Goshtasbpour, Fereshte; Swinnerton, Bronwen; Morris, Neil Peter – British Journal of Educational Technology, 2020
Previous research on xMOOC pedagogy has established that learner interactions in discussion forums play a fundamental role in learning.

Stieler-Hunt, Colleen; Jones, Christian – British Journal of Educational Technology, 2019
The benefits of using digital games in the curriculum are well documented in literature. Most teachers who use digital games use short-form drill-and-practice learning games rather than the kinds of games most students would choose to play in their free time. The use of more interactive, immersive digital games (IDGs) in classrooms tends to be…

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…

Pi, Zhongling; Hong, Jianzhong; Hu, Weiping – British Journal of Educational Technology, 2019
There has been growing interest in the possibility that peers' ideas can stimulate students' creativity in group contexts. However, empirical research on this issue is limited. This study tested the hypothesis that peers' ideas and students' openness to experience would predict student creativity and attention to peers' ideas. Undergraduate…

Veletsianos, George; Johnson, Nicole; Belikov, Olga – British Journal of Educational Technology, 2019
The use of social media in academics' lives is well documented; however, researchers have a limited understanding about whether, why and how academics' social media use changes over time. Through interviews with 12 scholars, we identify multiple reasons that lead them to change their use of social media over time. Specifically, scholars report…
