Track 14. 10th International Workshop on Software Engineering for E-learning (ISELEAR’19)


This track hosts the 10th International Workshop on Software Engineering for ELearning (ISELEAR’19). This workshop is focused on all the Software Engineering aspects of the e-Learning application domain. In recent years, elearning systems have become real ecosystems where very diverse tools and techniques are combined, from digital repositories, mobile phones, tablets, learning management systems, social networks, etc. The design of an ecosystem of this type requires the participation of a very diverse and heterogeneous profiles such as teachers, developers, students, or employees of educational institutions. Likewise, these systems must respond and combine the needs of each of the participants. For this reason, the design and development of an eLearning system is very complex. In order to face the complexity and specificity of e-Learning projects, the use and adaptation of techniques of software engineering development and design is required. However, in some cases, the specificity of the projects will require the development of new tools and techniques that are more appropriate for this context. Given this context, institutions, companies and educational tool developers have made an important effort to define ad-hoc tools and methodologies specifically conceived for e-learning (production of learning contents by multidisciplinary groups, application of e-learning recommendation and standards, formative assessment approaches, etc.), and standards for different aspects of e-Learning systems. For these reasons, it is possible to consider a discipline about e-Learning Software Engineering, which addresses all the aspects of the systematic conception, design, development and maintenance of eLearning solutions. In general, Software Engineering topics are treated in a light way in typical eLearning scientific conferences, which generally are focused on pedagogical and user-centered aspects of advanced technologies and educational systems, while aspects like modeling, design, project planning, life-cycle, etc. are barely addressed or treated as collateral matters. The ISELEAR Workshop series are oriented to bridge this gap.


Topics of interest include but are not limited to:

  • Software Requirements Engineering in eLearning.
  • Software architectures, modelling, specification, design and programming of eLearning systems.
  • Software technologies applied to the development of complex eLearning systems.
  • Management of multidisciplinary teams of instructors, domain experts, and developers in the production and maintenance of e-Learning systems, applications and content.
  • Testing, verification and validation of software in eLearning.
  • Software Quality Assurance in eLearning.
  • Empirical methods in E-Learning Software Engineering.
  • Model-Driven Software Engineering for e-Learning.
  • Domain Analysis and Domain Engineering for e-Learning.
  • Software Language Engineering and e-Learning.
  • Metrics and estimation methods for Engineering Education.
  • Development methods of elearning ecosystems.
  • Evaluation of the usability of applications, systems and platforms, and user satisfaction in Engineering Education.
  • Process models for Engineering Education.
  • Standardization and normalization.
  • Certification of Quality Software.
  • Development of methodologies for Engineering Education.
  • Practical experiences and lessons learned.
