Alice Brown; Jill Lawrence; Megan Axelsen; Petrea Redmond; Joanna Turner; Suzanne Maloney; Linda Galligan – Distance Education, 2024
Nudging has been used in a range of fields to shape citizens' behavior and promote public priorities. However, in educational contexts, nudges have only been explored relatively recently, with limited but promising evidence for the role of nudging used to increase engagement in online study, particularly in higher education. This paper reports on…

A longstanding area of disagreement among theological educators has been whether the holistic formational goals of theological education can be adequately addressed through non-face-to-face learning modes. This study explored student perceptions of how their experience of studying theology in an asynchronous online context contributed to their…

Learning environments that support a sense of belonging have been shown to help students fully and meaningfully participate in their learning. Less is known, however, about the social organization of online learning environments that support a sense of belonging, particularly in postsecondary contexts. With an explicit attention to issues of…

Broadbent, Jaclyn; Howe, Wren D. W. – Distance Education, 2023
Online help-seeking refers to a learner's willingness to seek help in online learning environments. Counterintuitively, studies of help-seeking have found mixed results for the relationship between help-seeking and academic achievement. We hypothesized that these mixed findings might, in part, be accounted for by the confidence level of the…

Lee, Minhye; Lim, Jieun – Distance Education, 2023
The role of motivation in online learning has been explored mostly as a predictor of course retention or satisfaction, rather than as an adaptive outcome in itself. We thus aimed to investigate how the features of motivation develop in online courses during the semester and how students' perceived teaching and social presences influence their…

Kipling, Richard P.; Stiles, William A. V.; de Andrade-Lima, Micael; MacKintosh, Neil; Roberts, Meirion W.; Williams, Cate L.; Wootton-Beard, Peter C.; Watson-Jones, Sarah J. – Distance Education, 2023
Online postgraduate courses for professionals often use discussion forums to promote engagement and interaction. Equivalency theorem suggests that student-student interaction may increase satisfaction but is not necessary for achieving desired learning outcomes. Therefore, costs, as well as benefits, should be ascertained. We used data from…

Hengtao Tang; Yan Yang; Yu Bao – Distance Education, 2023
Evidence that open educational resources (OER) can decrease college students' educational cost without harm to their course performance on different subjects has been well documented, but student motivation to use OER for learning is underexplored. This study investigated college students' achievement goals of using OER from the perspective of…

Waterhouse, Philippa; Samra, Rajvinder; Lucassen, Mathijs – Distance Education, 2022
The perceived flexibility of distance education, whereby students can juggle their multiple life roles, is often cited as the predominant reason for enrolling in this mode of study. Nonetheless, for distance learners their multiple roles often have a significant impact on their study experience. This study had three objectives: (1) to explore…

The field of learning analytics (LA) is developing rapidly. However, previous empirical studies on LA were largely data-driven. Little attention has been paid to theory-driven LA studies. The present scoping review identified and summarized empirical theory-driven LA studies, aiming to reveal how theories were integrated into LA. The review…
