561. System for publicly accessible Register of educational, cultural and health-care institutions

ICIST 2013 Proceedings, 264-269
Zarić Miroslav, Penca Valentin, Paroški Milan, Bulatović Rajko
Abstract: A comprehensive Register of institutions in the fields of culture, education and health is an essential tool for policy and decision making in those fields. Institution can be either completely or partially owned and financed by local, provincial or state government. Therefore, those governmental levels can have various responsibilities in the process of decision making regarding further development, financing and planning in those institutions. In order to successfully perform their duties and exercise their rights in governing those institutions, comprehensive and up-to-date information about those institutions must be available. Appropriate form for storing potentially large amounts of data about those institutions is to build a specialized registry. By opening parts of such a registry to public access, the level of e-government service that local, provincial and state government is providing to citizens can be largely improved. Such an open access can be beneficiary to both citizens as well as professionals in those fields. This paper presents a pilot project of such a registry, developed for Provincial Government of Autonomous Province of Vojvodina. This paper presents overall data model necessary to support such a registry, as well as an implementation of one specialized registry - Registry of health institutions. The presented implementation is entirely based on open source software systems.
Abstract: Quality of Health Care has been significantly improved through advancement of medical technologies by enabling health professionals to diagnose diseases more rapidly and accurately, patients to recover sooner and with improved quality of life, health care providers to be more efficient and increase economic productivity and control costsIn order to benefit from unprecedented technology advancement in health care, it is important to additionally focus on organizational factors, workflow redesign and human factor issues. Structural design and culture of the organization need to be associated with the predominant national culture. Several literature findings indicate that harmonious alignment of organizational and national culture support organizational learning that promote effective utilization of the new technology. Authors are presenting a case study designed to explore appropriate methodology for sustainable implementation of Health Care technology projects in Serbia., with special attention to analysis of particular dimensions of national culture correlated with organizational culture and structure.

563. Measuring efficiency of formally represented instructional strategies

ICIST 2013 Proceedings, 274-279
Savić Goran, Segedinac Milan, Kovačević Aleksandar, Konjović Zora
Abstract: This paper deals with comparing the efficiency of guided and unguided learning using formal representation of an instructional strategy. Strategies were formally represented with ELIDL – an XML-based language specially designed for this purpose. Three instructional strategies were defined. Two of them, named worked-out examples and process-worksheets, represent guided learning, while the third one represents unguided learning. The efficiency of the strategies was evaluated on the course “Numerical algorithms and numerical software in engineering” held at the Faculty of Technical Sciences at University of Novi Sad. A sample of 81 students was divided into three groups, where each group was given the course created according to different instructional strategy. The results show that the most efficient instructional strategy is process-worksheets strategy.

564. IEEE RCD standard based ontological modeling of computer science curriculum

ICIST 2013 Proceedings, 280-285
Mandić Milinko, Segedinac Milan, Savić Goran, Konjović Zora
Abstract: The paper presents modeling of Computer Science curriculum based on ontologies. The main concept of the proposed ontological model is the competence defined by IEEE RCD standard. Mapping of the IEEE RCD data model to ontological model is described in detail. ACM Computing classification is used for domain knowledge modeling. Protégé tool is used for designing ontologies.

565. Implementation of Mobile Application for the Needs of the Integrated Learning System

ICIST 2013 Proceedings, 286-289
Čović Zlatko, Ivković Miodrag, Radulović Biljana
Abstract: This paper describes the implementation of the native mobile application for Android operating system. Realized application is the aid for learning and testing process of the users in the integrated learning system. Components of this eco system are presented with an emphasis on mobile application. Plans for future development are given.

566. Quality assurance of e-learning through improvement of teaching materials

ICIST 2013 Proceedings, 290-293
Ružičić Vesna, Blagojević Marija
Abstract: The current trend in education is towards flexible and creative institutions that are capable of sustained change and development. E-learning plays an important role in the process of accessing, collecting, analyzing and transforming information and knowledge. The greatest contribution has to do with bettering both the teaching staff and the students and raising the process of education to a higher level. The quality of teaching and the system for managing the process of learning is likewise improved. The primary aim of E-learning is to enhance the quality of contribution to a particular organization, i.e. an educational institution. The research testifies to the importance of E-learning, as well as the quality of instructional content, and the results have been obtained by means of a survey conducted among students who use the learning management system. The teaching materials which are posted on the learning management system, as well as the activities through which students acquire knowledge, have been clearly outlined in the paper. A suggestion as to how to improve certain materials in order to enhance the quality of knowledge has also been offered on the basis of the results obtained in the survey.

567. Burnout effect: simulation modelling approach for learning

ICIST 2013 Proceedings, 294-299
Pejić Bach Mirjana, Zoroja Jovana, Merkač Skok Marjana
Abstract: Modern society is a fast-moving, achievement-oriented, very competitive and lead to many stressful situations, which individuals cannot handle always. The consequence of that state is burnout effect. We propose usage of system dynamics methodology in exploration of burnout effect. Several experiments have been conducted and presented which indicate increase and collapse behaviour in case of burnout experience by the individual.

568. Use of computerized adaptive testing in corporate e-learning

ICIST 2013 Proceedings, 300-303
Kačapor Kemal, Milanov Dušanka
Abstract: This paper will describe the potential of computerized adaptive testing, as a part of E-learning, within a corporate context. The success of any organization today is more and more dependent on the quality of the people they are able to attract, recruit and retain and employee value is essential for competitive market environment. Adaptive tests are designed to maximize measurement efficiency, or the precision of test scores in relation to test length. Therefore, the potential of computerized adaptive testing in determining employees knowledge and skills development, which are vital in any organization, is going to be presented and analyzed
