Liu, Xin; Xu, Chan; Ouyang, Boyu – International Journal of Distance Education Technologies, 2015
Nowadays, computer programming is getting more necessary in the course of program design in college education. However, the trick of plagiarizing plus a little modification exists among some students' home works. It's not easy for teachers to judge if there's plagiarizing in source code or not. Traditional detection algorithms cannot fit this…

Azcarraga, Judith; Suarez, Merlin Teodosia – International Journal of Distance Education Technologies, 2013
Brainwaves (EEG signals) and mouse behavior information are shown to be useful in predicting academic emotions, such as confidence, excitement, frustration and interest. Twenty five college students were asked to use the Aplusix math learning software while their brainwaves signals and mouse behavior (number of clicks, duration of each click,…

Chang, Wen-Chih; Yang, Hsuan-Che; Shih, Timothy K.; Chao, Louis R. – International Journal of Distance Education Technologies, 2009
E-learning provides a convenient and efficient way for learning. Formative assessment not only guides student in instruction and learning, diagnose skill or knowledge gaps, but also measures progress and evaluation. An efficient and convenient e-learning formative assessment system is the key character for e-learning. However, most e-learning…
