The increasing growth in the use of e-learning environments, in which education is delivered and supported through information and communication technologies, has brought new challenges to academic institutions. From all the current definitions of e-learning, it can be seen that learning contents are one of the key issues for a successful e-learning experience. Therefore, there is a real need for academic staff, managers and librarians to re-think the whole process of delivering courses, information resources and information services. The book focuses on defining content management and its relationship with knowledge management, providing perspectives on how the semantic web could complement content management, how to deal with copyright restrictions, and how to describe information competencies and skills required and acquired by teachers and students in virtual environments. Offered is a design project for managing digital content for classical and distance education institutions, covering all the aspects related to the content lifecycle, integrating it into the learning process. Practical aspects such as standards for content e-learning management, a review of existing experiences of learning repositories, and a survey of available platforms for delivering courses and providing access to information resources is also covered. Lastly, the book addresses the three main factors which make it crucial in the current context: first, the web 2.0 paradigm, which breaks the content producer-consumer barrier; second, the open content movement for educational purposes, which changes the knowledge management transference model; and third, the new European Higher Education Area, where the concept of content needs to be rethought.

Portals present unique strategic challenges in the academic environment. Their conceptualization and design requires the input of campus constituents who seldom interact and whose interests are often opposite. The implementation of a portal requires a coordination of applications and databases controlled by different campus units at a level that may never before have been attempted at the institution. Building a portal is as much about constructing intra-campus bridges as it is about user interfaces and content. Designing Portals: Opportunities and Challenges discusses the current status of portals in higher education by providing insight into the role portals play in an institution's business and educational strategy, by taking the reader through the processes of conceptualization, design, and implementation of the portals (in different stages of development) at major universities and by offering insight from three producers of portal software systems in use at institutions of higher learning and elsewhere.

There is a large increase in the amount of information available on World Wide Web and also in number of online databases. This information abundance increases the complexity of locating relevant information. Such a complexity drives the need for improved and intelligent systems for search and information retrieval. Intelligent Agents are currently used to improve the search and retrieval information on World Wide Web. The use of existing search and retrieval engines with the addition of intelligent agents allows a more comprehensive search with a performance that can be measured. Intelligent Agents for Mining and Information Retrieval discusses the foundation as well as the pratical side of intelligent agents and their theory and applications for web data mining and information retrieval. The book can used for researchers at the undergraduate and post-graduate levels as well as a reference of the state-of-art for cutting edge researchers.

Using database-driven web pages or web content management (WCM) systems to manage increasingly diverse web content and to streamline workflows is a commonly practiced solution recognized in libraries to-day. However, limited library web content management models and funding constraints prevent many libraries from purchasing commercially available WCM systems. And, the lack of much needed technical expertise in building in-house WCM systems presents a great challenge for libraries of all types. Content and Workflow Management for Library Websites: Case Studies provides practical and applicable web content management solutions through case studies. It contains successful database-to-web applications as employed in a variety of academic libraries. The applications vary in scope and cover a range of practical how-to-do-it examples from database-driven web development, locally created web content management systems, systems for distributing content management responsibilities, dynamic content delivery, to open source tools, such as MySQL and PHP to manage the content. Issues and challenges associated with the development process are discussed. Authors will also discuss detours, sand traps, and missteps necessary to a real learning process.

The International Semantic Web Conference (ISWC) and the European Sem- ticWebConference(ESWC)presentthelatestresultsinresearchandapplication oftheSemanticWeb technologies. Bothhavecontributedto thepromotionof- searchontheSemanticWebintheirrespectiveregions. ResearchontheSemantic Web needs global activity which necessarily requires the spread of the Semantic Web overAsia whereit has beenunder development. The seriesofAsianSem- tic Web Conferences(ASWC) havethereforebeen establishedwith the intention of fostering researchand development of the Semantic Web and its related te- nologyinAsiabytheEastWebproject,http://odle. dit. unitn. it/eastweb/,whose objectives include fostering and promoting the cooperation between European and Asian Institutions involved in IT education and research. The ?rst ASWC was held in Beijing, during September 3-7, 2006, in this context. We initially received 253 submissions and found 221 valid submissions of abstracts after a screening process. We ?nally received 208 full papers each of which was reviewed seriously by three Program Committee members and we accepted 36 full papers and 36 short papers. The acceptance rate of full papers is 18%, which we are proud of. The acceptance rate of all the accepted papers is 36%. Di'erently from ISWC/ESWC, industrial track papers of ASWC 2006 were reviewed by the Program Committee of the research track with the same quality level but with di'erent criteria, that is, practicality was considered more importantthanoriginality.

This is the digital version of the printed book (Copyright © 2000). Winner of the 2001 Software Development Jolt Product Excellence Award This innovative text offers a practical, realistic approach to managing high-speed, high-change software development projects. Consultant James A. Highsmith shows readers how to increase collaboration and adapt to uncertainty. Many organizations start high-speed, high-change projects without knowing how to do them–and even worse, without knowing they don’t know. Successful completion of these projects is often at the expense of the project team. Adaptive Software Development emphasizes an adaptive, collaborative approach to software development. The concepts allow developers to “scale-up” rapid application development and extreme programming approaches for use on larger, more complex projects. The four goals of the book are to support an adaptive culture or mindset, in which change and uncertainty are assumed to be the natural state–not a false expectation of order introduce frameworks to guide the iterative process of managing change institute collaboration, the interaction of people on three levels: interpersonal, cultural, and structural add rigor and discipline to the RAD approach, making it scalable to the uncertainty and complexity of real-life undertakings

Web services technologies are advancing fast and being extensively deployed in many di?erent application environments. Web services based on the eXt- sible Markup Language (XML), the Simple Object Access Protocol (SOAP), andrelatedstandards,anddeployedinService-OrientedArchitectures(SOAs) are the key to Web-based interoperability for applications within and across organizations. Furthermore, they are making it possible to deploy appli- tions that can be directly used by people, and thus making the Web a rich and powerful social interaction medium. The term Web 2.0 has been coined to embrace all those new collaborative applications and to indicate a new, “social” approach to generating and distributing Web content, characterized by open communication, decentralization of authority, and freedom to share and reuse. For Web services technologies to hold their promise, it is crucial that - curity of services and their interactions with users be assured. Con?dentiality, integrity,availability,anddigitalidentitymanagementareallrequired.People need to be assured that their interactions with services over the Web are kept con?dential and the privacy of their personal information is preserved. People need to be sure that information they use for looking up and selecting s- vicesiscorrectanditsintegrityisassured.Peoplewantservicestobeavailable when needed. They also require interactions to be convenient and person- ized, in addition to being private. Addressing these requirements, especially when dealing with open distributed applications, is a formidable challenge.

Content Management Systems (CMSs) are used in almost every industry by millions of end-user organizations. In contrast to the 90s, they are no longer used as isolated applications in one organization but they support critical core operations in business ecosystems. Content management today is more interactive and more integrative: interactive because end-users are increasingly content creators themselves and integrative because content elements can be embedded into various other applications. The authors of this book investigate how Semantic Technologies can increase interactivity and integration capabilities of CMSs and discuss their business value to millions of end-user organizations. This book has therefore the objective, to reflect existing applications as well as to discuss and present new applications for CMSs that use Semantic Technologies. An evaluation of 27 CMSs concludes this book and provides a basis for IT executives that plan to adopt or replace a CMS in the near future.
