Armakolas, Stefanos; Mikroyannidis, Alexander; Panagiotakopoulos, Christos; Panousopoulou, Theofania – International Journal of Virtual and Personal Learning Environments, 2016
Personal Learning Environments (PLEs) help students manage and take control of their own learning. As such, the PLE promotes self-regulation in learning and allows learners to aggregate, manipulate and share digital artefacts within a flexible and versatile online space. This paper presents a case study in Greece, concerning an investigation about…

Rao, Katta Rama Mohana; Patro, Chandra Sekhar – International Journal of Virtual and Personal Learning Environments, 2016
Higher education system in India has been expanded in a remarkable way, particularly in the post-independence period, to become one of the largest systems of its kind in the world. However, the Gross Enrollment Ratio (GER) is far below when compared to developed and many developing countries. The Government of India has focused on increasing the…

Graham, Christian; Jones, Nory B. – International Journal of Virtual and Personal Learning Environments, 2016
Information-systems development continues to be a difficult process, particularly for virtual teams that do not have the luxury of meeting face-to-face. The research literature on this topic reinforces this point: the greater part of database systems development projects ends in failure. The use of virtual teams to complete projects further…

Ewais, Ahmed; De Troyer, Olga – International Journal of Virtual and Personal Learning Environments, 2014
The use of 3D and Virtual Reality is gaining interest in the context of academic discussions on E-learning technologies. However, the use of 3D for learning environments also has drawbacks. One way to overcome these drawbacks is by having an adaptive learning environment, i.e., an environment that dynamically adapts to the learner and the…

Metcalf, Shari; Chen, Jason; Kamarainen, Amy; Frumin, Kim; Vickrey, Trisha; Grotzer, Tina; Dede, Chris – International Journal of Virtual and Personal Learning Environments, 2014
In incorporating technology in science education, some have expressed concern that the value added by technology is primarily due to the novelty or excitement about using the devices, resulting in no lasting effect on student motivation or learning in science. This research addresses this concern through evaluation of student motivation during a…

Liu, Chang; Zhong, Ying – International Journal of Virtual and Personal Learning Environments, 2014
Multi-level adaptation in end-user development (EUD) is an effective way to enable non-technical end users such as educators to gradually introduce more functionality with increasing complexity to 3D virtual learning environments developed by themselves using EUD approaches. Parameterization, integration, and extension are three levels of…

Hamshire, Claire; Cullen, W. Rod – International Journal of Virtual and Personal Learning Environments, 2014
The transition to higher education can be problematic for some students as they adapt to institutional procedures and degree level working at the same time as developing new social networks. To help facilitate these complex transitions institutions are increasingly turning towards digital technologies to provide both flexible access to resources…
