Data was collected through six focus groups discussions in an institution of higher learning in Malaysia. A purposive sampling procedure was employed. A total of 120 students who enrolled in maritime courses from each year of study participated in this study. The study found that the students were actively engaged with technology use inside and outside of the classroom. The students perceived educational technology as an enabler for lifelong education, simulator for the application of scientific knowledge, and growth driver for advancing their knowledge and skills.

Social networking sites (SNSs) have become a major form of communication in today’s day and age whereby language use has been impacted in various areas especially in that of learning and teaching. Young users use literally half their week engaging in SNSs communication, thereby giving rise to a brand of internet slang which is entirely their own. This youth-speak has gone on to influence other areas of language usage. The questions asked in the survey increased the identification of the linguistic features such as the frequency of code switching and erratic spelling and leet, thus expanding the research base. The survey participants, the majority of who are from the Chinese ethnic group had experienced mother tongue interference in their English Language proficiency. The descriptive statistical method was used to analyse the questionnaires, wherein the data collected indicated a rather excessive usage of short messaging texts by almost all respondents owning a mobile device. To authenticate the research findings, an analysis of the text discourses was found to be necessary. The findings proved that the frequent use of short messaging had not majorly affected the English language proficiency of the participants. In academic writing there was a conscious effort to stay clear of SNSs language. The mushrooming SNSs has helped create a whole young generation who have their own meta-language, which provides an opportunity to probe to what extent the English language is altered. This research should kick-start research on how the English language in these areas is used and whether the frequent use of it can develop or weaken proficiency in the language. The results of the present study will definitely enrich the corpus of work conducted on the influence of language of social media and encourage further detailed research in this area.

Motivations and perceptions of community advisory boards in the ethics of medical research: The case of the Thai-Myanmar border. BioMed Centre BMC Medical Ethics February 2014, 15:12, pp 1-10 (Indexed in ISI, Impact Factor 1.71)
Background: Community engagement is increasingly promoted as a marker of good, ethical practice in the context of international collaborative research in low-income countries. There is, however, no widely agreed definition of community engagement or of approaches adopted. Justifications given for its use also vary. Community engagement is, for example, variously seen to be of value in: the development of more effective and appropriate consent processes; improved understanding of the aims and forms of research; higher recruitment rates; the identification of important ethical issues; the building of better relationships between the community and researchers; the obtaining of community permission to approach potential research participants; and, the provision of better health care. Despite these diverse and potentially competing claims made for the importance of community engagement, there is very little published evidence on effective models of engagement or their evaluation.
Methods: In this paper, drawing upon interviews with the members of a Community Advisory Board on the Thai-Myanmar border, we describe and critically reflect upon an approach to community engagement which was developed in the context of international collaborative research in the border region.
Results and conclusions: Drawing on our analysis, we identify a number of considerations relevant to the development of an approach to evaluating community engagement in this complex research setting. The paper also identifies a range of important ways in which the Community Advisory Board is in practice understood by its members (and perhaps by community members beyond this) to have morally significant roles and responsibilities beyond those usually associated with the successful and appropriate conduct of research.

Tse, A.Y.H. (2013). The Notion of Self-access Language Learning in Malaysia. Journal of Teaching and Education, 2(4):113-118. December 2013
Just a few Malaysian universities offer self-access language learning activities to students. The objective of this study is to investigate if self-access learning can promote self-directed or autonomous learning in a public Malaysian technical university. Data collection is by means of interviewing the Director, lecturers, and students in a self-access language learning centre (SALLEC). The findings depicted that students find it helpful and useful to exploit the self-learning materials in the centre. Lecturers were positive that the centre can promote autonomous learning. To conclude, self-learning should be promoted in Malaysia to enhance language learning and acquisition.

The employment of songs in an English classroom is not rare since it is the most invalu- able tool to aid language acquisition, physical, and mental development. The objective of this research is to survey the perspectives of English as a Second Language (ESL) teachers (n= 60) in Malaysian state primary schools on using songs to teach English to young learners (YLs). Data collection is by means of questionnaires and the findings revealed that teachers have concrete conceptions on the teaching values of songs and its potency in teaching ESL to young children. Yet, the result depicted that teachers had difficulties in selecting songs and the recommendation is to provide them with interesting and enjoyable song materials for their classes. To conclude, songs can become useful sources to assist language learning and acquisition if teachers possess the strategies in using them.

Abstract The unique properties of nanotechnology have made nanotechnology education and its related subjects increasingly important not only for students but for mankind at large. This particular technology brings educators to work together to prepare and produce competent engineers and scientists for this ﬁeld. One of the key challenges in nanotechnology engineering is to produce graduate students who are not only competent in technical knowledge but possess the necessary attitude and awareness toward the social and ethical issues related to nanotechnology. In this paper, a research model has been developed to assess Malaysian nanotechnology engineering students’ attitudes and whether their perspectives have attained the necesary objectives of ethical education throughout their programme of study. The ﬁndings from this investigation show that socio ethical education has a strong inﬂuence on the students’ knowledge, skills and attitudes pertaining to socio ethical issues related to nanotechnology.

Balamuralithara, B. An Investigation on Adoption of the Engineering Simulation Lab Exercise: A Case Study in Multimedia University, Malaysia. Computer Applications in Engineering Education By John Wiley; In Press.
Simulation based laboratory in engineering education become an important and appealing mode of laboratory replacing highly complex physical laboratory. The attitude of the students towards computers and experience of using the computers are very important factors that may affect the students’ adoption of simulation based laboratory. In addition to those factors, prior knowledge and preferences on the engineering simulation software are also significant determinants that may influence the adoption of simulation lab exercise among the students. At the same time, different learning styles (cognitive) may affect how a student performs in different lab settings. Many researches have been conducted investigating the elements involved in adoption of computer applications but less work has been done looking into those elements in adoption of simulation lab exercise among engineering students. This research brings new sight in engineering education specifically in simulation based laboratory.In this paper, we investigate the relationship between students’ attitude towards computer, experience in computer usage, students’ preferences and prior knowledge on simulation software, students’ cognitive style and adoption of the simulation lab exercise among Electronics-Telecommunications engineering students of Multimedia University, Malaysia. A conceptual model was designed to study the correlations among the variables in the model. The findings from the investigation indicated that all the factors-variables- have positive and significant relationships with the adoption of simulation lab exercise among the respondents in this study expect for the students’ attitude towards computer and their preference of using engineering simulation software. Different cognitive styles among the students did not have any effects on their attitude towards computer and adoption to simulation based laboratory except for the kinesthetic style on adoption to simulation lab.

Introduction: Delayed parenting and child bearing at a very young age impose various risks to development of the offspring.
Objective: This study aims to investigate the association between disparities in parental age and increased risk factor for common mental disor ders in the progenies during adulthood.
Methodology: The Malaysian Mental Health Surv ey (MMHS) was analysed for this study. Respondents were asked to estimat e the age of their parents at their birth. Presence of common mental disorders (CMD) was determined by referring to the diagnosis given by the Clinical Interview Schedule-Revised (CIS-R) instrument in the Programmed Ques tionnaire System (PROQSY) format. The association between parental age disparities and CMD was studied using logistic regression.
Result: Fifty three percent (n = 1972) of the MMHS respondents (N = 3666) knew the age of both parents and were included in the study. Three percent (n = 53) had signi ﬁcant disparity in parental age, or a difference of 11 years or more. Respondents born to parents with signi ﬁcant age disparity had a prevalence rate of 24% (95% CI = 22.12 – 25.89) for CMD in comparis on to 6% (95% CI = 5.99– 6.11) in their counterparts and 3.4 times higher risk for CMD, after adjusting for demographic factors, paternal age at birt h and presence of family history of mental disorders. Amongst those born to older fathers aged 50 and above, the presence of disparity increased the rate for CMD to 42% (95% CI = 3 9 .82 –44.18). Discussion: Disparity in parental age was signi ﬁ cantly associated with increased risk for CMD. Various psychosocial factors contributing to age disparity in both the father and the mother could predispose to stress and mental health problems.

The purpose of this study is to develop a conceptual model to examine the two dimensions of personal moral philosophy (Idealism and Relativism) and its influences on the Ethical Decision Making. The study use the Forsyth’s Taxonomy of Personal Moral Philosophy and the Rest’s Ethical Decision Making Model serves as the starting points to develop the conceptual model. Two dimensions of PMP and 4 main components of Ethical Decision Making were used to construct the model from the extensive literature. The developed model will provide the base for assessing the level of Ethical Decision Making by studying the influences of the level of Personal Moral Philosophy. This finding further the insight of the understanding of the philosophical and ethical analysis of managerial dilemmas. The model provides an insightful for the analysis of Personal Moral Philosophy on Ethical Decision Making. The model examines the independent influences of Personal Moral Philosophy on Ethical Decision Making and treats Ethical Decision Making as dependent variables. Given that Ethical Decision Making are often detrimental to organizational functional efficiency, it is appropriate for the management to have better understanding to diagnose effects of the Personal Moral Philosophy on the Ethical Decision Making. For this analysis, this model will prove valuable.

Soh, Or Kan (2011). Critique of a Language Learning Website. US-China Education Review, Vol.8, No.6, 2011. (Indexed in ERIC, EBSCO, ProQuest)
Listening plays a crucial part for overseas students in the United Kingdom. Students can never follow a lecture or discussion in English without listening. Traditional classroom teaching in listening limits students' time and space. However, the web-based listening course accommodates listeners a great deal, enabling them to access the Internet at their own pace.
In this paper, I would like to look at a language learning website for developing learners' listening skills, designed by the Centre for English Language Education (CELE) at the University of Nottingham. In the first part, I shall review the issues concerning listening, conventional materials design, Computer Assisted Language Learning (CALL) and actual websites established for English Academic Purposes (EAP). Through analysis, I would develop a set of evaluation criteria in order to evaluate the CELE listening website. These guidelines should also be helpful for teachers and students to select suitable listening on-line materials. By using these criteria and comparing with other websites for similar purposes, I would highlight the strengths and weaknesses of the CELE website and offer suggestions for its improvement. In the last section, I would consider the generalisability of the website in respect of design principles, exercise types and tools, to check whether it is appropriate for teaching listening in a specific context and whether it is applicable for creating a parallel site developing reading skills.

Over the last 25 years, there has been a growing interest in promoting learner training in ELT profession. Sinclair (2000a) and Benson (2001) have suggested that, in the prolonged and complex process of learning, besides lessons learned in the classroom, there are plenty more language sources outside the classroom the learner can select to learn and practise individually; therefore, it is advisable to promote learners’ learning-to-learn in order to maximise their learning potential. They have also further asserted that learners who have knowledge and awareness of metacognition tend to be more motivated and persistent in learning, thus, be more successful in learning the language.
According to Rubin (1987), children have significant capacity of thinking skills, and it appears to be crucially important to develop these skills in early life for learning success. Yet, it seems that few language teachers and textbook writers are interested in providing learning-to-learn instructions to young learners of English, due to view that children lack the capacity of reflecting and expressing their own ideas.
In this paper, I will attempt to discuss the essential elements of promoting metacognitive knowledge and skills to learners of English. There will then be a proposal of a learning-to- learn programme for young learners of English who are from ten to twelve years old in a language school and discussion of the reasons and justification for the proposal.

In recent years, the development of information and communication technology (ICT) in the world and Malaysia namely has created a significant impact on the methods of communicating information and knowledge to the learners and consequently, innovative teaching techniques have evolved to change the ways teachers teach and the ways students learn. This study’s main focuses are directed on developing a cooperative learning environment to promote an active learning environment of smart schools in Malaysia. Within this learning process, multimedia technology and Web 2.0 tools, namely, MyPortfolio were integrated to provide the students to learn on their own as well as to document their progress and experience within this cooperative learning environment.
The core purpose of this study is to establish the impact on student learning, their perceptions and learning experiences of the cooperative learning environment using web 2.0 tools among the smart secondary schools’ students in Malaysia. Surveys were conducted to students to ascertain their reaction towards these learning environment activities. The results of this project were encouraging as the students managed to cope with each other to reach their common goal. The usage of blogs acts as an important tool to enhance team cooperation and to foster a learning community within the class.

E-learning has been debated extensively with the rapid development of information and communication technologies (ICT). Social scientists have discussed about the teaching methods, pedagogy, combining traditional with electronic approaches, distance learning, learning environments, and many more. The Malaysian Qualifications Agency (MQA) encourages the use of e-learning as a complementary instrument. This study aims to explore teachers’ perceptions of e-learning in institutions of higher learning in Malaysia. The preliminary survey was done among 15 teachers from private universities and colleges around Malaysia. The findings reflected the teachers’ perceptions on their difficulties, benefits, professional development, and environmental impact of using e-learning.

Test anxiety is defined as the reaction to stimuli that is associated with an individual’s experience of testing or evaluating situations. This study aims to examine the fluctuation pattern of anxiety symptoms during a clinical examination and its relationship with underlying anxiety traits. Fourth year medical students of Penang Medical College undertaking the Ophthalmology clinical examination participated in this study. First phase of the survey, on anxiety symptoms was conducted immediately after the Ophthalmology clinical examination while the second phase, on pre-existing anxiety traits was conducted six weeks later with the aid of STAI instrument. Responses for both stages were combined and analyzed. Sixty-three of 122 students responded to both phases of the study, giving a response rate of 52%. All symptoms except trembling peaked 10 minutes before the exam begun showing a downward progression with no resurgence thereafter. Students with pre-existing anxiety traits had high anxiety scores 10 minutes into the examination and while with the examiners. Anticipatory anxiety is a source of concern and can effect performance and appropriate steps should be taken to help the students with this. A few other studies should be done to conclude.
