4th International Conference on Higher Education Learning Methodologies and Technologies Online
September 21-23, 2022
Online universities are widespread today, but distance learning solutions are lately becoming more and more popular also in traditional universities. Researchers and academics involved in online teaching are growing in number and research activities on the design of online courses, teaching methodologies, and the assessment in digital learning environments are undergoing a marked increase, and they will become more and more fundamental in the near future. On one hand, online learning methodologies have reached maturity in terms of theoretical framework and interpretation of the research field outcomes. On the other hand, the exploitation and analysis of educational data, even big data, are becoming a fundamental prerequisite for supporting strategic decisions in several contexts, such as predicting dropouts and improving student experience and success rate.
The HELMeTO Conference aims at bringing together researchers and practitioners working in Higher Distance Education Institutions or studying Online Learning Methodologies to present and share their research in a multidisciplinary context.
The conference provides a forum for the discussion of new research directions and applications in these fields, where different disciplines could effectively meet.
The First HELMeTO workshop edition was organized by eCampus University 2019 and was held in Novedrate (CO), Italy, on June 6-7, 2019. The post-proceedings Book is available here. The Second HELMeTO edition was organized by the University of Bari, and was successfully held in online mode on September 17-18, 2020. The post-proceedings Book can be found here. In 2021, the Department of Information Engineering of the University of Pisa has organized the third edition of HELMeTO that has been held online cause of the pandemic on September 9-10, 2021.
The 4th HELMeTO conference edition is organized by the Department of Mathematics and Computer Science of the University of Palermo and the Institute for Educational Technology – National Research Council of Italy. The event is planned to be organized on-site in Palermo. However, the HELMeTO organizers will monitor the pandemic evolution considering switching the event to online mode.
HELMeTO 2022 is scientifically sponsored by the University of Palermo, the Institute for Education Technologies – National Research Council of Italy, and SIREM – Società Italiana di Ricerca sull’Educazione Mediale. The post-proceedings will be published in Springer Communication in Computer and Information Science book series.
