Lee, Kyungmee – Educational Technology Research and Development, 2018
A constructivist learning paradigm emphasises authenticity as a required condition for learning. However, the design of an online learning environment is ultimately separate from learners' real-life environments, it is inevitably challenging to make online learning authentic. In this article, the author aims to propose an alternative way of…

Novak, Elena; Daday, Jerry; McDaniel, Kerrie – Educational Technology Research and Development, 2018
This empirical study used Keller's (Technol Instr Cogn Learn 16:79-104, 2008b) motivation, volition, and performance (MVP) theory to develop and statistically evaluate a mathematical MVP model that can serve as a research and policy tool for evaluating students' learning experiences in digital environments. Specifically, it explored undergraduate…

Shadiev, Rustam; Hwang, Wu-Yuin; Liu, Tzu-Yu – Educational Technology Research and Development, 2018
A learning activity supported by a mobile multimedia learning system (MMLS) was designed in this study. We aimed to test the effectiveness of the learning activity to enhance autonomous language learning in quasi-experimental Study 1 using a pretest/posttest design. Two groups participated in the learning activity: the students in a control group…

Luo, Heng; Koszalka, Tiffany A.; Arnone, Marilyn P.; Choi, Ikseon – Educational Technology Research and Development, 2018
This study investigated the case-based method (CBM) instructional-design theory and its application in designing self-directed online instruction. The purpose of this study was to validate and refine the theory for a self-directed online instruction context. Guided by formative research methodology, this study first developed an online tutorial…

Colliot, Tiphaine; Jamet, Éric – Educational Technology Research and Development, 2018
The present study investigated the effects on students' learning experience of adding a video of a teacher to an e-learning module. A total of 43 undergraduates were asked to learn the content of a pedagogical document either with or without a teacher video on the screen. Although video captures of teachers are increasingly being integrated into…
