are considered.  ...  As the development and use of OSS becomes prominent, the question of its integration in education arises.  ...  Acknowledgments The author would like to thank his undergraduate and graduate students from courses over the years for their participation, and Hsueh-Ieng Pai (Concordia University, Montreal, Canada) and  ...

Implementing Constructivist Pedagogical Model in Dynamic Distance Learning Framework [chapter]

Shakeel A. Khoja, Faisal Sana, Abid Karim, Arif Ali Rehman
2008 Communications in Computer and Information Science  
Hence, learning is the integration of new knowledge and behaviors into a framework and subsequently recalling relevant events in the appropriate situation.  ...  Constructivists propose that the construction for new knowledge starts from one's observations of events through past experiences.  ...  learning framework incorporating adaptive learning techniques, its models and architectures for WWW, provide more help to students for interactive learning as compared to traditional systems.  ...
