Liu, Chiung-Wen; Ho, Li-An; Chueh, Ting-Yu – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2020
Because the microworld can create a learning environment that allows learners to interact with the real world, the view of the microworld has been widely used in education and training. In this study, the simulated transactional interactive concurrent system (STICS) was used to provide an environment that simulates the stock market trading of the…

García-Martínez, Carlos; Cerezo, Rebeca; Bermúdez, Manuel; Romero, Cristóbal – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2019
Most massive open online courses (MOOC) use simple schemes for aggregating peer grades, taking the mean or the median, or compute weights from information other than the instructor's opinion about the students' knowledge. To reduce the difference between the instructor and students' aggregated scores, some proposals compute specific weights to…

Almasseri, Mohammed; AlHojailan, Mohammed I. – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2019
The study aims to identify the effect of a flipped classroom approach designed according to the cognitive theory of multimedia learning on the academic achievements of eighth-grade students (aged 14 years) in Saudi Arabia in computer science. To this end, a quasi-experimental design was used, with a sample of 67 students; 33 students were assigned…

Veerasamy, Ashok Kumar; D'Souza, Daryl; Lindén, Rolf; Laakso, Mikko-Jussi – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2019
Past research has shown that student problem-solving skills may be used to determine student final exam performance. This study reports on the relationship between student perceived problem-solving skills and academic performance in introductory programming, in formative and summative programming assessment tasks. We found that the more effective…

Kolpashnikova, Kamila; Bartolic, Silvia – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2019
Computer-assisted instruction can change the way introductory statistics and quantitative methods courses are taught. Using a two-group pretest-posttest design, we conducted an experiment using an undergraduate social science student sample to investigate whether the introduction of statistical software to teaching quantitative methods would…

Soffer, Tal; Cohen, Anat – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2019
This study examined students' engagement characteristics in online courses and their impact on academic achievements, trying to distinguish between course completers and noncompleters. Moreover, this research is intended to differentiate between those who pass the final exam and those who do not. Four online courses were examined with a similar…

Nikou, S. A.; Economides, A. A. – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2018
Mobile-based micro-learning has gained a lot of attention lately, especially for work-based and corporate training. It combines features of mobile learning and micro-learning to deliver small learning units and short-term learning activities. The current study uses the lens of the Self-Determination Theory of motivation and proposes a series of…

Yeh, Y. -c.; Lin, C. S. – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2018
Although cultivating creativity is greatly emphasized in elementary school education and that digital games can be a promising tool for improving creativity, little research has been conducted to identify and explore how player-related factors might influence the learning outcomes of digital creativity games. This study identifies 3 individual…

Davis, K.; Sridharan, H.; Koepke, L.; Singh, S.; Boiko, R. – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2018
The current study investigated college students' experiences of a gamified informatics course. We surveyed 139 students aged 18-31 years (M = 20 years, SD = 1.5) enrolled in an undergraduate informatics course focused on social networking technologies. Surveys were conducted at 3 time points during the course (beginning, middle, and end). Overall,…

Conijn, R.; Van den Beemt, A.; Cuijpers, P. – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2018
Predicting student performance is a major tool in learning analytics. This study aims to identify how different measures of massive open online course (MOOC) data can be used to identify points of improvement in MOOCs. In the context of MOOCs, student performance is often defined as course completion. However, students could have other learning…

Ramirez-Arellano, Aldo; Acosta-Gonzaga, Elizabeth; Bory-Reyes, Juan; Hernández-Simón, Luis Manuel – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2018
In Mexico, approximately 504,000 students pursue a bachelor's degree by means of distance or blended programmes. However, only 42% of these students conclude their degree on time. In the context of blended learning, the focus of this research is to present a causal model, based on a theoretical framework, which describes the relationships…
