Abstract:
A teaching approach plays an important role in teaching and learning process of an introductory programming (IP) course. The teaching approach should focus on different programming skills required by novice programmers. In this study, we introduced the teaching and learning approach based on an ADRI (Approach, Deployment, Result, Improvement) approach in the IP course which focuses on both programming knowledge (syntax and semantics) and problem solving strategies. We compared the teaching and learning approach of the IP course with the five levels of SOLO taxonomy. We assessed the students’ performance by using different assessment tasks based on the four stages of the ADRI approach. Results show that the current teaching and learning approach of the IP course addressed all the five levels of SOLO taxonomy. The students’ performance in the Approach and Result stages (82%) are good, and the performance in the Improvement (71%) and Deployment (69%) stages are satisfactory. Overall, the ADRI approach provides positive impact on the teaching and learning process of the IP course.

Abstract:
In this study, the authors concerned about influencing factors on mobile learning tools for the applicable and sustainable mobile learning environment. The authors proposed an impact model with five influencing factors namely usefulness, interactivity, motivation, facilitating conditions, and ease of use. The 60 students and 60 teachers in different learning and teaching disciplines in higher education institutions were involved in this study to evaluate the model. Initially, they were asked to fill the pre-usage questionnaire with their initial mobile learning experience. Then, they were allowed to use mobile learning tools in the Moodle Mobile app and allowed to fill the post-usage questionnaire. The results reveal that the most significant influencing factor is the ease of use among others. Hence, the study concluded that ease of use would be the most significant factor to be considered when designing mobile learning tools in the mobile learning environment.

Abstract:
This paper is set out to explore the students’ attitudes towards online learning effectiveness using the Blackboard platform in three public Saudi universities (Taibah, Hail, and Al-Baha) during COVID 19 pandemic. It examines the learning activities which ensure the achievement of education quality during unprecedented online learning. The survey based- questionnaire method was used to elicit students’ responses. The numbers of students who participated in the survey are 333. The main section of the questionnaire contains questions about the main online learning activities. The coefficient relation of the p-value is highly correlated when tested using Pearson’s r and Spearman’s. The score of Cronbach’s Alpha is (0.93) which indicates (greater internal consistency) an acceptable level of reliability. The findings positively emphasize the effective influence of online learning on student’s academic achievements in most of learning factors except in an assessment factor where the development of new assessment methods is needed.

Abstract:
Mobile learning (m-learning) has become an increasingly attractive solution for schools and universities that utilize new technologies in their teaching and learning setting. This study investigates the technical factors affecting the development of m-learning applications services from students’ perspectives. It presents a model consisting of twelve technical factors, including content usefulness, scalability, security, functionality, accessibility, interface design, interactivity, reliability, availability, trust, responsiveness, and personalization. To evaluate the model, a questionnaire was designed and distributed to 151 students in Jerash University, Jordan. The results indicate that all technical factors have positive affects on learner satisfaction and overall m-learning applications services, however the data mining analysis revealed that security and scalability factors exert a major impact on student satisfaction with m-learning applications services. This study gives insight for the future of developing and design m-learning applications.

Abstract:
The objectives of this study were to investigate the feasibility of applying computer vision techniques and to analyse changes in behaviour and movement of high school students during class. The study is performed over two phases. Phase one focuses on developing a feasible method to use computer vision-based techniques in high school classes and phase two focuses on the testing of aromatherapy to affect student’s movement. All camera data was processed and analysed by OpenPose, Matlab and EyesWeb. Movement features such as velocity, acceleration, and kinetic energy and postural variables, spinal extension and neck flexion were calculated. Results of phase one, shows significant differences in the overall segment velocity, acceleration, energy, and neck flexion. Similarly, the second phase shows significant differences in velocity, acceleration and jerk for the left shoulder and elbow joints of the group exposed to aroma. In conclusion, the results show the feasibility of using computer vision techniques to apply in a classroom setting.

Abstract:
This study evaluated the comparative effect of interactive multimedia to text-based content on learners taking a software application course.111 participants took part in the study. The researcher employed the use of web analytics and online surveys to capture data. The study showed that there was a significant difference in the learners preference for either type of content. An exploratory study on the learners preference of specific interactive multimedia features showed that learners preferred the video presentation and the VDI than the other features. The study also evaluated the comparative effect of the two content types on the learner`s comprehension. For instances where learners made use of interactive multimedia they performed significantly better than instances where learners made use of text-based content. These results suggest that use of interactive multimedia can lead to better comprehension and participation than text-based content in self-paced software application courses.

Abstract:
The purpose of this study was to determine how South African learners compared with their selected international counterparts according to their teachers’ views. The analysis was based on predictor variables that are related to the use of computer activities in teaching and learning. These variables were extracted from the 2011 Trends in Mathematics and Science Study teachers’ datasets and linked to the learners’ data. The results revealed that regardless of the socio-economic status between South Africa and each of the countries, it could be claimed that some similarities can be fostered. Similarity does not imply being totally identical, but rather demonstrates which teachers responses between South Africa and each of the countries might have the same structure after the statistical analysis. The differences in teachers’ beliefs between South Africa and all the countries provided vital information about the scope of possible classroom practice and teachers’ inclination to different teaching approaches.

Abstract:
The aim of the study is to understand the effect of Internet addiction on student’s academic engagement. There are numerous studies explaining the negative relationship between Internet addiction and academic performance still very few studies could explain how the excessive use of the internet disrupts students’ academic engagement. This study focuses on two aspects, each of academic engagement viz, dedication, and vigor and Internet addiction viz, Emotional, and cognitive preoccupation with internet and Loss of control, and interference with daily life. Data was collected from 152 students in an Institute in India through questionnaires. The data was analyzed using Correlation and regression. The analysis showed that Internet addiction has a significant, negative impact on vigor and dedication. Interestingly, it was found that Emotional and cognitive preoccupation with the internet is not a significant predictor of Internet addiction as Loss of control.
