We have developed a prototype system of integrating immersive elements from Massive Multiplayer Online Games (MMOG) and systematic principles of Instructional Design (ID) Methodology into Mobile learning (m-learning), in order to counter m-learning's preceding problems of low motivational level towards learning and weak standards to deliver the learning environment. Experiments were conducted on the prototype system with volunteered students to produce notable results for further analysis. This paper reports on the comparison of academic test results obtained between an existing m-learning system and our developed proposed system, conducted in a real-life classroom scenario.

Case study - Groundwater monitoring around hydraulic fracturing sites in Colorado
Hydraulic fracturing or ‘Fracking’ has become more prevalent and controversial in the US in recent years. More than 90 percent of new wells in the US are completed using this method. While it is endorsed by some as a game-changer that promises an increase in the nation’s economy due to energy independence, job creation, and lower energy prices; others are calling for a temporary moratorium or a complete ban on fracking due to environmental concerns.The US government has identified and employed...
Flow Rate Measurement in Full Pipes Using the Transit Time Method
Particularly in large diameters the relevance of water volume measurement is growing. The challenge with cooling water or fresh water processes is to generate accurate flow recordings or to document and to control individual consumptions and withdrawal quantities. Flow detection, however, particularly in large diameters is highly demanding. In such cases the transit time measurement thanks to its high flexibility as a reliable and cost-efficient measurement system is literally made for permanent flow metering. Sec...
UXO discrimination using time domain electromagnetic induction
IntroductionAn explosive ordnance is a munition that is either launched or fired with the intent of detonation at a specified target. An unexploded ordnance (UXO) is an explosive ordnance that, due to some malfunction, remains undetonated. As a result, the ordnance can be found at the ground surface, partially buried, or buried at a depth of up to 8 m beneath the surface. Practical and cost-effective strategies for remediation require both detection of possible targets and the ability to discriminate between UXO...
Instek LTM Probes provide faster response times and superior pulp level monitoring
Do you need reliable signals with accurate pulp level detection, low maintenance costs AND simultaneously increase your recoveries? Instek Control LTM products provide superior pulp-level interface monitoring through the benefits of conductance technology and advanced digital signal processing logic. Ideal for monitoring froth or foam covered process cells, tanks and sumps, the LTM probe precisely monitors slurry and pulp interfaces, providing improved level measurement — increasingprocess control,oftentimes...
Innova`s race against time; the sonic mystery
What began as a puzzling mystery in the semi-arid scrub-land of Colorado, ended as a race against time for the acoustic specialists of INNOVA (formerly ATCO Noise Management). The Olathe Compression Station, operated by Kinder Morgan’s TransColorado GasTransmission, is located on a plateau in isolated,canyon-cut Colorado countryside, three kmfrom the nearest residences. Working wellwithin approved guidelines from both theBureau of Land Management and the FederalEnergy Regulatory Commission (FERC), thestation...
