In this paper, we present a clinical decision support system (CDSS) for the analysis of heart failure (HF) patients, providing various outputs such as an HF severity evaluation, HF-type prediction, as well as a management interface that compares the different patients' follow-ups. The whole system is composed of a part of intelligent core and of an HF(More)
In this study, we describe an automatic classifier of patients with Heart Failure designed for a telemonitoring scenario, improving the results obtained in our previous works. Our previous studies showed that the technique that better processes the heart failure typical telemonitoring-parameters is the Classification Tree. We therefore decided to analyze(More)
Starting with the assumption that collaborative learning and working will occupy a strategic role in undergraduate, post-graduate and life-long education as well as in collaborative, flexible and distant working, in this paper we present a reflection on how to reduce the gap between constructivist and CSCL/W theories and practices, and open source(More)
In this work informal learning theories and practices and social networking features are taken as starting points to build a reference collaboration model to support collaborative knowledge construction in Distributed Communities of Practices. Sample web 2.0 applications to fit the collaboration model purposes are then described. The provided model can give(More)
In this paper we describe an Heart Failure analysis Dashboard that, combined with a handy device for the automatic acquisition of a set of patient's clinical parameters, allows to support telemonitoring functions. The Dashboard's intelligent core is a Computer Decision Support System designed to assist the clinical decision of non-specialist caring(More)
Effectively managing documents is a strategic requirement for every organization. Available document management systems (DMSs) often lack effective functions for automatic document management. One reason is that relevant information frequently is conveyed by unstructured documents, whose content cannot be easily accessed and processed by applications. This(More)
This article considers the affordances of social networking theories and tools to build new and effective e-learning practices. We argue that “connectivism” (social networking applied to learning and knowledge contexts) can lead to a reconceptualization of learning in which formal, nonformal, and informal learning can be integrated as to build potentially(More)
