System Architecture Model Based on Service-Oriented Architecture Technology

Gürbüz, Tarkan
Rutkauskiene, Danguole
This paper involves the research of the tools that have a positive effect on the quality, effectiveness and value of eLearning. Due the complexity of actual software systems, including web portals and networks, it is becoming more and more difficult to develop software systems suitable for their intended usage. To tackle this problem, we can develop an integrated system for curriculum planning and delivery by using new technologies with a range of individualized constructive learning strategies and social skills acquired through constant communication, active sharing of knowledge and experience, joint activities in various groups, teamwork and training (learning) environments and social networks, with development and evaluation of the work performance.


Process based information systems evaluation: Towards the attributes of "pRISE"
Özkan Yıldırım, Sevgi; Bilgen, Semih (2007-10-31)
Purpose The purpose of this paper is to demonstrate the importance of undertaking a systemic view of information systems evaluation that augments the frequently reported prescriptive (cost/benefit) analysis approaches. Design/methodology/approach The paper adopts a qualitative case perspective and derives a framework for substantive information systems evaluation factors (PRISE). Three empirical formulations are considered and a comparison made to determine the content and context of the findings. Finding...
Multi-dimensional evaluation of e-learning systems in the higher education context: empirical investigations
Köseler, Refika; Özkan Yıldırım, Sevgi; Department of Information Systems (2009)
There has been little research on assessment of learning management systems (LMS) within educational organizations as both a web-based learning system for e-learning and as a supportive tool for blended learning environments. This study proposes a conceptual e-learning assessment model, HELAM (Hexagonal e-Learning Assessment Model) suggesting a multi-dimensional approach for LMS evaluation via six dimensions: (1) system quality, (2) service quality, (3) information (content) quality, (4) learner perspective...
Using social media tools for theses and dissertations
Duman, Murat; Can, Gülfidan (null; 2017-09-10)
There is an increasing variety of social media tools that can be used by graduate students for their research. However, their use is still limited in academia. Moreover, the available literature largely focused on graduate students’ use of these tools for general purposes instead of academic purposes. Therefore, this study explored why and how graduate students use social media tools for their thesis and dissertation research and the reasons for not using them. Interviews were conducted with 17 participants...
Defect cause modeling with decision tree and regression analysis : a case study in casting industry
Bakır, Berna; Baykal, Nazife; Department of Information Systems (2007)
In this thesis, we study improvement of product quality in manufacturing industry by identifying and optimizing influential process variables that cause defects on the items produced. Real data provided by a manufacturing company from the metal casting industry were studied. Two well-known approaches, logistic regression and decision trees, were used to model the relationship between process variables and defect types. The approaches used were compared.
An implementation on use of handheld technologies in medical research areas : healt habits and history questionnaire on a pocket pc
Kıymaç, H. Esin; Baykal, Nazife; Department of Information Systems (2005)
In most of the studies, face to face interviews are required with individuals for data collection and hence to apply questionnaires. There are two methods for applying the questionnaire; the paper-based and the electronic method. The paper-based method takes time and is of a high cost to the researchers. Because of writing/reading based errors, this method may cause inaccuracy in collected data. On the contrary, conducting questionnaires in electronic environment procures savings in cost and time, improves ...
