Pardo, Abelardo; Han, Feifei; Ellis, Robert A. – IEEE Transactions on Learning Technologies, 2017
Self-regulated learning theories are used to understand the reasons for different levels of university student academic performance. Similarly, learning analytics research proposes the combination of detailed data traces derived from technology-mediated tasks with a variety of algorithms to predict student academic performance. The former approach…

Sletten, Sarah Rae – Journal of Science Education and Technology, 2017
In flipped classrooms, lectures, which are normally delivered in-class, are assigned as homework in the form of videos, and assignments that were traditionally assigned as homework, are done as learning activities in class. It was hypothesized that the effectiveness of the flipped model hinges on a student's desire and ability to adopt a…

Lange, Chris; Costley, Jamie – International Review of Research in Open and Distributed Learning, 2017
Online instructors need to avoid unclear and confusing explanations of content, which can reduce the quality of learning. Extraneous load is reflective of poor instruction, in that it directs student effort towards processing information that does not contribute to learning. However, students may be able to manage poor instruction through effort…

van Vliet, E. A.; Winnips, J. C.; Brouwer, N. – CBE - Life Sciences Education, 2015
In flipped-class pedagogy, students prepare themselves at home before lectures, often by watching short video clips of the course contents. The aim of this study was to investigate the effects of flipped classes on motivation and learning strategies in higher education using a controlled, pre- and posttest approach. The same students were followed…
