      Abstract: Techno-Aide Google Classroom for Learning English: Prospects & Challenges Google Classroom is a technology aided online learning tool developed by Google which enables both the teachers and learners to fit into ‘beyond the classroom’ learning in an innovative way. This research paper tries to shed light on the prospects and challenges of using Google classroom for learning English at the tertiary level education in Bangladesh. For finding out the prospects and challenges, both English language learners’ and teachers’ perception on the ground of the four language skills- Listening, reading, Writing and Speaking have been studied. The research has been conducted following the quantitative method. An electronic survey was distributed among the students and teachers using Google Form for collecting and comparing responses. The prospect includes how Bangladeshi university students and teachers sense and experience this online tool to stay in touch, as well as develop and manage their work to learn English efficiently. Alongside the common challenges faced by the users (both learners and teachers) this research tries to trace out some technical shortcomings of Google classroom that can be eradicated by Google to turn Google classroom into more user-friendly platform for learning.

  • Mobile Learning: An Approach to Improve the Quantity of Educational
           Attainment in Conflict Hit Areas Like J&K

      Abstract: Mobile Learning: An Approach to Improve the Quantity of Educational Attainment in Conflict Hit Areas Like J&K The days are gone when mobile was considered a big distraction in the study. We can make best use of mobile in achieving educational attributes by improving both quantity and quality of education and this approach is simply called mobile learning. This paper presents an outlook of making best use of mobile learning to increase the educational attainment, especially in conflict hit areas, where strikes, curfew and processions, demonstrations become the hurdle in the normal working hours in the educational system. Here we have taken an example of Jammu and Kashmir, where the security climate is vulnerable from last more than thirty years and peace is a major concern at present. In this situation a fear among the student community to go schools has risen to a level, which ultimately affects the education system badly. In most of the cases, the syllabus is not completed in the schools due to shortage of effective class hours. To tackle this situation, the mobile learning could be the best remedial measure to address this issue.

  • An Experimental Study on Ground Improvement by Application of Fly Ash and
           Lime on Clayey and Sandy Soil

    • Authors: Pinak Ray, Subham Roy; Subham Roy

      Abstract: Construction on locally available clayey soil is often problematic due to its swelling and shrinkage nature. Pavements are most affected as the upthrust due to regional swelling of clayey soil during monsoon season and shrinking during dry season causes unwanted cracks in the pavement. As a consequence, the pavement gets damaged. In places having extensive deposit of clayey soil, soil replacement becomes time-consuming and uneconomical. Hence the clayey soil to be considered as subgrade needs to be pre-treated. Fly ash, an industrial waste can be used for such treatment. To improve the engineering properties of on-site available clayey soil and sandy soil with lime and fly ash was studied. Based on the results obtained from experiments the suitability of fly ash and lime to be considered as additives to improve local clayey and sandy soil properties has been analyzed. It was observed that the on the addition of fly ash within 40-60% range can be satisfactorily used to replace the local clayey soil and fly ash percentage within 20-40% can be used to replace the local sand. Lime content in the range of 4-8% can be satisfactorily used in both in situ available soil and local sand with fly ash mixtures for the improvement of strength in terms of shear strength as well as CBR value.
