Since 2005, the purpose of the annual eLearning and Software for Education – eLSE conference has been the same: “promote eLearning related activities by providing a forum for exchange of ideas, presentation of technical achievements, and discussion of future directions”.

It has been proved through more than 500 articles that eLSE is the right place to go if you want to share lessons learned, progress in software development and research results on various eLearning topics such as: build up functional learning management systems, knowledge databases, network based education, computer aided assessment tools and standardized digital content. Year after year, the value of the papers presented proved that eLSE gain in professionalism and it is a useful tool both for participants that learn / communicate their presentations and for the “Carol I” National Defence University students who benefit from continuous improvement in the quality of learning.

In 2009, when eLSE reaches the 5th anniversary, the organizers’ aim is to reach a new level of quality for this event. To allow the participants to approach a wide range of topics related to eLearning educational mission the organizers, Advanced Distributed Learning Department, decided that the central topic of this year’s conference

"eLearning 2.0 and Innovative Practices with eLearning"

should be divided in three themes as follows:

  • eLearning visions and theoretical contributions
  • Software related developments
  • eLearning educational case studies

Papers describing original work on applicable solutions in the field of educational process, theories, methodologies, and software – solutions are invited for presentation in the conference.

Organizers consider eLSE 2009 a challenge, an opportunity to learn and to exchange experience. The conference may even offer the chance of a private partnership, and it is also a place to meet people that count in advanced distributed learning.
