An improved wheel carriage or truck assembly for skateboards and the like. The wheel carriage comprises a pivot arm which carries an axle and wheels near one end thereof. The opposite end is mounted to the bottom of the board for pivotal movement against a shock absorber in a vertical plane which includes the axis of the shock absorber. The pivot arm is mounted for pivotal movement about its axis for pivoting the wheels in a horizontal plane against the biasing action of the shock absorber. This...

Good computer and video games like System Shock 2, Deus Ex, Pikmin, Rise of Nations, Neverwinter Nights, and Xenosaga: Episode 1 are learning machines. They get themselves learned and learned well, so that they get played long and hard by a great many people. This is how they and their designers survive and perpetuate themselves. If a game cannot be learned and even mastered at a certain level, it won't get played by enough people, and the company that makes it will go broke. Good learning in ga...

We live in an historical period in which knowledge is the most critical resource for social and economic development and people need to be able to participate in a networked, information-based society. Whereas previously people engaged in manufacturing-based work where they generally competed with or worked independently of each other, now people engage in informationand technological-rich work where they work in teams. People need to be able to work collaboratively in designing, using, and main...

The aim of this study is to empirically investigate the relationships between communication styles, social networks, and learning performance in a computer-supported collaborative learning (CSCL) community. Using social network analysis (SNA) and longitudinal survey data, we analyzed how 31 distributed learners developed collaborative learning social networks, when they had work together on the design of aerospace systems using online collaboration tools. The results showed that both individual ...

Wikis are one of many Web 2.0 components that can be used to enhance the learning process. A wiki is a web communication and collaboration tool that can be used to engage students in learning with others within a collaborative environment. This paper explains wiki usage, investigates its contribution to various learning paradigms, examines the current literature on wiki use in education, and suggests additional uses in teaching software engineering.

The adoption of Course Management Systems (CMSs) for web-based instruction continues to increase in today’s higher education. A CMS is a software program or integrated platform that contains a series of web-based tools to support a number of activities and course management procedures (Severson, 2004). Examples of Course Management Systems are Blackboard, WebCT, eCollege, Moodle, Desire2Learn, Angel, etc. An argument for the adoption of elearning environments using CMSs is the flexibility of suc...

This paper is based on Masters’ dissertation submitted to Vaal University of Technology, which investigated messaging service applications as an educational supporting tool. The use of social media applications to support learning is fairly new in most Higher education institutions in South Africa. The more technology contributions are embraced, it is fundamental that the education system takes advantage of incorporating technology in teaching and learning. This research paper investigates messa...

Abstract Much of human learning emerges as a result of interaction with others. Yet, this interpersonal process has been poorly characterized from a neurophysiological perspective. This study investigated (i) whether Interpersonal Brain Synchronization (IBS) can reliably mark social interactive learning, and specifically (ii) during what kind of interactive behavior. We recorded brain activity from learner-instructor dyads using functional Near-Infrared Spectroscopy (fNIRS) during the acquisitio...

Abstract The use of Technology to facilitate better learning and training is gaining momentum worldwide, reducing the temporal and spatial problems associated with traditional learning. Despite its several benefits, retaining students in online platforms is challenging. Through a literature review of the factors affecting adoption, the continuation of technology use, and learning outcomes, this paper discusses an integration of online learning with virtual communities to foster student engagemen...
