Douglas, Kerrie; Zielinski, Mitch; Merzdorf, Hillary; Diefes-Dux, Heidi; Bermel, Peter – International Review of Research in Open and Distributed Learning, 2019
Improving STEM MOOC evaluation requires an understanding of the current state of STEM MOOC evaluation, as perceived by all stakeholders. To this end, we investigated what kinds of information STEM MOOC instructors currently use to evaluate their courses and what kinds of information they feel would be valuable for that purpose. We conducted…

Rodés, Virginia; Gewerc-Barujel, Adriana; Llamas-Nista, Martín – International Review of Research in Open and Distributed Learning, 2019
The Open Education movement has made efforts to systematise experiences and to evaluate the adoption of Open Educational Resources (OER). However, OER adoption is not part of the prevailing paradigm in higher education, both at the global level and in Latin America. This paper describes results of a study that analysed the social representations…

Moosvi, Firas; Reinsberg, Stefan A.; Rieger, Georg W. – International Review of Research in Open and Distributed Learning, 2019
In this article, we examine whether an inquiry-based, hands-on physics lab can be delivered effectively as a distance lab. In science and engineering, hands-on distance labs are rare and open-ended project labs in physics have not been reported in the literature. Our introductory physics lab at a large Canadian research university features…

Williams, Peter E.; Wall, Natalie; Fish, Wade W. – International Review of Research in Open and Distributed Learning, 2019
Adult professionals enroll in online graduate programs and rely on social support and on their ability to self-regulate to be successful. The literature on academic self-regulation among emerging adults (traditional college age) is ample, but we do not know how social support interacts with academic self-regulation among adult graduate students at…

Al Tawil, Rima – International Review of Research in Open and Distributed Learning, 2019
Does nonverbal communication exist in asynchronous, text-based online education? It is commonly believed that it does not due to the absence of body language and paralanguage. An examination of the definitions and forms of nonverbal cues suggests the possibility for some of them to be transmitted through asynchronous, text-based online human…

Maletic, Marija; Barac, Dušan; Naumovic, Tamara; Bogdanovic, Zorica; Radenkovic, Božidar – International Review of Research in Open and Distributed Learning, 2019
Given that the most students spend considerable time on social networks, many educational institutions use this habit as a basis for educational purposes. Increasing students' active participation in learning activities is one of the main goals of education. The purpose of this research was to investigate to what extent crowdvoting techniques can…

Cross, Simon; Sharples, Mike; Healing, Graham; Ellis, Jim – International Review of Research in Open and Distributed Learning, 2019
This study investigates how and where distance learners use handheld devices and the impact this has on learning habits, access to learning content and quality of work. It analyses the spatial dimension of anytime-anywhere learning and, with a focus on anywhere learning, it explores students' ongoing negotiation of the flow between and across…

Fanguy, Mik; Costley, Jamie; Baldwin, Matthew; Lange, Christopher; Wang, Holly – International Review of Research in Open and Distributed Learning, 2019
Media diversity within video lectures has been shown to have an effect on students who participate in both flipped classes as well as online courses. While some research claims that content delivered through multiple sources leads to more learning, contrasting research makes the claim that too much media hinders cognitive processing. The present…
