International Association for Development of the Information Society, Paper presented at the International Association for Development of the Information Society (IADIS) International Conference on Cognition and Exploratory Learning in the Digital Age (CELDA) (13th, Mannheim, Germany, Oct 28-30, 2016)
It is still under debate whether learners' interaction data within e-learning and/or open learning environments could be considered as reflections of their learning experiences to be effective or not. Therefore, it is meaningful to explore the nature of these interactions and to make meaningful conclusions. This study aims to explore what the nature of these interactions in an e-learning environment and to describe whether there is a meaningful pattern in their interaction data. For this purpose, a course on Computer Networks and Communication was designed in an e-learning platform, where learners could receive real-time responses and monitor their process through dashboards as recommendations for their learning process. 31 metrics were gathered from database records, which yielded a common factor with six sub-factors, where the highest correlation was between learners-learning dashboards interactions and learners-learning objects. In addition, this factorial structure could be considered a holistic view of a learning experience based on the interaction within an e-learning environment. Another finding of this study indicated that learners' interaction with learning dashboards had been one and meaningful dimension of their overall learning experiences. The results of this study presents instructional design cues and pedagogical outcomes. [For full proceedings, see ED571332.]
