One for all, all for one (o.O)

For ur information, due date for Maxis Bridging Community Competition is juz around da corner. It is on 6 of November 2007 after delaying for few weeks as requested by participants due to certain reasons. Welcome to November and bye bye to October..~:( So, for sure all the bloggers keep on improving as well as updating their blog to attract the judges (hehe...juz kidding!). Actually, the most part is have they even my grop achieved the project objectives that purposely to reach out the targetted community. In addition to that, deep in my heart, I appreciated for all the comments that we have received so far.

To make it clear, we dont even wanna promote any types of Internet Service Provider (ISP) to be implemented in UiTM Shah Alam. Some of the visitors of this blog simply said that we wanna implement the wireless project using Maxis as the middleware to access the Internet. Doesnt matter Maxis, Celcom or others. We already noticed that, students especially who stayed inside the campus have a problem while accessing even to have the Internet connection as well. Thus, by referring to the project goals, objectives or scope, we didnt stated any kind of ISP to be used in this project. We wanna see how far the wireless implementation will help the student performance through the project.

Yes we are using Maxis Broadband to implement the mini wireless zone in our project. Juz bear in mind that, 1K (thank you to MAXIS) is not ENOUGH to make it real!!!!!!! It is belongs to the high level management to make this project as a platform to further the REAL implementation. YES, for sure it takes huge amount of budget. So, thank u for asking guys. Dont judge the book by its cover. Read through first only then u will feel the excitement!! yeah!!!..

Best regards,

Project Analysis

For today's updates, we would like to show some details explaination of data analysis based on primary resource which is short questionnaire given to the respondent.

Figure 1: Sample of Short Questionnaire

Figure 2: Feedback Analysis

In addition to that, we have visualized the data gathered in the form of bar graph. Below are graphs obtained for each of the questions:

Graph 1: From Question 1 (Do you own a personnel computer / laptop?)

Graph 2: From Question 2 (Is your laptop having a built-in wireless application?)

From the first and second questions, we could say that most and all of the participants own a laptop themselves. Mostly today, each laptop will be equipped with built-in wireless application and devices ready instead of having to rely on external devices to install the wireless application. With this fact, these participants are already in the final phase of just only receiving the internet access anytime soon.

Graph 3: From Question 3 (If so, have you ever used the Maxis Wireless Community till today?)

Graph 4: From Question 4 (What do you think about the program above? Does it help you at all?)

From the third and fourth questions, it is obvious that majority of the participants have already been using the Maxis Wireless Community that are being implement. In fact they still are using that program till today as a medium for connecting to internet zone. This indicates that the program brings a lot of satisfaction and benefits to them as shown in question 4 where most of them says that the program is excellent and really helps them in their daily life in terms of internet access and facilities.

Graph 5: From Question 5 (In what aspect does the program above helps you? (You may thick more than 1 answer)

Graph 6:
From Question 6 (In your own opinion, does the implementation of Wireless Community here in UiTM really satisfy your need to have a good internet facility?)

From question number 5 and 6, it shows that with the implementation of the Wireless Community, these participants can use the internet effectively where majority of them choose that they dedicate most of their internet usage through academic times that includes surfing journals and articles, taking notes and get others academic resources.

As conclusion, most of them feel that the implementation of this program really and brings a lot of benefits to them where 26 participants chooses to say yes as their answers. Hence, we would rather say that, we have achieved the Project's MOV.

Project Progress - 19th Sept (Project Phases)

As a rule, Project Management Processes are concerned with defining and coordinating the activities and controls needed to manage the project. Because of that, we have adapted this framework as a guideline to run our project implementation throughout Project Life Cycle (PLC).

Diagram of Project Management Processes

1) Project Initiation:

We analyse what are the essential materials which will be needed for these events. We also list out which targeted places to start our mini prototypes. We also perform phase review (this is to ensure that our project is on track, we also prepared a back up plan for uncertainty risks).

2) Planning:

We plan our weekly activities, so we could organize, control and stick to our schedule. furthermore we have design our network architecture to establish the connectivity. Besides that, we plan to do survey regarding the benefitcials of internet toward the student perfomances.

3) Execution:

We execute all the activities that we have planned.

4) Closure:

We viewed the project completion by giving the result obtained from the survey in graphical form. Other than that do short interview randomly to ask for personal opinion on wireless facilities. We keep on updating our blog with the current activities and findings. As an extra effort, we have documented all the findings to propose to the higher level management to acknowledge them on the importances of wireless facilities in UiTM to be specific.

UiTM Wireless Community Project

Background of UiTM

Universiti Teknologi MARA(UiTM) is the pioneer institution of higher learning that is totally committed to producing a significant number of Bumiputera professionals who are skilled in a broad spectrum of industry. They contribute to increasing the national productivity and improving the livelihood and standard of living of the people of Malaysia.

UITM is moving towards a World Class university. In order to produce a world class graduates the students must have not only knowledge from the textbook but they have to widen the knowledge by knowing the world outside as well.

Current Problems

Currently, it is hard for the students to get an internet access within the campus. Internet facilities are only provided in the faculties and a few of student’s hostels. To provide internet access using cables will be costly and a lot of tasks have to been done to implement it. Besides it still limit the number of users to access it.

These circumstances not allowing the student to fully utilize the effectiveness and efficiency of the internet. Internet provided wider resources, more updated and inexpensive references compares to a book or printed resources. Other than that, it provides and online discussion whereby students can discuss, arguing and gained opinions from other users.

In addition, internet can also act as a communication tools. Making a phone call using a mobile phone will be expensive, but there an online service application that offer a pc to mobile call or pc to pc call with a lower rate and even. For example is skype and yahoo messenger. Besides that there also online free sms, video conferencing that are provided online. This allow the student to contact their families and friends without be afraid of the bills.

Missions / Goals

  • Increase the student learning effectiveness and student results by implement wireless zone (which allows unlimited geographical internet accessibilities)
  • Helps the students to enhance and deepen and gain knowledge using different approaches not only depending on the lecturer’s notes but they be able to get resources from the internet.
  • Changing the traditional printed textbook based to digital based such as online journals, articles, newspaper cutting and even digital books.
  • Encourage the students to keep in touch with their families and friends using the online services.

Project’s measurable organizational value

  • Produce computer literate graduates.
  • Producing world class standard graduates.
  • Creating a knowledgeable community who not only good academics area but also tailored with the current issues.
  • Students have a strong and great relationship with the family and friends.
How project MOV support the goal and strategies
  • By cultivating IT literate culture among university students.
  • By educating the students to enhance the use of ICT in their learning process and also to keep their knowledge up to date.
  • In creating a knowledgeable communities, implicitly, we improved the students’ soft skills.
  • By increasing the information technology literate among people, we will be able tighten the relationship bond between family and friends through the use latest ICT tools such as e-mails, video conferencing, instant messaging and online sms.

First and foremost, praise be to Allah, for enabling us to complete our Wireless Community Project without many difficulties. Special thanks and appreciation is given to our supervisor, for whom we are deeply interested, Cik Rashidah Bt Rawi, for her advice, criticism, guidance and brilliant ideas during the implementation of this project.

We also would like to express our gratitude to our beloved family for their encouragement, patience, support, financial support and sacrifice they have given us during the implementation of project. The most part is, thank you to Maxis for sponsoring the event. Without Maxis, we could not make the implementation the best we possibly can. Thank you once again for giving us the chance to serve the community.

Last but not least, we would like to express our gratitude to all friends as well as participants who had been supporting us from the beginning of the project. Only Allah S.W.T can repay your kindness.
