Quality is a concept well extended in fabrication of products in industry and in services in all fields of life, between them, in education.
The hardware and software technologies are changing very fast, as a result, new uses of technologies for education are emerging. These can enhance student learning, prepare students for effective use of technologies and enable teachers to be more productive. The large and different type of technologies that can be applied to learning implies the need of a revision of what kind of technology is good for what type of education, and in particular, in Information and communication Technologies (ICT). Application of quality concepts to technology enhanced learning will improve the results in the learning process.
This track seeks contributions on the impact of applying the concepts of Quality in the use of Technology Enhanced Learning in the education.
This track will bring together researchers from academia and industry interested in meeting the challenges of the application of quality concepts to TEL. Topics include, but are not limited to:
• Quality in application of TEL
