Department of Computer Science, University of West Georgia, Carrollton, Georgia, USA

Abstract – This poster addresses the ways in which transitioning a face-to-face graduate program in applied computer science to a 100% online program, where online education via e-learning is fully utilized and embraced, can function as a catalyst for enhancing and strengthening the long-term viability of the program; the ability to more effectively market the program to a wider population of potential students; and also encourage innovation in curriculum and pedagogy.

Keywords: Online education; e-learning; computer science education; graduate education

Novel Design Approach to Build Audit Rule Ontology for

Healthcare Decision Support Systems

Numanul Subhani, Robert Kent

University of Windsor, Windsor, Ontario, Canada

Abstract— Continuous Auditing (CA) has been investigated over time and it is, somewhat, in practice within financial and transactional auditing as a part of continuous assurance and monitoring. Enterprise Information Systems that run their activities in the form of processes require continuous auditing of a process that invokes the action(s) specified in the policies and rules in a continuous manner. A shared vocabulary, or common ontology, defines the processes and the audit rule ontology for processes or modules are integrated to form a hybrid ontology that supports the acquisition and evolution of ontologies. In this paper, we propose a methodology to construct a Healthcare Common Ontology by coupling to an expert system. We also propose a direction to generate an audit rule ontology of a process or module from defined rules for the purpose of Continuous Process

Abstract. E-portfolio management systems assume very high importance to universities as a means of evidence-based assessment of student work. With the availability of lot of open source e-portfolio tools, a great deal of work can be done to customize these to very specific needs. The goal of this project is to automate an E-portfolio review process using a conference paper style collaborative review workflow. Mahara is an open source e-Portfolio and social networking web application which has been used for this purpose.

This study aims at highlighting the role of technology in the growth of education.

for an outcome reviews and evaluates the respective portfolio against the outcome.

Abstract— The main purpose of this research was to gain an understanding of the adoption behavior of mobile computing in

Saudi Arabia. In particular, it aimed to acquire new insight into mobile computing trends in Saudi Arabia, in order to develop hypotheses and formulate precise criteria for mobile computing evaluation. In order to achieve these aims, a focus group was created through the recruiting of eight participants with solid background knowledge of usability engineering and mobile computing. The focus group proposed a four-phase process: determination, qualification, categorization and evaluation of the mobile computing applications developed by Saudi organizations.
