Designing Collaborative Virtual Environments Based on Real Spaces to Promote Community Interaction
Found in: Web Congress, Latin American
By Luis A. Guerrero, César A. Collazos, José A. Pino, Sergio F. Ochoa, Felipe Aguilera
Issue Date:November 2003
pp. 58
A Collaborative Virtual Environment (CVE) is a metaphor of a real environment, but it is not a copy of it. Members of a community may not know each other in real life. The design of CVE in which members are known and there is interaction in a real space is...
 
A Collaborative Learning Activity and a software tool for improving language skills
Found in: International Conference on Computer Supported Cooperative Work in Design
By Luis A. Guerrero
Issue Date:April 2009
pp. 516-521
It seems that actual software tools utilizing Computer-Mediated Communication mechanisms -like messaging or chat systems- do not help young students to learn good grammar skills. On the other hand, it is difficult to design and build software tools for sup...
 
A PDA-based collaborative tool for learning Chemistry skills
Found in: International Conference on Computer Supported Cooperative Work in Design
By Carlos Hurtado, Luis A. Guerrero
Issue Date:April 2009
pp. 378-383
Computer Supported Collaborative Learning could achieve a high impact on education for countries around the world if good enough tools were accounted in order to set Collaborative Learning environment in classrooms. In this paper we describe the design of ...
 
A Voice Recognition System for Speech Impaired People
Found in: Electronics, Communications, and Computers, International Conference on
By José Leonardo Plaza-Aguilar, David Báez-López, Luis Guerrero-Ojeda, Jorge Rodríguez Asomoza
Issue Date:February 2004
pp. 162
On this paper, we will show how MATLAB can be used to realize Voice Recognition; for people with Cerebral Paralysis. The first part of this paper is about what is the Cerebral Paralysis, and its consequences in the way of talk of the people with this illne...
 
Collaborative Learning and Creative Writing
Found in: Web Congress, Latin American
By Luis A. Guerrero, Boris Mejías, César A. Collazos, José A. Pino, Sergio F. Ochoa
Issue Date:November 2003
pp. 180
CSCL software tools must provide support for group work and should be based on a collaborative learning technique. The PBL based CCCuento tool is introduced here. It is intended to support apprentices groups in the collaborative creation of stories in orde...
 
Supporting JIGSAW-Type Collaborative Learning
Found in: Hawaii International Conference on System Sciences
By Tania Gallardo, Luis A. Guerrero, César Collazos, José A. Pino, Sergio Ochoa
Issue Date:January 2003
pp. 31a
JIGSAW is a well-known technique for collaborative learning. Students typically use it in a face-to-face setting without computer support. This paper describes a Web-based tool for both the preparation of the collaborative learning activities and the execu...
   
Undertanding Organizational Memory
Found in: Chilean Computer Science Society, International Conference of the
By Luis A. Guerrero, José A. Pino
Issue Date:November 2001
pp. 0124
Many Organizational Memory (OM) models and definitions can be found in the literature. Most models are complex or too general to directly build a computer system to manage them, i.e., to capture significant information, organize it and make it available to...
 
A Customizable Collaborative Virtual Environment on the Web
Found in: String Processing and Information Retrieval, International Symposium on
By Roberto C. Portugal, Luis A. Guerrero, David A. Fuller
Issue Date:September 1999
pp. 328
Collaborative Virtual Environments (CVE) support the collaboration, communication and social interaction among users in virtual spaces. In this paper we present a customizable CVE implemented on top of the Web that allows for the creation of various intera...
 
Design Patterns for Collaborative Systems
Found in: String Processing and Information Retrieval, International Symposium on
By Luis A. Guerrero, David A. Fuller
Issue Date:September 1999
pp. 270
Collaborative applications provide a group of users with the facility to communicate and share data in a coordinate way. In this paper we propose a pattern system to design the basic aspects of data sharing, communication, and coordination for collaborativ...
 
A robust memetic algorithm with self-stopping capabilities
Found in: Proceedings of the 13th annual conference companion on Genetic and evolutionary computation (GECCO '11)
By Antonio Berlanga, Jose Luis Guerrero, Jose Manuel Molina
Issue Date:July 2011
pp. 113-114
Evolutionary algorithms exhibit some traditional handicaps: lack of a stopping criterion, slow convergence towards the minimum, etc. Memetic algorithms try to combine the best exploration qualities of population based approaches with the exploitation quali...
