The Second ACM International Workshop on Multimedia Technologies for Distance Leaning (MTDL 2010) – Firenze, Italy

Multimedia technologies and networking infrastructure have changed human social behavior. One typical example is education. The impact of distance learning to traditional universities in particular allows educational professionals to rethink about how to efficiently and effectively using multimedia technologies to improve instruction, as well as to encourage students to learn. Although multimedia technologies have already been used widely in e-learning, various considerations should be carefully addressed from both pedagogical and technological perspectives, to ensure the successful incorporation of these technologies in e-learning.

This ACM workshop aims to discuss problems, current studies, and solutions in how to use multimedia and communication technologies to improve e-learning. Especially, presentations should address the difference between using and without using multimedia technologies in education. Practical solutions are encouraged, although pedagogical theories may be used to support the solutions.
