WBE 2007 will take place from March 17 - 19, 2008.
Innsbruck is nestled in the valley of the Inn River and tucked between the Austrian Alps and the Tuxer mountain range. It has twice hosted the Winter Olympics and is surrounded by the eight ski regions of the Olympic Ski World, including the Stubai Glacier, which offers skiing year round. Climbing the 14th century Stadtturm on Herzog Friedrich Strasse provides a stunning view of the town and the breathtaking scenery that surrounds it. Concerts at Ambras Castle provide listening pleasure in a beautiful renaissance setting. The sturdy medieval houses and sidewalk cafés of Old Town Innsbruck beckon you to sit for a while and watch people stroll by.
As keyboards replace chalkboards, the Web's impact on traditional educational theories and practices are increasingly apparent. It has transformed and expanded the conventional boundaries of education. New innovations such as virtual colleges, laboratories, and universities are creating an abundance of additional areas of study surrounding this innovation. These include innovative hardware and software technology, online testing and assessment, training and teaching applications, and courseware design and development.
WBE 2008 is aimed to provide scholars, faculty, researchers, and administrators in all web-based educational areas with an excellent opportunity to convene with colleagues from approximately 50 countries to discuss innovative ideas, results, and outcomes of research in this new and exciting field.
WBE 2008 is sponsored by the International Association of Science and Technology for Development (IASTED), with the assistance of:
Technical Committee on Education
