  • Distance Learning Via Social Media
    Mohammad Derawi, Norwegian University of Science and Technology, Norway.

    In this research work, we examine one of the most applied networking website, namely the Facebook, for conducting courses as a replacement of valuable classical electronic learning platforms. At the initial stage of the Internet community, users of the Internet used email as the main communication mean. Even though email is still the indispensable approach of communication in a appropriate but offline mode, other services were presented, such as many Instant Messaging (IM) software applications like ICQ, Skype, Viber, WhatsApp, Instagram, Musical.ly and Messenger, which let people connect in a real-time mode. Nevertheless, the communication between people was further improved to the next phase, when Facebook came to reality as a social networking homepage that supports many features. People do not only link with others, but also establish all kinds of connections between them. Facebook offers rich functionalities for forming associations. The framework of Facebook delivers without charge software that were provided by traditional electronic learning. This research work looks at how people apply Facebook for teaching and learning, together with recommendations provided.

    Traffic signal control (TSC) with vehicle-to-everything(V2X) communication can be very efficient for solvingtraffic congestion problem. When regarding a low number ofvehicles equipped with communication capability i.e. penetrationrate (PR), an assumption that TSC can operate with a sufficientquality need to be studied. In this paper, this assumption wasinvestigated with simulations using COLOMBO framework. ThePR is the major factor that influences the quality of TSC, butas well the evaluation interval should be taken into account. Theperformance of TSC in means of sufficient period should followthe evaluations of the overall system. COLOMBO framework hasbeen further investigated and new two approaches have been proposed(i.e. instead of swarm algorithm used in COLOMBO framework, simple and fuzzy logic have been used). Toevaluate the performance of our proposal, a comparison withCOLOMBO's approaches have been done. The results suggestedthat the duration that a vehicle remains associated with roadside unit (RSU) directly or through group leader can be usedfor controlling (as well as evaluating the traffic conditions) of anintersection with good accuracy even for low PR.
