Abstract Background The current study aimed to evaluate the previously unexplored correlation between undergraduate medical students’ attendance during their surgical clerkship and their academic performance. It also aimed to explore any difference in the attendance rate between male and female students and whether this difference, if present, affects the academic performance. Methods A retrospective descriptive cross-sectional study has been conducted on 331 undergraduate medical students during their surgical clerkships at the College of Medicine and Medical Sciences (CMMS) at Arabian Gulf University (AGU), Bahrain from September 2018 to June 2020. Results There was a positive statistically significant correlation between students’ attendance during surgical clerkship and academic performance (r = 0.360, P <  0.01). Mean attendance rate was greater in each increasing category of academic performance: 47.95% in the weak category (less than 65%, n = 42), 57.62% in the good performance category (65% to less than 75%, n = 108), 67.82% in the very good performance category (75% to less than 85%, n = 126), 83.16% in the excellent performance category (85% and above, n = 55). The mean attendance rate of male students was 59.76% (SD = 25.73), compared to 66.92% (SD = 24.30) in the female students. T-test indicated that the difference between the mean attendance of the two groups of the students (male, female) was statistically significant (t = 2.483, p <  0.05). On the other hand, the difference between the mean academic performance for the two groups of students, male & female, (t = 0.284, p = 0.777) was not statistically significant. Conclusions Our study showed a significant relationship between undergraduate medical students’ attendance during their surgical clerkship and their academic performance. Further studies are needed to stratify this correlation according to clinical and theoretical teaching activities. No significant difference was observed in academic performance between female and male students.

&lt;p&gt;&lt;strong&gt;INAF &lt;em&gt;Online Lab&lt;/em&gt;&lt;/strong&gt; is the name of the project born within EduINAF (the online magazine of the Italian Institute of Astrophysics) during the Covid-19 pandemic and the subsequent rearrangement of the outreach and teaching activities normally carried out in person. These online laboratories are an example of how to virtually take by the hand those same young people with whom only a year ago it was possible, and indeed natural, to interact live. From their schools or homes, the students are guided through the activity by an experienced operator, and take on the role of astronomers while building, observing, learning and wondering about the great mysteries of space. The four online laboratories currently active have been optimized to be perfectly usable during science festivals in an interactive way and at practically no cost.&lt;/p&gt; &lt;p&gt;Throughout the presentation, we will describe the project and its possible applications and evolutions, with some examples to be shown to the audience.&lt;/p&gt;

With the development of computer technology and related disciplines, the application of multimedia technology to education is rapidly becoming the mainstream technology of educational technology. This article mainly researches the construction of college sports network multimedia teaching platform system. The physical education management module is the main module in this sports network teaching platform. Therefore, the physical education management module is tested in the testing process. Each module adopts a black box test method. In the system analysis, by dicing, slicing, rotating, and other operations on the data warehouse constructed with the student's performance data, the data are observed from different angles, which is convenient for the teacher to understand the teaching effect. This article adopts the method of grade evaluation to finally determine a number of indicators that are not contradictory and nonrepetitive. The end of a teaching unit or a series of teaching activities must be evaluated at different levels. The biggest difference between process evaluation and summative evaluation is that it not only attaches importance to objective measurement and quantitative analysis but also attaches importance to the subjective judgment and qualitative analysis of both teaching parties, which requires a combination of the two. The test environment of the system is to simulate the real operating environment of the system. A cloud computing service platform is built in the school's central computer room to provide services such as dynamic resource scheduling and dynamic load balancing. There are very few schools that use college sports networks to develop educational functions, only reaching 7.8% of the total number of campus networks. The results show that the multimedia teaching platform greatly promotes the teaching effect of college physical education.

The paper identifies the perceptions of first-year undergraduate students from the Faculty of Physical Education and Sports in Galati on online teaching activities, dominant and needful in the current pandemic context. The questionnaire used contains 23 items and was structured based on four distinctive factors, namely attractiveness, accessibility, motivation and efficiency; it was applied after the winter session of the academic year 2020–2021. The values of the internal consistency coefficient Cronbach’s alpha indicate for the four mentioned factors a high fidelity for the measurements of the investigated features. The results of the 147 completed questionnaires allowed the definition of the independent variables sex (boys and girls) and environment of origin (rural and urban) the identification of their influence on the scores of each item (dependent variables) by using the statistical technique MANOVA (multivariate and univariate analysis), besides the values of F and the corresponding significance thresholds; the magnitude of the effect, expressed by partial eta squared (Ƞ2p), was also calculated. Even if the averages of item scores differ between sexes and backgrounds, the differences noted are in few cases significant: attractiveness and socialization for those in urban areas; participation in activities and effective involvement for girls; technical deficiencies, platform logging and weak computer skills for those in rural areas; and an increase in free time for girls and students in urban areas. The study undertaken allows the identification of the favorable aspects and the shortcomings of online teaching activities, these being the premises for optimizing the teaching process in the following stages.

This study aims to analyze and explain how the implementation of distance learning during the COVID-19 pandemic by first graders teacher. How the learning process  was held, what information and communication technology was used, how was the preparation, what obstacles are faced by the respondents. The research method used a case study of descriptive qualitative approach with a phenomenological paradigm. The research subject is the first grade teacher of SDIT Al Iman Bintara. Data collection techniques using observation and questionnaires conducted online. Data analysis used descriptive statistics, with stages of data reduction, data presentation and conclusions. The result of the research is that the implementation of distance learning at SDIT Al Iman Bintara is running well according to the policies and technical implementations made by the school. The most widely used information and communication technologies during distance learning are Zoom, Edmodo and WhatsApp. The use of information and communication technology makes it easier for respondents in teaching activities, because previously respondents had attended special training from schools. Although 100% of respondents are used to using it every day, there are still obstacles that occur, such as internet signals that are not supported (disconnected/disappeared) or signal struggles with fellow teachers at school; internet packages for educators from the government that are not enough to use for one month when teaching from home; the material presented is less understandable by students, especially when there is a signal problem, which makes students no longer want to continue learning even though the signal is smooth again

Introduction. Oral communication is perhaps the most important skill while learning a foreign language. The conventional English teaching method that is applied at the different educational levels based on grammar and writing, does not allow the development of the necessary communication skills. The communicative teaching of language has been the subject of this research, in which its effectiveness has been treated using different resources and skills. Objective. This research aims to apply communicative language teaching activities to determine its effectiveness in the development of the speaking skill, in the second-year of Bachelor Education in a secondary institution in Riobamba, Ecuador. Methodology. A field, descriptive, prospective, longitudinal, quasi-experimental and quantitative research was carried out. The universe was made up of 94 students at that level. The sample equivalent to the universe was organized into two groups, one experimental and one control, with 47 students each. A diagnostic examination and a final test were applied for both groups, which during the time between both tests, followed different teaching-learning approaches. In the control group the traditional method was applied and in the experimental group, the communicative approach to language teaching. Results. The results showed that although both groups improved their performance in speaking, in the experimental group the increase in speaking ability was greater than in the control group. Conclusion. It was concluded that the application of communicative language teaching activities was effective in development of the speaking skill.

Latar Belakang : Istirahat dan tidur merupakan kebutuhan dasar yang dibutuhkan oleh semua orang. Jika kebutuhan tidur tidak adekuat maka kualitas tidur seseorang akan menjadi buruk, kualitas tidur yang buruk dapat mengakibatkan gangguan keseimbangan fisiologis dan psikologis. Mahasiswa kesehatan yang tinggal diasrama atau biasa disebut dengan mahasiswa santri, kegiatan pengajarannya dihitung 1 kali 24 jam. Hal ini akan menyita waktu tidur mahasiswa santri dan mempengaruhi jam tidur serta menurunnya konsentrasi belajar dan prestasi akademik mahasiswa. Solusi yang tepat untuk meningkatkan kualitas tidur mahasiswa santri di asrama adalah melakukan terapi komplementer yang mudah dilakukan secara mandiri.Terapi tersebut ialah terapi wudhu dan aromaterapi. Kedua terapi tersebut menimbulkan efek rileks pada fisiologis dan psikologis pada mahasiswa, sehingga membantu untuk meningkatkan kualitas tidur. Tujuan dari penelitian ini adalah Untuk mengetahui Perbandingan Terapi Wudhu dan Aroma terapi terhadap kualitas tidur Mahasiswa keperawatan semester V STIKes Surya Global Yogyakarta Metode Penelitian: Penelitian ini menggunakan metode penelitian kuantitatif dengan desain penelitian pre- Eksperimen dengan menggunakan rancangan One Group Pretest-Posttest.Jumlah populasi sebanyak 148 mahasiswa semester V angkatan 2018 di STIKes Surya Global Yogyakarta. Sampel diambil dengan teknik random sampling sebanyak 40 responden  terbagi dalam dua kelompok yaitu 20 mahasiswa kelompok terapi wudhu dan 20 mahasiswa kelompok aromaterapi. Analisis data menggunakan uji non parametric Wilcoxon dan mann whitney karena data tidak berdistribusi normal. Hasil Penelitian: Hasil analisis menunjukkan bahwa terdapat penurunan nilai pre post yang signifikan pada kelompok eksperimen dengan nilai p value <0,05 (p=0,000) dan tidak terdapat perbedan yang signifikan nilai delta kelompok terapi wudhu dan aromaterapi dengan nilai p value >0,05 (p=0,883). Kesimpulan : Terapi wudhu dan Aromaterapi sama- sama memiliki efek terhadap kualitas tidur sehingga tidak ada perbedaan yang signifikan antara terapi wudhu dan aromaterapi terhadap kualitas tidur Mahasiswa Semester V STIKes Surya Global Yogyakarta ABSTRACT Background: Rest and sleep are basic needs needed by everyone. If the need for sleep is inadequate, a person's sleep quality will be poor, poor sleep quality can lead to disturbances in physiological and psychological balance. Health students who live in dormitories or commonly referred to as santri students, have their teaching activities counted once 24 hours. This will take up the sleep time of the students and affect the hours of sleep and decrease the concentration of learning and student academic achievement. The right solution to improve the sleep quality of students in the dormitory is to do complementary therapies that are easy to do independently. These therapies are ablution and aromatherapy therapy. Both therapies have a relaxing physiological and psychological effect on students, thereby helping to improve sleep quality. The purpose of this study was to determine the comparison of ablution therapy and aromatherapy to the quality of sleep of the fifth semester nursing students of STIKes Surya Global Yogyakarta. Methods: This study used a quantitative research method with a pre-experimental research design using the One Group Pretest-Posttest design. The total population was 148 fifth semester students of class 2018 at STIKes Surya Global Yogyakarta. Samples were taken by random sampling technique as many as 40 respondents divided into two groups, namely 20 students of the ablution therapy group and 20 students of the aromatherapy group. Data analysis used non-parametric Wilcoxon and Mann Whitney tests because the data were not normally distributed. Results: The results of the analysis showed that there was a significant decrease in the pre post value in the experimental group with p value <0.05 (p = 0.000) and there was no significant difference in the delta value of the ablution therapy and aromatherapy groups with p value> 0, 05 (p = 0.883). Conclusion: Ablution therapy and aromatherapy both have an effect on sleep quality, so there is no significant difference between ablution therapy and aromatherapy on sleep quality for the fifth semester students of STIKes Surya Global Yogyakarta.
