Abstract - Four point seven million Malaysians are smokers; however more worryingly is that 7.6 million adults are exposed to second-hand smoke at home, at their workplace (2.3 million) and at public places (8.6 million adults). The numbers exposed to third-hand smoke is not even quantifiable as yet. Problem Statement: Efforts to create awareness on the danger of smoking need to be restructured to not only focus on the risk of first- hand smoking but to include the risks to second- hand and third- hand smokers. Objective: This project aims to increase awareness on effects of first- hand, second- hand and third- hand smoking through a multisensory project; ‘The Puffin Family’. Novelty: To the best of our knowledge, there has never been a product in the market demonstrating the effects of first hand, second hand and third hand smoke in one product. The same concept has been used in ‘Smokey Sue’ which demonstrates the quantity of tar collected in the lungs when a single cigarette is smoked, However, ‘The Puffin Family’ has an added –value as it also demonstrates the effects of second and third hand smoke. Benefits to society: This project brings to life how tobacco smoking affects the smoker, the unborn baby, the second hand and third hand smoker, which aims to increase knowledge of the society and especially the smoker themselves. This simple, practical and minimal cost product makes it feasible to be used and commercialized as a health promoting tool for the public

Abstract - Water is a fundamental need for all living things on earth, especially in humans, animals and plants. Humans on earth need water to keep their survival. Of the entire surface of the earth, almost two-thirds of the water is composed of oceans, lakes, straits and other types of water. Water is not only centered somewhere, but it can be found starting from the ground, the soil surface and even drifting with the air. With this abundant amount of water, it should be in the corners of the world that the needs of living beings are sufficient. But, in fact there are still some places that are difficult to meet the needs of clean water. From that problem, we made an innovation in the form of air converter into water (SmartCaw) Smart Converter Air to Water that works by DC power from the adapter to the TEC. One side of the TEC on the SmartCaw produces heat and on the other hand also produces cold, so the TEC is quickly cooled with a fan assisted, then the ice flower formed on the cold side eroded by the wiper then flows into the pipe that is in each gap between the TEC, after that Ice flower is flowed into the main water reservoir. This tool serves as an alternative water source among people who are especially located in limestone areas.

Abstract - Increasing number of students who have been barred from sitting the final examination has become one of the frustrations among the lecturers and academic administration. One of the possible factors that could lead to this problem is the current practices of calculating students’ absenteeism percentage which consume much effort and time. Automated Attendance Management and Alert System Version 3.0 (AAMAS V3) which was developed using Microsoft Access, Excel and Visual Basic, intends to simplify this process as well as monitoring students’ absences to class. It also aims to smoothen the management report of the students’ absences and issue early notification using short messaging system (SMS) and email on current status of absenteeism to both students and parents. The system would automatically track the number of notifications sent and generate automatic absenteeism report. Notification received via SMS and email are capable of giving prompt warning to students and parents about current absences percentage. AAMAS V3 which was tailored to Universiti Teknologi MARA (UiTM) has a positive possibility in reducing the rate of students being barred from sitting final examination as well as saving time in filling out forms and avoiding notification letters being issued manually. The system is beneficial and user friendly therefore it has a good potential to be commercialized to interested institutions or any other organizations

Abstract - This project uses hydropower to generate electricity by submerging it under water and the generated electricity can be used for small electronic devices. In the jungle or at rural area, it is difficult to find electric sources especially for campers and researchers. At times, researchers may face difficulties to conduct their month long research in the jungle without proper electric source. Thereby, the main objective of this project is to create a generator that produces electricity for small electronic devices. The second objective is to create a device that can detect the voltage, temperature and humidity of the environment. Third objective is to create an IOT (Internet of Things) device that can monitor and observe the temperature, humidity and voltage data more easily. This project was developed by using a generator with waterproof tube fixing that holds the generator. An external chassis was created to reinforce the generator and 3D printed blades were used to turn the generator when there was water flow. This portable generator with voltage, temperature and humidity sensors can help to detect and observe the temperature and humidity of surrounding environment. Water flow can be calculated through the generated voltage value. Data are then collected and sent to a mobile application called “Blynk” and to a web server called “Thingspeak” which help to observe data from a far distance. Campers and researchers can then generate their own electric energy while camping or while doing research as well as observed the generated data from far away

Abstract - Volcano eruption to date has claimed many casualties. This is due to the difficulty of prediction of an eruption in a volcano. A volcanic eruption can be predicted with some parameters, one of the most important measurement parameter, namely the parameters of land surface temperatures. Volcanic eruption will experience can lead to increased land surface temperature significantly. High land surface temperature will affect the temperature of the surrounding air, thus causing an increase of air temperature as well. Community slopes of volcanoes during this does not get info quickly when the eruption will occur. This issue is caused slowness of information that comes as a result of information that came not directly acquired by mobile phone community. Rapid development of mobile telephony has created an Android service that can be used to access all information quickly. Rescue many souls before the eruption occurred is needed, therefore, necessary information can be used by the people directly, through the application of pre-disaster mitigation volcanic eruption in the Android app. Results from this study is an application that can run on mobile devices, and provides the parameters for the air temperature to pre-disaster mitigation volcano eruption. Air temperature measurements periodically through these applications can enhance community preparedness in daily activity on sloping volcano, researchers in conducting research on the volcano, and the government in determining the appropriate time for a quick evacuation.

Abstract - Malaysia has been ranked as the second highest country in Asia on its infrastructure development through Malaysian Public Private Partnership (3Ps) projects. In this regard, Malaysian government has set a target to become a developed nation under the 'Vision 2020' country plan to meet high demands for public infrastructure development. Therefore, 3Ps is anticipated to be one of the drivers of such developments. In Malaysia, privatisation of public projects and 3Ps projects has begun since the 1980s and this trend has continued and maintained until the Eleventh Malaysia Plan (2016-2020). Among the crucial elements in the 3Ps implementation is specifying the standard assessment of private concessionaires’ performance through the execution of key performance indicators (KPIs). Currently, KPIs have served as the most useful performance measurement tool (PMT) in measuring performance of 3Ps projects. However, the methods performed in assessing the performance of 3Ps projects have been criticized among researchers during the implementation of 3Ps projects in Malaysia. Therefore, 3Ps-PMT was develop to assist the construction stakeholders to overwhelm this issue. With 3Ps-PMT, the performance level of the 3Ps projects can be measured easily and more realistic to ensure value for money (VFM) is achieved. The facility offered by 3Ps-PMT can also be adopted as a very effective Performance Audit Tool for continuous learning in 3Ps project management.

Abstract - Political science and public administration is the main course offered by the Faculty of Administrative Science and Policy Studies, Universiti Teknologi MARA to the Diploma in Public Administration (DPA) students. Basically, the DPA students will learn about the government administration and they must familiarized themselves with the political terminologies. The problem encounter among some of the DPA students when they are confused and facing difficulties to explain the political terminologies that they have learnt. This will create problems because most of the courses offered to the DPA students related to the government administration such as introduction to public administration, political science, government and politics, Malaysian politic, local government administration, public financial administration and development administration. Other than that, if the students do not have good general knowledge and not familiar with the history, politics and current issues happening in Malaysia, they will face difficulties in completing the course and will repeat the course or extend the study. Thus, the purpose of developing this Political Fun Race is to give early exposure to enhance the students’ understanding pertaining to political and public administration terminologies and improve student’s achievement more than 80 percent passing rate and help them to graduate-on-time (GOT). Inspired by one of the popular childhood games; Snake and Ladder, with four (4) divided components (board, dice, counter and questions cards), this project aimed to help DPA students to develop their proper understanding about the political term and issues happening in Malaysia by an innovation in teaching and learning activities. The product can be based on a collaboration with Pejabat Pendidikan Daerah (PPD) by introducing it to Form 6, General Studies students. This project also will suit well to the Malaysian whereby it can create awareness of Malaysian on the current political issues. It is hoped that this Political Fun Race will be made available to all students regardless of their course, program, university or country as well as the public.

Faculty of Health & Life Sciences INTI International University, Malaysia
Abstract - Gloves protect the user against safety or health hazards like microbial contamination or hazardous chemical at work. Improper disposal of used gloves either in dustbin or biohazard bin or keeping them in dustbin for long time causes microbes to grow and that may lead to the spread of pathogenic microorganisms or toxin chemicals. Such situations does not only occur in medical laboratories, it also occur in universities, clinics and research laboratories. To overcome such problem, an invention can be made by the addition of ziplock that’s ensure whatever has been exposed by the gloves remain trapped inside. Adding the ziplock will not change the original material, but it is effective to avoid the spread of microbes out from dustbin or biohazard containers until it’s been successfully disposed. This will ensures the safety for students, researchers, doctors and workers in laboratories area.

Meanwhile, the future of education emphasizes the immense need to prepare the coming workforce for the challenges ahead. The impact of Industry 4.0 obliges the higher educational institutes to deliver future generations with the right set of skills and knowledge. Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) have been regarded as a dominant force in the transformation of learning. The challenges that MOOCs bring to the learning arena spur educators to improve delivery. Existing development of MOOCs usually focuses on pedagogy, assessment, and technology. It rarely takes into account learners and instructors experience and motivation, which impedes the course completion. Learning content and instructions should be designed and developed so that is tailored to individual needs. There is also the requirement for a systematic methodology that guides the design and development process to secure the content quality. Thus, MOOC 4.0 is presented as establishing grounds for constructing a sustainable MOOC ecosystem. The framework proposes a systematic guideline in designing and developing quality and sustainable MOOC. Constructed on the established motivational, psychological, and web development model, MOOC 4.0 features strategies in designing a quality motivational content and instructions, and present a systematic approach for MOOC development process. MOOC 4.0 Framework provides an efficient, secure, and cost-effective structure for the instructors to deliver quality learning content and instructions that motivate the learners to further their lifelong learning and develop a knowledgeable and skillful society for Industry 4.0.

Abstract The Malaysian Ministry of Higher Education (MOHE) put the concern on knowledge transfer on Malaysia research universities (RUs) as the research, development and commercialization collaborations have been the key activities of Malaysia RU. However, the knowledge transfer through research collaboration may occur in different circumstances involving different level of participations (inter-universities and intra-universities) that make it difficult to determine the knowledge transfer through the research collaboration. This research examines the co-authorship collaboration pattern as it is believed that co-authorship collaboration directly portraying the knowledge transfer activities of Malaysia RUs aligned with national agenda. This study applies the social network analysis (SNA) as a tool for a proper understanding on how academicians in Malaysia RUs transfer the knowledge and collaborate with each other. Skewed toward the structural dimension of SNA, the visualization and tabulation of results indicate the knowledge transfer activities through research collaboration and co-authorship occurred extensively among researchers affiliated with Malaysian RUs.

Universiti Teknologi MARA
Abstract - Most ESL learners are generally comfortable when speaking in or as a group. However, they sometimes find (1) expressing their views, (2) using suitable vocabulary to express their opinions and (3) practising turn-taking in a group discussion challenging. Therefore, ‘What’s my line?’ (WML) – a prototype of a board game - was conceived to address these challenges. WML consists of topic cards, strips of vocabulary with varying scores attached, player cubes, vocabulary strips’ holder, a square board and a rule booklet. The topics and vocabulary for the game were selected through a series of discussions with experienced speaking examiners. Some of the topics included health, education and social issues. In piloting the game, thirteen groups from four classes (54 learners in total) played the game. After each game, learners remarked that the game was enjoyable as they had the language input from the vocabulary strips. The researcher also observed that learners participated actively in the game by trying to obtain more scores from the vocabulary strips. Thus far, most language games centred on grammar but with WML, learners learnt to discuss academic topics in a highly engaging board game with an element of quick thinking. Apart from improving ESL learners’ oral proficiency in terms of acquiring relevant vocabulary for some topics and learning how to take an active turn in a group discussion, this game could also perhaps enhance their confidence in speaking English – one of the important skills needed to survive in the 21st century’s education and career environments.

1Lecturer, General Studies Department, Polytechnic Sandakan Sabah 2Deputy Director of Internationalization and Promotion, College Poly-Tech Mara Bangi, Selangor
Abstract - Speaking skills were essential in learning ESL as many students equate being able to speak a target language as knowing the language and viewed learning the language as learning how to speak the language. However, when it came to teaching and learning of English in ESL classroom especially in Polytechnic Malaysia it was cleared that students faced a lot of difficulties with speaking skills. In addition to being too shy to speak, they are worried about making mistakes. They were afraid of criticism or losing face. In addition of not having sufficient opportunities to practice, they tended to use their mother tongue rather than the target language, even when they practice in class. Thus, this innovation was developed to find out if My-REAL can be used to enhance speaking skills among Polytechnic Malaysia students. The researchers developed a module based on Task Based Language Teaching (TBLT) Approach that involved 76 semester three students of Polytechnic Malaysia. The innovation finds out that My REAL was effective in enhancing speaking skills and a learner centred approach enabling learners to use their existing linguistic resource. This study may aspire and help ESL teachers that are teaching speaking skills to adapt some of the activities in the usual course book according to a more task-based approach. Hence, the students can participate in oral practice of target language effectively and in turn help them to improve their speaking abilities.

Abstract - Differentiation and anti-differentiation are the hearts of Calculus. Differentiation is an algorithmic process which can be achieved by analysing the function definition and apply the appropriate rules to each definition. However, anti-differentiation is not an algorithmic process and there are no specific rules for solving it. Although there are various integration techniques, it requires experience and many students fail to choose the appropriate technique for a given integrand. In this project, a mobile learning tool for solving anti-derivatives based on types of integrand is developed. Through this mobile learning tool, knowledge on anti-derivatives can be easily access at anytime and anywhere without time and place restrictions. It provides a more flexible and interesting learning process that can be experienced by the students. This tool aimed at optimizing student and educators’ engagement via mobile technology at the students’ preferences. Students and educators may benefit with this mobile learning tool as it is a mobile application which can boost both knowledge and attitude and thus contribute to higher performance in Calculus subject.

Abstract - The extant literature on culture suggests that people are culturally heterogeneous based on their region, religion, gender, generation and class. The established four cultural dimensions available in the literature differentiate national culture values into masculinity versus femininity, power distance, individualism versus collectivism and uncertainty avoidance2. In the Malaysian racial context, the first two value dimensions i.e. masculinity versus femininity and power distance define Malay cultural values as feminine (such as discretion and modesty) and high power distance. These effectively create unique personality traits among the Malay students in the educational setting which are shyness and introversion, as well as relatively wide social gap between teachers and learners. Accordingly, this necessitates the conventional teaching method to be less effective for Malay learners as learning styles has been identified in the literature to be culturally driven. Against this theoretical conjecture, we develop an alternative, non–conventional teaching method termed the “4-pitstop and 6-motion technique” which aims at removing students’ shyness by creating a relaxed learning environment whilst eliminating the power distance by letting students to teach their friends under the teacher’s oversight. Applying this revolutionalized teaching and learning technique to a relatively new and difficult course of Islamic Finance and Banking offered at the Faculty of Accountancy, Universiti Teknologi MARA, this novice teaching technique is expected to enhance the learning environment and hence, academic outcome in terms of improved students’ performance.

Abstract - Local Government Act 1976 is a legislation delineating the power of local authorities in Malaysia. Students who are taking this subject must understand the provisions of the Act as the Act deemed to be the backbones of the subject (PAD 320). Besides, local councilors also should have an in depth understanding towards the Act as they are the ones who formulate by-law in their respective local government. Although this chapter is very essential for students, the percentage of students who have opted to answer the related questions in the final examinations has declined over the semesters. It was found that uninteresting teaching materials are believed to be one of the factors leading to reduced interest in answering those questions. The provisions of the Act are too complicated to be understood and there are so many jargon words embedded in the Act. Therefore, Local Government Act 1976 Handbook is created in order to fulfill the gap of understanding among students and local councilors. This new learning material will help the students to be more interested to learn about this provision. In addition, this handbook is also offering benefits to the society especially for the people who are working in the local authorities.

Abstract - Consumption of animal protein in Indonesia continues to increase. Ministry of Agriculture (Kementan) in 2016 recorded the consumption needs of animal protein in Indonesia by 490,000 tons. The interest of people to consume rabbit meat makes rabbit breeding in Indonesia is growing and increasing efficiently. This idea arises from the problem of ammonia gas in the cage of rabbits derived from feces and urine rabbit so that it can cause health problems both in rabbits and rabbit breeders. Ammonia that has a corrosive nature also causes the cage to become rusty faster, in addition to existing ammonia in the cage rabbit cause disturbances in the respiratory system and at a certain level can cause death. The authors created S2-TSC Innovation of odor absorbers in rabbit cages based on odor sensor technology and activated carbon in an effort to reduce ammonia in rabbit cages so that rabbit cages can be free of ammonia gas. The S2-TSCworking system of ammonia in the enclosure will be detected by the gas sensor then at a certain limit of 150 ppm where the air condition of the cage there is a lot of ammonia then the monitor screen will light up then the blower will automatically light then the air containing the ammonia is absorbed by the blower and will Collecting on the S2-TSC pipe later in the pipe occurs the reaction of ammonia absorption by the activated carbon then air liberated ammonia will come out and back into the cage so that the cage condition will be free from ammonia.

Abstract - Forest fires are one of the major natural risk in Indonesia. It also happened in conservation area such as Merbabu National Park (TNGMB) in 2015. Flame tore through 2000 hectares of forest. Forest fires may seem harmless to those living far away, but such as persistent wildfires can have a devastating impact on environment and economy. It is impossible to control nature but is possible to map forest fire risk zone and thereby minimize the frequency of fire. Satellite data plays a vital role in identifying and mapping forest fire and in recording frequency at which different vegetation types/zones are effected. A geographic information system (GIS) can be used effectively to combine different forest-fire causing factors for demanding the forest fire risk zone map. This study aims to (1) knowing the ability of LANDSAT-8 multispectral satellite imagery to identify biophysical parameter of forest fire and (2) developing forest fire risk spatial model of map in southern slope of Mount Merbabu.Parameters that effect the fire such as biogeography, climatology and geomorphology were integrated within GIS. Sampling is done by purposive sampling. For these analysis ARCGIS software was used. The result of the research is a map of forest fire hazard on the southern slopes of merbabu in the rainy and dry seasons. The potential for forest fires is divided into 5 levels of forest fire vulnerability. The result of distribution model can be used as a guidance for forest management so that fire damage can be reduction.

Abstract - With the current implementation of the 21st Century Learning in our Malaysian Education system, it is an utmost necessity for teachers and students to implement the usage of Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) in teaching and learning English as a Second Language. Socrative, on the other hand offers both teachers and students to practise ICT while enhancing their English proficiency through interactive teaching and learning. Despite having implemented a variation of teaching and learning strategies, most Year One students are still having problems when it comes to linking different sounds into words. The aim of this study is to improve the Year One students’ ability to blend sounds and read the words independently and correctly using Socrative. The study has been carried out on a small group of low proficiency Year One students in a school from Putrajaya. Unlike any other conventional assessments, Socrative enables the teachers and students to have more autonomy in teaching and learning English vocabulary which is evident from the features such as options to have quizzes or activities timed either at teachers’ or students’ pace, immediate feedback for and from the students and many more. The outcome of the experiment was analysed based on students’ performance and questionnaire. The results indicate using Socrative has enhanced the students’ English literacy. The result from this study would also convince the teachers to be more confident in using the educational tools especially Socrative in improving students’ learning experience.
