Chang, Wen-Long; Lee, Chun-Yi – Computers & Education, 2013
Several studies have found that participants are willing to share personal information on Facebook, due mainly to trust in fellow group members; however, this trust is often influenced by the discussion environment, methods and participants. A learning facilitator is often employed in entrepreneurial courses but few previous studies have examined…

Jyothi, Sujana; McAvinia, Claire; Keating, John – Computers & Education, 2012
Much research in recent years has focused on the introduction of virtual learning environments (VLEs) to universities, documenting practice, and sharing experience ([2], [9], [45] and [58]). Attention has been directed towards the importance of online dialogue for learning as a defining feature of the VLE. Communicative tools are an important…

Hainey, Thomas; Connolly, Thomas M.; Stansfield, Mark; Boyle, Elizabeth A. – Computers & Education, 2011
A highly important part of software engineering education is requirements collection and analysis which is one of the initial stages of the Database Application Lifecycle and arguably the most important stage of the Software Development Lifecycle. No other conceptual work is as difficult to rectify at a later stage or as damaging to the overall…

Yeh, Yu-chu; Huang, Ling-yi; Yeh, Yi-ling – Computers & Education, 2011
The purposes of this study were (1) to develop a teacher training program that integrates knowledge management (KM) and blended learning and examine its effects on pre-service teachers' professional development in creativity instruction; and (2) to explore the mechanisms underlying the success of such KM-based training. The employed KM model was…

AbuSeileek, Ali Farhan – Computers & Education, 2011
This study investigated the effect of gloss presentation in different text locations whilst participants read EFL texts in a hypermedia environment. Seventy-eight undergraduate EFL learners read and summarized seven texts and completed a vocabulary assessment. The number of propositions recalled in each summary was recorded. The data suggest that…

Kim, Hyeonjin; Hannafin, Michael J. – Computers & Education, 2011
Situated, case-based approaches, featuring virtual teachers' activity and reasoning in university classrooms, may provide a viable alternative to immersive field-based apprenticeships. Despite widespread advocacy on situated teacher education, research on preservice teachers' situated learning remains rare. This study examined how preservice…

Pasin, Federico; Giroux, Helene – Computers & Education, 2011
This study presents a new simulation game and analyzes its impact on operations management education. The proposed simulation was empirically tested by comparing the number of mistakes during the first and second halves of the game. Data were gathered from 100 teams of four or five undergraduate students in business administration, taking their…

Carbonaro, Mike; Szafron, Duane; Cutumisu, Maria; Schaeffer, Jonathan – Computers & Education, 2010
Enrollment in Computing Science university programs is at a dangerously low level. A major reason for this is the general lack of interest in Computing Science by females. In this paper, we discuss our experience with using a computer game construction environment as a vehicle to encourage female participation in Computing Science. Experiments…

Heilesen, Simon B. – Computers & Education, 2010
Podcasting may be an answer to some of the challenges to higher education to modernize, to open up, and to develop a competitive edge. However, over the years there have been many high claims for new technology, and not all of them have been redeemed. In terms of academic performance, it may therefore be asked if podcasting really is worth the…
