Wang, Jiechen; Ni, Haochen; Rui, Yikang; Cui, Can; Cheng, Liang – British Journal of Educational Technology, 2016
Field practice is an important part of training geography research talents. However, traditional teaching methods may not adequately manage, share and implement instruction resources and thus may limit the instructor's ability to conduct field instruction. A possible answer is found in the rapid development of computer-assisted instruction (CAI),…

Rowe, Michael; Bozalek, Vivienne; Frantz, Jose – British Journal of Educational Technology, 2013
While technology has the potential to create opportunities for transformative learning in higher education, it is often used to merely reinforce didactic teaching that aims to control access to expert knowledge. Instead, educators should consider using technology to enhance communication and provide richer, more meaningful platforms for the social…

Naranjo, Mila; Onrubia, Javier; Segues, Ma Teresa – British Journal of Educational Technology, 2012
A case study was used to analyse the relationships between participation in an online discussion forum and the cognitive quality of the contributions made. Participation was calculated using two dimensions: presence (who accesses the environment, how often and for how long) and connectivity (who interacts with whom and the degree of intensity of…

Warburton, Steven – British Journal of Educational Technology, 2009
"Second Life" (SL) is currently the most mature and popular multi-user virtual world platform being used in education. Through an in-depth examination of SL, this article explores its potential and the barriers that multi-user virtual environments present to educators wanting to use immersive 3-D spaces in their teaching. The context is set by…

Jordan, Sally; Mitchell, Tom – British Journal of Educational Technology, 2009
A natural language based system has been used to author and mark short-answer free-text assessment tasks. Students attempt the questions online and are given tailored and relatively detailed feedback on incorrect and incomplete responses, and have the opportunity to repeat the task immediately so as to learn from the feedback provided. The answer…
