Cheng, Eddie W. L. – Educational Technology Research and Development, 2019
Conflicting perspectives exist regarding the application of the technology acceptance model (TAM) and the theory of planned behavior (TPB) to the study of technology acceptance behavior. The present study addressed the controversy by evaluating and comparing the predictive power of the two theories in a specific context, which was to measure…

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…

Cacciamani, Stefano; Perrucci, Vittore; Khanlari, Ahmad – Educational Technology Research and Development, 2018
The aim of this study was to develop a coding scheme rooted in the Knowledge Building model, named Conversational Functions for Knowledge Building (CF4KB), to analyze students' interactions in an online undergraduate course. In order to develop the coding scheme, we analyzed students discourse and identified the kinds of "Conversational…

Yang, Ming; Shao, Zhen; Liu, Qian; Liu, Chuiyi – Educational Technology Research and Development, 2017
The massive open online course (MOOC) is emerging as the new paradigm for modern education. The success of MOOCs depends on learners' continued usage. Drawing upon the information systems success model (IS success model) and technology acceptance model, a theoretical model for studying learners' continuance intentions toward participation in MOOCs…

Arnone, Marilyn P.; Small, Ruth V.; Chauncey, Sarah A.; McKenna, H. Patricia – Educational Technology Research and Development, 2011
This paper identifies the need for developing new ways to study curiosity in the context of today's pervasive technologies and unprecedented information access. Curiosity is defined in this paper in a way which incorporates the concomitant constructs of interest and engagement. A theoretical model for curiosity, interest and engagement in new…

Sansone, Carol; Fraughton, Tamra; Zachary, Joseph L.; Butner, Jonathan; Heiner, Cecily – Educational Technology Research and Development, 2011
Successful online students must learn and maintain motivation to learn. The Self-regulation of Motivation (SRM) model (Sansone and Thoman 2005) suggests two kinds of motivation are essential: Goals-defined (i.e., value and expectancy of learning), and experience-defined (i.e., whether interesting). The Regulating Motivation and Performance Online…

Li, Qing; Moorman, Lynn; Dyjur, Patti – Educational Technology Research and Development, 2010
This research seeks to (1) establish a feasible development and implementation model for an inquiry-based learning environment with e-mentoring using videoconference, and (2) apply the model to examine its impact on rural students' learning. To achieve these goals, we developed a model of inquiry-based learning with e-mentoring (IBLE) based on…

Capelo, Carlos; Dias, Joao Ferreira – Educational Technology Research and Development, 2009
This study aims to be a contribution to a theoretical model that explains the effectiveness of the learning and decision-making processes by means of a feedback and mental models perspective. With appropriate mental models, managers should be able to improve their capacity to deal with dynamically complex contexts, in order to achieve long-term…

Seok, Soonhwa – Educational Technology Research and Development, 2009
The purpose of this study was to identify and validate items applicable to evaluating online courses at the postsecondary level. Items were derived from a review of the literature. Four judges rated the similarity of the items by making pair-wise comparisons utilizing multidimensional scaling (MDS). The study consisted of five stages. Stage I…
