[EN] Nowadays there are many approaches aimed at helping learners acquire knowledge through the Internet. Virtual Learning Environments (VLE) facilitate the acquisition and practice of skills, but some of these learning platforms are not evaluated or do not follow a standard that guarantees the quality of the tasks involved. In this paper, we set out a proposal for the standardization of the evaluation of VLEs available on the World Wide Web. Thus, the main objective of this study is to establish an evaluation template with which to test whether a VLE is appropriate for computer-assisted language learning (CALL). In the...

[EN] The Valencian Network of Educational Innovation in Optics consists of three groups from the Universitat de València, Universitat Jaume I, and Universitat Politècnica de València. The participants in the network present an extensive background on performing actions to improve teaching practice. They have been involved for years in scientific outreach activities and in a number of educational innovation projects, which have developed innovative teaching materials. With the aim of sharing their experience and enhance their performance, the three groups have decided to join forces to become a Network of Educational Innovation whose main projects are described in this communication.

[EN] In this paper, a student evaluation methodology which applies the concept of continuous assessment proposed by Bologna is presented for new degrees in higher education. An important part of the student's final grade is based on the performance of several individual works throughout the semester. The paper shows the correction system used which is based on using a spreadsheet with macros and a template in which the student provides the solution of each task. The employ of this correction system together with the available e-learning platform allows the teachers to perform automatic tasks evaluations compatible with courses with large...

[EN] The aim of this work is to demonstrate the importance of the fact that from the beginning of the course students and teachers identify what is the initial knowledge level and the level that students must reach at the end of the course. This is important for the student because it will demonstrate the importance of the continuous assessment (Bologne methodology) and in the other hand, for the teachers to know the initial level of their students. It can give influence to detect deficiencies and solve them to a well ending course. This helps a lot to students with...

[EN] The main objective of the present work is the selection and integration of different methodologies among those applicable within the framework of the European Higher Education Area to combine teaching methods with high implication from both lecturers and students. The aim is to enhance the students’ motivation, by means of which they should learn both combustion fundamentals as well as particular technological applications. Thus, the selected methods are master classes, guided work by means of learning based upon projects, simulations and numerical applications, tutoring and student independent work. This methodology is currently been applied within the Mechanical Engineer Degree...

[EN] This paper aims to analyze and compare the accreditation systems of people applying to higher education professionals independently of the area of accreditation to which they belong. To do this, we will analyze five certification systems: Project Management Institute (PMI), Registration and Certification Center of People (CERPER), General Council of Industrial Engineering (COGITI), Association of Naval Architects and Ocean (COIN) and National Qualifications Authority (INCUAL) based on eleven indicators derived from the study of different sources of information. This comparative allows us to analyze and evidence the similarities and differences of existing accreditation systems of people.

[EN] The objective is to understand how information and service quality to influence of IT enabled service (ITeS), then to enhance service delivery innovation (SDI). This study bases ITeS to elaborate two research questions by adopting Rodosek’s business reference model. Consequently, we conduct a case study approach, by deriving proposals concerning the relationships among two quality perspectives, ITeS, and SDI in a Taiwanese publishing company. In the end, we concluded three related findings. Firstly, the company based on service orientated to provide basic service functions to encourage more users to enjoy their services, as well as facilitating collaborative work via...

[EN] The design and implementation of different Project Based Learning (PBL) approaches are presented in this paper. All of them were carried out in the framework of the MSc degree in Electronic Systems for Smart Environments from the University of Malaga. Four subjects were developed using different values of the three main parameters of PBL: teamwork, self-guided learning and project complexity. During two academic years, several indicators were used to evaluate these experiences: compliance with subject time schedules, scores obtained for the students, interaction of each student in his team and satisfaction of students with the experiences. Our results encourage...

[EN] In this paper, we describe some activities that have been developed to written and oral skills in students of Degree in Electrical and Electronics Engineering in the School of Industrial Engineering in Toledo. Among these activities, we have designed a workshop, included in welcome activities of the school for first year students and two learning activities included in chemistry module. In the workshop, we explained the key points to consider when an oral or written presentation is prepared. Moreover, we tried to make conscious to our students of the importance of the development of written and oral skills. In...

[EN] The student who access the University understands a curve as a function represented by an equality involving the Cartesian variables x and y. But he does not know another great set of curves such as those described by parametric equations and polar coordinates. We show an experience developed in two consecutive courses in the first course of a bachelor's degree, which allows the students to discover and create many curves in parametric or polar representation, working in group. Also the experience facilitate the students to achieve several generic skills.
