This paper seeks to briefly present the review on the key WiMAX features, describing its strengths over other technologies. It also seeks to review the result of the survey conducted presenting opinions from a number of country's ICT professionals. The aim is to show how using WiMAX to address connectivity problems faced by developing countries will bridge digital divide.
An in‐depth literature review was conducted to study the WiMAX standard. Also, the study was conducted to gather opinions of ICT professionals by asking their views about connectivity problems and solutions. The study uses a low number of internet users as an indication of low ICT penetration in the country. To conduct a survey, a questionnaire was uploaded to the website and emails were distributed to online communities and email groups with the link to the questionnaire and results were analyzed.
The study shows that if well planned, WiMAX will be a breakthrough technology to provide connectivity to undeserved areas.
The study gives an insight to the problems facing developing countries. The study contributes to the industry and body of knowledge by giving an in depth summary to WiMAX technology. The findings can be used by network planners, policy makers, scholars and industry in general.

The purpose of this paper is to provide assessment guidelines which help to implement research‐based education in science and technology areas, which would benefit from the quality of this type of education within this subject area.
This paper is a reflection on, and analysis of, different aspects of assessment. From one side, it looks at assessment in general, in society at large.
Assessment could be improved within this field in order to contribute to the learning process, rather than merely measure and categorise a student's performance after the fact. To do this the paper not only looks at different forms of assessment and different ways of conducting the assessment, but also argues that certain ways of teaching and of structuring a class and an assignment are more conducive to creating an atmosphere in which students will be wanting to receive feedback to improve their learning and performance rather than a mark as a prize or reward.
The paper shows that the outcomes from this study will be useful in establishing the link between research and education which has been a key success in many world‐class institutions, resulting in the graduation of emerging professionals who will conduct cutting‐edge research and run high‐technology enterprises across a host of disciplines.
