This book is concerned with the mobile, ubiquitous, and pervasive learning arena. It present a collection of works corresponding to four categories: reviews, studies, conceptual proposals, and approaches. As a result of the submission and revision processes eight manuscripts were accepted and organized into the aforementioned four parts as follows: ·Review: a couple of chapters offer a survey of related works. One concerns with the diversity of mobile, ubiquitous, and pervasive labor, where interested findings are unveiled based on correlations. Other focuses on adaptive and adaptable architectures that are suitable to implement ubiquitous learning sceneries, whose contribution represents a model of a domain specific architecture. ·Studies: two chapters explore issues related to the effect of question styles made through smartphones and tablets, and the disposition of teachers to exploit mobile devices at classroom. ·Conceptual: a pair of chapters offer a given proposal, the first to develop adaptive mobile learning systems by means of a framework based on contextual information; and the second with the purpose to share some guidelines of how to apply cloud computing in the development and operation of mobile. ·Approaches: two chapters apply a specific paradigm as part of a whole application and reveal the achieved impact. One of them uses augmented reality to encourage children to learn about trees as context-sensitive informal learning. The other, immerses children in playing a learning game to learn math by cooperating between members team and interacting through mobile devices. This volume will be a source of interest for researchers, practitioners, professors, and postgraduate students aimed at updating their knowledge and finding targets for future work in the mobile, ubiquitous, and pervasive learning field!

Adaptive Mobile Computing: Advances in Processing Mobile Data Sets explores the latest advancements in producing, processing and securing mobile data sets. The book provides the elements needed to deepen understanding of this trend which, over the last decade, has seen exponential growth in the number and capabilities of mobile devices. The pervasiveness, sensing capabilities and computational power of mobile devices have turned them into a fundamental instrument in everyday life for a large part of the human population. This fact makes mobile devices an incredibly rich source of data about the dynamics of human behavior, a pervasive wireless sensors network with substantial computational power and an extremely appealing target for a new generation of threats. Offers a coherent and realistic image of today’s architectures, techniques, protocols, components, orchestration, choreography and development related to mobile computing Explains state-of-the-art technological solutions for the main issues hindering the development of next-generation pervasive systems including: supporting components for collecting data intelligently, handling resource and data management, accounting for fault tolerance, security, monitoring and control, addressing the relation with the Internet of Things and Big Data and depicting applications for pervasive context-aware processing Presents the benefits of mobile computing and the development process of scientific and commercial applications and platforms to support them Familiarizes readers with the concepts and technologies that are successfully used in the implementation of pervasive/ubiquitous systems

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2010 im Fachbereich Informatik - Internet, neue Technologien, Universität Hamburg, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Diese Ausarbeitung befasst sich mit dem Thema Computational Soical Network Analysis. Ziel ist es, dem Leser einen Einblick in diese Thematik zu verschaffen. Dabei werden Hintergründe, anwendbare Methoden und Tools vorgestellt, die hierbei Verwendung finden. Zunächst wird dabei näher auf den Hintergrund, also warum dieses Gebiet als Forschungsgegenstand so interessant ist, eingegangen. Anschließend werden verschiedene Aspekte, die man im Rahmen der Analyse sozialer Netzwerke untersuchen kann benannt. In diesem Zusammenhang werden auch zwei verschiedene Kategorien zur formalen Analyse benannt. Zur Verdeutlichung wird die Verwendung dieser am Ende des Kapitels auch noch einmal anhand eines Praxisbeispiels gezeigt. Das nächste Kapitel befasst sich mit der Fragstellung, wie Schlüsselfiguren in Netzwerken ermittelt werden können und was für Rollen diese spielen. Dabei werden auch die verschiedenen Arten von Schlüsselfiguren benannt. Eine weitere zentrale Rolle in der Analyse sozialer Netzwerke nehmen Gruppen ein. Die Bedeutung von Gruppen und wie man sie ermitteln kann wird im nächsten Kapitel erläutert. Aufbauend auf den Gruppen sollen Interaktionen innerhalb von Netzwerken untersucht werden. Hierfür werden zunächst die nötigen Werkzeuge, wie die SCAN oder DISSECT Methode vorgestellt und anschließend die Einsatzgebiete anhand von Beispielen verdeutlicht. Im 7. Kapitel wird eine eLearning Plattform näher betrachtet. Hierbei werden zunächst die Eigenschaften und Besonderheiten von eLearning Plattformen beschrieben und anschießend anhand eines Praxisbeispiels verschiedene Methoden zur Analyse sozialer Netzwerke angewendet.
