This ebook constitutes the refereed lawsuits of the seventh overseas convention on Hybrid studying, ICHL 2014, held in Shanghai, China, in August 2014. The 31 papers offered have been rigorously reviewed and chosen from ninety submissions. the chosen papers conceal numerous features on hybrid studying, laptop supported collaborative studying, expericiences in hybrid studying, more suitable flexibility on studying tactics and the pedagogical and mental problems with hybrid studying.
Exploring electronic layout takes a multi-disciplinary examine electronic layout study the place electronic layout is embedded in a bigger socio-cultural context. operating from socio-technical learn parts equivalent to Participatory layout (PD), desktop Supported Cooperative paintings (CSCW) and Human-Computer interplay (HCI), the booklet explores how humanities provide new insights into electronic layout, and discusses numerous electronic layout examine practices, equipment, and theoretical ways spanning proven disciplinary borders. the purpose of the publication is to discover the variety of latest electronic layout practices during which more often than not shared points are interpreted and built-in into varied disciplinary and interdisciplinary conversations. it's the conversations and explorations with humanities that extra distinguish this e-book inside of electronic layout study. Illustrated with actual examples from electronic layout study practices from quite a few examine tasks and from a large variety of contexts Exploring electronic layout bargains a foundation for knowing the disciplinary roots in addition to the interdisciplinary dialogues in electronic layout learn, offering theoretical, empirical, and methodological resources for realizing electronic layout study. the 1st 1/2 the booklet Exploring electronic layout is authored as a multi-disciplinary method of electronic layout learn, and represents novel views and analyses during this learn. The individuals are Gunnar Liestøl, Andrew Morrison and Christina Mörtberg as well as the editors. even if basically written for researchers and graduate scholars, electronic layout practioners also will locate the e-book beneficial. total, Exploring electronic layout offers an exceptional creation to, and source for, examine into electronic layout.

“The booklet you're conserving comprises the keys to writing nice Silverlight three purposes. Use them well!”
–From the Foreword by way of Scott Guthrie, company vice chairman, Microsoft Developer Division
Microsoft Silverlight is a number one cross-platform, wealthy net software (RIA) know-how as a way to create extra compelling and interactive net reports than are attainable with basic HTML browser pages. Silverlight three contains major advancements over past models, together with “out-of-browser” operation, H.264 video, 3D portraits, and real-time effects.
Essential Silverlight 3 is the definitive reference and insider’s advisor. It not just covers all of the key beneficial properties of the Silverlight three runtime and the way to take advantage of them yet, in below the Hood sections, explains why every one characteristic was once built and the way each works. those “insider” motives frequently result in concise, sensible functionality information that may assist you accelerate your individual Silverlight applications.
Author Ashraf Michail is uniquely certified to provide an explanation for Silverlight three. he's a Microsoft Silverlight architect who has guided Silverlight from its beginnings in the course of the present model. during this publication, he exhibits how to
Integrate the rules and parts of a Silverlight software, together with XAP, XAML, and .NET code
Use Silverlight vector pics, bitmap photos, and animation
Display predictable and readable textual content throughout systems and animate textual content elements
Obtain mouse and keyboard enter, together with mouse wheel events
Implement soft animations to enhance your consumer interface and make your program extra interesting to the user
Use the Canvas, StackPanel, Grid, and Border parts to put out your software and outline customized format elements
Play top of the range, stay, and on-demand video and audio
Customize the integrated and toolkit controls and boost new customized Silverlight controls
Connect to and synchronize with facts utilizing Silverlight information Binding
Use integrated real-time results and outline customized HLSL pixel shaders
Enable GPU-accelerated rendering
If you're a developer who's getting all started with Silverlight or a professional Silverlight developer who's attracted to knowing the interior workings of the Silverlight runtime, this e-book is for you.
A transparent, entire advisor to getting the main from cPanel. anyone who has an internet web hosting account that offers cPanel, and who desires to get the main from this very robust software.

This e-book constitutes the refereed complaints of the thirty eighth Annual German convention on man made Intelligence, KI 2015, held in Dresden, Germany, in September 2015.
The 15 revised complete technical papers offered including 14 technical communications, four doctoral consortium contributions, and three keynotes have been conscientiously reviewed and chosen from fifty eight submissions.
The convention offers the chance to provide a much wider variety of effects and concepts which are of curiosity to the KI viewers, together with experiences approximately contemporary personal courses, place papers, and previews of ongoing work.

Have you ever attempted utilizing an 'automated' GUI checking out instrument, in simple terms to discover that you simply spent such a lot of it slow configuring, adjusting, and directing it? This e-book offers a wise and powerful substitute: it teaches you to construct and use your individual really automatic device. The method you are going to study is acceptable for nearly any improvement surroundings, and the instrument lets you shop your try out info and verification regular individually, so that you can construct it as soon as and use it for different GUIs. so much, if no longer all, of your paintings might be refrained from try out scripts, as the software itself can simply be made to behavior an automated GUI survey, gather try out information, and generate try out instances. you will spend nearly none of it slow fiddling with the device or software less than test.Code-intensive examples help all the book's guide, including those key subject matters: construction a C# API textual content viewer; construction a try monkey; constructing an XML viewer utilizing xPath and different XML-related sessions; construction complicated, serializable sessions for GUI try verification; immediately checking out executable GUI functions and user-defined GUI controls; trying out controlled (.N ET) and unmanaged GUI purposes; instantly checking out diverse GUI controls, together with Label, TextBox, Button, CheckBox, RadioButton, Menu; and, verifying attempt effects. "Effective GUI attempt Automation" is the ideal supplement to Li and Wu's earlier ebook, "Effective software program attempt Automation: constructing an automatic software program checking out Tool". jointly, they supply programmers, testers, designers, and bosses with a whole and cohesive option to create a smoother, faster improvement strategy - and, for that reason, software program that's as bug-free as attainable.

Robot manipulation is a smart problem; it encompasses versatility -adaptation to diversified situations-, autonomy -independent robotic operation-, and dependability -for good fortune below modeling or sensing blunders. a whole manipulation job includes, first, an appropriate seize or touch configuration, and the following movement required by way of the duty. This monograph offers a unified framework by way of introducing task-related facets into the knowledge-based grab proposal, resulting in task-oriented grasps.
Similarly, grasp-related matters also are thought of in the course of the execution of a job, resulting in grasp-oriented projects often called framework for actual interplay (FPI). The ebook provides the theoretical framework for the flexible specification of actual interplay projects, in addition to the matter of self sustaining making plans of those initiatives. yet another concentration is on sensor-based liable execution combining 3 forms of sensors: strength, imaginative and prescient and tactile.
The FPI procedure permits to accomplish a variety of robotic manipulation projects. All contributions are demonstrated with a number of experiments utilizing diversified actual robots put on loved ones environments; for example, a high-DoF humanoid robotic can effectively function unmodeled mechanisms with broadly various constitution in a normal manner with normal motions.
