Kissi, Philip Siaw; Nat, Muesser; Armah, Robert Benjamin – Educational Technology Research and Development, 2018
Flipped learning approach combines video-based instruction (VBI) outside the classroom and problem-solving activities inside the classroom. The success of this instructional approach largely depends on students' acceptance to learn the video presentation at home during pre-classroom activities. However, there are still very scarce insights…
