Background: The inferior alveolar nerve block (IANB) is the most frequent regional anaesthesia technique used in dental procedures and has been reported to have the highest failure rates among dental undergraduates, interns and even, dental professionals. Hence, local anaesthesia has been formally taught in worldwide dental curriculum since the 1940s. This was when lignocaine was introduced as the safest anaesthesia medium for dental anaesthesia. Otherwise, dental anaesthesia was performed by Horace Wells in 1920s using cocaine. Purpose. This study is mainly aimed to examine the difference between Year 1 and Year 3 dental undergraduates towards perceived attributes of innovation diffusion theory and intention to use a Novel Local Anaesthesia Simulator Kit (LASK) in competently performing inferior alveolar nerve block in pre-clinical simulation. Methodology. A cross-sectional survey was conducted using questionnaire; and distributed to dental undergraduates. A total of 150 questionnaires were valid for data analysis. Results. The findings revealed that the perceived attributes of relative advantage, compatibility, observability and trialability were statistically different for both groups of students. However, results indicate that complexity construct for both non-clinical and pre-clinical groups of students were not statistically significant difference. Conclusion. The findings of this study will contribute to specific educational significance in the dental curriculum, especially in assessment of dental undergraduates’ clinical competence dental undergraduates at a more microscopic level.

This research aims to describe the implementation of the deradicalization strategy of religion for right and ideal format among the students of Islamic Universities. This research is qualitative with a field research approach. The data collection method uses observation, interviews, and documentation. The data analysis method was conducted in four steps data collection, data reduction, data display, and conclusion or verification. The research was conducted at three Islamic Universities (PTKIN) in Indonesia, namely STAIN Bengkalis, IAIN Purwokerto, and UIN Sunan Kalijaga. Based on the research results, it was found that the ideal format for religious deradicalization in PTKIN was through; 1) Early detection of radicalism against new students of State Islamic Universities, 2) The recognition process of academic and students’ culture (PBAK), 3) Strengthening the religious academic institution and the student organizations, and 4) Making treasure of the veiled female students and giving for their groups. The four methods above can be used as the chancellors' policies in deradicalizing their respective campuses.

Traditional face-to-face learning and online learning have become a debate for decades, which is more effective and has a significant impact on students' learning. The pandemic of COVID-19 has forced students to change their study mode from traditional face-to-face learning to online learning. This study has conducted a study to identify which ways are more effective, the traditional face-to-face learning or online learning using a quantitative method of online survey questionnaires. This study intends to fill this void in the literature and explore students’ perceptions of online learning versus traditional face-to-face learning. This study used target respondents of 148 public and private university students in Malaysia. According to the results, most of the respondents preferred traditional face-to-face learning is more effective than online learning because of some problems they encountered while doing online learning, such as lack of course instructions and unreliable university internet connection.
