e-Kampus-IS: Information system for a virtual university consortium

Onay, Pinar

Köksal, Gülser
In this study, an information system for a virtual university consortium is designed. This consortium is assumed to be formed by a large number of educational institutions from diverse geographical regions as well as some private companies specialized on e-learning. A hybrid learning approach according to which students will spend part of their time in the nearest campus is planned. The organizational, technical and educational models of the system are proposed. A centralized structure with tight connections to local universities is designed. Traditional organizational functions are to be handled by current units and new units are proposed to perform functions specific to a virtual university. The technical model that will interconnect the central and local institutions is developed. Network infrastructure, how data flow is handled among institutions and the software infrastructure are determined. The software will unify the general services provided by traditional universities, and services specific to a virtual university. © 2005 IEEE.


Examinees’ perceptions about an online assessment center and an online assessment tool : a case study
Yılmaz, Ali; Özden, M. Yaşar; Department of Computer Education and Instructional Technology (2007)
This study investigated the examinees’ perceptions about an online assessment tool and an online assessment center. In this study, a computer literacy exam (Bilisim Seviye Tespit Sınavı, BSTS) was delivered in purposively designed environment, an online assessment center, at CEC, METU (Continuing Education Center, Middle East Technical University). The data were collected from 117 participants through the “User evaluation questionnaire”, in depth interviews with 43 examinees and 7 experts. 7 participants an...

The first aim of this study is to explore the current research trends in the context of graduate programs in the field of Educational Technology in Turkey, and uncover the possible factors that influence these research trends from the perspective of faculty members working at Educational Technology graduate programs. Secondly, this study aims to understand faculty members’ expectations for the future of the field, and their suggestions on how to make Educational Technology field better than as it is today. ...
Kaplan, Göknur; Sevim, Nese (2011-11-16)
The current study is a quantitative study that aims to investigate Information Technology (IT) teachers' perceptions about using games in education. In this study survey method was used. A questionnaire was administered to a total of 31 IT teachers (18 male and 13 female). The analysis revealed an important issue regarding the perception of IT teachers about the educational use of games. The results showed that when the teachers are asked to answer a generic question about the use of games in education, the...
Uncertainty models for vector based functional curves and assessing the reliability of G-Band
Kurtar, Ahmet Kürşat; Düzgün, H. Şebnem; Department of Geodetic and Geographical Information Technologies (2006)
This study is about uncertainty medelling for vector features in geographic information systems (GIS). It has mainly two objectives which are about the band models used for uncertainty modelling . The first one is the assessment of accuracy of GBand model, which is the latest and the most complex uncertainty handling model for vector features. Some simulations and tests are applied to test the reliability of accuracy of G-Band with comparing Chrisman’s epsilon band model, which is the most frequently used b...
Optimum design and operation of 'a pump-piping-storage system'
Kaplan, H; Seireg, A; Dölen, Melik (Inderscience Publishers, 2001-01-01)
The study reported in this paper is undertaken to develop a computer simulation and an optimum design and operation strategy for a general storage system. The influence of various design parameters on the total operation cost of the system for a general delivery regime is also studied.
