Web-based learning environments are extensively used nowadays. These environments maintain and produce vast amounts of data. Such vastness lead to the application of data mining techniques so as to further improve usability and qualify e-learning platform courses content. This paper proposes a platform dependant framework for recording, processing and(More)
Earlier studies suggest that educational institutions may further benefit from Learning Management Systems (LMSs) by generating reports regarding courses. That is, with the use of tools focus to assess student's paths into course content. This paper affirms that educational meaningful information can be extracted from LMS student logged data and presents a(More)

LMS are used more and more nowadays. There are some algorithms for LMS usage assessment. The main problem is that these algorithms are rarely combined. This gap can be filled by using S-Algo which combines ranking and suggestion results of two or more suggestion/ranking algorithms into an ultimate and efficient ranking suggestion. Such efficient ranking is(More)
It is apparent that local climatic conditions have clear implications for agriculture. For this reason accurate information on local climate dynamics is essential for agricultural planning. This study introduces a methodology that aims to enhance microclimate monitoring through GPS networks. This paper describes this novel approach, its implications and(More)
Educational content quality and quantity is a crucial factor for the success of e-learning procedure. This study puts forward a proposal that enables the evaluation of online content and its usage by the learners. It proposes some new measures and metrics for content and course usage and investigates, through data mining techniques, the impact of users'(More)
We investigate the energy-saving potential of transport protocols. We focus on the system-related aspect of energy. Do we have to damage or enhance system fairness in order to provide energy efficiency? We depart from defining protocol potential; we compare different transmission strategies and protocol mechanisms; and we report our results on the impact of(More)
The usage of web applications can be measured with the use of metrics. In a LMS, a typical web application, there are no appropriate metrics which would facilitate their qualitative and quantitative measurement. The purpose of this paper is to propose the use of existing techniques with a different way, in order to analyze the log file of a typical LMS and(More)
