Spaniol, Marc; Klamma, Ralf; Springer, Luise; Jarke, Matthias – International Journal of Distance Education Technologies, 2006
This article presents the case study of a cooperative Web-learning environment--SOCRATES--to foster barrier-free learning on the Web. While the growth of the Internet was exponential in the last years, still many communities don't benefit from Web-learning technology due to improper tools and constricted communication processes. These problems…

Leung, Howard; Komura, Taku – International Journal of Distance Education Technologies, 2006
This article introduces our Web-based handwriting education system developed with 3D computer graphics and pen computing technologies. Traditionally, in teaching handwriting, the teacher writes a character on the blackboard, and then students try to follow the teacher in order to write the same character. The teacher can check whether a student's…

Chen, Charlie C.; Shaw, Ruey-shiang – International Journal of Distance Education Technologies, 2006
The continued and increasing use of online training raises the question of whether the most effective training methods applied in live instruction will carry over to different online environments in the long run. Behavior Modeling (BM) approach--teaching through demonstration--has been proven as the most effective approach in a face-to-face (F2F)…

Chen, Charlie C.; Shang, Rong-An; Harris, Albert – International Journal of Distance Education Technologies, 2006
Case method teaching is a method of instruction that can improve the cognitive learning process. This method is used extensively in face-to-face classes. However, when it is applied to a distance education class in an online asynchronous environment, learning outcomes may differ. This article reports on a study that compares the use of case method…

Zang, Wei; Lin, Fuzong – International Journal of Distance Education Technologies, 2006
Student behavior analysis is an active research topic in distance education in recent years. In this article, we propose a new method called Boosting to investigate students' behaviors. The Boosting Algorithm can be treated as a data mining method, trying to infer from a large amount of training data the essential factors and their relations that…
