  Based on the authors experience in applying different approaches of active learning and student-centered teaching, the main problem that prevented the achievement of the full advantages of these approaches is the lack of motivation of students for self-centered learning. A new model for a student-centered learning is presented in this work. This model is of teaching integrative thinking, based on existing models of creativity and synthesis. In this model, the student is put at the heart of a bigger learning process that includes instructors, specialists and the public. Usually students who are in the final year of their study will be the target of the application of this model as a part of a capstone course or final year project. This model promotes the research and thinking skills of the students as well as the gained motivation of self-learning as a result of being in contact with the specialists who might be their potential future employers. A proto-type web-based system based on this model was developed. Although it is applied on a sample of students from the Biology department, the system is readily expandable to any number of other disciplines without any complications or programming overheads. The results achieved from the application of this model were very encouraging.

  The great advancement in computer architecture and cache memory design and technology had a considerable influence on the way computer architecture was taught in universities. This requires students to be able to visualize the detailed activities that take place within a computer processor and its interaction with memory system. Computer simulators could effectively be used to enhance the understanding and comprehension of cache memory operation. The main objective of this project was to design and implement a computer simulator that was used as an educational tool. This paper presents design specifications, implementation and the functional and structural components of this simulator. This allows students understand the concepts and theory of the computer hardware topics by constructing and verifying knowledge, testing and comparing several different configurations and memory access. Although there was a large number of computer simulators in the market, this simulator differs in the way it contains a specially designed assembler that feeds the simulator with the binary code. In this context it was a tool that provides a high educational value that, on one hand, helps students learn to write an error-free assembly code and on the other hand comprehend the activities that take place during the execution of the program under different settings. At the front-end of the system there are two parts; the editor and the simulator while at the back-end there are the system specially developed assembler and database.
