With the proliferation of internet technology, universities are investing in e-learning to enhance their position in a competitive world and to improve their students' learning experience and performance. However, the success of e-learning systems depends on student acceptance and adoption of such technology. Yet, little research has been done to verify the(More)
His research interests include Educational Psychology, ICT in Education, human-computer interaction, cross-cultural aspects of e-learning use in higher educational institutions , user adoption and acceptance of technology. Kate Hone is a Reader in Information Systems and Director of the Her research interests include human-computer interaction,(More)
Recent research shows that gamification is a valuable tool to improve students' learning effectiveness. However, its application continues to be limited. Educators remain reluctant to use games due to factors like limited resources, game complexity, inadaptability to various learning-outcomes, weak student involvement, and difficulty to integrate in course(More)
Phishing is an online identity theft, which aims to steal sensitive information such as username, password and online banking details from victims. To prevent this, phishing education needs to be considered. Game based education is becoming more and more popular. This paper introduces a mobile game prototype for the android platform based on a story, which(More)
Despite the prevalence and significance of e-learning in education, there is a dearth of published instruments for educational researchers and practitioners that measure users’ acceptance of e-learning. To meet this need, Teo (2010) developed the E-learning Acceptance Measure (ElAM). The main objective of this paper is to validate the ElAM (Teo, 2010)(More)
Segmentation of histology slides of cortical bone using pulse coupled neural networks optimized by particle-swarm optimization, On the relevance of uniaxial tensile testing of urogynecologic prosthesis: the effect of displacement rate. An FEM analysis with experimental validation to study the hardness of in-process cryogenically cooled drilled
We propose a quasi-Monte Carlo (QMC) scheme for the simulation of the general dynamics equation (GDE) for aerosols. The mass distribution is approximated by a fixed number of weighted numerical particles. Time is discretized and a splitting approach is used. Coagulation is simulated with a stochastic particle method using quasi-random points. In addition,(More)
