Lemay, David John; Doleck, Tenzin – Education and Information Technologies, 2020
Massive open online courses (MOOCs) hold the promise of democratizing the learning process. However, providing effective feedback has proven hard to offer at scale since most methods require a teacher or tutor. Leveraging big data in MOOCs offers a mechanism to develop predictive models that can inform computer-based pedagogical tutors. We review…

Doleck, Tenzin; Lemay, David John; Basnet, Ram B.; Bazelais, Paul – Education and Information Technologies, 2020
Large swaths of data are readily available in various fields, and education is no exception. In tandem, the impetus to derive meaningful insights from data gains urgency. Recent advances in deep learning, particularly in the area of voice and image recognition and so-called complete knowledge games like chess, go, and StarCraft, have resulted in a…

Lemay, David John; Bazelais, Paul; Doleck, Tenzin – Education and Information Technologies, 2020
Previous research has produced contrasting findings regarding the influence of social networking on academic performance. Many have found negative relationships but some have also demonstrated a positive effect for social networking on academic performance. Still others report no links between social networking and academic performance.…

Lemay, David John; Basnet, Ram B.; Doleck, Tenzin; Bazelais, Paul – Education and Information Technologies, 2019
Social network analysis can provide insight into the educational research community as it manifests and evolves online. This study presents a social network analysis of Twitter use during the American Educational Research Association 2017 Annual Conference. The overall social network is sparse with low density, with a few very active nodes and…

Social networking sites (SNS) arguably represent one of the most consequential technological developments in recent history. As SNS use has burgeoned in recent years, increasing academic research has acknowledged the importance of SNS in students' lives. The emerging field of SNS scholarship investigates an important issue in the academic domain,…

Doleck, Tenzin; Lajoie, Susanne P.; Bazelais, Paul – Education and Information Technologies, 2019
The effects of social networking sites (SNS) use are especially significant for students, as they tend to be the most frequent and heavy users of such platforms. In this stream of work, prior research has documented the links between SNS use and academic performance; however, surprisingly, empirical evidence is inconclusive. Whereas previous…

Bazelais, Paul; Doleck, Tenzin; Lemay, David John – Education and Information Technologies, 2018
The purpose of this research is to investigate pre-university science "Collège d'enseignement général et professionnel" (CEGEP) students' behavioral intentions towards using online learning technologies. Heretofore, CEGEP students' use of technology has received scant attention, yet online learning technologies are found to play an…

Doleck, Tenzin; Lajoie, Susanne – Education and Information Technologies, 2018
The ubiquitous use of social networking sites by students and the potential impacts of such use on academic performance are of both theoretical and practical importance. Hence, this paper addresses the question: how does the use of social networking sites influence academic performance? The present review synthesizes the empirical findings of the…

Bazelais, Paul; Doleck, Tenzin – Education and Information Technologies, 2018
Research has suggested that learning approaches such as blended learning can enhance both the quality of instruction and student learning outcomes in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, & Mathematics) education. However, little is known about how such instructional approaches affect learning outcomes in the context of "Collège…

Basnet, Ram B.; Doleck, Tenzin; Lemay, David John; Bazelais, Paul – Education and Information Technologies, 2018
Teaching programming concepts to enhance students' problem solving and computational thinking skills is a challenging task, especially when students enter college with little to no preparation, or they lack the interest or capacity for programming. Online platforms that serve as automated practice and assessment systems have been offered as…

Lee, Lila; Lajoie, Susanne P.; Poitras, Eric G.; Nkangu, Miriam; Doleck, Tenzin – Education and Information Technologies, 2017
Learning to monitor and regulate one's learning in an academic setting is a task that all students must engage in. Learning in "group" situations requires both self- and co-regulation. This research examines a case study of a small group of medical student interactions during an on-line problem based learning activity (PBL) where…

Doleck, Tenzin; Bazelais, Paul; Lemay, David John – Education and Information Technologies, 2017
As the use of technology in education advances and broadens, empirical research around its use assumes increased importance. Yet literature investigating technology acceptance in certain populations remains scarce. We recently argued that technology acceptance investigations should also consider the modality of the antecedent belief, to…

Doleck, Tenzin; Bazelais, Paul; Lemay, David John – Education and Information Technologies, 2017
Investigations in technology acceptance in education has largely overlooked certain unique populations like students from the "Collège d'enseignement général et professionnel" (CEGEP) system. In studies examining CEGEP students' use of technology, the Technology Acceptance Model (TAM) perspective has not been taken into account, nor have…
