Internet crime has changed markedly in the past four years. Professional Internet criminals are replacing the hacker vandal as the chief security concern. Phishing and advance fee frauds result in losses of up to a billion dollars a year. This tutorial will cover: professional Internet crimes, the tactics used by the criminals, the non-linear nature of Internet crime, mitigation strategies, and initiatives to improve Internet infrastructure to defeat these new attacks. The objective is for the attendee to be able to predict which aspects of their Internet/Web business are vulnerable to Internet crime and strategies that can help minimize the risk of being targetted.
This tutorial will instruct the audience inÂ the motivation for Web Services and Service Oriented Architecture (SOA),Â how standardized technologies are composable into SOA, and in ongoing efforts along with future developments under consideration to continue making the promise of Web Services and SOA a reality.
This full-day tutorial draws on previous experiences of two EU-funded projects (distance education and intercultural learning over the Internet), a distance education programme delivered to eight locations in five countries from Europe, Asia and Africa, the coordination of a 16-partner think-tank consortium for the study of cognitive systems and the international workshop on e-Learning Online Communities.
Both in EU and the US we are witnessing an attempt for the simultaneous development of courses and learning materials specifically designed for global students alongside the e-learning technologies and pedagogical tools required to support them. The benefits of these efforts primarily result in the professional development of e-learning practitioners and researchers including designers of courses, developers of learning content, tutors and trainers involved in distance education, programme administrators, and managing personnel of institutions teaching overseas.
E-learning developers, trainers, tutors and managers, aim on advancing their e-tutor skills as their role is crucial in facilitating distance learners undertaking bilateral online programmes internationally. This enables such e-learning professionals to provide competent support of students through a variety of e-services and web applications.
Furthermore, diversity management skills are highly needed for improving mutual learning, trust and confidentiality. Cultural awareness is needed to provide better market opportunities, for fostering the competitiveness of content and language players on the global network. In the European Unionâ€™s rich cultural diversity, values, attitudes and beliefs vary so much as to cause problems without proper intercultural and multicultural awareness. Worldwide, there is a great need for citizens to have a better understanding of the level of their own intercultural and multicultural competence.
The ICT evolution of the past two decades leading to the proliferation of the World Wide Web was the primary factor for Online Communities to transform from a social interaction medium to virtual environments with commercial value. The increased popularity of Online Communities triggered the diversification of the community building process depending on those aspects forming the core of a community and enticing Internet users to become members; hence the birth of online communities focusing on education. Currently several institutions have created e-Learning Online Communities and there is early evidence of their future success.
