A hierarchical modeling tool for ınstructional design

Azgür, Mehmet Serhat
A component-oriented tool for hierarchical modeling of instructional designs is developed. The motivation is to show that hierarchical representation of instructional designs is easier, better and more effective for modeling. Additionally a modeling language is developed to provide an effective, flexible and easy to use integration model in which all teaching components are discovered, defined and connected. In order to fulfill the above purposes an abstract notation is developed that is sufficiently general and adapting top-down hierarchic approach to represent Units of Learning (UoL), Operational Knowledge Units (OKU), Learning Objects (LO), and Learning Components (LC) with respect to the common structures found in different instructional models. COSEML, a top-down hierarchic, and component oriented modeling language has been used as a reference and the core concept in developing the Educational Component Oriented Modeling Language (ECOML). The high-level architecture of ECOML provides the means for designing instructional structures. It describes how LOs, UoLs, OKUs and LCs are sequenced in a certain context or knowledge domain. The resulting model can be reused in different contexts and across different educational platforms.


A monolithic approach to automated composition of semantic web services with the event calculus
Okutan, Çağla; Çiçekli, Fehime Nihan; Department of Computer Engineering (2009)
In this thesis, a web service composition and execution framework is presented for semanti- cally annotated web services. A monolithic approach to automated web service composition and execution problem is chosen, which provides some benefits by separating the composi- tion and execution phases. An AI planning method using a logical formalism called Event Calculus is chosen for the composition phase. This formalism allows one to generate a nar- rative of actions and temporal orderings using abductive planni...
Utilization of feature modeling in axiomatic design
Üçtepe, Orhan; Doğru, Ali Hikmet; Department of Computer Engineering (2008)
This thesis provides an approach to use feature modeling with a set of guidelines for requirements definition and decomposition activities of the axiomatic design methodology. A tool that supports the development of feature models and modeling of the Axiomatic Design activities is implemented to be utilized for guiding the designer. Axiomatic Design suggested four domains of information in the transformation of the problem definition to the solution, and provided mechanisms for supporting the mapping among ...
A remote sensing computer-assisted learning tool developed using the unified modeling language
Friedrich, J; Karslıoğlu, Mahmut Onur (Elsevier BV, 2004-07-01)
The goal of this work has been to create an easy-to-use and simple-to-make learning tool for remote sensing at an introductory level. Many students struggle to comprehend what seems to be a very basic knowledge of digital images, image processing and image arithmetic, for example. Because professional programs are generally too complex and overwhelming for beginners and often not tailored to the specific needs of a course regarding functionality, a computer-assisted learning (CAL) program was developed base...
A knowledge based product line for semantic modeling of web service families
Orhan, Umut; Doğru, Ali Hikmet; Department of Computer Engineering (2008)
Some mechanisms to enable an effective transition from domain models to web service descriptions are developed. The introduced domain modeling support provides verification and correction on the customization part. An automated mapping mechanism from the domain model to web service ontologies is also developed. The proposed approach is based on Feature-Oriented Domain Analysis (FODA), Semantic Web technologies and ebXML Business Process Specification Schema (ebBP). Major contributions of this work are the c...
A Reflexion Model based Architecture Conformance Analysis Toolkit for OSGi-compliant Applications
Cilden, Evren; Oğuztüzün, Mehmet Halit S. (2017-04-07)
Component-based software platforms like OSGi facilitate the development of complex software. As software systems become more complicated, tool support is often a necessity for assuring the conformance between designed and implemented architectures. We present ARTOS, an architecture toolkit to facilitate the design and conformance analysis of the software running on the OSGi platform. The toolkit consists of an architecture editor and a conformance analyzer. The editor provides definition constructs specific...
