COVID-19-related lockdowns have changed the human work practices in all spheres of life including the higher education sector. Conventional classrooms have had to be transformed to online classrooms, which required readiness from technical infrastructure and human usage perspective. In this chapter, we present the results of a qualitative study con...
Conference Paper
Coronavirus pandemic has affected the normal work routine of individuals across the globe. Majority of governments have responded to this pandemic by imposing curfews and lockdown to flatten the curve of virus spread. This situation helped to minimize the virus spread but movement restrictions coupled with fear of getting infected may increase ment...

In this paper the authors explore the usage of Web 2.0 by the Saudi female students for their information and knowledge sharing. The results are based on a survey conducted in one of the public sector universities in Saudi Arabia. Questionnaire is developed to get insight about the usage of social media by female students. The results highlighted t...
Chapter
Government websites are the easy sources of getting access to the services offered by governmental organizations. These websites provide manifold benefits to their users i.e. efficiency of use, cost decline, effective communication between citizens and government, delivery of different service, transparency and time saving. However, users cannot ge...
Book
Continuous improvements in technological applications have allowed more opportunities to develop systems with user-focused designs. This not only leads to higher success in day-to-day usage, but it increases the overall probability of technology adoption. Design Solutions for User-Centric Information Systems provides a comprehensive examination of...
Article

In this paper we have presented validation of proposed usability driven web based software process model (UdWbM) through simulation. We have used Software Engineering gaming tool SimSE for making simulation of a system (taken as case study) by following the steps proposed by the model. Simulation was also developed for some existing models using th...

Despite the widespread use of online applications and websites, inadequate attention is paid to their usability aspect. Always there is a need to evaluate the usability of these applications and website specially the educational one to improve their user friendliness. The idea behind this research is to evaluate the usability of an educational webs...
Conference Paper
Sorting is technique by which elements are arranged in a particular order following some characteristic or law [1]. In this paper we presented an algorithm called as Relative Concatenate Sort, which is based on the idea of Selection Sort, but it divides the list into two. After dividing the list it takes the average of both halves of the list. Comp...
Conference Paper
Sorting is an important concept in the field of Computer Sciences. In this paper we presents an incremental sorting algorithm, which traverses the list in both directions (right and left) comparing first element of the list, with next two elements, and comparing last element with previous two elements in the list. Similarly by iteratively scanning...
Article
In this paper we have proposed a novel software process model for web based applications. This model is based on the empirical study carried out by us and also by the literature review of software development models. Model consists of three phases: Requirement Engineering, Design and Implementation. Model contains certain sub activities in each pha...
Article
The software system goes through a number of stages during its life and a software process model gives a standard format for planning, organizing and running a project. The article presents a new software development process model named as 'Divide and Conquer Process Model', based on the idea first it divides the things to make them simple and then...
Conference Paper
Sorting algorithms and the sorting itself is an important concept in computational field. In this research study, we are proposing a unique sorting algorithm, based on assuming the first value as smallest and comparing it with the rest of the list and assuming the last value as biggest and comparing it with the rest of the list. Running cost analys...
