The proceedings (875 pages) present the latest research and ideas on the use of e-Learning applications. The subjects covered by the papers illustrated the wide range of topics that fall into this important and growing area of research such as the perspectives of Online Education and the Vocational eLearning.


The 9th European Conference on e-Learning, ECEL 2010, was hosted by the Instituto Superior de Engenharia do Porto in Portugal. The Conference Chair was Carlos Vaz de Carvalho and the Programme Chair was Paula Escudeiro, both from the Instituto Superior de Engenharia do Porto, Portugal.

The conference was opened with a keynote address by Prof. Juan Carlos Burguillo from the University of Vigo in Spain on the topic of Using Intelligent Technologies to Support e-Learning.

The papers range across a very wide spectrum of issues, all of which are pertinent to the successful use of e-Learning applications. It is clear that the role being played by e-Learning in the pedagogical process is considerable and that there is still ample scope for further development in this area.

The range of researchers from different institutions in different countries is impressive. It is clear from the research being done all over the world that the role which e-Learning plays today and may play in the future is truly global.

With an initial submission of 220 abstracts, after the double blind, peer review process there are 97 papers published in these Conference Proceedings. These papers reflect the truly global nature of research in the area with contributions from Australia, Austria, Belgium, Canada, China, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Greece, Ireland, Italy, Japan, India, Malaysia, New Zealand, Nigeria, Norway, Portugal, Romania, Russia, Saudi Arabia, South Africa, Spain, Sweden, Turkey, United Kingdom, United Arab Emirates and the United States.

Academic Conferences International (ACI) is based near Reading, South Oxfordshire in the UK with a North American office in Montreal, Canada. ACI operates on a world-wide basis, holding conferences in Continental Europe, North and South America, the Middle East and Africa. The primary service provided by ACI is the management of academic conferences on behalf of universities and other higher education institutions. Once a call for papers has closed they arrange for them to be checked for appropriateness and then send selected authors a notification inviting them to submit a full paper. On receipt of full papers they distribute them out to members of the programme committee for double blind reviewing. They receive the reviewers’ comments and pass them onto the authors. Once a paper has been accepted for publication and presentation at the conference they prepare and publish the conference proceedings, both in electronic and paper form.
