    The landscape of teaching and learning has changed in recent years because of the application of Information and Communications technology. Among the most representative innovations in this regard are Learning Management Systems. Despite of their popularity in institutional contexts and the wide set of tools and services that they provide to learners and teachers, they present several issues. Learning Management Systems are linked to an institution and a period of time, and are not adapted to learners' needs. In order to address these problems Personal Learning Environments are defined, but it is clear that these will not replace Learning Management Systems and other institutional contexts. Both types of environment should therefore coexist and interact. This paper presents a service-based framework to facilitate such interoperability. It supports the export of functionalities from the institutional to the personal environment and also the integration within the institution of learning outcomes from personal activities. In order to achieve this in a flexible, extensible and open way, web services and interoperability specifications are used. In addition some interoperability scenarios are posed. The framework has been tested in real learning contexts and the results show that interoperability is possible, and that it benefits learners, teachers and institutions.

    Free Libre Open Source Software (FLOSS) is registering an important rise in popularity and has become a strong asset in software development. Due to their nature, FLOSS projects depend heavily on their community. A strong open source community behind a project provides certain guarantees for the project¿s quality and survivability. It is for this reason that so many FLOSS teams have as a priority the creation of healthy communities around their projects. This paper aims to present the efforts and experiences of the small team behind Moodbile: Mobile Learning for Moodle (www.moodbile.org), to create such a community that will help support the project and actively aid in its evolution. We present the steps taken thus far, their potential risks, their outcomes and the plans for the future as we strive to achieve critical mass for the community.

    Lately, genealogy has been becoming a new popular activity and has increasing interest due to the easy access to heritage documentation on internet and digital documentation. The main interesting information sources for genealogy research are different kinds of genealogical documents (census, church vital records, wills, ¿). In Spain, several projects to digitalize heritage and genealogical documentation have developed recently, in order to improve its access and to preserve its conservation state. Such digital information is useful, but it would be even more useful to have its transcription in a persistent and searchable support like databases or web repositories. However, there not exist any standard proposal of what must be the contents of these database repositories. In this paper the authors describe main characteristics of a tool to support the transcription process of genealogical documentation. This tool allows for easy, intuitive and fast transcription of genealogical documentation, in agreement with the contents of each different kind of genealogical documents. Given an model describing a genealogical document structure and contents, our tool supports the user to transcribe the document contents. The authors also propose a conceptual schema to model and to describe, in a generic and uniform way, the main contents of such genealogical documentation of interest for genealogy and family history research. This model should be a first step to have a reference model to describe heritage documents, to facilitate the transcription process and to share transcribed data among different researchers and databases.

    The TRAILER Project is an EU funded project in the Life Long Learning program. The project aims to provide a framework for recognition, tagging and acknowledgement of Informal learning activities. Within the scope of this project, a piece of software called Informal learning Collector (ILC) has been developed to act as a binding between informal PLE's and a learning Portfolio. This paper presents an enhancement to the ILC that changes turns it into an active component that pulls data instead of being pushed explicitly by the user.

    We have reached a point where mostly all Learning Management Systems provide a mature stable virtual extension or emulation of the classroom environment, well integrated with the back office and academic curriculum management. However, technology moves fast and society is keeping a good pace behind it. Smartphones and tablets have rendered obsolete the computer labs or computerized classrooms in less than 3 years since the launch of the first iPad. App Stores in all platforms - mobile, desktop and web based-have provided ecosystems where developers of all kinds are innovating fast, creating new kinds of apps and services and iterating over new ways managing, sharing and discovering information and knowledge of all sorts. Some of this innovation is focused towards learning, and it is happening outside the Learning Management Systems and the classroom itself.

    There is a recent interest in the research of Lifelong Learning and other related kinds of learning (formal, non-formal and informal). Some projects have been held in order to propose frameworks for managing all these types of learning, giving special attention to the informal learning. The TRAILER project is one of them. It supports the identification and management of informal learning activities. It gathers informal learning activities with an Informal Learning Collector (ILC) and a Portfolio is used to make visible how much a learner acquires informal learning. The main way for registering informal learning activities data into the ILC is using push mechanisms where the users explicitly introduce such information. In this paper, we propose an alternative way to register information about informal learning activities, but using a pull mechanism, where the ILC collects data from external applications. In this sense, we improve ILC usability.

    Learning Management Systems (LMS) have become widespread among most centres for education and training. Being a mature technology, LMS have left the vanguard of innovation. Educational usages of the Web 2.0, Personal Learning Environments, Game-based Learning and particularly the introduction of mobile phones and tablets in education are happening outside the boundaries of the LMS. This paper proposes a way to integrate mobile devices and educational applications with the LMS through webservices; introducing the Moodbile project that provides an extension of Moodle 2.0 webservices for mobile integration and two mobile clients ready to use on real courses.

    The application of the Information and Communications Technology to teaching and learning processes implies a revolution in the tools employed to carry out learning activities. Especially the learning platforms are one of most relevant tools; they provide services both for teachers and students to facilitate their work. However, such platforms are mostly focused on the course and the institution and no so much in the specific needs of the user. This means that other kind of environments are needed, the personal learning environments. Institutional learning platforms and personal learning environments coexist, so they should interoperate between them. In this work a framework approach is proposed. It uses using web services and interoperability specifications facilitate such integration. The architecture provides the functionalities to make possible that institutional functionalities were exported to personalized environments and the activity that is carried out in them can be tracked from the institutional environment. With this approach it is possible to show that interoperability between this two contexts is possible and it can improve the learning and teaching processes.

    The automated processing, storing and knowledge inference of genealogical data presents several difficulties. Roughly eighteen years ago, the FamilySearch organization published GEDCOM, a new standard file format to allow genealogy software and tools to exchange genealogical data. Five years later, the GENTECH Data Modeling Project, proposed a new genealogical logic data model to support research in genealogy and to allow data inter-exchange between genealogy software. Despite being initial reference models, they still have some limitations to adapt to different cultural and social environments. Additionally, sharing genealogical data between systems is difficult since, even though they are syntactical reference models, they may have semantic mismatches. Today, we have not a common and unified proposal as a standard recognized genealogical model. In this way, in this paper we propose to consider the ontology paradigm to extend expressiveness of concepts and relationships in such standards.

    Most Educational Institutions worldwide have deployed web based Learning Management Systems (LMS) as a means to provide support for their presence-based lectures and offer online-exclusive learning. These LMSs were designed and developed for users accessing the system through web browsers on desktop computers or laptops. However, over the last years, an increasing percentage of the registered accesses to various LMS platforms have been from mobile devices such as smartphones. While tackling the problems arising through the design of a mobile client for the Open Source LMS Moodle called Moodbile, the question of how to decide which services of Moodle could be accessed from smartphones became very relevant. This paper presents a data analysis study conducted on the Moodle server logs of the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya - Barcelona Tech (UPC) virtual campus, Atenea, and the insight gained regarding the particular characteristics of the accesses from mobile devices. The main achievement of this study is that it provides insight of the use of the university LMS from mobile devices.

    The Moodle 2.0 Web Services architecture has been designed to optimize bulk operations or administrative tasks. Therefore, it does not support external applications accessing activity modules. For this reason, the Moodbile project aims to provide an extension of the Moodle 2.0 Web Services architecture in order to provide access to external applications such as m-learning applications, from within Moodle. To validate this extension, three m-learning applications have been developed: an HTML5 client that may be used from most mobile browsers, an Android-native app and an iOS-native app.

    La aplicación de las Tecnologías de la Información y la Comunicación al aprendizaje proporciona una revolución en el soporte que se utiliza para aprender y enseñar. En especial una de las herramientas más significativas son las plataformas de aprendizaje, que facilitan servicios tanto a profesores como estudiantes para realizar esta tarea. Sin embargo estas plataformas están muy centradas en el curso y la institución y no en las necesidades específicas del usuario y en el aprendizaje a lo largo de la vida. Esto supone que sean necesarios otro tipo de entornos, los entornos personalizados de aprendizaje. Plataformas institucionales y entornos personalizados van a coexistir y eso supone que tengan que interoperar entre sí. En este trabajo se propone la definición e implementación de una arquitectura que, mediante el uso de servicios web y especificaciones de interoperabilidad facilite esa integración. Dicha arquitectura facilita que las funcionalidades de los entornos instituciones sean exportados a entornos personalizados y que la actividad que en ellos se lleva a cabo se refleje en el entorno institucional. De esta forma se va a poder demostrar que la interoperabilidad entre ambos contextos es posible y favorece los procesos de enseñanza/aprendizaje.

    Learners and teachers use different tools to carry out the learning activities. These instruments evolve and change, what means that learning activities are being influenced depending of the context that surrounds the educational processes. The Information and Communication Technologies application to teaching and learning processes implies a revolution regarding to the way learning and teaching is performed. However this model did not provide as many advantages as it were supposed to and a new change is necessary. Against this background rise web 2.0 tools and tendencies, which is another evolution on the way learners and teachers interact but those tools should be incorporated and adapted to the existing systems. This is not an easy task and means to take into account the users, the tools, the interoperability between learning tools, etc. Along this paper the problem of how to integrate 2.0 tools into institutional learning system is explored, specially focused on how through PLE and by using interoperability solutions it is possible to take advantage of 2.0 tools in learning and teaching processes. It is proposed a simply way to integrate such tools with the existing systems and an experience that demonstrate how to apply it. This experience is based on the use of twitter in a classroom. From that experience can be shown that the integration of 2.0 tools is not complex and improves students’ participation and motivation, which could have associated a learning improvement.

    Learning Management Systems (LMS) are widespread among most education and training institutions. Even though LMS are a mature technology, they have left the vanguard of innovation in e-learning to mobile devices and tablets. Mobile Learning (M-learning)may enhance e-learning by increasing communication and conversation opportunities to convents the learning process more collaborative and learner-centred. This paper describes a way to integrate mobile devices and educational applications with a LMS as Moodle through web services: The Moodbile Project. Rather than just creating mobile apps that replicates LMS functionalities on a mobile device, Moodbile provides to m-learning developers with the necessary tools to allow mobile devices to interact with the LMS. In this paper, we describe our proposal of an open specification of web services to support the integration of mobile external applications with Moodle.

    Agent-oriented models are frequently used in disciplines such as agent-oriented requirements engineering, requirements engineering and organizational process modelling. i* is currently one of the most widespread notations used for this purpose. Due to both its dissemination and its highly strategic nature, instead of a single definition, several groups have formulated different variants, which define in a slightly different way the basic concepts of the language, as well as propose particular constructs that fit into the particular interests of these groups. In this chapter we first review these proposals and then we present a reference model that establishes the concepts and relationships that are fundamental in i*. The reference model is expressed as a UML class diagram (with OCL constraints) together with a vocabulary of the presented terms. Most of the included concepts are common to the seminal i* proposal, the GRL and the diverse variations used in the context of the Tropos methodology. For those concepts that are not shared by these analysed variants, the reference model tries to reconcile the different views whenever possible. The reference model allows determining the differences of any existing i* variant with respect to the model, and also to know how much different a new variant would be from the core of i*. The variants can be expressed by applying some refactoring operations on the UML class diagram. We illustrate this situation by applying refactoring to some of the analysed proposals.

    Commercial Off-The-Shelf (COTS) components selection is an activity that plays an increasingly crucial role in the delivery of software systems. We are using i*, specially Strategic Dependency models, for driving this activity. Software domains are modeled as actors, and the relationships among them and with external actors (people, other software systems, organizations, etc.) are represented using the concept of dependency. While providing some satisfactory findings, our proposal has also given light to some interesting questions that we have tackled or are still dealing with, remarkably: Which are the foundations of COTS components selection? Which are the properties of interest when selecting COTS components and how do we formalize them? How do we build i* models in a consistent way? What is the precise meaning of the i* constructs that we use in our models? How do we organize the knowledge about the marketplace and how do we use this knowledge during selection? What type of tool-support is appropriate? In this chapter, we present our current state of research in the COTS components selection area and provide some partial answers to the questions above.

    Lately, genealogy has become a hobby not only in the United States, UK or France but also in many other countries where it is now widespread. The main sources of information for genealogists are different kinds of genealogical documents (census, church vital records, wills, …). In fact, and specifically in Spain, several projects to digitalize heritage and genealogical documentation have developed recently, in order to improve its access and to preserve its conservation state. Such digital information is useful, but it would be even more useful to have its transcription in a searchable support like databases or web repositories. This chapter analyses the opportunities and characteristics of such transcription projects and describes a transcription user interface tool. This proposal allows for easy, intuitive and fast design of a user interface to transcript genealogical documentation, in agreement with the contents of each different kind of genealogical documents. Given an XML Schema (XSD) describing a genealogical document structure and contents, this tool allows the user to adapt and personalize a user interface to transcribe the document contents, while obtaining an XML file to be stored in some database management system or to be shared among genealogists. At any moment during the transcription process, user interface may be adapted to the user requirements and to the document characteristics, so, this adaption is dynamic, intuitive and user friendly.

    Con el objetivo de dar soporte a las asignaturas que conllevan la realización de prácticas o pequeños proyectos y a los Proyectos de Fin de Carrera, se ha llevado a cabo un proyecto de innovación docente que integra la plataforma de soporte a la docencia Moodle con Trac, un gestor de proyectos potente, sencillo y flexible. Los estudiantes esta habituados al uso de Moodle para realizar actividades colaborativas en algunas asignaturas, pero no tienen un soporte especifico para la planificación, asignación y seguimiento de tareas. Con esta integración, se enmarcan los proyectos gestionados por Trac dentro del contexto de un curso de Moodle. En este artículo se describe dicha integración y la aplicación del sistema combinado Moodle- Trac en la docencia en este tipo de asignaturas.

    Customer Relationship Management (CRM) systems have gained notoriety over the beginning of this century. The increasing competitive levels of many businesses have propelled the extensive procurement, implementation and use of this kind of packaged software for many enterprises within many industries. Currently, in order to know how CRM systems have been implemented in such enterprises, academic researches have focused on conducting case studies in a varied set of organizations within several industries. The experiences and situations presented and analyzed in these documents may contribute greatly to CRM literature as well as to CRM implementation knowledge. In this paper an analysis of such case studies from an organizational perspective is undertaken. From such analysis a specific vision is drawn of which organizational factors appear, and how relevant they are, in the specific context of CRM systems implementation projects.

    Los sistemas SCM son una herramienta importante para muchas empresas en la racionalización y coordinación de sus cadenas de suministros. Pero hasta el momento no existen métodos públicos de implantación de estos sistemas SCM que permitan aminorar los riesgos en este tipo de proyectos. En este artículo concebimos dichos proyectos como servicios que podrían mejorar si se abordasen metodológicamente e ilustramos cómo nos hemos basado en el estándar SEMDM para formalizar y denominar los elementos básicos de nuestro futuro método de implantación de sistemas SCM.

    Nowadays, many enterprises must go through the integration of their heterogeneous information systems, an endeavour in which one of the main activities is semantic integration. In fact, the semantic integration process, implicit or explicitly handled, is a central piece within any Enterprise Information System integration project. This paper presents, discusses and locates semantic integration issues within the context of the phases, processes and tasks of a recently introduced Enterprise Information Systems integration method. In this way, the method, that we have developed based on practical experience and by following the method engineering ontology set up by the new ISO/IEC 24744 standard, is extended with the explicit consideration of semantic integration. However, rather than addressing in-depth semantic integration issues, in this paper we provide a contextualization and analysis for it within enterprise IS integration projects in general, and in particular we propose their consideration and location in our own method. Moreover, we also identify and propose methodological elements to facilitate continuous learning along the complete life cycle of our method, and of Enterprise Information Systems projects in general.
