Holmes, Mike; Latham, Annabel; Crockett, Keeley; O'Shea, James D. – IEEE Transactions on Learning Technologies, 2018
Comprehension is an important cognitive state for learning. Human tutors recognize comprehension and non-comprehension states by interpreting learner non-verbal behavior (NVB). Experienced tutors adapt pedagogy, materials, and instruction to provide additional learning scaffold in the context of perceived learner comprehension. Near real-time…

Oh, Seungjae; So, Hyo-Jeong; Gaydos, Matthew – IEEE Transactions on Learning Technologies, 2018
The goal for this research is to articulate and test a new hybrid Augmented Reality (AR) environment for conceptual understanding. From the theoretical lens of embodied interaction, we have designed a multi-user participatory simulation called ARfract where visitors in a science museum can learn about complex scientific concepts on the refraction…

Kapelner, Adam; Soterwood, Jeanine; Nessaiver, Shalev; Adlof, Suzanne – IEEE Transactions on Learning Technologies, 2018
Vocabulary knowledge is essential to educational progress. High quality vocabulary instruction requires supportive contextual examples to teach word meaning and proper usage. Identifying such contexts by hand for a large number of words can be difficult. In this work, we take a statistical learning approach to engineer a system that predicts…

Burleson, Winslow S.; Harlow, Danielle B.; Nilsen, Katherine J.; Perlin, Ken; Freed, Natalie; Jensen, Camilla Nørgaard; Lahey, Byron; Lu, Patrick; Muldner, Kasia – IEEE Transactions on Learning Technologies, 2018
As computational thinking becomes increasingly important for children to learn, we must develop interfaces that leverage the ways that young children learn to provide opportunities for them to develop these skills. Active Learning Environments with Robotic Tangibles (ALERT) and Robopad, an analogous on-screen virtual spatial programming…

Lehman, Blair A.; Zapata-Rivera, Diego – IEEE Transactions on Learning Technologies, 2018
Students can experience a variety of emotions while completing assessments. Some emotions can get in the way of students performing their best (e.g., anxiety, frustration), whereas other emotions can facilitate student performance (e.g., engagement). Many new, non-traditional assessments, such as automated conversation-based assessments (CBA), are…

Harley, Jason M.; Taub, Michelle; Azevedo, Roger; Bouchet, Francois – IEEE Transactions on Learning Technologies, 2018
Research on collaborative learning between humans and virtual pedagogical agents represents a necessary extension to recent research on the conceptual, theoretical, methodological, analytical, and educational issues behind co- and socially-shared regulated learning between humans. This study presents a novel coding framework that was developed and…

Usai, Francesco; O'Neil, Kiera G. R.; Newman, Aaron J. – IEEE Transactions on Learning Technologies, 2018
Computer and smartphone-based applications for second language (L2) learning have become popular tools, being integrated in many classroom-based courses and adopted by the public at large. Yet, despite a significant body of research that suggests that individuals differ in their ability to learn L2, it is still unclear what factors predict…

Chen, Xin; Self, Jessica Zeitz; House, Leanna; Wenskovitch, John; Sun, Maoyuan; Wycoff, Nathan; Evia, Jane Robertson; Leman, Scotland; North, Chris – IEEE Transactions on Learning Technologies, 2018
With the rise of big data, it is becoming increasingly important to educate groups of students at many educational levels about data analytics. In particular, students without a strong mathematical background may have an unenthusiastic attitude towards high-dimensional data and find it challenging to understand relevant complex analytical methods,…

Schouten, Dylan G. M.; Venneker, Fleur; Bosse, Tibor; Neerincx, Mark A.; Cremers, Anita H. M. – IEEE Transactions on Learning Technologies, 2018
In this study, we investigate if a digital coach for low-literate learners that provides cognitive learning support based on scaffolding can be improved by adding affective learning support based on motivational interviewing, and social learning support based on small talk. Several knowledge gaps are identified: motivational interviewing and small…

Che, Xiaoyin; Yang, Haojin; Meinel, Christoph – IEEE Transactions on Learning Technologies, 2018
Textbook highlighting is widely considered to be beneficial for students. In this paper, we propose a comprehensive solution to highlight the online lecture videos in both sentence- and segment-level, just as is done with paper books. The solution is based on automatic analysis of multimedia lecture materials, such as speeches, transcripts, and…

Bozgeyikli, Lal; Raij, Andrew; Katkoori, Srinivas; Alqasemi, Redwan – IEEE Transactions on Learning Technologies, 2018
In this article, state of the art on virtual reality (VR) for individuals with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) with a focus on training/targeted intervention is discussed and reflected upon to explore areas for more future benefits. We present advantages of VR for individuals with ASD. We identify challenges and design issues for future training…

Kiili, Kristian; Ketamo, Harri – IEEE Transactions on Learning Technologies, 2018
Even though digital learning games have become common in education, relatively little is known about the usefulness of game-based assessment. This paper aims to explore if a game-based math test can provide added value to math education with respect to cognitive and affective outcomes. We used in-game measures, embedded in the game called Semideus…

Chen, Guanliang; Davis, Dan; Krause, Markus; Aivaloglou, Efthimia; Hauff, Claudia; Houben, Geert-Jan – IEEE Transactions on Learning Technologies, 2018
Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) aim to "educate the world." More often than not, however, MOOCs fall short of this goal--a majority of learners are already highly educated (with a Bachelor's degree or more) and come from specific parts of the (developed) world. Learners from developing countries without a higher degree are…

Shimada, Atsushi; Okubo, Fumiya; Yin, Chengjiu; Ogata, Hiroaki – IEEE Transactions on Learning Technologies, 2018
This paper is an extension of research originally reported in [1]. Here, we propose a novel method for summarizing lecture slides to enhance students' preview efficiency and understanding of the content. Students are often asked to prepare for a class by reading lecture materials. However, because the attention span of students is limited, this is…

Liu, Qingtang; Zhang, Si; Wang, Qiyun; Chen, Wenli – IEEE Transactions on Learning Technologies, 2018
Teachers' online discussion text data shed light on their reflective thinking. With the growing scale of text data, the traditional way of manual coding, however, has been challenged. In order to process the large-scale unstructured text data, it is necessary to integrate the inductive content analysis method and educational data mining…
