  • Integration of multiple comments based on aspect using text summarisation technique   Order a copy of this article
    by Nimesh Yadav 
    Abstract: This research paper focuses on integrating multiple comments into one salience comment for better understanding. This paper concentrated on most cared aspects from the multiple comments. The most cared aspects considered here are price, screen, battery, colour, and then assigning these aspects as our keyword for defining the set of explicit comments. After defining the explicit comment set, this paper used the text summarisation technique to summarise the comments based on aspects. Aspect-based multiple comment integration (AMCI) framework gives two unique features, first it integrates multiple comments into one salience comment, and second salient comments include low redundancy with summarised comments. The goal of this study is to improve the accuracy of the current state of the art models, and we have used ROUGE scores to compare proposed model with other models. Compared to state-of-the-art (SOTA) models, ours performs better on some ROUGE metrics, as evidenced by automatic evaluation findings.
    Keywords: multiple comment integration; text summarisation; text analysis; performances; brand-level multiple comment integration; product-level multiple comment integration.

  • Integration of blended learning approaches in modern classrooms: a quantitative study   Order a copy of this article
    by Muhammad Mujtaba Asad, Pireh Mahar, Antonio-José Moreno-Guerrero, Prathamesh Churi 
    Abstract: This quantitative research paper investigates the integration of blended learning practices during the current pandemic, focusing on challenges and benefits in the academic context. Conducted at the Public School of Sukkur, Pakistan, the study employs a quantitative research approach with a survey research design, distributing 78 questionnaires among upper secondary grade students. Utilising descriptive data analysis, the results are examined based on gender. The findings highlight that blended learning, amid the pandemic, facilitated learning processes and increased interaction among student-teacher and peer groups. Students expressed a preference for continued involvement in blended learning. The research sheds light on the impact of the pandemic on Pakistans education system, emphasising the need for educators, parents, and students to adapt to a blended instructional approach. The study underscores the importance of clear instruction and online engagement, serving as a valuable resource for future research on parental and student perspectives in the context of pandemic-induced blended learning.
