Shen, Pei-Di; Lee, Tsang-Hsiung; Tsai, Chia-Wen – Electronic Journal of e-Learning, 2007
Contrary to conventional expectations, the reality of computing education in Taiwan's vocational schools is not so practically oriented, and thus reveals much room for improvement. In this context, we conducted a quasi-experiment to examine the effects of applying web-based problem-based learning (PBL), web-based self-regulated learning (SRL), and…
