George, Amanda-Jane; McEwan, Alexandra; Tarr, Julie-Anne – Australasian Journal of Educational Technology, 2021
Australian higher education institutions have focused on attrition rates with increased vigour in light of the introduction of a new student success metric tied to attrition rates. Online programs have been of particular concern given persistently high attrition rates, being roughly double that of programs delivered either face-to-face or in…

Connolly, Cornelia; Hall, Tony; Ryan, Marie; McMahon, Jennifer; McGann, Marek; Egan, Alison – Australasian Journal of Educational Technology, 2021
This paper examines the unbundling of research in the context of the Teachers' Research Exchange (T-REX) platform, the national flagship Internet platform in Ireland for teachers to access, use and engage in research. This paper draws on two theoretical frameworks: Laurillard's conversational framework and Salmon's five-stage model. The first…

Ellis, Robert; Bliuc, Ana-Maria; Han, Feifei – Australasian Journal of Educational Technology, 2021
The ability to collaborate effectively face-to-face and online represents a critical skill for university graduates. However, there are still challenges regarding how to accurately assess this skill through traditional student learning measures. To better understand the nature of effective collaboration of university students in blended courses,…

Keskitalo, Tuulikki; Ruokamo, Heli – Australasian Journal of Educational Technology, 2021
Medical education can be emotionally charged for many reasons, while simulation-based activities in particular are designed to generate emotional reactions. However, few studies have concentrated on the relationship between learning and emotions in this field, despite widespread interest in the topic in other areas. The aim of this research was to…

Evans, Tanya; Kensington-Miller, Barbara; Novak, Julia – Australasian Journal of Educational Technology, 2021
Our study addresses a systemic issue facing higher education -- a lack of rigorous educational research alongside new technology-assisted ways of teaching and learning. The issue highlights the disciplinary disconnect as many academics do not research outside their discipline, yet are tasked with educational modernisation through trying out new…

Chin, Kai-Yi; Wang, Ching-Sheng – Australasian Journal of Educational Technology, 2021
In this study, we proposed an augmented reality- (AR-) based mobile touring system for an authentic learning activity, which enables students to observe and learn key information regarding cultural heritage sites. To evaluate the effectiveness of the proposed system, we conducted an experiment in a cultural heritage course at a Taiwanese…

Song, Boon Khing – Australasian Journal of Educational Technology, 2021
Electronic portfolios (e-portfolios) have been widely used to help learners collect evidence of their learning, reflect on their evaluation, and promote self-directed learning. Through the introduction of an e-portfolio platform in a cluster of lessons in a module in a polytechnic in Singapore, this paper aimed to evaluate the effectiveness of the…

Donkin, Rebecca; Kynn, Mary – Australasian Journal of Educational Technology, 2021
Studies in technology-rich learning environments have reported positive outcomes of active learning when compared to the traditional didactic classroom; others have found no benefits or have found interruption to learning due to the distraction of the technology. Evidence is required to support effective technology spaces that promote professional…

Ismaeel, Dina; Al Mulhim, Ensaf – Australasian Journal of Educational Technology, 2021
This article examines the influence of static/interactive infographics on reflective/impulsive students' academic achievement. The study sample consisted of 80 undergraduate students who were divided into two groups according to their cognitive style (reflective/impulsive). Each group was further divided into two sub-groups based on the type of…

Garcia, Gibran; Jung, Insung – Australasian Journal of Educational Technology, 2021
Previous studies have revealed that when video gamers, or users of three-dimensional (3D) virtual worlds, display intense concentration coupled with an emotional engagement in their undertaking, they are affected by multisensory stimuli. This can lead to developing a feeling of detachment from the physical world, which, in turn, can lead to high…

Buitrago-Flórez, Francisco; Reyes, Juan C.; Rincón, Raul; Hernández, Carola; Galvis, Francisco A.; Ángel, Christiam – Australasian Journal of Educational Technology, 2020
Homework assignments in engineering courses are still passive learning instruments that often appear as requirements rather than learning tools. This issue arises because the teaching team usually does not have the capabilities to provide real-time feedback, or to enable students to fix errors in a timely manner. To overcome this challenge, we…

Rabin, Eyal; Henderikx, Maartje; Kalman, Yoram M.; Kalz, Marco – Australasian Journal of Educational Technology, 2020
Massive open online course (MOOC) participants face diverse barriers that prevent them from feeling satisfied with participating in online courses. This study identified those barriers and their predictors. Using pre- and post-questionnaires, MOOC participants reported several characteristics and their barriers to satisfaction during the course.…
