Speech Title: Next Generation e-Learning Platform for Learning Activity Design
Abstract:The paradigm of education is changing from instruction based on content delivery to learning which emphasizes learner's participation and activities. It implies that learning will be shifted to the direction of supporting and promoting learning activities of learners. For instance, various learning activities in MOOCs are available via the design and management of exercises, assignments, exams, etc., which makes them exceed the level of OCW having the function of sharing learning materials. In recent years, e-learning platforms have been emphasized as a more macroscopic form including contents management systems as well as learning activities. This speech will present the following results in the viewpoint of e-learning platform for learning design activities. First, previous literatures about e-learning/MOOC platforms, LMS functions, and e-learning solutions were reviewed to derive overall features of the next generation e-learning platform. Second, case analysis of MOOC and platform reflecting conceptual characteristics of learning design were conducted. By analyzing Blackboard, Moodle, and Canvas that have been the most actively utilized in the colleges, the main functions and features were identified. Finally, the selective e-learning platform functions for learning design have been derived, and future directions will be discussed.

Speech Title: Design of an Efficient Authentication Framework over Heterogeneous Vehicular Networks
Abstract: Recently, the use of 4G wireless network to support vehicular applications has attracted more and more research attentions. Although some applications have been proposed to support traffic safety and transportation efficiency using Long Term Evolution (LTE) techniques, the security issues of the integration of LTE into the vehicular environments have been less addressed. In this talk, I will address the security issues of the VANETs with an introduction of a security framework over public transport based heterogeneous wireless vehicular networks to face the challenges of malicious attacks in vehicular environments efficiently. The security of the proposed solution has been analysed and the logic correctness of the proposed solution has been proved by formal logic. Besides, performance evaluation shows that the proposed authentication framework can efficiently reduce authentication time and number of hops during message relay by sharing key information.
Keynote Speaker III
