Abstract

Welcome to the 2017 International Symposium on Educational Technology (ISET). ISET 2017 is held in conjunction with the 10th anniversary of the International Conference on Blended Learning (ICBL) at the City University of Hong Kong, Hong Kong, China on 27-29 June 2017. Technology is the key driving force behind many of the improvements in teaching and learning practices. Papers presented at ISET 2017 discuss instructional technology and its applications in e-learning, online learning, ubiquitous learning and flexible learning. They broadly address the topics of open education resources, online platforms, learning analytics, issues and experience in blended learning. We trust that the proceedings will support a fruitful exchange between academics and practitioners. ISET received over 100 paper submissions this year. The Program Committee has painstakingly selected 59 papers for publication. We thank the PC members for their diligent work. We also thank City University of Hong Kong for providing venue and helpers, IEEE Hong Kong Section Computer Chapter for the technical sponsorship and Organizing Committee members for their hard work. Finally, we must thank the authors for their quality submission and enthusiastic participation to make ISET 2017 a success. Enjoy the papers.
