Using cognitive maps for modeling project success
Atasoy, Güzide; Dikmen Toker, İrem; Department of Civil Engineering (2007)
In order to evaluate a project as successful or not, initially, the questions of “what are the factors affecting the success” and “according to whom and which criteria should the success be measured” should be answered. Both the factors and their influences vary depending on a project’s specific characteristics, different environmental factors affecting it, and different parties involved. These factors are not independent of each other and the interrelationship between them should be investigated as a whole...
Using system dynamics to support strategic decision-making: the case of digitalization in modular construction company
Kaya, Hazal Deniz; Dikmen Toker, İrem; Department of Civil Engineering (2022-7)
Digital technologies have become a part of the transformative change of industries for more efficient production, business models, and value chains with the onset of Industry 4.0. The AEC business had to follow this trend due to globalization and the increasing complexity of projects, and the use of digital technologies for innovation has become increasingly common. However, it is common knowledge that the construction industry takes a long time to incorporate new technology and adapt business models to dig...
Using Computer Spreadsheets in Teaching Mechanisms
Söylemez, Eres (2008-09-20)
In this paper the use of widely available user friendly spreadsheet programs such as Microsoft (R) Excel in teaching mechanisms is explained and its advantages over off-the-shelf programs are shown. Instead of using specific costly programs for the analysis and synthesis of different mechanisms, the students are first thought certain features of Excel and later starting with the analysis of single loop mechanisms, the solution of more complex problems in the analysis and synthesis of mechanisms are attempte...
Using Social Networking Sites for Teaching and Learning: Students' Involvement in and Acceptance of Facebook (R) as a Course Management System
Albayrak, Duygu; Yıldırım, Zahide (2015-04-01)
This study investigates students' involvement in Facebook (R) as a course management system (CMS), Facebook acceptance, and the relationships between the two. The study used Facebook as a CMS in two freshman courses and employed mixed method as part of an action-research approach. Forty-two students participated in the study, and 12 of those students were selected for face-to-face interviews through maximum variation sampling. Quantitative data were collected through questionnaires and course Facebook page ...
Using a mobile learning application for troubleshooting the technical problems: a case study
Özdemir, Yusuf Murat; Delialioğlu, Ömer; Department of Computer Education and Instructional Technology (2015)
Decrease in student and instructor motivation and satisfaction can be an important problem if technical problems in classroom and offices are not solved timely in school settings. Besides, difficulties in getting technical support in the beginning or during the class hour can make instructors reluctant to use technology in their future classes. In this study, the effects of the technology related problems that teaching staff, which were faculty members and research assistants in higher education, were inves...
