Yang, Jiumin; Zhu, Fangfang; Guo, Peiyu; Pi, Zhongling – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2020
An instructor's gestures have an effect not only on students' learning but also on teaching itself. In two experiments, this study tested whether instructors' use of gestures while recording video lectures affected their teaching performance, stress, and cognitive load. In Experiment 1, participants recorded video lectures with gestures or without…

Wang, Tzu-Ling; Tseng, Yi-Kuan – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2020
The purpose of this study was to investigate not only the effectiveness of dynamic versus static visualizations on learning star motions but also the influence of students' spatial abilities with these two types of visualizations on their learning. We assigned 155 fifth-grade students to either a dynamic or a static condition. We used a science…

Weng, Cathy; Otanga, Sarah; Weng, Apollo; Tran, Khanh Nguyen Phuong – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2020
The purpose of this research was to compare the effectiveness of physical and virtual tangrams on preschool children's learning engagement and achievement. Children listened to an e-storybook narration and solved puzzles individually. The experimental group (N = 31) completed puzzles embedded in the e-storybook using virtual tangrams, while the…

Alonso-Fernández, Cristina; Martínez-Ortiz, Iván; Caballero, Rafael; Freire, Manuel; Fernández-Manjón, Baltasar – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2020
Serious games have proven to be a powerful tool in education to engage, motivate, and help students learn. However, the change in student knowledge after playing games is usually measured with traditional (paper) prequestionnaires-postquestionnaires. We propose a combination of game learning analytics and data mining techniques to predict…

Chen, Ming-Puu; Lord, Asta Y. Z.; Cheng, Yu-Yao; Tai, Ku-Chou; Pan, Wen-Harn – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2020
Reflective judgement is crucial for medical-related practitioners in dealing with controversial issues. However, the conformity phenomenon is likely to occur and interfere with reflective judgement learning during interactive activities. Effective strategies are required to moderate the conformity behaviour tendency (CBT) and improve reflective…

Van Ginkel, Stan; Ruiz, Dominic; Mononen, Asko; Karaman, Cendel; de Keijzer, Ander; Sitthiworachart, Jirarat – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2020
Feedback plays a central role in learning. Crucial to this is the nature and timing of the feedback. This experimental study explores the efficacy of immediate computer-mediated feedback within a virtual reality environment designed to facilitate the development of pre-university students' presentation skills. Two conditions were established to…

Thai, Ngoc Thuy Thi; De Wever, Bram; Valcke, Martin – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2020
This study compares four learning environments: face-to-face learning (F2F), fully e-learning (EL), blended learning (BL), and flipped classroom (FC) with respect to students' learning performance. Moreover, this present research studies changes in perceived flexibility, intrinsic motivation, self-efficacy beliefs of students, and the interaction…

Tsai, Yu-Ling; Tsai, Chin-Chung – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2020
This meta-analysis investigates the relative effectiveness of game-based science learning against other instructional methods (Gameplay design) as well as against science game variants enriched with mechanisms (Game-mechanism design). An overall medium effect size for Gameplay design (k = 14, N[subscript es] = 14, g[subscript RE] = 0.646, p =…
