1 TRANSFORMATION IN QUALITY HIGHER EDUCATION WITH RESPECT TO BLENDED LEARNING & FLIPPED LEARNING , Dr. Bhawna
Over the years, the vast development of video technologies has been incremental rise in new e-learning practices across all levels of the education spectrum and after COVID-19 the education was totally dependent on E-learning. While there are tons of e-learning models being tried around the globe, only two have seemingly managed to gain as much media attention and attraction in the education industry. Blended learning and flipped classroom are two alternative learning pedagogies that satisfy the twenty first century teach-savvy learners who would prefer active participation to passive listening while learning. Traditional classroom does not suit the present day generation of students who are not interested in print text books as the sole medium of learning. Western universities offer a no. of online courses that individual students across the world can complete according to their own pace. After COVID -19 it is necessary for India also to develop their E-learning. Although the terms blended learning and flipped classroom are presented with different meanings they actually have much in common. Blended learning is an educational strategy which combines the traditional classroom with online activities and finds its best application in flipped classroom where the responsibility for the teaching process is somehow transferred to that of the students who have direct access to the contents of the lessons before going to the school. This article explores the strengths and limitations of these approaches to teaching and learning of English as second language in the multilingual Indian context. Keywords: Blended Learning, Flipped Classroom.
2 E-SEARCH: AN INTEGRATED LIBRARY SYSTEM , Bernie S. Basas
A library is a place where books are collected and kept safely. Library also provides services such as the internet and computers.

The researcher used a descriptive method to assess the problem and needs of the end- user and Rapid Application Development in the development of this study. The researcher used Convenience Sampling Method and Purposive Sampling Technique and a total of one-hundred two respondents (102) were selected to participate. The researcher developed E-Search: An Integrated Library System to upgrade and improve the library transactions in terms of its services and functionality. The researcher used McCall’s Software Quality Model Criteria to determine the quality of the developed system, Computer System Usability Questionnaire, and Self-made Questionnaire to determine the acceptability in terms of functionality and user requirements. Based on the findings, the developed system is of average quality since it passed the different criteria. It also shows to be useful and provides satisfaction and ease of use to the users thus, Cadiz City Public Library agrees with the system usability.

4 STUDENT-CENTERED LEARNING IN GENERAL EDUCATION IN A PRIVATE UNIVERSITY IN MANILA: AN ANALYSIS , Rachelle Garcia, Dr. Renante Dante Tan, Dr. Josefina Florendo, Dr. Nemencio Santos
Transitioning from the traditional pedagogical norm to student-centered learning (SCL) is crucial to achieve the desired outcome. This is to produce graduates equipped with soft skills ready to face the life and global challenges of the 21 st century. This study provided the first tranche of evidence how the desired outcomes have been realized by the general education students through SCL. Opportunely, SCL was deemed to be harbinger of fundamental skills like collaboration, critical thinking, creativity, cognitive and self-directed learning, communication and digital literacy. In the light of positive results, SCL implementation has not reached its fullest efficiency more particularly in the environmental component to reap the best outcomes. Positive relationship findings between environmental, cognitive and behavioral component will provide avenue to hoist standard of SCL implementation. Hence, continuous exploration of other partakers, monitoring and quality improvement is recommended.

All communities and countries are vulnerable to disasters, both natural and man-made. India’s geo-climatic conditions as well as its high degree of socio-economic openness, makes it one of the most disaster prone country in the world to suffer very often from various natural disasters, namely drought, flood, cyclone, earth quake, landslide, forest fire, hail storm, locust, volcanic eruption, etc. Which strike causing a devastating impact on human life, economy and environment? Various disasters like earthquake, landslides, volcanic eruptions, fires, flood and cyclones are natural hazards that kill thousands of people and destroy billions of dollars of habitat and property each year. The rapid growth of the world's population and its increased concentration often in hazardous environment has escalated both the frequency and severity of natural disasters. With the tropical climate and unstable land forms, coupled with deforestation, unplanned growth proliferation non-engineered constructions which make the disaster-prone areas mere vulnerable, tardy communication, poor or no budgetary allocation for disaster prevention, developing countries suffer more or less chronically by natural disasters. Asia tops the list of casualties due to natural disaster. Among various natural hazards, earthquakes, landslides, floods and cyclones are the major disasters adversely affecting very large areas and population in the Indian sub-continent. The perception about disaster and its management has undergone a change following the enactment of the Disaster Management Act, 2005. Keywords: Disaster Management.

Taking a brief perspective on the general situation a couple of patterns are in progress. Our atmosphere on global just as local scale is intensely contaminated. The defensive ozone shield in the vigorously populated scopes of the northern half of the globe is diminishing twice quick as researchers suspected a couple of years back. The development of greenhouse gases will prompt critical changes in the climate designs sooner rather than later prompting global warming. The decimation of ozone layer and the further warming of the earth surface undermine cataclysmic outcomes, for example, emission of dangerous and tropical illnesses, disturbance of seas evolved way of life, ascending of ocean levels, submersion of numerous islands, softening of little land-based ice sheets, flooding in many low lying waterfront territories and reap misfortune and so on.
