The cloud computing platform has become prevalent today and is being utilized by many organizations in government, industry, and academia. For teaching and training, its virtual environment provides a cost-effective alternative to physical labs which may be rapidly configured to provide hands-on lab exercises, as well as to run scientific applications for e-learning. In this paper, we present a survey of cloud usage aimed at empowering students with practical skills in an educational environment...

Augmented reality technology has recently become one of the primary technologies for science education. Although augmented reality is attractive, a need exists for good content, implementation, and evaluations, as in every technology integration process. To this end, this study aims to develop and evaluate an augmented reality application to teach fifth grade students about electrical currents. For this purpose, students’ attitudes toward augmented reality applications and science and technology...

This paper examined the opinions of academic staff of the University of Ibadan Nigeria regarding the preparedness of stakeholders of e-learning in Nigeria for fruitful e-learning experience and action in Nigerian universities. Data was collected from 240 lecturers using a questionnaire. The lecturers considered e-learning as an add-on, as they expressed inability to integrate e-learning into their present task and do not even have the time to do so. Lecturers’ assessment of e-readiness of studen...

Massive open online courses (MOOCs) hold the promise of democratizing the learning process. However, providing effective feedback has proven hard to offer at scale since most methods require a teacher or tutor. Leveraging big data in MOOCs offers a mechanism to develop predictive models that can inform computer-based pedagogical tutors. We review research on grade prediction and examine the predictive power of a model based on user video-watching behavior. In a MOOC organized around weekly assig...

Due to increase in complexity of modelling human behaviour in virtual environment, traditional or conventional didactic learning is limited in providing flexible or dynamic e-learning environment to students. Adaption of e-learning content with respect to several e-learning problems is open research problem in front of all of us. The purpose of this study is to review the learning styles having different classification methods associated with different e-learning problems. The open problems, cha...

This study investigated the effects of incorporating e-books into instructional material on reading and listening development among secondary school students with different levels of English proficiency. The experimental group utilized an e-book in regular English class, and the control group used a print version with the same content. An achievement test and focus-group interview followed the six-week e-book intervention. The test results showed that the e-book had a positive impact on listenin...

This conceptual paper explores the pedagogical implications of educational robotics (ER) in management education. Premised on Vygotsky’s social constructivism, this paper conceptualizes ER as a stimulus for serving dual roles, as a pedagogical means and as a learning outcome, by presenting a number of justifications and viable approaches. This paper suggests that ER presents a number of opportunities for facilitating learner-centred, experiential, and collaborative pedagogical approaches to addr...
Online learning has grown in popularity, leading to more widespread utilization of online exams. Online exams have started to become a preferred method of assessment in both online and traditional learning environments. They provide various benefits for the learning process and learners when used appropriately within online learning programs. The current study aims to investigate the academic achievement of online learners in online exams as compared to traditional exams and to analyze their per...
