Kaul, Manfred; Kless, André; Bonne, Thorsten; Rieke, Almut – International Association for Development of the Information Society, 2017
Almost unnoticed by the e-learning community, the underlying technology of the WWW is undergoing massive technological changes on all levels these days. In this paper we draw the attention to the emerging game changer and discuss the consequences for online learning. In our e-learning project "Work & Study", funded by the German…

Mueller, Christoph Emanuel; Gaus, Hansjoerg; Rech, Joerg – American Journal of Evaluation, 2014
This article proposes an innovative approach to estimating the counterfactual without the necessity of generating information from either a control group or a before-measure. Building on the idea that program participants are capable of estimating the hypothetical state they would be in had they not participated, the basics of the Roy-Rubin model…

International Association for Development of the Information Society, 2012
The IADIS CELDA 2012 Conference intention was to address the main issues concerned with evolving learning processes and supporting pedagogies and applications in the digital age. There had been advances in both cognitive psychology and computing that have affected the educational arena. The convergence of these two disciplines is increasing at a…

Krüger, Ralph – Studies in Second Language Learning and Teaching, 2012
This article sets out to illustrate possible applications of electronic corpora in the translation classroom. Starting with a survey of corpus use within corpus-based translation studies, the didactic value of corpora in the translation classroom and their epistemic value in translation teaching and practice will be elaborated. A typology of…

Herrera, Oriel A.; Fuller, David A. – Australasian Journal of Educational Technology, 2011
Remote experimentation laboratories (REL) are systems based on real equipment that allow students to carry out a laboratory practice through the Internet on the computer. In engineering, there have been numerous initiatives to implement REL over recent years, given the fundamental role of laboratory activities. However, in the past efforts have…

Baldoni, Matteo; Baroglio, Cristina; Brunkhorst, Ingo; Henze, Nicola; Marengo, Elisa; Patti, Viviana – Interactive Learning Environments, 2011
Curricula authoring is a complex process, involving different actors and different kinds of knowledge. Learners aim at acquiring expertise about some topic of their own interest, and need to perceive that the curriculum they attend will lead them toward their goal; when this does not happen, they become demotivated. Learners are all different, not…

Zawacki-Richter, Olaf; Hanft, Anke; Baecker, Eva Maria – International Review of Research in Open and Distance Learning, 2011
This paper uses the example of an Internet-based advanced studies course to show how the portfolio method, as a competence-based form of examination, can be integrated in a blended learning design. Within the framework of a qualitative analysis of project portfolios, we examined which competencies are documented and how students reflected on their…

Ifenthaler, Dirk – Journal of Research on Technology in Education, 2011
The study adds to the body of knowledge about different types of feedback. Feedback is considered a fundamental component for supporting and regulating learning processes. Especially in computer-based and self-regulated learning environments, the nature of feedback is of critical importance. Hence, this study investigates different types of…

Vasishth, Shravan; Brussow, Sven; Lewis, Richard L.; Drenhaus, Heiner – Cognitive Science, 2008
A central question in online human sentence comprehension is, "How are linguistic relations established between different parts of a sentence?" Previous work has shown that this dependency resolution process can be computationally expensive, but the underlying reasons for this are still unclear. This article argues that dependency…

Pawlowski, Jan M.; Bick, Markus – Educational Technology & Society, 2006
The DIN Didactical Object Model extends the approaches of existing Educational Modeling Languages introducing specifications for contexts and experiences. In this paper, we show how the Didactical Object Model can be used for sharing didactical expertise. Educational Modeling Languages change the design paradigm from content orientation towards…

Vossen, Gottfried; Westerkamp, Peter – Electronic Journal of e-Learning, 2004
"Web services" enable partners to exploit applications via the Internet. Individual services can be composed to build new and more complex ones with additional and more comprehensive functionality. In this paper, we apply the Web service paradigm to electronic learning, and show how to exchange and maintain learning objects is a…
