Author: Putrika Prastuti Ratna Gharini
Affiliation: Department of Cardiology and Vascular Medicine, Faculty of Medicine, Public Health and Nursing, Universitas Gadjah Mada, Yogyakarta, Indonesia
Background: Electrocardiography (ECG) is a simple yet very useful examination to rapidly detect heart problems. To be able to recognize basic cardiac abnormalities and act accordingly, general practitioners should practice over time. Massive open online course (MOOC) and mobile learning application can be suitable learning media for those who seek for flexibility and accessibility.
Aims: This study aims to 1) develop an integrated curriculum of MOOC and mobile learning application; 2) perform user testing of the learning media.
Results: A total of 5 modules and quizzes were developed using shareable content object reference model (SCORM) in a Moodle-based learning management system. Each module was linked to the mobile learning application. User testing included 7 subjects which were recruited through convenience sampling. They were general practitioners with over 10-year experience. Only 1 who was able to complete the course. Half of them found difficulties in managing time between learning and other activities, third of them had problems with the MOOC features, and the rest were stuck in some unresolved quizzes thus could not go further. Although the system was unlikely suitable for users over 40 years old, all subjects agreed that it was convenient, contained relevant materials, and had an interesting interface.
Conclusion: Integrated learning system of MOOC and mobile learning application is potential for use among younger general practitioners. Its management should be robust to ensure good engagement and completion rate.

Author: ENGR. Romnick U. Cartusiano
Affiliation: Mapua University, Manila, Philippines.
Flood inundation time has increased significantly due to climate change resulting in temporary loss of mobility by the public, as well as during disaster management. The Las Piñas Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Office (LPDRRMO) operation relies on real-time updates of the situation in times of calamities. Barangay responders who give update on flood situation in the city are at risk of hazards since manual measurement is being done. According to the National Disaster Risk Reduction Management Plan, technological advancement in disaster mitigation should be developed and incorporated during disaster operation. Internet-of-Things (IoT) was used to create timely update for weather parameters across the city; float switch and ultrasonic sensors were used to identify the flood height, and DHT22 was used for temperature and humidity. The Arduino microcontroller for flood station is to process the data and transmit and receive it, via Short Message Service (SMS), analyze through the server using Jetson Nano. A Bayesian Network Analysis classifier is being used to identify whether an area is passable. Then Dijkstra Shortest Path Algorithm was used to reroute traffic that would consider the "Friendship Route" – an interconnected road network of Las Piñas City across various villages and subdivisions to ease traffic along the major thoroughfare. Users could use a cross-platform mobile application available for Android and iOS operating systems made using React.js and React Native. The application is tagged as e- WAS (electronic Flood Warning and Alternative Route System).

Author: Lo Yuok Yee
Affiliation: Faculty of Education, Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia, Bangi, Malaysia
The frequent usage of digital tools and technology has motivated teachers and students to become more active, innovative and creative in the lesson, especially to those learning English as Second Language Learners. The implementation of 4Cs in classrooms, particularly Critical thinking, Creativity, Communication, and Collaborative is also being suggested to put into teaching and learning practice. However, students’ interest level in writing English is extremely low as they are lacking of vocabulary and multiliteracies are not well practised in the writing skill. Therefore, in this study, researcher would like to determine the effectiveness of Plotagon, an animated video making application in enhancing Secondary students’ narrative writing skill. 43 participants have participated in the study and created videos in group by choosing the themes from the government Secondary Four textbook. After the script writing session, thematic analysis is used to analyse students’ scripts. The study has found that students’ narrative writing skill, which comprises Content, Communicative Achievement, Organisation and Language has improved with the assistance of Plotagon tool, nonetheless, students’ vocabulary had increased while peer-learning in writing takes place in learning English. Thus, the use of digital storytelling plays a significant role in motivating students to use vocabulary, write narrative essays and learning actively in English classroom.

Affiliation: Doctoral Program of Information System, School of Postgraduate Studies, Diponegoro University, Semarang, Indonesia
The rapid development of ICTs and their use has facilitated information generation in accessing knowledge base components for large segments of society. In education, important to create an online environment, in conjunction with the managed information system, to develop a managed learning environment that can support the program through a user interface that is standard across institutions. In this case, interaction reveals itself as one of the main components not only in the context of online learning. Even, part of the gap between learning theory and instructional theory can be bridged through the analysis and modeling of student activities in asynchronous discussions. The Agglomerative Hierarchical Clustering (AHC) approach is used as a method in clustering student interaction patterns in online learning in this study. The highest results obtained are average link testing so that the best agglomerative technique for student data is equal to 0.5913283. So that the cluster 1 grouping consists of 20 students in the active student category, the cluster 2 grouping consists of 5 students in the reactive student category and the grouping in cluster 3 consists of 15 students in the interactive student category.
Paper Title: Assessment of ICT Competency Schemes in the Philippines: Challenges of ASEAN
Author: Ravenal A. De Jesus
Affiliation: Department of Information and Communications Technology, Philippines
Information (Computing) Technology and Communications Technology have been converged that formed digital convergence. Since the year 1994 when the Philippines was connected to the internet for the first time, digital convergence in the Philippines encountered a number of challenges that include the following but not limited to: availability of computer hardware, availability of computer software, reliability and stability of internet services, and digital literacy of the people. Surprisingly, the number of Filipino engineering practitioners (Professional Engineers, Registered Engineers, and Technicians) registered in the ASEAN Engineering Registry (AER) is actually 2800 compared with 9530 over-all registrants as of year 2022. Divided equally by ten (representing the ten ASEAN Member States), the equal number distribution is 953 which was lower than the number of Filipino registrants. It seemed that the number of Filipino engineering practitioners registered in AER is actually higher than the average number of registered practitioners per ASEAN Member States. On the other hand, not all ICT practitioners were engineers thus ICT Sector (ICT-S) and ICT Enabled Sector (ICT-ES) were emphasized in this paper to delineate the ICT scenario in the Philippines.

Paper Title: Technopedagogical Devices in Blended Learning in developing countries
Author: Osbaldo Turpo-Gebera
Affiliation: Universidad Nacional de San Agustín, Arequipa, Peru
Blended Learning (BL) is a mixed teaching methodology that combines learning through the Internet (e-learning) with the experience of face-to-face classes. This blended learning scenario configures new alternatives for continuous learning. The modality resorts to the diversity of technopedagogical devices, propitiating areas of encounter and didactic interaction. The structural arrangement of BL makes it emergent, while at the same time it establishes it as a standardized educational modality, basically in higher education. To this end, this study seeks to recognize the importance and recurrent use of technopedagogical devices in BL. With this intention, 45 thesis reports on various experiences based on BL, defended in Peruvian universities, were analyzed. The results reveal the significant contribution of technopedagogical devices to socio-technological immersion, as well as to digital literacy with collaborative resources; adversely, they generate little involvement in tutorial accompaniment and a limited level of learning autonomy. Basically, although the technopedagogical devices do not show substantial innovations, they are progressively improving their applications. Specifically, in Peru, BL contributes to didactic mediations that, while not being at the forefront with respect to other societies, are progressively advancing in their use and knowledge.
Paper Title: Tipburn and Leaf Spot Detection on Strawberry Plants Using Convolutional Neural Network
Author: I Ketut Agung Enriko
Affiliation: Institut Teknologi Telkom Purwokerto and Syiah Kuala University
Nowadays, the process of identifying plants is still manual and fraught with difficulties owing to human nature. Human nature contains a flaw that renders the desired outcome ineffectual. Another issue is that strawberry plant diseases such as tipburn and leaf spots can damage growth and crop quality and impact the agricultural economy. So the researchers created a Deep Learning model using the Convolutional Neural Network (CNN) VGG16 Algorithm and a dataset of 2897 photos to classify tipburn, leaf spot, and, the healthy state of strawberry plant leaves. To minimize overfitting in classification training, the training dataset will be included. This is done so that the model can recognize the fundamental variance of the strawberry leaf picture object and achieve training and validation accuracy of 95.05% and 97.4%, respectively. Thus, the training loss value is 19.68%, whereas the validation loss value is just 7.54%. The finding accuracy was greater than 90% for both training and validation parameters. This research is expected to be valuable in giving information on the process of data augmentation and disease classification in strawberry plants.

Author: Mg. Julissa Elizabeth Reyna-González
Affiliation: Universidad Nacional Hermilio Valdizan
A virtual assistant is a professional who works remotely to assist the management and employees of a company. He develops his work through the Internet, either in his own home or from an office. It has a profile similar to that of a secretary, only adapted to online work. For me it is the most necessary resource for all entrepreneurs. It is the right arm of the founder or creator of the business. It is the first resource that usually appears in your project, and it is a resource that is born to help with many different tasks. (Azul, 2012) The advantages of virtual assistants is that it is not easy to find a really good virtual assistant, because the good ones are busy, and they already have jobs. So a virtual assistant allows you to be more productive by delegating the tasks that drain you the most and you don't like to focus on things that have to do with the maximum contribution of value to your project and its growth. In fact, it is a generalist profile in the that you may have to carry out a lot of chores. Develop an Expert System that guarantees the correct and complete use of the software for people with visual disabilities through a virtual assistant. The type of research is qualitative. People with visual disabilities from the city of Huánuco were taken into account, in total we virtually surveyed 13 people who suffer from this disability. As a result of the survey, we obtained positive information that our virtual assistant will be very helpful since most of these people are alone, bored and many of them do not have someone to accompany them on a day-to-day basis. Therefore, the majority of those surveyed agree that the virtual assistant would help them a lot in their daily lives. Design an intelligent system to provide support and emotional support through sounds to people with disabilities, where they will have the opportunity to participate in stories focused on educational and entertainment content. To carry out this project work, documents from different databases, publications and repositories have been consulted, among them the following can be mentioned: A virtual assistant has been implemented whose main purpose is to facilitate the search for information within the domain of the Faculty of Informatics of the Complutense University. The program is capable of analyzing the user's requests in natural language to try to offer answers that satisfy their needs. To do this, it uses a sentence analyzer, capable of identifying the most relevant elements and if any of these belong to the semantic network of the web, being able to give a coherent answer and show the origin of the information. (Cubero, 2015) "Development of a Virtual Assistant (Chatbot) for the Automation of Customer Service". It proposes the development of a virtual assistant to improve, automate processes and thus be able to satisfy the clients of a company. Another strong point of this report is that it mentions that the implementation of a chatbot will reduce the workload of employees dedicated to customer service. (Martinez, 2019) ”Integration of a CHATBOT as a skill of a social robot with a dialogue manager ”. In addition, the creation and development of a local CHATBOT that achieves similar qualities to the evaluated CHATBOTs is proposed, it will be the basis for further improvements and research work in the area of Language Processing. As a tool that will help to relate the CHATBOT to the Social Robot, a package is designed in the ROS Robotic Operating System, a system that works under the motto "divide and conquer" with which we can work with already existing modules such as automatic speech recognition and synthesis. of speech, which will allow us to interact verbally with the Social Robot. (Cobos, 2013) The expected result is that the system has a large amount of stored knowledge and that it meets the objectives so that it is very useful for people with visual disabilities, also that it serves as a reference and more similar systems are created.

A stakeholder is most categorized as the most influential individual, group, or organization that is considered a direct impact by the project's outcome. It’s clearly understood that the project manager’s job is to manage and shape these relationships to create as much value as possible for stakeholders and to manage the distribution of that value . Stakeholder communication is a top priority and considering that their interests conflict, the project managers must find a way to re-think problems for effective decision making. This study discovered that IT Projects are still failing even though we have many theories and approaches that can be adopted. This is because the lack of communication with stakeholders can impact the project's success. Seven IT project managers in Malaysia have participated in this study. Thematic analysis has been adopted to determine the critical success factor in project stakeholder management. This study yields an exciting finding that IT project manager competency influences their communication with stakeholders. Subsequently, an effective communication strategy with a new risk assessment that emerged from this study can benefit decision-making.
Paper Title: Inclusive Assistive Technology Learning Approaches for Enhanced Learning Among Students with Hearing Loss: Research Implication
Author: Ntino, Martina Ongbonya
Affiliation: University of Calabar
The study investigated the inclusive assistive technology learning approaches for enhanced learning among students with hearing loss: Research Implication. Three research questions and hypotheses were raised. Literature was reviewed according to the sub-variables of the study. The population of the study comprised all the students with hearing impairment in the Department of Special Education, University of Calabar, Cross River State numbering seventy- five (75) in all. Census sampling was used in selecting the sample which also represented 100% of the population of the study. The instrument used for data collection was developed by the researchers, named: “Inclusive Assistive Technology Learning Approaches Questionnaire (IATLAQ)”. The instrument was validated by experts in the fields of study. The data were statistically analyzed using simple mean, standard deviation, Pearson Product Moment Correlation, and population t-test. The result showed that the types of assistive technology used by the students were significantly low. There was also a significant relationship between assistive technologies (hearing aids, Bluetooth, and cochlear implants) in motivating the academic achievement of students with hearing impairment at the University of Calabar. The result further revealed that challenges facing students with hearing loss without using assistive technology include poor vocabulary in school, difficulty in understanding classroom instructions, difficulty of expression in a class by students with hearing loss, poor academic performance, and poor participation and engagement with their hearing counterparts in school activities among others. Based on the findings, it was therefore, recommended among others that capable individual lecturers, university authorities, and governments should partner with key stakeholders in Education in order to make assistive technology devices readily available and encourage students to have access to such devices in the Special Education Departments in Universities in Cross River State, Nigeria.

Author: Idika, Delight Omoji
Affiliation: Institute of Education, University of Calabar
In the research sphere, data management as an aspect of research management has assumed tremendous significance, particularly with an expansion in the educational research enterprise. Data management represented by the acronym RDM describes the management and organization, storage, preservation, and sharing of data collected and used in a research undertaking. To this end, the study focused on data management in research practices in higher educational institutions: issues in the research sphere. Three research questions and hypotheses were formulated to guide the study, and the design adopted was ex-post facto with an accessible population of 790 data analysts in selected higher educational institutions in Nigeria. The study adopted the multistage sampling technique with a sample size of 385 (50%). The instrument used for data collection was a researchers’ validated instrument titled “Data Collection Scale for Researchers (DCSR)” which was validated using the inter-rater reliability method by experts in the field of Education and the coefficient of internal consistency ranged from 0.74 to 0.79. The data were analyzed using descriptive statistics (mean, standard deviation, and bar charts). The findings of the study revealed that most data analyzed were cooked (not real) irrespective of the fact that the results were quite outstanding. Also, most data were analyzed by quacks who do not have the prerequisite skills in research practices. The study, therefore, recommended the need for compulsory participation in workshops, seminars, and conferences by all lecturers, students, and other education researchers in the academic environment to produce a worthwhile output that will inform policy decisions. Conclusively, the study proposed the need for data management centers to be established by institutions as this will help to checkmate and promote quality data management by research scholars.

Affiliation: Department of Computer Science, University of the Cordilleras
With the outbreak of COVID-19 in early 2020, conventional teaching methods have been altered, and the focus has shifted to network-based teaching. An essential component of incorporating technology into education is teaching experiments using virtual simulations. We propose a teaching method based on applying virtual simulation technology to programming experimental courses in order to address the problems of decoupling theory and practice, poor practical teaching effect, and inadequate xperimental resources. This studys research approach was design thinking. In this article, we discuss how to construct a teaching platform for a virtual simulation experiment that consists of a server and an experiment terminal and is based on the campus network. The administrative layer, the service layer, the application layer, and the display layer are the five tiers of a platform system design. An experimental teaching resource sharing mode is introduced, and the experimental results through the use of platform applications are demonstrated. The teaching practice has proved that the students professional interest and innovation consciousness have been significantly improved after the virtual simulation experiment teaching, and the transformation from & teaching experiment & to experimental teaching has been realized.
