Design of Personal Learning Environment Framework for Learner Autonomy

It has been at least more than 2 years since I have put my master's dissertation aside. I had submitted a paper about my research to a journal and I actually got some feedback. Due to my hectic schedule when I first started my career in academia, I have left my paper behind. One of... Continue Reading →

I did it!

I outdid myself this time. I completed my revised paper earlier than I expected. The outcome is satisfactory, at least to myself.
