Education for a person plays an anchor role in shaping an individual’s career. In order to achieve success in the academic path, care should be taken in choosing an appropriate course for the learners. This research work is based on the framework to design a course advisory system in an efficient way. The design approach is based on overlapping of learning analytics, academic analytics, and personalized systems. This approach provides an efficient way to build course advisory system. Also, mapping of course advisory systems into the reference model of learning analytics is discussed in this paper. Course advisory system is considered as enhanced personalized system. The challenges involved in the implementation of course advisory system is also elaborated in this paper. © Springer Science+Business Media Singapore 2017.

Organic food products are popular across Europe and United States of America. Asia is not far behind with India being a prominent player. The concept of organic food products is not new to Indian farmers. However, there is not much of a consumption taking place domestically despite the fact that India is one of the top 10 players in the world when it comes to the number of farmers engaged in organic cultivation. This study was conducted to understand the factors of consumer perception towards organic food products. The study covered both primary investigation and secondary literature review. Data was collected with the help of a structured questionnaire and was analyzed using percentage analysis and factor analysis to identify the factors of consumer perception.

Android operating system uses the permission-based model which allows Android applications to access user information, system information, device information and external resources of Smartphone. The developer needs to declare the permissions for the Android application. The user needs to accept these permissions for successful installation of an Android application. These permissions are declarations. At the time of installation, if the permissions are allowed by the user, the app can access resources and information anytime. It need not re-request for permissions again. Android OS is susceptible to various security attacks due to its weakness in security. This paper tells about the misuse of app permissions using Shared User ID, how two-factor authentications fail due to inappropriate and improper usage of app permissions using spyware, data theft in Android applications, security breaches or attacks in Android and analysis of Android, iOS and Windows operating system regarding its security. © 2017 IEEE.

In the modem world a huge concern among people is about their security\ People in the planning and execution focus much about proper security. This is a paper on the Mathematical aspects of some type of security enhancement. If a system is have various nodes and if there is availability of multiple types of security instruments, how will we ensure that every security is used to secure every node in an optimal way? We answer this question here by defining a graph theoretic model named Total k-Rainbow Domination. Here k stands for k types of security instruments. Easiest case is that of k types of cops. We define the optimal value as total k-rainbow domination number. Total k-rainbow domination numbers of certain graphs are calculated. © IAEME Publication.

The diametral path of a graph is the shortest path between two vertices which has length equal to diameter of that graph. In raising of structures with columns and beams in Civil Engineering, determining of diametral paths is of great significance. In this paper, the number of diametral paths is determined in complete graphs, complete bipartite graphs, wheels and their total graphs. © IAEME Publication.

Homogeneous and stoichiometric samples of InBi1−xSbx (x = 0, 0.1) crystals have been directionally solidified to explore their suitability for optoelectronic applications. Prior to the growth, the temperature distribution of an indigenously fabricated horizontal furnace has been analysed and optimized to conduct the growth experiments on the basis of phase diagram of the material. Systematic trials have been carried out for several growth runs (48, 60 and 72 h) by maintaining an axial temperature gradient of 4, 6 and 8 °C/cm with the aid of a temperature controller mechanism. The key parameters governing the growth mechanism, composition, phase, and structure of the grown InBi1−xSbx crystals were investigated via X-ray diffraction, scanning electron and atomic force microscopy, Raman and Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy. The presence of secondary phases was ruled out and the average congruent melting points of InBi and InBi0.9Sb0.1 samples were confirmed as 109.43 and 121.13 °C respectively, by employing differential scanning calorimetric analysis. Investigations on the optical, electrical and mechanical properties of these materials were carried out. Vickers microhardness was found to increase with the Sb incorporation. The average optical band gap computed from the IR transmission spectra was found to be 0.165 eV. The results obtained promise that InBi1−xSbx crystals grown by directional solidification are favourable candidates than those grown by other melt methods. © 2016 Springer Science+Business Media New York

Indium selenide (γ-In2Se3) crystals have been grown by the closed tube sublimation process in the absence of seed crystals and chemical transporting agents. The composition, structure and morphology of the samples grown under different vacuum conditions were examined by energy dispersive analysis, X-ray diffraction, and scanning electron microscope. Structural features of the crystals obtained in a vacuum of 10−3 mbar exhibited a few reflections not belonging to γ phase, whereas X-ray diffraction spectra of the crystals deposited under a vacuum of 10−6 mbar revealed evidence of sharp peaks with high intensities of γ-In2Se3 crystalline phase. When growth runs were performed for 72 h, voids were observed on the surface whereas for a duration of 120 h, platelet crystals were obtained. Optical properties of these samples were investigated using the FT-IR and photoluminescence spectroscopy. The average transmittance of the platelets in the visible and near infrared region of solar spectrum was found to be ∼81% and an optical band gap of ∼2.05 eV was computed from the transmission spectrum. Photoluminescence spectra of the grown In2Se3 crystals recorded at room temperature using an excitation laser of wavelength 355 nm showed a peak in the near band edge emission (NBE) corresponding to an energy of 2.01 eV. Under an illumination power of 12 mW/cm2, the photocurrent increased linearly with applied voltage and the dark current was found to be ~2.5×10−9 A for 10 V. These results suggest that the as-grown γ-In2Se3 platelets crystallized from vapor deposition, possess superior optoelectronic properties than the other phases for solar cell applications. © 2016 Elsevier B.V.

Ceria (0.5, 1 and 2 mol%) doped titania nano catalysts were prepared by combustion synthesis method, using titanium isopropoxide as the starting material. The prepared catalysts were characterized by X-ray diffraction (XRD), Energy dispersive X-ray analysis (EDX), Scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and Infra red spectroscopy (FTIR). Total acidity of the prepared catalysts were determined by temperature programmed desorption of ammonia (TPD - NH3). XRD pattern of 1% ceria doped titania obtained by calcinations at 873 K indicated that the samples were crystalline with a mixture of anatase and rutile phase. No peaks corresponding to cerium oxide were observed XRD patterns indicating that the amount of cerium is negligible on the surface of titania catalyst. The photo catalytic activity was evaluated for the degradation of methylene blue (MB) under visible light irradiation. The degradation rates of MB on cerium doped TiO2 samples were higher than that of pure TiO2. The introduction of structural defects (cationic ceria dopant) into the titania crystal lattice leads to the change of band gap energy. As a result, the excitation energy is expanded from UV light of anatase TiO2 to visible light for ceria doped titania. © 2016 Elsevier Ltd.
