The expansion and dominance of technology is increasing globally one of which is the influence of e-learning in educational systems. E-learning is any electronic supported learning either with or without infusing the ICT facilities in the current conventional learning methods be it traditional or active learning. The aim of this study is then to evaluate the influence of e-learning on the academic performance of year II mathematics students in Jimma University, in basic algebra course (fundamental concept of algebra).

Electroluminescence from Silicon and Germanium Nanostructures
Author(s): 
Getnet Melese and Ghoshal S. K.

Silicon (Si) and germanium (Ge) have an indirect band gap transitions; however when they are miniaturized to nanometer scale, the energy gap between the highest occupied molecular orbital (HOMO) and the lowest unoccupied molecular orbital (LUMO) increases, and hence the transition changes to direct due to confinement. In this paper we explain photoluminescence (PL) and electroluminescence (EL) and formulate models to study electroluminescence from Si and Ge nanostructures.
