Vaquero, Luis M.; Rodero-Merino, Luis; Cuadrado, Félix – British Journal of Educational Technology, 2019
Online learning platforms offer students the option of sharing content. They have become common tools in many universities over the last 10 years. But there is little information about how content spreads in the classroom, ie, how information cascades appear and evolve and what factors are relevant for the formation of cascades. This work analyses…

Luik, Piret; Suviste, Reelika; Lepp, Marina; Palts, Tauno; Tõnisson, Eno; Säde, Merilin; Papli, Kaspar – British Journal of Educational Technology, 2019
Learners who enrol in massive open online courses (MOOCs) have different backgrounds and tend to have different motivations than learners in traditional courses. Based on value-expectancy theory, an instrument was developed to measure motivation for enrolling in a programming MOOC. A study with 1229 adult participants in Estonian-language…

Stöhr, Christian; Stathakarou, Natalia; Mueller, Franziska; Nifakos, Sokratis; McGrath, Cormac – British Journal of Educational Technology, 2019
Despite the emergence of massive open online courses (MOOCs) and the field of MOOC research, we have a limited understanding of the specific needs of different learner groups and how MOOCs can successfully address those needs. Video lectures and demonstrations are a central learning component of MOOCs. This paper contributes to the research…

Cohen, Anat; Shimony, Udi; Nachmias, Rafi; Soffer, Tal – British Journal of Educational Technology, 2019
This study explores and characterizes learners' participation patterns in MOOC forums, as well as the factors that correlate with learners' participation. Educational data mining and learning analytics methods were used to retrieve and analyze the learners' interpersonal interaction data, which had accumulated in the Coursera log files. The…

Duan, Jinju; Xie, Kui; Hawk, Nathan A.; Yu, Shengquan; Wang, Minjuan – British Journal of Educational Technology, 2019
This study adds a new perspective to the observations about connectivist interaction behavior in cMOOCs by extending the notion of network building from the perspective of individuals. We explore the possibility of building a learning network named Personal Social Knowledge Network (PSKN) to support in the monitoring of learning performance and…

Dousay, Tonia A.; Trujillo, Natasha P. – British Journal of Educational Technology, 2019
Existing research highlights conflicting results attempting to capture gender preferences with respect to unimodal versus multimodal designs in online learning. As online learning continues to expand, more research examining the role of gender in multimedia design holds considerable potential. However, the presence of multimedia in online learning…

Houlden, Shandell; Veletsianos, George – British Journal of Educational Technology, 2019
Flexible approaches to online learning are gaining renewed interest in some part due to their capacity to address emergent opportunities and concerns facing higher education. Importantly, flexible approaches to online learning are purported to be democratizing and liberatory, broadening access to higher education and enabling learners to…

Wang, Yang; Liu, Qingtang; Chen, Wenli; Wang, Qiyun; Stein, David – British Journal of Educational Technology, 2019
This study investigated whether video lectures instructed by a heightened level of expressiveness instructor were better than those instructed by a conventional level of expressiveness instructor or audio-only in promoting students' online learning, and what kind of effects do instructor's facial expressions have on students' learning. Three…

Schaefer, Teresa; Rahn, Johanna; Kopp, Tobias; Fabian, Claudia Magdalena; Brown, Alan – British Journal of Educational Technology, 2019
Research has shown that providing participants with high-quality learning material is not sufficient to help them profit most from online education. The level of interaction among participants is another key determinant for learning outcomes. However, merely proposing interaction does not automatically lead to fruitful discussion and…

Cacciamani, Stefano; Cesareni, Donatella; Perrucci, Vittore; Balboni, Giulia; Khanlari, Ahmad – British Journal of Educational Technology, 2019
Recently, Computer Supported Collaborative Learning researchers have become interested in the notion of scripting and assigning roles to students enrolled in online courses, in order to increase their engagement in collaborative activities. This study aimed to investigate whether assigning a role called "social tutor" to a student…

Huang, Kun; Law, Victor; Lee, Sang Joon – British Journal of Educational Technology, 2019
The Community of Inquiry (CoI) model provides a lens to examine online learning through three elements: teaching presence (the design and facilitation of learning experiences), social presence (the extent to which learners project themselves as real people) and cognitive presence (the extent to which learners are able to construct meaning through…

Peters, Mitchell; Romero, Marc – British Journal of Educational Technology, 2019
Lifelong learning opportunities are readily accessible through the hybridization of digital learning contexts--from formal to informal--in today's globally networked knowledge society. As such, expanded learning opportunities generate a continuum of learning contexts and experiences mediated through digital technology. Consequently, there is an…

Wang, Qiyun; Huang, Changqin – British Journal of Educational Technology, 2018
In this study, a blended synchronous learning environment (BSLE) was designed from pedagogical, social and technical perspectives. It was created for a group of master's students to attend lessons in the classroom and at the same time allow a few of them to join the identical sessions using video conferencing from different sites. The purpose of…
