The Benefits and Constraints of the Use of Information and Communication Technology (ICT) in Teaching Mathematics  [PDF]
Nur Afiqah Zakaria, Fariza Khalid
Creative Education (CE) , 2016, DOI: 10.4236/ce.2016.711158
Abstract: The development of information and communication technology (ICT) has affected educators’ teaching methods through its application in learning and teaching mathematics. The objective of this systematic analysis is to explore the benefits and constraints of ICT that have been faced by educators during learning and teaching processes for mathematics. Based on selected literature, it was found that the advantages of applying ICT in teaching mathematics are: It attracts students’ interest in learning mathematics; it increases their motivation and performance; it encourages lifelong learning; and it facilitates positive interactions and relationships. Nevertheless, a few constraints have been faced by mathematics educators during teaching processes involving ICT. Identified constraints and limitations are: Educators lacking knowledge of ICT; minimal training and opportunities for learning about ICT; and limited technical support. Therefore, it is suggested in the literature that there is a need for an increase in training for mathematics educators in terms of computer usage and ICT applications for teaching purposes. Technical support should also be a concern, so as to motivate mathematics educators to apply elements of ICT in their teaching. This could maintain the positive changes and perception of students regarding learning mathematics.

Rohaila Mohd Rosly, Fariza Khalid
Creative Education (CE) , 2018, DOI: 10.4236/ce.2018.95049
Abstract: Diverse management information systems have been developed to meet organisations’ needs and fulfil their strategic management functions. These include NIOSH, which uses e-Daftar: a training-related information management system developed by the Information Technology Division of NIOSH. This study aims to measure the level of acceptance of the e-Daftar system among NIOSH employees, and its effectiveness. The Acceptance Technology Model (TAM), with the independent variables of perceived usefulness (PU), perceived ease of use (PEOU),and attitude towards using (ATU) is the basis of analysis. This study is a descriptive survey using a quantitative approach. A total of 180 participants were involved, comprising NIOSH staff who use the e-Daftar system, and 126 samples, obtained using the Krejcie and Morgan methods, were analysed. Questionnaires were distributed online using the QuestionPro application, and analysed using the Statistical Package for Social Science (SPSS) v23.0. The results show that the perception of ease of use has a significant relationship with attitudes to the use of the e-Daftar system. In addition, regression test results indicate that the perception of usefulness and perceived ease of use has a positive effect on attitudes to the use of e-Daftar, and perceived ease of use is the most significant predictor of attitudes toward consumption. In conclusion, the use of e-Daftar is very effective for the purpose of information management training when the level of user acceptance of the system is high. This study is expected to provide suggestions for improvements to existing applications, as well as reference material for future research.

Creative Education (CE) , 2019, DOI: 10.4236/ce.2019.106098
The latest educational platform that supports teaching and learning in this 21st Century is Massive Open Online Courses (MOOC) that seen as an effective and supportive future learning environment. To date, Openlearning.com has served as an established MOOC for educational online platform. The emergence of educational based technology seems can be benefited for employees empowerment. Towards this extent, our online training is used to enhance their managerial skills and training related task. Thus, this study is to explore the level of acceptance of the online corporate training via MOOCs due to the remaining gap between intention and behavior in the online training via MOOC setting. The acceptance of technology is assessed using online survey based on the modified Unified Theory of Acceptance and Use of Technology (UTAUT) factors. The respondents were 94 employees. The result was statistically significant and the insight of the intention to use the MOOC as online training platform was significantly accepted for improving skills on basic managerial finance.
Reflective Thinking: An Analysis of Students’ Reflections in Their Learning about Computers in Education  [PDF]
Fariza Khalid, Mazalah Ahmad, Aidah Abdul Karim, Md. Yusoff Daud, Rosseni Din
Creative Education (CE) , 2015, DOI: 10.4236/ce.2015.620220
Abstract: This study aims to examine reflective capacity among students when learning about computers in education. The study involved 35 e-portfolios written by first-year students who enrolled on the Computers in Education course in the Faculty of Education, Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia. All the students taking this course were required to publish “reflections” based on their weekly learning activities via individual e-portfolios. Thematic analysis was done using Nvivo 10 software to categorize the content of the students’ reflections. The analysis reveals that a large percentage of the “reflections” were non-reflective rather than reflective actions. This finding has implications for the way the course is designed, requiring a supportive environment, mentoring and group discussions, as reflective thinking is not spontaneous, but should be deliberately stimulated by the educational context.

Aidah Abdul Karim, Parilah M. Shah, Fariza Khalid, Mazalah Ahmad, Rosseni Din
Creative Education (CE) , 2015, DOI: 10.4236/ce.2015.618205
Abstract: Information skills assist students to develop and apply new understanding in their field of study, and thus hold a key to knowledge building process in higher learning. A qualitative study was conducted to explore the role of personal factors in the application of information skills among university students in Malaysia. The study was conducted in a Malaysian public university and the participants were 31 lecturers, librarians and students who were involved in student information skills programs run by the university library. The study observed the programs and examined the programs’ learning and teaching materials and interviewed the lecturers, librarians and students. The study found that personal learning orientations and goals influenced students’ application of information skills across their university leaning. The study suggested that in order to assist students to use information skills throughout their university learning, universities must help students to align their personal learning orientations toward university learning, as well as to help student to develop long term personal learning goals.
Exploring Reflective Capacity among First-Year Students on a Computer in Education Course  [PDF]
Fariza Khalid, Siti Fatimah Mohd Yassin, Md Yusoff Daud, Aidah Abdul Karim, Mohd Jasmy Abd Rahman
Creative Education (CE) , 2016, DOI: 10.4236/ce.2016.71008
Abstract: Reflective thinking requires higher order thinking skills as it involves students’ capacity to think, react and decide rationally. Thus, it is important for students to master reflective thinking skills as this will help to improve their learning outcomes. In the Computer in Education course, students are exposed with new skills related to current technologies, and are promoted to apply the technologies for teaching and learning purposes. All these skills are gathered through learning by doing process during the class which requires students to actively apply their reflective thinking. This study was conducted to identify reflective thinking capacity among the overall 123 first year students who took this course. Data were collected through an online questionnaire, composed using the Google Forms. An analysis was conducted using SPSS version 22 to produce descriptive as well as inferential analysis. The results indicated that students showed a high mean in the aspects of reflective thinking—“reflection” and “critical reflection” which indirectly indicated their ability to critically reflect on the processes they did and how to improve the processes. The findings also indicated that students showed an agreement with the fact that what they did previously and the course had challenged some of their firmly held ideas.
“To Participate or Not?”: Identifying the Factors Affecting University Students’ Participation in an e-Forum  [PDF]
Md Yusoff Daud, Fariza Khalid, Mazalah Ahmad, Mohd Jasmy Abd Rahman, Aidah Abdul Karim
Creative Education (CE) , 2016, DOI: 10.4236/ce.2016.718259
Abstract: Information and communication technologies (ICT), primarily computers and telecommunication networks, can be utilised as a means to cultivate thinking skills among students. Computer applications have been adapted or developed not only to facilitate critical thinking but also to help students to become reflective thinkers. In the Computer in Education (CIE) course, undergraduate students from the Faculty of Education, Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia, were exposed to collaborative learning through sharing activities in an e-forum via the Weebly application. This study was conducted to investigate the factors that contributed to their participation in the e-forum, as well as the hindrances. This study involved 113 first year students who took the course. Data were generated using open-ended questions posed in one of the forum topics. The data were then analysed descriptively using thematic analysis. The overall findings indicate a numbers of contributing factors leading to students’ participation in the e-forum. Among these factors incentives are given, such as bonus marks for those who showed the highest level of engagement in the e-forum discussions. In addition, students were driven by their own individual needs, i.e. to access new ideas, expand their knowledge and share experiences. This paper also discusses factors that hindered students’ level of participation in the e-forum.

Solvent Extraction of Nickel and Cobalt from Ammonia-Ammonium Carbonate Solution by Using LIX 84-ICNS  [PDF]
Mohammad Zaki Mubarok, Fariza Eka Yunita
International Journal of Nonferrous Metallurgy (IJNM) , 2015, DOI: 10.4236/ijnm.2015.43003
Abstract: In the present paper, separation of nickel and cobalt in ammonia-ammonium carbonate solution that simulates pregnant leach solution of Caron Process by solvent extraction using LIX 84-ICNS was studied. LIX 84-ICNS is a novel extractant which is still being studied, especially for nickel and cobalt separation in ammonia-ammonium carbonate solution. A series of solvent extraction tests were performed at various equilibrium pH, temperature, extractant concentration, and volume ratio of organic to aqueous solution (O/A ratio). The investigation results show that the highest nickel and cobalt extraction percentages of 99.8% and 90.3% were obtained from the extraction test at equilibrium pH of 8.75, temperature of 55°C, extractant concentration of 40% (v/v) and O/A ratio of 1/1, respectively. Oxidation of cobalt in aqueous solution prior to extraction is needed to minimize co-extraction of cobalt. Co-extracted cobalt can be decreased from 90.3% to 30.3% by mixing 1% (v/v) H2O22 in aqueous solution prior to the extraction stage. It was found that nickel and cobalt extractions by LIX 84-ICNS are endothermic processes with enthalpy changes of +171.03 and +7.64 kJ/mole, respectively. Based on constructed McCabe-Thiele Diagram, nickel extraction level of more than 99.9% can be obtained in 2 stages at O/A ratio of 0.5. The highest stripping percentages of nickel and cobalt of 98.82% and 3.16% respectively were obtained at 200 g/l H2SO4 stripping agent.

Open Journal of Discrete Mathematics (OJDM) , 2011, DOI: 10.4236/ojdm.2011.13017
Abstract: If a finite abelian group G is a direct product of its subsets such that G = A1···Ai···An, G is said to have the Hajos-n-proprty if it follows that one of these subsets, say Ai is periodic, meaning that there exists a nonidentity element g in G such that gAi = Ai . Using some properties of cyclotomic polynomials, we will show that the cyclic groups of orders pα and groups of type (p2,q2) and (pα,pβ) where p and q are distinct primes and α, β integers ≥ 1 have this property.
