Introduction Over the last two decades, much of the developed world has been transformed by what are now termed Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs). These technologies exert an impact on most aspects of our lives-in economic activities, education, entertainment, communication, travel, etc. They have also been inextricably linked with economic(More)
Mammalian memory is commonly "explained" in terms of long-term potentiation (LTP) of excitatory synapses. However, depotentiation of inhibitory pathways (disinhibition) is also a known phenomenon in the brain. Artificial neural networks which are offered as partial models of the cerebrum traditionally encode memory by the potentiation of excitatory(More)
Pedagogically-driven support for groups is a continuing challenge as we move forward in embracing technology in an ever changing educational environment. SecondLife (www. SecondLife.com) is a virtual environment that is receiving global attention and recognition. In this paper, we compare SecondLife to other group support technologies through an extended T(More)
Computer supported teams are capturing the attention of academics and practitioners as organisations increasingly put them into practice as virtual teams. The practical relevance of current research into computer supported teams could be increased if greater attention is paid to organisational challenges as they form the context within which virtual(More)
Characteristics of the new millennium suggest that we give students the experience of working in multi-cultural distributed teams to prepare them for present and future organizational demands. In general, students respond positively to this type of learning activity. However, we know little in terms of what they are really learning, how to improve the(More)
Gestational diabetes(GDM) is increasing exponentially. To address this, we contend that a pervasive mobile solution that can facilitate self-care is a prudent strategy. To demonstrate proof of concept, user fidelity, usability and acceptability of such a solution a small pilot study of 10 patients was designed. A quasi-experimental approach employing a(More)
