AbstractThis paper reports research on the implementation of a web-based videoconferencing tool (Interwise) for synchronous learning sessions on an industrial technology course offered through a university in northern Taiwan. The participants included undergraduate students from the same course offered in two different semesters. We investigated students' perceptions of interactions with the instructor and fellow students, their confidence in utilizing the Internet (Internet self-efficacy), and the satisfaction level that students perceived throughout the learning process with Interwise. We also examined the effect of interactions and Internet self-efficacy on student satisfaction. Data collected through paper-based and online surveys were analyzed using correlation and multiple regression. The results revealed that overall, learners perceived Interwise as a tool that was moderately easy to use for synchronous learning. Learners seemed to prefer using the Interwise features, such as emotion icons, talk, or raise hand, to interact with their instructor. Learners had high confidence in gathering data or getting support through the Internet, but low confidence in resolving Internet related problems. Both learner-learner and learner-instructor interactions were significant predictors of student satisfaction, while Internet self-efficacy did not significantly contribute to satisfaction. Learner-instructor interaction was found to be the strongest predictor of student satisfaction.

The National Council for Higher Education and the Growth of the University Sub-sector in Uganda, 2002-2012Kasozi, A.B.K. (Dakar, SenegalCODESRIA (Council for the Development of Social Science Research in Africa), 2019-03-25)I am very pleased to write this short forword to this book. It is clear in retrospect
that the NCHE made considerable contributions to the development of higher
education in Uganda in the period 2002 to 2012. In that period, a regulatory
institution was started from scratch, its administrative structure put in place,
benchmarks for assuring the delivery of quality higher education designed,
higher education institutions licensed, nurtured, and monitored, research in
universities encouraged, publications and displays of higher education ideas
initiated through journals and public exhibitions. The NCHE supervised the
expansion of universities from ten in 2002 to over thirty in 2012 and a growth
of enrollment from 80,000 to 180,000 students in the same years. Above all, a
culture of transparency and integrity in the conducting of public administration
at the NCHE was established.
