      Nasim Matar, " Faculty Approach Toward E-learning Using Social Media and Mobile Devices: Outlining Advantages and Concerns " , "International Journal of Advanced Research in Computer Science and Software Engineering ",Vol.5,No.4, International Journal of Advanced Research in Computer Science and Software Engineering , India, 10/25/2015 Abstract:
      this study is concerned with faculty approach towards incorporating social media and mobile technology in learning. Different solutions have been provided for embedding educational technologies within educational context, and many tools are providing different services for managing students and learning process. The use of social media and mobile technology as a newly adopted technology are shifting the concern and use from traditional learning content and management systems (LCMS) to a more flexible and wider social and mobile platform. This study seeks to identify the current status and challenges of adopting social media and mobile technologies by faculty members in Jordanian universities. The findings of this research study are believed to help in considering the use and incorporation of social media , web technologies and policies in future consideration within educational context.

      Nasim Matar, " Evaluating E-Learning System Use by CBAM-Stages of Concern Methodology in Jordanian Universities " , "The World of Computer Science and Information Technology Journal (WSCIT).",Vol.5,No.4, The World of Computer Science and Information Technology Journal (WSCIT)., USA, 01/01/2015 Abstract:
      This paper presents the use of a new approach towards evaluating the use of e-learning system by faculty members in Jordanian universities. Evaluating the use of any system is aimed towards providing a better understanding for the needs, challenges and opportunities that are expected from using such systems. E-learning as a supportive method for education in Jordanian universities has been available since 2003 [1]. Different studies have provided an assessment for the use of e-learning in Jordan using different tools many of which have been found unstandardized tool for performing the evaluation. Some of those tools managed to give significant results, while others lacked the systematic approach and the use of appropriate methodology. The Concern Based Adoption Model (CBAM) Framework has been created in order to provide 3 different tools to assess the use of innovation tools used within educational context. CBAM framework is widely used in America, Canada and parts of Europe, and this tool has not been used in any research related to Jordan or e-learning in Jordanian universities. This study is the first study to use and provide valuable outputs for assessing the use of e-learning in Jordanian Universities.

      Nasim Matar, " Evaluating E-portfolio System Use within Educational Context " , "The World of Computer Science and Information Technology Journal (WSCIT)",Vol.5,No.3, The World of Computer Science and Information Technology Journal (WSCIT), USA, 09/08/2015 Abstract:
      This paper presents a new approach for setting criteria towards evaluating e-portfolio use within educational context. The urge for considering e-portfolio systems in current educational context is becoming more vivid, as many systems are developed to address the need for gathering artifact used within educational context. The wide development of web 2.0 technologies has given the opportunities for many e-portfolio systems to emerge and provide different services and functionalities that are used for different aims and objectives that are not related to educational use. The need for differentiating the offered services and functionalities is becoming necessity as different educational establishments have been found using e-portfolios that are not designed for educational purposes. This study, managed to present six different e-portfolio systems that are found suitable for educational purposes, and have set the criteria for differentiations that will present the most suitable e-portfolio system within educational context. Those same criteria can be used with any newly designed e-portfolio system, and they can be looked at as a guide map for selecting the most appropriate e-portfolio system.
