Dear colleagues,

For two years ago I asked for works on teaching modeling skills in IS 
(see the initial request at the end of this message), and got a number 
of useful tips, included, but not limited to the ones listed in the last 
message I sent to the list (see below). Since then, we have done some 
experimental work on the topic, some results from which have been 
presented and published. For those who are interested in the topic, here 
are the links to our published materials:

1. Bider, I., Henkel, M., Kowalski, S., Perjons, E. Technology Enhanced 
Learning of Modeling Skills in the Field of Information Systems. In: 
Nunes, M.P., Isaís, P., Powell, P., eds. Proceedings of 8th IADIS 
International Conference on Information systems, Madeira, Portugal, 
14-16 March, 2015, IADIS Press, pp. 121-128. Pre-proceedings version is 
available at http://bit.ly/1e5Hodh. Slides of presentations:

Journal: Interactive Technology and Smart Education (ITSE): 

2. Bider I., Henkel, M., Kowalski, S., Perjons, E. 
<http://bit.ly/1KTWpJm>Teaching Enterprise Modeling Based on Multi-media 
Simulation: A Pragmatic Approach. In: Benyoucef, M. et al. (Eds.): 
E-Technologies, LNBIP Vol. 209, Springer 2015, pp. 239-254. 
Pre-proceedings version: http://bit.ly/1KTWpJm.

The two papers, though intersect, do not coincide. The first is more on 
the pedagogical problem, the other one is more on the technical solution.

Thanks you for always providing help in our work by responding to the 

Best regards
