Developing a courseware is easy. However, making a courseware usable for its target user requires a scientific process. As a response to that, a study has been carried out in making courseware usable for low-achieving learners. As part of the study, this paper aims to describe the application of signaling principles in the developed courseware spec...
Conference Paper
Children with learning difficulties require support during teaching and learning process. This study looks into the solution of learning difficulties confronted by the low achieving (LA) children who particularly have problems in literacy (reading) and numeracy (calculating). This study proposed the suitable learning techniques integrated into a le...
Article
Low achieving children require a helpful and fun learning assistance. As a response to that, this paper discusses an on-going study in proposing an interactive computer assisted learning for low achieving children, which specifically focuses on extracting and proposing design principles. The design principles of navigational design and object inter...
Conference Paper
This paper discusses an on-going study that initiates an initial process in determining the common components for a conceptual model of interactive computer-assisted learning that is specifically designed for low achieving children. This group of children needs a specific learning support that can be used as an alternative learning material in thei...
Chapter
This paper discusses about an on-going research that proposes a Conceptual Design Model of Interactive Computer Assisted Learning for Low Achieving children. The main intention of this paper is to determine the core segments of the conceptual model that is specifically designed to suffice the learning requirement for LA children. The determination...
Article
This article discusses an ongoing study in determining the generic components for a conceptual design model of interactive computer-assisted learning that is specifically designed for low achieving (LA) children (iCAL4LA). These children need a specific learning support that can be used as an alternative material in their learning environment. In o...

Solat has been known for its health benefits, however not many people are aware of it. Solat involves stretching that is in harmony with the body needs for health care. Therefore, this research focuses on solat guidance in three dimensional (3D) ways. The purpose of this research is to show the complete solat techniques as a therapy to the human bo...
Article
Learning is crucial for everybody regardless of their ability and achievement. Some children demonstrate inability in academic performance from their early stage of learning process; thus, categorized as low achievers (LA). In order to define learning difficulties and requirements among LA children, a qualitative study was conducted using three dif...
