Martin Bergaus investigated Service Delivery Platforms (SDP), focussing on their challenges and design aspects from a users perspective. Qualitatively he incorporated user experience in SDP research, developing a Grounded Theory (GT) then set out parameters needed when developing SDP investigations from a user viewpoint, before technical implementation. This study indicates usability factors for future SDP systems and contributes to the exploratory framework represented by the six GT categories. The results of this study benefit Information Systems (IS) experts developing SDP based ICT systems and those interested in practical applications of GT. Martin Bergaus, Ph.D., teaches as an associate lecturer at the University of Applied Science and Technical University in Vienna. His current research interests focuses on a qualitative research using Grounded Theory in the field of Information Systems. He has professional experiences within the ICT and company start up.

The Editorial team at Pearson has worked closely with educators around the world to include content which is especially relevant to students outside the United States. About the Textbook Problem Solving and Problem Sets A research-based problem-solving approach (Identify, Set Up, Execute, Evaluate) is used not just in every Example but also in the Problem-Solving Strategies and throughout the Student?s and Instructor?s Solutions Manuals and the Study Guide. This consistent approach teaches students to tackle problems thoughtfully rather than cutting straight to the math. NEW! DATA problems appear in each chapter. These typically context-rich data-based reasoning problems require students to use experimental evidence, presented in a tabular or graphical format, to formulate conclusions. NEW! Passage Problems appear in each chapter and follow the format used in the MCAT exam. These problems require students to investigate multiple aspects of a real-life physical situation, typically biological in nature, as described in a reading passage. REVISED! Bridging Problems help students move from single-concept worked examples to multi-concept problems in the end of chapter and are revised based on reviewer feedback, ensuring that they are effective and at the appropriate difficulty level. Extensive problem sets cover a wide range of difficulty and exercise both physical understanding and problem-solving expertise. Many problems are based on complex real-life situations. Problem-Solving Strategies coach students in how to approach specific types of problems. The number of Examples and Conceptual Examples exceed all other leading calculus-based texts, exploring problem-solving challenges that other texts don?t address. Visual Learning NEW! Annotated equations appear in all key equations to help students make a connection between a conceptual and a mathematical understanding of physics. The Art Program uses a simplified graphical style to focus on the physics of a situation and incorporates explanatory annotations. Both techniques have been demonstrated to have a strong positive effect on learning. Figures that illustrate Example solutions often take the form of black-and-white pencil sketches, which directly represent what a student should draw in solving such a problem. REVISED! Annotated figures enable students to draw the connection from photos, illustrations, and diagrams to the text discussion. Data and Research-informed Pedagogy NEW! Data Speaks sidebars, based on MasteringPhysics metadata, alert students to the statistically most common mistakes made when working problems on a given topic. Caution paragraphs have been revised to ensure that students get to the point quickly to focus them on typical misconceptions and problem areas. Learning Goals appear at the beginning of each chapter to help students focus their efforts. NEW! Looking back at ?
Secondary School Graduation: University Entrance Qualification in Socialist Countries: A Comparative Study compares the qualifications of secondary school students for university entrance in five socialist states (Czechoslovakia, German Democratic Republic, Poland, Romania, and USSR). The importance of terminal awards to social and educational policy is emphasized. This book consists of five chapters and begins with an overview of the research project and its aims as well as the methodology used, followed by a discussion on the expansion of secondary education as a trend in industrial societies. The problem situation of secondary stage II education in relation to the terminal awards with higher education entrance qualification is highlighted. The following chapters explore similarities and differences in the socialist system of education; the structural characteristics of secondary level II; educational policy in the socialist countries; and the countries desire to incorporate secondary stage II into compulsory schooling. This monograph will be of interest to educators and policymakers as well as students entering university.

This book provides a critical review of the theory and practice of University Social Responsibility. In addition to addressing the nature of and concepts surrounding University Social Responsibility, as well as its ties to areas such as service learning or engaged scholarship, the book also presents effective practices from around the world. Dedicated chapters demonstrate how University Social Responsibility can manifest itself in different types (civic, moral, economic or global responsibility), levels (local, national, regional or international), and formats (partnership, venture or joint project), depending on local contexts and needs. The book also focuses on three areas of work - educating students to take on social responsibility, broadening access to education, and applying knowledge to societal problems - to highlight the potential and viable ways University Social Responsibility can be employed to promote quality of life in society. Offering a unique resource, it is intended to stimulate thinking and expand the repertoire of all educators, administrators, and organizations who wish to incorporate societal needs into their core mission and promote quality of life in different communities around the world.

Part of the Williams-Ford Texas A&M University Military History series. In May 1970 aerial photographs revealed what US military intelligence believed was a POW camp near the town of Son Tay, 23 miles west of North Vietnam´s capital city. When American officials decided the prisoners were attempting to send signals, they set in motion a daring plan to rescue the more than 60 airmen thought to be held captive. On November 20 a joint group of volunteers from US Army Green Berets and US Air Force Special Operations Forces perfectly executed the raid, only to find the prisoners´ quarters ∅ the POWs had been moved to a different location. Initially the Son Tay raid was a devastating disappointment to the men who risked their lives to carry it out. Many vocal critics labeled it as a spectacular failure of our nation´s intelligence network. However, subsequent events proved that the audacity of the rescue attempt stunned the North Vietnamese, who implemented immediate changes in the treatment of their captives. The operation also restored the prisoners´ faith that their nation had not forgotten them. John Gargus not only participated in the planning phase of the Son Tay rescue but also flew as a lead navigator for the strike force. This revised edition incorporates the most recent information from raid participants and includes recent translations of North Vietnamese perspectives. No previous account of this top-secret action has given such a full account or such insight into both the execution and the aftermath of Son Tay. The book is published by Texas A&M Press. ungekürzt.
