Nowadays, the leading e-learning platforms are converging towards standardization. This paper presents an extension to the SCORM, today's most well acclaimed e-learning standard, enabling the modelling of course related entities that surround learning objects and content aggregations, therefore increasing the standard's modelling scope and allowing for(More)
This paper presents, VIANET, a new web framework addressing the distance learning scenario. The VIANET project aims at bringing together the most promising web technologies and standards, in order to attain a highly competitive online learning environment. Moreover, the new web framework includes a Learning Management System (LMS), a SCORM based Learning(More)

— To store, update and retrieve data from database management systems (DBMS), software architects use tools, like call-level interfaces (CLI), which provide standard functionalities to interact with DBMS. However, the emerging of NoSQL paradigm, and particularly new NoSQL DBMS providers, lead to situations where some of the standard functionalities provided(More)
The aim of this work was to evaluate the effects of cadmium on the ovarian parenchyma. An experimental study was designed with 25 Swiss albino mice (healthy females) living 50 days under controlled laboratory conditions. For the experimental group, 21 mice were selected at random and divided into 3 groups (B, C, and D) of 7 animals each; thereafter they(More)
