Martín-Monje, Elena; Castrillo, María Dolores; Mañana-Rodríguez, Jorge – Computer Assisted Language Learning, 2018
Data mining is increasing its popularity in the research of Technology-Enhanced Language Learning and Applied Linguistics in general. It enables a better understanding of progress, performance and possible pitfalls, which would be useful for language learners, teachers and researchers. Until recently it was an unexplored field, but it is expected…

Youngs, Bonnie L.; Prakash, Akhil; Nugent, Rebecca – Computer Assisted Language Learning, 2018
Logged tracking data for online courses are generally not available to instructors, students, and course designers and developers, and even if these data were available, most content-oriented instructors do not have the skill set to analyze them. Learning analytics, mined from logged course data and usually presented in the form of learning…

Gelan, Anouk; Fastré, Greet; Verjans, Martine; Martin, Niels; Janssenswillen, Gert; Creemers, Mathijs; Lieben, Jonas; Depaire, Benoît; Thomas, Michael – Computer Assisted Language Learning, 2018
Learning analytics (LA) has emerged as a field that offers promising new ways to prevent drop-out and aid retention. However, other research suggests that large datasets of learner activity can be used to understand online learning behaviour and improve pedagogy. While the use of LA in language learning has received little attention to date,…

Rienties, Bart; Lewis, Tim; McFarlane, Ruth; Nguyen, Quan; Toetenel, Lisette – Computer Assisted Language Learning, 2018
Language education has a rich history of research and scholarship focusing on the effectiveness of learning activities and the impact these have on student behaviour and outcomes. One of the basic assumptions in foreign language pedagogy and CALL in particular is that learners want to be able to communicate effectively with native speakers of…

Schulze, Mathias; Scholz, Kyle – Computer Assisted Language Learning, 2018
Currently there is a push toward offering more language courses online because they can provide students with new forms of social and learning interaction, widen their access to education, and offer an individualized learning experience in large classes. Little research exists examining how students transition between online and on-campus language…

Rubio, Fernando; Thomas, Jonathan M.; Li, Qin – Computer Assisted Language Learning, 2018
This chapter describes a study of a blended language course that combines face-to-face (F2F) instructional time with an online component. The purpose of the study is to understand how teachers and students exploit the complementarity of the two delivery formats to improve the learning experience. The study first examines how the presence of an…

Rachels, Jason R.; Rockinson-Szapkiw, Amanda J. – Computer Assisted Language Learning, 2018
A quasi-experimental, pretest-posttest, non-equivalent control group design was used to examine the effect of a mobile gamification application on third and fourth grade students' Spanish language achievement and student academic self-efficacy. In this study, the treatment group's Spanish language instruction was through the use of…

Montero Perez, Maribel; Peters, Elke; Desmet, Piet – Computer Assisted Language Learning, 2018
While most studies on L2 vocabulary learning through input have addressed learners' vocabulary uptake from written text, this study focuses on audio-visual input. In particular, we investigate the effects of enhancing video by (1) adding different types of L2 subtitling (i.e. no captioning, full captioning, keyword captioning, and glossed keyword…

Alhamami, Munassir – Computer Assisted Language Learning, 2018
This mixed-methods study investigates language learners' intention to attend a class and learn a foreign language in face-to-face and online settings using Ajzen's theory of planned behavior (TPB). The data were collected using interviews, questionnaires, and treatments with participants in two groups: a face-to-face language learning (FLL) group…

Lai, Chun; Hu, Xiao; Lyu, Boning – Computer Assisted Language Learning, 2018
Out-of-class learning with technology comprises an essential context of second language development. Understanding the nature of out-of-class language learning with technology is the initial step towards safeguarding its quality. This study examined the types of learning experiences that language learners engaged in outside the classroom and the…

Harvey-Scholes, Calum – Computer Assisted Language Learning, 2018
Software can facilitate English as a Foreign Language (EFL) students' self-correction of their free-form writing by detecting errors; this article examines the proportion of errors which software can detect. A corpus of 13,644 words of written English was created, comprising 90 compositions written by Spanish-speaking students at levels A2-B2…

Sydorenko, Tetyana; Daurio, Phoebe; Thorne, Steven L. – Computer Assisted Language Learning, 2018
To address the problem of limited opportunities for practicing second language speaking in interaction, especially delicate interactions requiring pragmatic competence, we describe computer simulations designed for the oral practice of extended pragmatic routines and report on the affordances of such simulations for learning pragmatically…

Jin, Li – Computer Assisted Language Learning, 2018
Different from the traditional term language input, affordance, an ecological term, has been deployed to analyze the perceived opportunities for second language (L2) learning an environment provides to L2 learners. L2 learning occurs only when the semiotic resources in the environment resonate with the learner's capacities such as their abilities,…

Friðriksdóttir, Kolbrún – Computer Assisted Language Learning, 2018
This article presents an analysis of tracking data collected over eight years on 43,000 users on "Icelandic Online (IOL)," seven open, guided online courses in Icelandic as a second language. The main objective in this study is to (a) map out retention for all the "IOL" courses, (b) compare retention on the same course…

Henry, Michael; Carroll, Fiona; Cunliffe, Daniel; Kop, Rita – Computer Assisted Language Learning, 2018
Advances in technology are currently helping to speed up the globalisation of 'super' languages. One can argue that at the same time technology might be used to help reverse the decline of less widely spoken languages. Cada Dia (CD) is a social learning method which uses online web meeting platforms, in combination with asynchronous learning…
