A case study of metrics for assessing STEM scholarship programs
(Journal of Computer Sciences in Colleges, 2011)
As the challenges in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) education become more prominent, resources for promoting STEM education are more available. STEM scholarship programs, such as the S-STEM program ...
Experience on Mashup Development with End User Programming Environment
(Journal of Information Systems Education (JISE), 2010)
Mashups, Web applications integrating data and functionality from other Web sources to provide a new service, have quickly become ubiquitous. Because of their role as a focal point in three important trends (Web 2.0, ...
From Expectation to Actual Perception after Experience: A Longitudinal Study of the Perceptions of Student Response Systems
(Proceedings of the 17th Americas Conference on Information Systems AMCIS, 2011-08)
Interactive student response systems (SRSs) are becoming popular as many instructors at the tertiary level education institutions adopt the systems to transform traditional passive lectures into interactive classes. Despite ...
Starvation-Free Solutions of Mutual Exclusion Problems Using Semaphores
(Proceedings of the ACM South Central Regional Conference, 1987-10)
The standard implementation of mutual exclusion by means of a semaphore allows starvation of processes. Between 1979 and 1986, three algorithms were proposed that preclude starvation. These algorithms use a special kind ...
A model for open content communities to support effective learning and teaching
(Proceedings of the IADIS International Conference on Web-based Communities 2004, 2004-04)
Open Source Software (OSS) has provided a successful model for community-based collaborative development of software. The success of OSS has triggered interests in applying similar approaches to other areas besides software ...
Formative Assessment of Meaningful Learning in IS Education Using Concept Mapping
(Proceedings of the EDSIG Conference, 2017-11)
Information Systems (IS) education needs to focus on meaningful learning because it is essential in cultivating students’ problem solving and critical thinking skills. In formative assessment of the meaningful learning, ...

An Efficient Starvation-Free Semaphore Solution for the Graphical Mutual Exclusion Problem.
(The Computer Journal, 1991-08)
A fast method for constructing efficient solutions for graphical mutual exclusion problems based on semaphores associated with processes is described. The number of semaphores used is equal to the number of processes in ...
Undergraduate Research Experience through the NASA Microgravity University Program
(Journal of Computer Sciences in Colleges, 2013)
Meaningful Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) is known to provide many benefits including enhancing enrollment and retention, supporting richer experiential education, improving students’ personal, professional ...
Dining Philosophers Revisited, Again
(SIGCSE Bulletin, 1991-06)
This paper describes a problem in the solution of the dining philosophers problem by Gingras  that makes it inefficient, instead of the claimed maximal efficiency. A correct implementation is presented. Even then, the ...
