Currently, he is working as Senior Systems Administrator at Mzumbe University Mbeya Campus College.  He is registered for Master of Science in Computer Science at the University of Dar es Salaam in which he is also doing research on  Development of Mobile Portfolio to Enhance Blended Learning Experience as Desertation part of his course.

Research Abstract


Various higher learning institutions in Tanzania adopted various ICT to enhance learning and teaching experiences. Although blending traditional face to face and ICT will help to achieve numbers of benefits in learning environment e.g. expanding education access, enhance learning collaboration etc., but still there are various challenges that facing blended learning environment resulting in mixed learning experiences. Some of the challenges mentioned by scholars are slow internet speed and inefficient students support during online course delivery. To enhance learning experience in blended learning environment, various studies suggested the use of mobile technology to resolve these challenges but this count was not well considered by higher learning institutions in Tanzania. Taking advantage of rapid development of mobile technology and the higher rate of adoption of mobile devices in the higher learning institutions, this the study will establish requirements for development of mobile portfolio prototype and use the developed prototype to evaluate the usefulness of mobile portfolio in blended learning environment using Mzumbe university as the case study.

Case study Dar es salaam.


Deaths and injuries caused by pedestrian-motor vehicle collisions are serious problems in Tanzania. It is the major cause of death to children of aged 5-15.A major contributory factor in many of these accidents is a lack of road safety knowledge. The purpose of this work is to design and develop an interactive digital content to enhance road safety education to children in Tanzania. An Interactive digital content assessment will be measured to assess the effectiveness of the program in enhancing road safety education. This study is going to improve road safety skills to children in Tanzania.

Nyerere University of Agriculture and Technology (MJNUAT).  He is registered for Master of  Science in Computer Science at the University of Dar es salaam in which he is also doing research on Enhancing Parents Involvement in Students Academic Life Through Digital Diary.


Research Abstract:

In Tanzania, School-home communications relies heavily upon paper based diaries, letters, and report cards. These strategies for promoting parents involvement have barriers in their implementation. Letters, and report cards rarely arrives home and many are not showing up at all. An alternative to previous methods is face-to-face meeting which is also difficult to arrange and as such they are held to mark important events Mobile devices and the internet have become a main source of communication in today's society. Individuals are becoming more comfortable with using internet for many tasks that were formerly completed by other means. Through this available technology, teachers can establish another line of communication with the parents of their students. A digital diary that is carefully and purposefully constructed may be a great tool for information sharing between teacher and parents. This study will investigate the practicality as well as teachers and parents desire for such communication tool. The digital diary will also serve as the basis for future development of application intended to promote school-home communication specifically for Tanzania.

Khadija Mzava received B.Sc. with Computer Science from University of Dar-es-Salaam in 2014 and currently she is pursuing M.Sc. Health Informatics at the University of Dar-es-Salaam. She is also doing a research on Determinants of Nurses Intention to use e-learning for Informal Learning in Tanzania.

Abstract

Tanzania is among the countries striving to attain knowledgeable and skilled health workers who are capable of addressing health challenges facing its population. In a trend of years the number of health workers specifically nurses has been increasing however, their ratio per population size is still far below as per WHO recommendations. Due to the advancement of science and technology, there is a need to undertake further lessons to upgrade professional skills and knowledge. However in regard of nurses shortage in number, tight schedules sending them away from work place for further lessons is a challenge as will result into insufficient health services due to their absence. Therefore, to address such challenge, Amref Health Africa in support with Ministry of Health, Community, Development, Gender, Elders and Children (MOHCDGEC) has introduced e-learning mainly for nurses to upgrade their professional skills while they are still at their working place. However, despite its existence use of the e-learning is still a challenge as only 4.9% of the nurses are using the platform. Therefore, this study aims in investigating the determinants of nurses’ intention to use e-learning for informal learning in Tanzania. The findings of the study will be used to propose possible strategies to improve the nurses’ intention and adoption of the e-learning.
