The International Conference on e-Education (ICeE 2014) is the premier gathering for the presentation of new advances and research results in the field of applying modern technologies in education. Education is one domain that has accompanied civilization throughout the centuries, adapting its tools to fulfill the expectations of students and the needs of teachers. Typical in-person learning environments, such as classrooms and meeting rooms, are at times not the best solution to enable and maximize a student’s ability to learn. Although they do fulfill their purpose of giving students the opportunity to understanding course material and reaching their instructors, they sometimes can create barriers that cannot be easily overcome.
Web-based instruction and multi-user virtual environments allow more freedom in terms of time restraints and the physical limitations innate to typical lectures and classroom settings. Through these innovative mediums we can explore concepts while being a part of a learning community through socialization and collaboration online.
ICeE 2014 is organized by the Faculty of Information Technologies of “Džemal Bijedić” University in Mostar aiming to gather the most important research results in the field of application of modern information and communication technologies in education.
Faculty of Information Technologies in collaboration with universities in Lleida, Spain (Universitat de Lleida - http://www.udl.cat) and the University of Paderborn, Germany (Universität Paderborn - http://www.uni-paderborn.de), has held four international conferences in the field of information technology:
