Abstract:With recent advances in technology and the Internet, the concept of teaching and learning have evolved significantly. Conventional face-to-face teaching is becoming a thing of the past as knowledge is everywhere and accessible from anywhere. Thus, a shift to e-learning is gaining momentum. Educational institute, companies, individuals and training organizations are embracing new technology and creating a shared online platform to facilitate learning, referred to as the Learning Management Systems (LMS). LMS are software that provide an online portal to collaborate in teaching and learning seamlessly, making it more productive and engaging. This paper aims to review the top ten LMSs both cloud based and open source with regards to their compatibility, usefulness, security, accessibility, scalability, stability/reliability and de-sign in general with emphasis on the recent development of the Moodle and NetLab at University of South Australia (UniSA). The open source online learning platform Moodle is adopted by UniSA to provide educators a space for collaborative learning using the optimized tools to create activities. Moreover, the Netlab online remote laboratory developed at UniSA, provides a platform for academic staff for teaching and demonstrations during lectures and for students to conduct practical experiments remotely on real laboratory equipment.

Abstract:The increasing use of information technology, communication tools and applied programming has led to the development and evolution of public policies, processes, and functions. Information and communication technology is entering not only the provision of citizen services, but also public utilities, improving accountability and transparency in government performance, and saving government costs and government management. Developing countries are moving toward e-government, but in order to succeed in deploying e-government, cultural and institutional considerations must be taken into consideration. This is a survey research and the statistical population includes experts in e-government in Iraq. Therefore, using Morgan’s table, 196 experts have been selected. To collect data, questionnaires were used. Through the study it was found that in terms of the development of the rule of law, Iraq's Missan Oil Company is in a good condition, and 55 percent of the respondents believed that the expansion of the rule of law, the behavior based on the principles and rules and avoiding to impose personal interests are the results of the deployment of e-government. Furthermore, according to the results and considering that out of six existing sub-hypotheses, 5 sub-hypotheses were confirmed, the main hypothesis of the research which is based on the effect of e-government on social justice is confirmed.

Abstract:Skill and competency test (SCT) is part of the Government's intervention in ensuring the quality of education in the Vocational High School (SMK) education unit. The teacher prepares vocational students to face SCT, especially vocational students of class XII. However, the obstacles often encountered by teachers in recommending students to choose competency that are in accordance with students' abilities. Ability Classification System and Student Ability Trends by applying the Learning Vector Quantization (LVQ) algorithm, it can be used as a solution to assist teachers in classifying student abilities and the tendency of students' abilities to be used to select skills competencies during SCT. This study aims to examine the use of the technology acceptance model (TAM) implementation of the classification system. As a result, the average user has felt the usefulness and ease of use of the system. Each TAM variable has a significant effect.

Abstract:LAZISMU as an amil zakat institution has an important role in collecting and managing zakat for public welfare. The existence of Law No. 23 of 2011 and the Minister of Religion Regulation No. 333 of 2015 on Guidelines for Granting Permits for the Establishment of Zakat Institutions requires that the management of zakat, infaq, and sadaq (ZIS) funds be transparent, accountable and prioritize professional principles. For this reason, there needs to be support from information systems and information technology to achieve these business goals. Information systems and technology will be utilized optimally if the development is aligned with the business objectives of the organization. Enterprise Architecture (EA) is a bridge to harmonize the business needs of an organization with Information Systems and Information Technology. Enterprise architecture planning at the LAZ has been designed using The Open Group Architecture Framework (TOGAF) with Architecture Development Method (ADM). Data collection is done by interviewing and making direct observations of the organization. Analysis tools used are the Unified Modelling Language (UML) method and the Value Chain method. The results of this study are blue print business architecture, data architecture, application architecture so that it can support the business processes that exist in LAZISMU.

Abstract:The quality of life that is synonymous with welfare lately much discussed. Survival or quality of life is an important issue in the economy and political knowledge. Quality of life describes the achievement of an ideal human life or in accordance with the desired. The quality of life index (IKH) provides a comprehensive ranking of the quality of life of a society in a country around the world. According to katadata news and research in 2016, the quality of life in 5 Southeast Asian countries is ranked lowest. The research finds that there are regional imbalances based on the indices of quality of life in 2018. Therefore, countries in Southeast Asia need to be genjotic in all areas to boost contributions to the quality of life in the country, as Dominic Volek, Southeast Asia chief in Henley & Partners Singapore. In this study we use the data from numbeo.com to see the value of quality indices in Asia in 2018 with various supporting indicators such as purchasing power index, security index, health care index, cost of living index, property price to income ratio, time index travel traffic, pollution index, and climate index. Where this study aims to determine how much influence the indicators that have been determined to calculate the CPI, knowing the best spatial regression model that can be used and determine whether there is asi gap in the region of Asia. The results of this study hope can be useful information for the community and a reference to make policy by the state officials in the field, but it can be a research material that can be developed again to see the difference and development of quality of life index in each country in Asia next year.
