  Palestine is a country consisting of two main regions; the West Bank and Gaza strip. Palestine is considered a developing nation with continuous efforts to develop its economy using the application of Information and Communication Technology (ICT) as an important tool towards that progress. Numerous studies were carried out on E-Commerce (EC) adoption, however, there are yet any studies that studied it inside Palestine. The objective of this study is to analyze the factors influencing EC adoption in Palestine, as the study considers the factors influencing said adoption to be technological, organizational and information culture factors. A thorough analysis was conducted on each factor to gain a deep understanding of the status quo of EC adoption in Palestine. The study utilized a questionnaire survey to collect data from 50 participants picked from Palestinian SME’s operating in the ICT sector as data collected were descriptively analyzed. Based on the analysis, three major factors were found to be the most relative in regards to EC adoption; these are: IT readiness, technology trust and information integrity. The findings of this study will benefit the government of Palestine, businesses associations and any organization looking towards successful EC adoption.

  Service-oriented Architecture (SOA) as an ideal architecture to support today’s business challenges such as agility and flexibility acts like a bridge between IT and business domains. There are intensified SOA applications at large enterprises. However, small and medium enterprises cannot obtain SOA benefits due to the lack of compatible solutions of SOA implementation challenges. Service identification is the first step in service modeling that extracts services as building blocks of SOA. Determining suitable inputs for SME service identification based on their conditions is a key factor for developing related identification method. This paper proposes SME based criteria to evaluate current inputs of service identification. To assess the inputs that are collected from variety of sources a mapping process between enterprise goals and collected inputs is presented.

  Product quality is one of the key competitive factors that will enable firms to survive and succeed in the global market place. Product quality is an important dimension of operational performance in supply chain management that has not received sufficient attention from the research community. Previous researches in this field have neglected to consider the relationship between supply chain integration and dimensions of product quality. Hence, the effect of supply chain integration on quality performance has received less attention. Therefore consideration must be given to the development of collaborative activities between manufacturer, supplier and costumer which enables firms to work together and improve product quality. Accordingly, the primary focus of this study is to investigate the relationship between dimensions of product quality and supply chain integration. The dimensions considered for product quality are design quality and conformance quality, whereas the dimensions for supply chain integration are customer integration, supplier integration and internal integration. The relationships between these dimensions are then embodied in a framework which will be validated. This research adopts both a qualitative conceptual approach and a quantitative approach in the development of the framework. The literature is consulted in identifying the dimensions of supply chain integration and product quality. These dimensions are then modeled into a questionnaire survey and are administered to identify manufacturing companies. Validity and reliability of the scales for the construct of interest were assessed through a factor analysis and Cronbach-alpha test. The results provide considerable support for our product quality-supply chain integration framework that can be used in the manufacturing sector.

  Nowadays, educational technology is getting more important for the learning environment. Much research has been done to investigate the effectiveness of e-learning and development of collaborative activities. It is thus viable to develop a web based system so that collaborative activities between users can take place. This means that users can collaborate in doing assignments and projects. In this study the web based system and results from its evaluation are described. The requirements for the web based system are gathered via interviews and surveys. This resulted in the identification of tools and features suitable for collaborative learning which forms the attributes of the system. The evaluation of the system is carried out via questionnaires distributed to learners and teachers after they used the system. Statistical analysis carried out on the collected data revealed that the respondents all agreed to the system being suitable for collaborative learning. The proposed model Lotfi VCL (Lotfi Virtual Collaborative Learning) gives an application of the tools and features of collaborative learning software suitable for learners’ and teachers’ collaborative activities. The study concludes by highlighting the research contributions and future enhancements of the system.

  Cloud computing is a new paradigm shift. Researchers attempts to find the factors that affect the adoption of cloud computing. However, few studies were conducted in educational institutons and there is ambiguity regarding the sitaution of the adotion of cloud based learning. The purpose of this study is to review, analyse and integrate the literature to present the state of the cloud based learning and to provide researchers with direction for future works. Mainly, the study were extracted from educational background studies. Search engine such as Science Direct and Emerald and IEEE were used to identify the studys. A screening process was conducted to remove the unrelated studys. As a result, a total of 32 Articles were considered suitable based on the context of this study. Factors were extracted from the 32 Articles and a frequency analysis was conducted to identify the most frequent factors that have been used by previous studies. The result showed that ease of use, usefulness and security are the most frequent factors. TAM is still the most widely used theory for the adoption of cloud based learning. Followed by TOE and UTAUT. The majority of the respondents are students followed by IT professional and decision makers. The study is limited to the included studys and the used search engine. Future works are recommeded to investigate the adotpion of cloud based learning using UTAUT and to incoporate security and trust.

  The main aim of this study is to explore the moderating effect of information and communication technology tools on the relationship between networking services and Business Incubator (BI) success in Palestine. Business incubators are considered to offer important guidance that can help young firms to survive during their early stages. Many developing countries are currently suffering from a critical economic situation, especially, Arab countries where the unemployment rate is very high and the gross domestic product is very low compared to developed countries. Many success models have been proposed to measure the success of Business Incubators (BIs) in developed and developing countries. Also, many studies have examined the impact of ICT tools on economic and business development but very few have been conducted in Palestine. Therefore, this study investigates the role of networking services as a critical success factor in the performance of BIs in Palestine and also determines whether ICT tools moderate the relationship between networking services and BI success because it has been argued that ICT tools facilitate economic growth by accelerating knowledge sharing and increase the new product development activities and competition in the marketplace. This study adopted a descriptive survey consisting of six main stages that were administrated in 22-79 incubator managers, team members and experts in Palestine. The results show that networking services were one of the important factors that are affecting the incubator success in Palestine and the ICT tools moderate the relationship between networking services and incubator success.

  Hard of hearing and hearing loss are examples of disabilities that affect some individuals. Some of the deaf people use sign language to communicate among themselves as well as the normal people. This language is known as the sign language. The sign language for people with hearing loss depends on the movements of the hand which simultaneously combine facial expression, eyes and body movement and lip patterns. There is a need not with standing for making e-Learning accessible to the hearing impaired and deaf individuals. Now a days, the e-Learning Models for the deaf and hearing impaired individuals are very limited. They in fact are being isolated from getting the benefits from this technology. This study aimed to examine the existing e-Learning Models for the hearing impaired and deaf people in different case studies based on the reviews of previous related studies which are analyzed by using the content analysis approach. From the analysis, ten e-Learning Models were found during 2009-2016. The web-based education for the deaf and hearing impaired people has the highest overall rank according to the other studies related to the previous e-Learning Models. Furthermore, although, the web-based education is important for the deaf people in the e-Learning systems they still have major problems when accessing the e-Learning platforms via the web.
