The field of education has undoubtedly been affected by the penetrating influence of information and communication technology, characterized by improved access to the internet, and the increasing use of computing devices. However, education in Africa and specifically Nigeria still faces a 21st Century challenge in making education available and accessible to all. As a means of responding adequately to this huge unmet demand for education in Nigeria, this paper proposes a Synchronous Learning System which could be used in Nigerian Universities as a way of alleviating challenges like overcrowded classrooms and lack of adequate human resources. It presents a functional framework to exemplify services which could be offered in the proposed virtual learning system to depict the peculiarity of an instructor-led classroom within the Nigerian academic context, an operational design which describes how a custom e-learning portal could be integrated with an Open source Video Conference server to facilitate learning in virtual classrooms. Furthermore, it proposes a virtual Learning Network architecture to show how both onsite and remote students could optimize quality network access in realizing these electronic learning services. © 2014 IEEE.

This papers focuses solely on the development of linear regression model as a tool for visualization in order to determine various average periods of oscillations of pendulum with specific mass of ball which is 8.30 gramme. The essence of this is to determine the effect of using different weight of ball of pendulum on oscillations with varying in length and time of oscillations. With the model that was developed the performance of LABWARE and pendulum oscillation to be specific can easily be monitor and this helped to generate various values of data as reusable object with help of MATLAB program that was developed. Graphical representation of objects as one of visualization Techniques made determination of periods to be determine by varying length and time. This model, is very reliable and accurate, compare to the traditional method in which the breakdown of LABWARE can have major effect on the oscillations and accuracy of the results.
