Chen, Beyin; Hwang, Gwo-Haur; Lin, Tze-Shiun – British Journal of Educational Technology, 2020
Past research has pointed out that a good grouping strategy can improve the learning effectiveness of collaborative learning. However, the grouping strategy adopted in most past research is static grouping. This results in some disadvantages. Therefore, this study developed an item bank-based collaborative practice system and proposed a dynamic…

Mensink, Paul J.; King, Karen – British Journal of Educational Technology, 2020
We used educational data mining to quantify student access of online feedback files and explore the underlying drivers of feedback file access in a learning management system (LMS). We collated LMS access logs for 32 individual pieces of assessment representing 1462 feedback files for 484 students (males = 45%, females = 55%) that originated…

Kay, Alison E.; Hardy, Judy; Galloway, Ross K. – British Journal of Educational Technology, 2020
This study explores the relationship between engagement with an online, free-to-use question-generation application (PeerWise) and student achievement. Using PeerWise, students can create and answer multiple-choice questions and can provide feedback to the question authors on question quality. This provides further scope for students to engage in…

Fanfarelli, Joey R. – British Journal of Educational Technology, 2020
The literature reflects a shortage of empirical research on educational game design. This paper presents the results from a randomized controlled study on the impact of narrative and digital badging on learning and engagement in an educational game that teaches basic brain structure and function to undergraduate psychology students. Participants…

McFaul, Hugh; FitzGerald, Elizabeth – British Journal of Educational Technology, 2020
This paper provides a realist evaluation of the Open Justice virtual reality (VR) smartphone app, designed to develop presentation skills for students on an undergraduate legal education module. This work addresses two research questions: what proportion of students engaged with the Open Justice app, and what worked for whom in what circumstances…

Yang, Yuqin; Chen, Qianqian; Yu, Yawen; Feng, Xueqi; van Aalst, Jan – British Journal of Educational Technology, 2020
We examined the facilitation of shared epistemic agency through a knowledge-building (KB) design that included analytics-supported collective reflective assessment (AsCRA). Forty undergraduate students taking a Liberal Studies course at a university in central China used the promising ideas tool and the knowledge building discourse explorer to…

Buil, Isabel; Catalán, Sara; Martínez, Eva – British Journal of Educational Technology, 2019
Flow is a state of total absorption and concentration in an activity that is desirable for students, as it enhances the learning experience. Due to the importance of flow for learning, this research investigates the influence of three flow preconditions--namely balance of skill and challenge, feedback and goal clarity--on students' flow,…

Montgomery, Amanda P.; Mousavi, Amin; Carbonaro, Michael; Hayward, Denyse V.; Dunn, William – British Journal of Educational Technology, 2019
Blended learning (BL) is a popular e-Learning model in higher education that has the potential to take advantage of learning analytics (LA) to support student learning. This study utilized LA to investigate fourth-year undergraduates' (n = 157) use of self-regulated learning (SRL) within the online components of a previously unexamined BL…

Pardo, Abelardo; Jovanovic, Jelena; Dawson, Shane; Gaševic, Dragan; Mirriahi, Negin – British Journal of Educational Technology, 2019
There is little debate regarding the importance of student feedback for improving the learning process. However, there remain significant workload barriers for instructors that impede their capacity to provide timely and meaningful feedback. The increasing role technology is playing in the education space may provide novel solutions to this…

Papamitsiou, Zacharoula; Economides, Anastasios A. – British Journal of Educational Technology, 2019
Practising self-regulated learning (SRL) has been proposed to develop learning autonomy. However, there is lack of empirical evidence on how SRL strategies affect autonomous learning capacity. This study attempts to bridge that gap by utilizing the learners' trace data for measuring the learners' autonomous interactions, and investigates the…

Jeno, Lucas M.; Adachi, Paul J. C.; Grytnes, John-Arvid; Vandvik, Vigdis; Deci, Edward L. – British Journal of Educational Technology, 2019
From the lens of Self-Determination Theory, this study investigated the effects of a mobile application tool for identifying species on biology students' achievement and well-being. It was hypothesized that the mobile application, compared to a textbook, would enhance feelings of competence and autonomy and, in turn, intrinsic motivation, positive…
