ELearning Capstone Project for Forensic Chemistry

ELearning Capstone Project for Forensic Chemistry

Introduction

Computer-based learning activities have distinct advantages over more traditional activities in presenting the lesson and solving problems. Schools make use of computer assisted instructional application such as tutorials, drills and practice, test examination and games can be useful by providing an efficient and interactive method for learning and reviewing class materials.

The Criminology Department have no computer in their laboratories, they only use the computer laboratory in information technology department, local area network connectivity and the internet connection is enough for implementation of the develop ELearning Capstone Project for Forensic Chemistry.

The researchers utilized the modified Waterfall Model in the employed analysis and design of the CAI system. ELEARNING CAPSTONE PROJECT FOR FORENSIC CHEMISTRY was developed using a modified Waterfall Model in which progress is seen as flowing steadily downwards (like waterfall) through the phases of Conception, Initiation Analysis, Design, Construction, Testing, Production, implementation and Maintenance. The ELearning Capstone Project for Forensic Chemistry was evaluated by IT experts based on the criteria set-forth by the standard screening committee.

ELearning Capstone Project for Forensic Chemistry shall be installed in the main server of the Information Technology Department and have a back-up server if ever the server will break down which is intended to provide a secondary storage of data. Computers are connected to the to a hub and printer to generate hard copy documents such as student progress report, list of student who log-in and list of user’s.

Taking advantage of new technology, the use of ELearning Capstone Project for Forensic Chemistry can help to improve the understanding of the student in their learning process.

RELATED STUDIES/SYSTEMS

Effects of Computer Assisted Instruction

In the study conducted by Karper et. al the purpose of this study was to examine the effects of computer assisted instruction on academic achievement. The participants were 138 graduate students enrolled in a beginning level counselor education course (12 men and 126 women with ages ranging from 25 to 45 years). Students’ pre- and post-test exam scores were used to assess the effects of instruction (either computer-assisted or non-computer-assisted).  Additionally, attitude toward computer-assisted instruction and academic achievement were assessed. The results of this study found that a statistically significant difference existed between students’ academic achievement and mode of instruction (either Computer-Assisted or Non Computer-Assisted).

RECOMMENDATIONS

Based on the finding and the results of the testing the following Recommendation are drawn:

  1. The institution should establish a Computer-Aided Instruction Laboratory (CAI Lab) equipped with state-of-the-art hardware for multimedia illustrations with a large collection of CAI software and other software that support word-processing, spreadsheet, database, graphing, and desktop publishing capabilities.
  2. The Department of Criminology should redesign the course curriculum so that the integration and use of ICT in the classroom will be optimized by the teachers and the students in teaching and learning Forensic Chemistry.
  3. The Dean of Department of Criminology should appoint a System Administrator to maintain and keep server up and running, secured, and keeps track of the logs.
  4. Instructors should utilize the developed ELEARNING CAPSTONE PROJECT FOR FORENSIC CHEMISTRY in their classes as a supplementary tool to the traditional method of instruction to assist students so that they overcome their difficulties in learning the course.
  5. Instructors should include or contribute additional learning resources with this software such as lessons and videos.
  6. Training programs should be conducted to the Instructors and Criminology students on how to use the ELEARNING CAPSTONE PROJECT FOR FORENSIC CHEMISTRY system.

CONCLUSION

After conducting a thoroughly study, the proponents had discovered that the Department needs a system that will help the teacher and student in enhancing their way of teaching and study. Therefore, the proponents conclude that the proposed system is the best solution because this will speed up the traditional way of providing knowledge and information to the student.

Summary

Today, in a fast innovative and digital world one should go with the trend in order to experience the comfort that technology offers. Computer now a day plays an important role in different fields of education. It is familiar sight in classroom in the twenty first century and technology has been used to streamline many educational tasks.

Computer Assisted Instruction in Forensic Chemistry (ELEARNING CAPSTONE PROJECT FOR FORENSIC CHEMISTRY) for BS Criminology Student shall be installed in the main server and shall be limited to the student and faculty of criminology department.

The researchers aimed to develop a computer based educational tool that is effective and easy to use for the students and teacher of Criminology Department for the subject in Forensic Chemistry. Its major goal is to provide practical instruction through interactive programs that tech effectively.

For the development of CAI System, the researchers used different procedures such as verbal interviews, used of online articles and prepared a study material that are related to the study.

The researchers created a system based on the result of the survey and users suggestions. Different testing’s were conducted such as unit testing, system testing, expert/final testing and users’ acceptance/final testing.

Based on the result, the study revealed that using Computer Assisted Instruction (CAI) in the teaching process provides advantages especially to students. It could stimulate and sustain the learners attention because of the interesting activities incorporated in CAI.
