One of the effective approaches is knowledge management, through which organizations try to reuse the experiences and knowledge created in their previous projects. Today, many projects are carried out by forces from other nationalities, in which each participating organization operates within complex national, organizational, and information contexts. So, knowledge is transferred between geographically dispersed individuals and organizations, and across cultural and national boundaries. Given these conditions, knowledge management processes, especially the transfer and acquisition of knowledge, are very important. The purpose of the present study is to design a conceptual framework of the contextual factors affecting the knowledge transfer in transnational projects using meta-synthesis method. For this purpose, firstly the previous research has been studied and interpreted the factors which are effective in transferring knowledge from different sources and then analyzed them using the open coding method to propose a conceptual framework</p> FARIBA shoeleh mahmoud golabchi siamak haji yakhchali ##submission.copyrightStatement## http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0 2018-11-08 2018-11-08 14 3301 3315 10.24297/ijmit.v14i0.7852 The effect of E-Learning on Teachers' Motivation: A case study in Jeddah University https://cirworld.com/index.php/ijmit/article/view/7896 <p>E-learning is &nbsp;defined as a learning tool that is supported by information and communication technology. In the last ten years, E-learning has become the key issue of universities all over the world and has a significance impact on current higher education.

In cultural creative industry, Internet of things has been widely practiced now, and will still have many creative potential in art work applications. In this consequence, the satisfaction of risk management requirements plays a fundamental role. Unfortunately, there is little objective, scientific research focused on evaluating the risks of security issues that result from information exchange among Internet of Things. In this study, the Grey Relational Analysis (GRA) is employed to identify and evaluate the risks of IoT. This research finds that Privacy, Access Control, and Trust are the top three risk factors. Using IoT in cultural creative industry is a new inevitable business trend, it is an unavoidable responsibility to our society to govern and constitute a healthy environment for all the related users.</p> Der Ren Hsu ##submission.copyrightStatement## http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0 2018-11-13 2018-11-13 14 3328 3337 How do Humans Interact with Chatbots?: An Analysis of Transcripts https://cirworld.com/index.php/ijmit/article/view/7921 <p>Chatbots enable machines to emulate human conversation, and recent developments have resulted in many online systems for the public to use. Although a few studies have investigated how humans interact with such programs, we are not aware of any that have analyzed transcripts in depth. In this study, students interacted with two Web-based chatbots, Rose and Mitsuku, for five minutes and evaluated how well they thought the software emulated human conversation. We reviewed the transcripts and found that students used fairly simple language and made many text errors. There were no significant differences between the two systems in our experimental measures, but we found that Rose tended to change the topic more often and Mitsuku seemed more argumentative.</p> Mina Park Milam Aiken Laura Salvador ##submission.copyrightStatement## http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0 2018-11-13 2018-11-13 14 3338 3350
