Chu, Hui-Chun; Hwang, Gwo-Jen; Tsai, Chin-Chung; Chen, Nian-Shing – Interactive Learning Environments, 2009
Although Web 2.0 technologies have been recognized as effective means of conducting group learning activities, a critical and challenging issue of Web 2.0-based learning is the lack of mechanisms for promoting information exchanges and sharing among participating students. To cope with this problem, an intelligent blog system is proposed in this…

Severance, Charles; Hardin, Joseph; Whyte, Anthony – Interactive Learning Environments, 2008
Current Virtual Learning Environments (VLEs) are focused very much on meeting the needs of the institution in providing a basic, common technology platform for teaching and learning. However monolithic VLEs are too hard to customize at the individual user level, and evolve far too slowly to meet teaching and learning of users who want their…

Smits, Marieke H. S. B.; Boon, Jo; Sluijsmans, Dominique M. A.; van Gog, Tamara – Interactive Learning Environments, 2008
This study investigated the effectiveness of different types of feedback content (elaborate versus global) and feedback timing (immediate versus delayed) for learning genetics in a web-based learning environment as a function of learners' prior knowledge. It was hypothesized that learning outcomes of students with low prior knowledge would be…

Fischer, Frank; Troendle, Pamela; Mandl, Heinz – Interactive Learning Environments, 2003
Up to this point, university education has largely remained unaffected by the developments of novel approaches to web-based learning. The paper presents a principled approach to the design of problem-oriented, web-based learning at the university level. The principles include providing authentic contexts with multimedia, supporting collaborative…
