Abstract -- Research has shown that bite-sized learning cater better to students with short attention spans and help instructors and students to stay focused on the course objectives. To address the difficulty of teaching technical implementation of privacy, the authors designed an assessment for one of the privacy learning modules. The assessment contains the analysis of the subject and implementation of the results using Google’s tool Oppia. The paper reports the experiences of using the tool by both students and instructors and how the use of Oppia increased student understanding of the topic and their ability to think critically and creatively.

1. Introduction

Many of the current courses address privacy as a legal and a policy issue and do not cover technical details, as technical implementation of privacy is more difficult to teach and learn without supporting environments. The authors had identified this deficiency and proposed a coherent and consistent curriculum framework on teaching privacy and used this framework as a guide to design and develop privacy learning modules with technical details. The purpose of these technical learning modules is to demonstrate what happens

Abstract - With the development of smart high technology related terminals, people’s life style has been gradually changed. While electronic devices become smaller and smaller, people often misplace their belongings. This can arise to seriously problems for the person in case of valuable information lost. However, most smart devices have Bluetooth capability. Bluetooth is a radio networking protocol in a short range to communicate electronic terminals wirelessly. In this paper we propose a system, smart finder, to find misplaced objects based on Bluetooth technology. We reviewed

Bluetooth technology and then designed hardware and software architecture for smart finder application. It has been shown the possibility and capability for many applications.

Abstract - Time series microarray experiments provide a mean to infer gene regulatory networks from the temporal pattern. In this work, the floral transition process was selected as a study case. Differentially expressed genes (DEGs) were identified by using the Bioconductor statistical package,

EBAYES. A gene association network (GAN) for these genes was obtained using the Gaussian Graph Model (GGM) based on DEG results. These findings suggest a potential relationship between those DEG events; their causal effects are inferred. However, the gene-gene interactions derived from GGM did not match the experimental protein-protein interaction (PPI) records, where most of the interactions are spurious. Here, we present a computational approach that started with PPI and examine the usefulness of adopting partial correlation analysis in reconstructing the regulatory modules. The presented approach is able to capture statistical significant biological features through the gene set enrichment analysis that are not ready derived from GGM analysis.

The advent of the laser and its increasing use in different applications has led to a demand for devices which can modulate a laser beam. A modulator is a device which changes the irradiance

(or direction) of the light passing through it. There are several general types of modulator; viz. passive or dye modulators, mechanical choppers and shutters, electro-optic, acousto-optic and magneto-optic modulators. In this chapter we shall explain how the distortion produced in a crystal lattice by the application of an electric field or by the passage of a sound wave affects the propagation of light through the crystal. These effects, the electro-optic and acousto-optic effects are of considerable practical importance as they can be used to amplitude and phase modulate light beams, shift their frequencies and alter the direction in which they travel.



Light as we have already discussed is an electromagnetic wave, which has both electric field vector as well as magnetic field vector. Any real beam of light comprises many individual waves and in general the planes of vibration of their electric fields will be randomly oriented. In such a beam of light the resultant electric field vector changes its orientation randomly in time and is known as unpolarized light. However, it is possible to have light beams characterized by highly oriented electric fields and such light beam is referred to as polarized light beam. The simplest form
