Conference Paper
STEM family e-learning involves increasing the engagement in STEM home learning activities. STEM home learning activities range from exploring subjects such as science technology, engineering, and maths through a fun play based K-6 STEM curriculum. The family are trained to act as teachers, mentors, and coaches to the K-6 members. Families from edu...
Conference Paper
If educators were to be skilled game designers, then they would be better equipped in designing engaging education scenarios. This paper investigates a Gameful Method for designing educational scenarios, based around the core principle that instead of being educators dissecting and borrowing game elements, that they would be better suited to approa...
Conference Paper
A hybrid virtual lecture involves faculty remotely delivering a lecture online and learners taking part on campus. How to evaluate if engagement takes place in a hybrid virtual lecture is challenging. This research proposes an analysis of student engagement in a hybrid virtual lecture in order to identify if interventions are required to support th...
Chapter
Only 4% of household waste generated in Africa is recycled. Current research uses machine learning models in cloud-based solutions to classify waste. However, in countries with limited internet access, there is a need to increase user engagement in classifying waste using an on-device approach. Developing a machine learning model for a mobile devic...
Chapter
Restaurateurs manage the customer experience of a restaurant through the overall rating of reviews on platforms such as Yelp, Google, and TripAdvisor. The challenge is to identify aspects of the restaurant to improve based on a deeper analysis of restaurant reviews. This research proposes a Novel Aspect-Based Deep Learning Framework (ADLF) to impro...
Chapter
Predicting brain age from Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) can be used to identify neurological disorders at an early stage. The brain contour is a biomarker for the onset of brain-related problems. Artificial Intelligence (AI) based Convolutional Neural Networks (CNN) is used to detect brain-related problems in MRI images. However, conventional CN...
Conference Paper
A Mobile wireless Ad hoc NETwork (MANET) is a decentralized wireless network in which mobile wireless nodes either directly communicate with each other or communicate via other wireless nodes in the network. In addition, OpenFlow has disruptive potential in designing a flexible programmable network which can foster innovation, reduce complexity and...
Article
Due to the fast development in computer science new modules and specializations have to be developed, and the Computer Science (CS) curriculum needs to be reshaped in order to include 21st century skills such as problem-solving, creativity, innovation, communication and collaboration. This paper proposes a generic model for designing learning exper...

Quality education can be delivered at a time, place and pace that suit the learner, teacher and administrator. One way to achieve this is for universities to devise an appropriate and effective web based education environment that supports customization for the individual. Such an environment requires interoperability of heterogeneous systems, redu...
