International Education Studies , 2011, DOI: 10.5539/ies.v4n2p18
Abstract: The purpose of this research project is to explore the use of Blackboard Learning System (BLS) in enhancing interaction in online teaching and learning enviornment. This paper discusses the conceptual framework of Online Learning Interaction Continuum (OLIC) which explains the five levels of interactions. The OLIC was conceptualized as a result of a qualitative case study conducted at one of the university in Malaysia. The OLIC model consists of five levels of interaction beginning with level 1, the lowest level through level 5, the highest level. The levels are lecturer-interface interactions, lecturer-content interactions, lecturer-support interactions, learner-interface interactions and lecturer-context interactions. They state the challenges faced in the interactions such as facilities, time, knowledge and skill and policies and procedures, participation, interest, online instructional strategies and content. The research project demonstrated the importance of the level of interactions to implement Learning Management System (LMS) in teaching and learning in the higher institutions of learning.

Abstract: This research is a developmental study of Engineering Laboratory Management indicators. It is formed to assess the level of quality management of the polytechnic level laboratory. The purpose of indicators is to help provide input into the management process of an engineering laboratory. Effectiveness of teaching and learning at technical institution, mostly depending on the teaching and learning strategies by the lecturer during lecture and practical work in the laboratory. The indicators were developed through four round of the Delphi study. Four clusters of indicators have been identified namely documentation management, safety, environment and equipment. Good management of the laboratory is to ensure that facilities and hardware in good condition, safe and reliable, instruments must be accurate, consistent and can be detected, as well as teaching and learning activities carried out with guaranteed quality and accountability. The results should provide input to the Board of Engineers Malaysia (BEM) where it sets out the requirements of Engineering Studies program at the Institute of Higher Education. It is suggested that the emphasis of the quality should also include laboratory management as well as training and project development with industry to get recognition.

Journal of Studies in Education , 2012, DOI: 10.5296/jse.v2i4.2097
Abstract: A suitable learning technique among adult students especially in the early adult age. could create an active and conducive learning environment. The objective of this study is to investigate the problems faced by students during learning process. The study also will identify the dominant learning technique being practiced by most of the students. In addition, the study will also point out the most suitable learning technique for the present time adult students. Apart from that, the study will also identify if there is a relationship between students’ learning technique with their demographical aspects. This study focused on students in the early adult age that is students who are undergo the course of Bachelor of Education (Technique and Vocational) at UTHM. They are in the age of 21 years old and above. Sample of the research involved 108 students. The research is carried out qualitatively through the instruments of survey forms and supporting interviews. All data obtained are analyzed by using the Statistical Package for Social Science (SPSS) software version 12.0 in order to find the min score, percentage and standard deviation. Spearman’s Rho correlation is used to attain the relationship between student’s learning technique with their demographical aspects namely, their gender, race, age and academic achievement. The findings of the research show that the common problem usually faced by students is being too worried about the academic achievement. Where as, the dominant learning technique used by adult students are discussion and memorizing techniques. Furthermore, there is a slight relationship between students’ learning technique with their age. Consequently, it is highly hoped that this research could benefit all the entities involved. There are also some suggestions stated in this research for the purpose of improving the learning techniques of students.
A Qualitative Decision Trail in the Hermeneutic Analysis: Evidence from the Case Study
Mohamad Hisyam Selamat,Azizi @ Hamizi Hashim
International Journal of Business and Management , 2009, DOI: 10.5539/ijbm.v3n3p41
Abstract: Qualitative analysis is often reported as an intuitive, personal journey for the researcher. In this case, qualitative research texts are long on discussions of data collection and research experiences but short on analysis. This paper aims to reduce the tension in the qualitative analysis by adopting a decision making trail that is proposed by Clarke (1999). The reason behind this is that a decision trail does provide a clear and agreed analysis processes in qualitative analysis. The case that is utilised to achieve the aims of this paper is that the impact of meta-abilities (cognitive-skills, self-knowledge, emotional resilience and personal drive) in the externalisation and sharing of tacit knowledge. It is found that a decision making trail supports the principles of academic rigour in qualitative research.
Developing Organizations through Developing Individuals: Malaysian Case Study

Asian Social Science , 2009, DOI: 10.5539/ass.v4n1p51
Abstract: Research has highlighted that organizational development (OD) is a complex issue as it requires the input of employees at all the levels of an organization. However, to obtain this is a challenge for organizations as the basic training and education offered by the organizations and experiences of the individuals on their own and other factors such as fear and ignorance prevent such actions. For this purpose, other elements are also required. This research aims to identify and explain the usage of the elements that can encourage employees to contribute inputs necessary for OD. To achieve this aim, this research developed a conceptual framework based on the elements of understanding organizational roles, internal strengths, formal and informal discussion and rational discourse. To illustrate the application of the framework in a real life setting a case study approach that involved a large manufacturing organization in Malaysia was employed. From this research it was concluded that the future focus for the OD should be towards the development of staff members and creating a suitable organizational culture and infrastructure such that knowledge sharing is promoted.

Two phenoxyherbicide nanocomposites, namely cloprop-layered double hydroxide and cloprop-zinc- layered hydroxide nanocomposites, have been synthesized by using co-precipitation and direct reaction method. PXRD pattern showed an expansion of interlayer spacing with the value of 21.0 Å and 22.7 Å for cloprop-layered double hydroxide and cloprop-zinc-layered hydroxide nanocomposite, respectively. It is evident from FTIR and elemental analyses that both nanocomposites were successfully intercalated between the interlayers of layered metal hydroxide. Controlled release of cloprop anion from interlayer of nanocomposites for both cloprop-layered double hydroxide and cloprop-zinc-layered hydroxide nanocomposite into phosphate solution was rapid initially and slow thereafter. The percentage of accumulated release of cloprop anion from cloprop-zinc-layered hydroxide nanocomposite was slightly higher than that from cloprop-layered double hydroxide nanocomposite. Kinetic behavior of cloprop release was governed by pseudo-second-order for cloprop-layered double hydroxide nanocomposite while parabolic diffusion for cloprop-zinc-layered hydroxide nanocomposite. Results from this study highlight the potential of both nanocomposites as capsulated material for controlled release of cloprop phenoxyherbicides anion.

Abstract: Since oil palm (Elaeis guineensis Jacq.) does not breed true, tissue culture-derived material is the resource of choice for achieving oil palm homogeneity in terms of growth and yield. Currently, no genomic tagging method is available with which one could verify the ortet (tissue donor oil palm) from which the clonal planting material (ramets) origi-nated, particularly in cases of unsatisfactory performance. Thus, Sime Darby Plantation used 10 genomic microsatellite markers to genotype 8 sets of 5 ramets +1 ortet and 2 single ortets. The average genetic distance (D) among oil palms from the same set of ramets and ortet was 0.0000 with the exception of sets containing off-type ramets (D = [0.0834 - 0.1505]). The dendrogram showed that the ramets and their ortet of origin formed a sub-cluster, confirming their simi-larity. The 10 microsatellite markers were valuable to Sime Darby as tools for verification of ramet-to-ortet relation-ships and for the identification of off-types. Furthermore, the set of 10 markers revealed a high expected heterozygosity (He = 0.634) that is a high expected heterosis effect on which yield depends.

International Journal of Molecular Sciences , 2013, DOI: 10.3390/ijms14011022
Abstract: A systematic set of borotellurite glasses doped with manganese (1– x) [(B 2O 3) 0.3(TeO 2) 0.7]- xMnO, with x = 0.1, 0.2, 0.3 and 0.4 mol%, were successfully synthesized by using a conventional melt and quench-casting technique. In this study, the remelting effect of the glass samples on their microstructure was investigated through density measurement and FT-IR spectra and evaluated by XRD techniques. Initial experimental results from XRD evaluation show that there are two distinct phases of glassy and crystallite microstructure due to the existence of peaks in the sample. The different physical behaviors of the studied glasses were closely related to the concentration of manganese in each phase. FTIR spectra revealed that the addition of manganese oxide contributes the transformation of TeO 4 trigonal bipyramids with bridging oxygen (BO) to TeO 3 trigonal pyramids with non-bridging oxygen (NBO).
