Introduction

In our days knowledge is presented as a transversal cut among different domains, fields and specialties which make up the formal and the factual sciences. The progress of the human-computer interaction, social networking and the latest technologies of information and communication make up the first triad which guide the contents of the handbook. Technologies which must be to the service of the human beings and not the reverse. Aside from the kind of guidelines that can be drawn to get new points of intersection among the different disciplines of the formal and factual sciences, the creativitiy and communicability will always be present because since its origins it has been regarded and developed as an avant-garde area in the interactive systems, especially through the interfaces and original content.

This handbook aims to report advancing in human-computer interaction, communicability, creativity and user experience. Our main effort focuses on finding the common denominator between the human-computer interaction, creative technologies and original content for users. That is, we address all those who are currently working to increase the quality of interactive communication of the user beings through the interactive design, new information and communiction technologies (NICT) and all their derivations, communicability and original content, wanting to know the last advances in the factual and formal sciences. In short, that this handbook can serve as a compass to guide the current and future lines of research of the students, professors, participants in university projects, experts in technology transfer, officers responsible for the research and development (R&D), etc.

We encourage submission from all areas related to aesthetic principles of interface design, augmented reality, cloud computing, communicability, computer animation, computer graphics, computer science, database, ethics aspects of the interactive information, human-computer interaction, ICT, imaging, information architecture, interactive surfaces, mixed reality, models of interaction, multimodal interfaces, social networking, software quality, theory and fundation of HCI, usability engeneering, user experience design, visual design, etc., and related disciplines.

Introduction

Since the 20th century, the technological breakthroughs in the classrooms were supposed to increase the quality of the educational process. In the theoretical-practical context (education, computer science and internet) we can briefly point at some researchers and/or entrepreneurs such as Donald Watts Davies, Paul Baran, Noam Chomsky, Marvin Minsky, Seymour Papert, Bill Gates, Steve Jobs, etc. First it was the inclusion of computers in the educational institutions until reaching each one of the classrooms. Later on it was about providing each student with a computer. A myriad national and international projects have been carried out all across our planet in the last quarter of a century. Currently we have the multimedia mobile phone as a device of great dissemination and use among millions of students.

Currently we have the multimedia mobile phone as a device of great dissemination and use among millions of students. However, the pending subject is still the quality in each one of the categories of interactive design. A quality which doesn’t depend on the hardware or the software, but also on the human and social factors. Factors which have an influence on the originality of the content and the creativity in presenting them in the interfaces, whether it is in the online and/or off-line interactive systems. Originality and creativity are two attributes which will keep being the focus of attention of the users and the motivation of use of the NICTs (new information and communications technology) in the next decades. Consequently, in the modernization of the sciences and the education, as it has been in the 20th century, it is always necessary to start by a panoramic 360 degrees vision of the different disciplines which make up each one of the formal and factual sciences. The goal is to find those positive interactions in the communicability of the students, professors, etc., with the new interactive mobile multimedia devices, for instance.

In the current compendium we intend to gather those works where the authors submit the results, the conclusions and future lines of research in that dynamic process of teaching, inside and outside the classroom. Therefore, the main areas to which this handbook is addressed are: education, pedagogy, hypermedia systems online and off-line, computer science, human factors, interactive design, quality, communicability, and new static or mobile multimedia devices. Although in principle they may denote an expanded list of contents, in fact they connote all those disciplines which in a direct and indirect way might collaborate in reimagining university education through high quality interactive systems as allies to the task of the professor. In other words, a triadic bidirectional relationship between professor, student and new technologies.

In this innovating and renovating action the mercantilist factor has to be excluded from the education to eradicate the negative human or social factors. That is, that we are trying to elaborate a valid and lasting guideline whether it is for the immediate future as well as for the next years. In short, drawing some cardinal axes that should orient the potential designers of the educational and interactive contents resorting to the software and the last generation hardware. For this reason each of the topics have been broken down further into simpler subsets or keywords, which doesn’t mean that other great challenges for the short, middle and long term future related to the four central axes have been excluded. Besides, an extensive listing connotes and reflects the requirement and also skill necessary to find intersection zones of the disciplines among the different domains, fields, and specialities; which at the same time potentially boosts and merges the formerly different scientific views, and achieves the worthy and rewarding end purpose of improving the quality of life of the current and potential users (i.e., students and teachers) of the interactive systems.

Introduction

Actually, the international legislation to tutor the computer users or other devices to receive and send digital information, it is very varied, lax and sometimes ineffective. The inefficacy is mirrored in an aspect which is not currently taken into account in the legislation for these issues, that is, the speed in detecting, stopping and repairing the damages caused in the face of unfair and unworthy attacks stemming from those cyber destructors directly or indirectly receive orders from the corrupt brotherhood.

In this second handbook of "Cyber Behaviour Collection" we will find the intersection of the formal and factual sciences aimed at education, culture employment and new technologies. We know today the undesirable effects of those behaviours: stalking, harassment, bullying, bossing, etc., through the cyber terrorists of the sciences. The goal is to know the latest breakthroughs and the immediate trends, and also in the long term, of each one of the disciplines that make up the sets of the areas of knowledge we approach. Besides, the prevention of the cyber destructors of the sciences into the educational structures, research and development (R&D), job context, cultural integration, knowledge transfer, etc.

The handbook encourages high quality chapters to find solutions and increasingly unify all participants in educational areas, social sciences, working world, research and development, computer science, information and communications technologies from the links between education systems, culture, integration of the people, job context, and new technologies to control and the prevention of the cyber destructors of the sciences in the new millennium.
