Governments around the globe are recognizing the economic ramifications of a digitally literate citizenry and implementing systemic strategies to advance digital literacy. Awareness of the growing importance of digital literacy in today’s workplace coexists paradoxically with apparent foot-dragging on the part of many universities in assessment and(More)
Technology has transformed education, perhaps most evidently in course delivery options. However, compelling questions remain about how technology impacts learning. Adaptive learning tools are technology-based artifacts that interact with learners and vary presentation based upon that interaction. This study examines completion rates and exercise scores for(More)
Permutations of traditional and online learning are rapidly advancing along a blended continuum, prompting conjecture that learning and e-learning will soon be indistinguishable. As variations of blended learning evolve, educators worldwide must develop better understanding of how effective interaction with course content impacts engagement and learning.(More)
Information and communication technology literacy is increasingly referred to as the fourth literacy. However, it is neither as well understood nor as readily assessed as reading, writing, and arithmetic. This paper argues that better understanding and more effective measurement of ICT literacy are needed to gauge readiness to both pursue higher education(More)
Device interconnectedness in video conferencing, telephony, texting, file-sharing and application handoff has become a critical battleground for tech giants. In this panel, we will distinguish between approaches to device connectivity and application continuity, give an overview of current solutions and share projections for the future of connectivity.(More)
IS enrollments have been in decline for the past few years. This is disconcerting given the fact that the need for an IT literate workforce continues to increase. One way some colleges and universities might address this dilemma is through the development of an IT literacy course offered as a service course to the university community. Such a course has the(More)
The information technology quotient is on the rise in every field imaginable – computers and the Internet are everywhere. Essential information technology (IT) competencies are often taken for granted, to the detriment of students who lack computing and Internet skills. A standard set of computer skills that clearly define the IT competent individual has(More)
The aim of this paper is to discuss the main features of a desktop application designed to study the evolution of heart diseases in the community based on the evolution of a group of electrocardiographic parameters. Periodically. Cornell and Sokolow indexes are computed to study ventricular hypertrophy; spatial dispersion of QT interval is calculated to(More)
Characterising contextual equivalence is a long-standing issue for higher-order (process) languages. In the setting of a higher-order π-calculus with sessions, we develop characteristic bisimilarity, a typed bisimilarity which fully characterises contextual equivalence. To our knowledge, ours is the first characterisation of its kind. Using simple values(More)
