Burgos, Daniel; Corbí, Alberto – Distance Education, 2018
Transgenic learning is a disruptive approach in education. It encourages modification of moving parts of the educational chain. This article provides a view of transgenic learning focused on the delivery of enriched learning contents in STEAM areas. It discusses the mutagenic role that the virtual containers may play in current distance education.…

Gómez-Galán, Marta; Carreño-Ortega, Ángel; López-Martínez, Javier; Callejón-Ferre, Ángel-Jesús – Education Sciences, 2018
Tractors are used to perform jobs that require different types of agricultural tools to be attached to their rear, to their front, or both. These tools may need to be dragged, towed, or suspended above ground, and sometimes require a power supply; this is usually obtained via a hydraulic system or from the tractor's power take-off system. When…

Rodriguez-Gil, Luis; García-Zubia, Javier; Orduña, Pablo; López-de-Ipiña, Diego – IEEE Transactions on Learning Technologies, 2017
Online laboratories have traditionally been split between virtual labs, with simulated components; and remote labs, with real components. The former tend to provide less realism but to be easily scalable and less expensive to maintain, while the latter are fully real but tend to require a higher maintenance effort and be more error-prone. This…

Chiner, Esther; Garcia-Vera, Victoria E. – European Journal of Engineering Education, 2017
The purpose of this study was to examine students' computer attitudes and experience, as well as students' perceptions about the use of two specific software applications (Google Drive Spreadsheets and Arquimedes) in the Building Engineering context. The relationships among these variables were also examined. Ninety-two students took part in this…

Millan, Eva; Belmonte, Maria-Victoria; Ruiz-Montiel, Manuela; Gavilanes, Juan; Perez-de-la-Cruz, Jose-Luis – IEEE Transactions on Learning Technologies, 2016
In this paper, we present BH-ShaDe, a new software tool to assist architecture students learning the ill-structured domain/task of housing design. The software tool provides students with automatic or interactively generated floor plan schemas for basic houses. The students can then use the generated schemas as initial seeds to develop complete…

Ruano, Ildefonso; Gamez, Javier; Dormido, Sebastian; Gomez, Juan – IEEE Transactions on Learning Technologies, 2016
Online laboratories are useful and valuable resources in high education, especially in engineering studies. This work presents a methodology to create effective laboratories for learning that interact with a Learning Management System (LMS) to achieve advanced integration. It is based on pedagogical aspects and considers not only the laboratory…

Fernández-Alemán, José Luis; Carrillo-de-Gea, Juan Manuel; Meca, Joaquín Vidal; Ros, Joaquín Nicolás; Toval, Ambrosio; Idri, Ali – IEEE Transactions on Education, 2016
This paper presents the results of two educational experiments carried out to determine whether the process of specifying requirements (catalog-based reuse as opposed to conventional specification) has an impact on effectiveness and productivity in co-located and distributed software development environments. The participants in the experiments…

Lawley, Jim – Language Learning & Technology, 2015
This paper describes the development of web-based software at a university in Spain to help students of EFL self-correct their free-form writing. The software makes use of an eighty-million-word corpus of English known to be correct as a normative corpus for error correction purposes. It was discovered that bigrams (two-word combinations of words)…

Ibáñez Moreno, Ana; Vermeulen, Anna – Research-publishing.net, 2015
In this paper the methodological steps taken in the conception of a new mobile application (app) are introduced. This app, called VISP (Videos for Speaking), is easily accessible and manageable, and is aimed at helping students of English as a Foreign Language (EFL) to improve their idiomaticity in their oral production. In order to do so, the app…

Cazorla, Miguel; Viejo, Diego – Journal of Technology and Science Education, 2015
Machine vision is an important subject in computer science and engineering degrees. For laboratory experimentation, it is desirable to have a complete and easy-to-use tool. In this work we present a Java library, oriented to teaching computer vision. We have designed and built the library from the scratch with emphasis on readability and…
