PhD. Student
Supervisor: Prof. Dr. Alan Oxley
Department of Computer and Information Sciences
Universiti Teknologi PETRONAS
Tronoh, 31750 Perak Malaysia The aim of this research is
to address how Mash-up can
be used in Higher Education to
tackle problems and
exploit opportunities. This involves formulating a suitable procedure
for Mash-up development, in
each of the application
area. Aim Research Question Research Activities Understand the culture and processes in HE. Creating a tutorial plan for web2.0 Architecture student in UTP in order to help us to work out how best to assist students and staff to create their own Mash-ups. Developing a
Mash-ups application for UTP IRC as a services and assess the effectiveness
of the Mash-ups in disseminating
information Understand data Mash-up tools and techniques. (cc) image by nuonsolarteam on Flickr Conduct a suitable
way of the data collection
in the University Teknologi PRETRONAS based on the
three focus areas in this
work. 1-What areas of activity in HE could be improved with the introduction of Mash-ups? 2-How would a Mash-up be integrated into the teaching, learning, or research practices of users? 4-Should we train users to develop their own Mash-ups? Are we going to use currently available Mash-up editors or should we develop our own? 3-Can we develop Mash-ups that are effective at disseminating information? From different
perspectives Mash-up Definition

Possible ways and issue associated
with mash-up Development in HE Results Research Activity Teaching & Learning Problems Statement Finding from the literature, there are numerous of concerns regarding the information integration, as found that many Higher Education environments have a diverse system across their locations, the system could have been diverse due to the reason that, each section within the Higher Education required a certain features and functions that might be suitable to them.

This diversity causes a great issue in the data integrity across the Higher Education environment.

As highlight in the[17], many IT managers are failing to make a successful integration when it come to the Higher Education, another studies of[18] state the few concern in regards to the integration as well, while the[19]emphases in the integrated information system for Higher Education and its issues, in addition to that [20] focus on the information foundational and strategic planning which the basics is about the integrations issues and its process.

With all this the research stands to look even further in the above issues. •To identify the principal areas in Higher Education suited to the application of Mash-up’s. To identify
the key factors contributing to effective Mash-up usage for each of the principal
area. To undertake a
case study in each of the principal areas so as to assess the importance of each key factor. Sub Objectives Hypothesis in Library Area Hypothesis in Teaching and Learning Area Hypothesis in Research Activity Area Research Hypothesis The presentation of the hypothesis based on the three focused area. Proposed Architecture for Mash-up Development Requirement Library Key Success Problems Statement •The information are divers across the Web sources, these could be internal Web source or external. Since that this section is dealing with the date from different sources then there are needs for the integration of this data.

•The library should be a central depository for the information resource, however, before the library function is completed there must have enough collection of information resources from inside and outside; these information resources need to be collected and integrated in one system function. As now the current library system does not provide such function,

•In some aspect, there has been a system with the integration function, which required the license and subscription, while the customization may not be possible.

•As for education as concern, it is preferable to be using a non-commercial product some time there is provision for academic version, e.g. Learning Management System (LMS) is of two types, commercial and non-commercial LMS. The widely used LMS today is the one which is open source like Moodle, blackboard LMS is less used by the academicians due to the reason it is the commercialized LMS product.

•For some in research activity they may find it difficult to collect some sourced data, due to the diversity of this data across the Web sources.

•Development requirement is needed to make such centralized system with the integration function, e.g. IBM Cast Iron, Microsoft Biztalk Server. For all this, there are needs for system requirement which involved hardware as well as the software requirements. •To design a conceptual framework for Mash-up at Higher Education and Mash-up development procedures which can be used in Higher Education; one procedure per identified principal area.
