SMART MULTIMEDIA LEARNING SYSTEM FOR AUTOMATA THEORY

ABSTRACT
Education is a vital ingredient for a sustainable economy where “knowledge is power”. M-learning initiatives can lessen the digital divide in education and promote a knowledge-based economy. The high saturation of mobile technology has made it imperative to have mobile applications that provide solutions in many aspects of the economy, including education. Smartphones/tablets have gradually become widely adopted mobile learning devices. In Science and Engineering, Automata Theory is a core subject that is abstract and mathematical in nature, which makes it difficult to teach and learn by educators and students respectively. This research is focused on the development of a Smart Multimedia Learning System (SMLS) that provides a multi-sensory learning experience for Automata Theory. The system provides a Finite State Automata (FSA) simulator, a real-time assessment and feedback mechanism for performance tracking. Moreover, SMLS has an integrated text-chat to support active and collaborative learning.

CHAPTER ONE

INTRODUCTION


Advancement in Technology has played a vital role in improving and evolving every facet of human living. The learning environment is not an exception, considering the improvement in the quality of educational content delivery; knowledge representations; overcoming time and distance constraints (Hamada, 2013); cost-effectiveness of e-learning; ease of learning; convenience of learning at individual pace; stimulating individual interests and intellectual curiosities (Hamada, 2013); and enhancing cognitive skills.

1.1        Background of the Study

Mobile learning and e-learning are current research topics in learning and education, and are vital ingredients for a sustainable economy. Education encompasses teaching, learning and training both formally and informally to empower people; in order to develop knowledge and skills for solving problems in the society. As the statement goes “Knowledge is power”; this is seen in the global economy shifting towards a knowledge-based economy, which depends more on intellectual capital than on natural resources for socio-economic development and global competitiveness (Powell & Snellman, 2004). Advanced technological skills and tools are products and services of a knowledge economy; hence, the need to develop educational aids or tools, that promote effective learning, cannot be over-emphasized.

The increasing global popularity of mobile devices provides the possibility of mobile learning and an increase in social interaction. Furthermore, as a result of the high saturation of smartphones and tablets, teaching and learning paradigms have experienced a significant shift (Hamada, 2013). Smartphones and tablets have gradually become widely adopted mobile learning devices, which could affect the adoption of sensing technologies (Hwang & Wu, 2014) for smart-active learning. A conventional teaching approach should be supported by motivation to learn besides the individual’s natural interest (McDevitt & Ormrod, 2013)....
