Ninth International Conference on Information Technology Based Higher Education and Training -ITHET 2010, by UNESCO Chair on Mechatronics, Bogazici University, Turkey, 29 April to 1 May

Virtual environments, e-training and e-learning will be some of the topics covered at the ITHET 2010 to be held in Cappadoccia, Turkey from April 29 to 1 May. The conference will bring together experts to discuss the current state of the art for learning both in industry and universities.

The convergence of current technologies provides the infrastructure for transmitting and sharing information faster and cheaper.

However for information to be used to gain knowledge, environments for collecting, storing, disseminating, sharing and constructing knowledge are needed.

Such environments, knowledge media, bring together the telecommunication, computer and networking technologies, learning theories and cognitive sciences.

The web is one such technology that provides access to valuable educational resources such as e-mail, e-groups, bulletin board services, audio conferencing, video conferencing, e-journals, search engines and databases.

It is also used to deliver online instruction or support conventional courses. Effective delivery of this type of instruction must be fast and timely and cater to students, academic, administrative and support needs.

Prof. Dr. Okyay Kaynak, UNESCO Chairholder
