ELCMM: An e-learning capability maturity model (2017)
Presentation / Conference
Hammad, R., Odeh, M., & Khan, Z. (2017, April). ELCMM: An e-learning capability maturity model. Paper presented at The 15th International Conference on e-Society

The widespread applications of e-learning or technology-enhanced learning in academic institutions have led to a huge escalation in the development of e-learning evaluation models. Such models are focused on the assessment of e-learning systems at th... Read More about ELCMM: An e-learning capability maturity model.

eLearner experience model (2016)
Presentation / Conference
Hammad, R., odeh, M., & Khan, Z. (2016, December). eLearner experience model. Paper presented at ACIT

In literature, there have been many e-learning artefacts developed and promoted based on their ability to enhance learning and e-learner experience. However, there is lack of a precise definition of e-learner experience in literature. This paper disc... Read More about eLearner experience model.

Aligning systems of systems engineering with goal-oriented approaches using the i star framework (2016)
Presentation / Conference
AlHajHassan, S., Odeh, M., & Green, S. (2016, October). Aligning systems of systems engineering with goal-oriented approaches using the i star framework. Paper presented at 2016 IEEE International Symposium on Systems Engineering (ISSE)

Systems of Systems (SoS) are complex systems that result from the integration of a set of independent constituent systems - which are complex systems themselves - in order to achieve new functionalities and goals. The emerging interdisciplinary area... Read More about Aligning systems of systems engineering with goal-oriented approaches using the i star framework.

Towards a model-based approach to evaluate the effectiveness of e-learning (2015)
Presentation / Conference
Hammad, R., Odeh, M., & Khan, Z. (2015, September). Towards a model-based approach to evaluate the effectiveness of e-learning. Paper presented at ECIME 2015

There is a lack of a standard based approach that can be used to evaluate the effectiveness of different e-learning models due to their diversity and complexity. This paper introduces a new evaluation approach to assess the effectiveness of e-learnin... Read More about Towards a model-based approach to evaluate the effectiveness of e-learning.

Metaheuristic design pattern: Preference (2015)
Presentation / Conference
Aljawawdeh, H., Simons, C., & Odeh, M. (2015, July). Metaheuristic design pattern: Preference. Paper presented at Genetic and Evolutionary Computation Conference 2015 (GECCO 2015)

In interactive metaheuristic search, the human helps to steer the trajectory of the search by providing qualitative evaluation to assist in the selection of solution individuals. It can be challenging to design mechanisms to exploit human qualitative... Read More about Metaheuristic design pattern: Preference.
