    by Mei Liu, Shusheng Shen, Changsheng Chen 
    Abstract: The informationization leadership MOOC has become an effective training way to enhance the informationization leadership of school administrators. For better adapting the course to different learners’ needs, this study was to analyse the learners’ online learning behaviours. Through using data mining technology to mine the Informationization Leadership learning behaviours from five dimensions. We draw the following conclusions: The demographic characteristics of learners show that the learners are mainly composed of principals, middle-level educational managers and key teachers. The learner’s general learning behaviour characteristics are mainly expressed by the facts that the learners interest in practical cases, and few participants can last more than four weeks, and the learners like videos and texts.According to the learning behaviour,the learners can be divided into three clusters.The value of MOOC should not be evaluated on the base of certification rates but on whether the learner’s learning needs are met.

  • Geometrical Tools to Teaching Azeotropy Using Simplified Thermodynamic Models   Order a copy of this article
    by Gustavo Platt, F.S. Lobato, F. D. Moura Neto, G.B. Libotte, D.A. Goulart 
    Abstract: In this work we propose a geometric view of the azeotropy problem, using some simplified models. We demonstrate that the occurrence of azeotropes in binary mixtures can be viewed - geometrically - as the intersection of curves in the plane (for some models, these curves are parabolas). Furthermore, the idea of functions from the plane to the plane is used to understand the azeotropic phenomenon. These ideas are illustrated with two simple cases, with one and two azeotropes, allowing the analysis of a nonusual thermodynamic behavior -- such as double azeotropy -- with simple mathematical tools, by undergraduate students in Chemical Engineering courses.

  • Adaptive Optimisation Algorithm for Online Teaching Behaviour   Order a copy of this article
    by Jin-hua Zhu 
    Abstract: In order to optimise the weakness of Teaching Learning based Optimisation Algorithm (TLBO), which are characterized by slower convergence in convergence, lower accuracy, and easy to fall into local optimum. To improve the efficiency and shortcomings of the algorithm, it is believed that there are two mechanisms to optimise. The first is based on the mechanism of mutual learning among multiple teachers. The second is based on the mechanism of adaptive step size improvement. First of all, by setting up multiple teachers to teach in the TLBO algorithm, the diverse nature of the population can be preserved. Teachers can also explore and learn from each other and students can improve their learning efficiency. The algorithm is improved in the precision of optimisation, and the algorithm is improved on the weakness of local optimisation.

    by James Giancaspro, Nam Ju Kim 
    Abstract: The objective of this study was to investigate the long-term (10-year) impact of a small, yet unique, outreach effort where three teams of undergraduate students were paired with their parental counterparts to conduct civil engineering research supported by the United States' National Science Foundation. Those students are compared to a control group of undergraduates who participated in a traditional research experience and were exposed to the same conditions and research project. A survey instrument was used to collect data related to the participants' actual career path trajectory, self-efficacy, scholarly productivity, and parental influence in their decisions for postgraduate education and career planning. Parental support for students' postgraduate plans either remained unchanged or increased following the research experience. While the participants in the student-parent teams produced more scholarly products than the control group in the decade following the experience, the sample size is too small to draw causal inferences.

    by Jue Wang, Xi Chen, Yang Zhang 
    Abstract: In order to improve students classroom learning effect, the influencing factors of communication ability were analysed. The traditional method of analysing students classroom ability neglects the ordering of classroom communication ability factors, which results in poor fitting effect and high CPU consumption. This paper proposes an analysis model of influencing factors of students classroom communication ability based on support vector machine. The sample data were converted and cleaned to establish a SVM model for influencing factors and students classroom communication ability. The trained SVM model was used to analyse the degree of influence of each factor on students classroom communication ability, and the factors were ranked in importance, so as to clarify the influencing factors of students classroom communication ability. The simulation results show that the prediction results obtained by the research method are close to the fitting curve of the actual results. The CPU consumption of system operation is 15.88 Hz, which is lower than the traditional method.

  • Expectations for cooperative instruction supported by the Internet+Employment platform in work placement practice   Order a copy of this article
    by Xifeng Liao 
    Abstract: Close high-quality cooperation between a workplace employer and the college is a prerequisite for effective training of students in vocational education. Therefore, the researcher adopted the internet+employment platform as a typical case to analyse its main supportive functions for work placement instruction. Descriptive data analysis was employed to study the expectations of both vocational students and workplace supervisors for the cooperative teaching supported by the platform. The case study showed that the platform was weak in several areas such as in sharing teaching resources to facilitate employer-college cooperation. The results of the data analysis suggested that most students and workplace supervisors have a thorough understanding of the importance of closer cooperation and cooperative assessment by both the employer and the college. However, the expectations of the students and workplace supervisors were different in seven aspects. Among them, the students did not expect much cooperation that would lead to a closer monitoring of their work positions, and the willingness of the workplace supervisors to cooperate with college advisors in the use of cloud technology was quite limited. Suggestions for future development of the internet+employment platform were proposed. Combining the functions of this platform with those of other cloud platforms might support better employer-college cooperative instruction.
