Bardakci, Salih – Journal of Computing in Higher Education, 2018
This study explores the perception of exclusion in online social networks by synthesizing the Corresponding Fields Model (Helsper in "Commun Theory" 22(4):403-426, 2012). The predictors in the model, including access barriers, insecurity, usage competencies, and cultural mismatch, was empirically tested based on data from 480…

Shelton, Chris – Journal of Computing in Higher Education, 2018
When university faculty and students use technology, they do so in a specific context and researchers have acknowledged that in order to understand use (or non-use) of technology in higher education they need to account for this. However, although the importance of context is not questioned, there is little consensus over which contexts are…

Schuh, Kathy L.; Van Horne, Sam; Russell, Jae-eun – Journal of Computing in Higher Education, 2018
In this paper, we discuss the activity systems of students and instructors who used an interactive e-textbook in their instructional activities. Data included instructor interviews and student journals about e-textbook use in eight university courses. Exploration of the data through a cultural-historical activity theory lens indicated that…

Lee, Eunbae; Harris, R. Lainie Wilson – Journal of Computing in Higher Education, 2018
While understanding of domain specific vocabularies is essential in content learning, little research informs teaching practices for glossary learning. This study examines the relationship among vocabulary learning, student autonomy, and course performance through the theoretical framework of self-determination theory and second language…

Frisch, Jennifer Kreps; Jackson, Paula C.; Murray, Meg C. – Journal of Computing in Higher Education, 2018
We developed an inquiry-driven course to enable students to develop skills they need to effectively use large amounts of information available on the Internet (including evaluating information, synthesizing, and collaborating) and engage more deeply with science content. Student teams collaborated to construct a scientific question, research what…

Shang, Hui-Fang – Journal of Computing in Higher Education, 2018
The ability to read English efficiently and effectively is important for medical students because they have to read a lot of medical texts published in English. This is challenging especially for non-native speakers. This study measures Taiwanese medical students' self-perceived use of metacognitive strategies while reading printed texts and…

Schwarzenberg, Pablo; Navon, Jaime; Nussbaum, Miguel; Pérez-Sanagustín, Mar; Caballero, Daniela – Journal of Computing in Higher Education, 2018
The flipped classroom has shown a positive effect on academic performance and student satisfaction. However, there are relatively few studies that help us understand when or why this method has a positive effect on students, so as to aid the design of a flipped class. In this study, an instrument for assessing the student learning experience in…

Kellen, Katherine; Antonenko, Pavlo – Journal of Computing in Higher Education, 2018
This study addressed some of the challenges of supporting self-regulated learning in community college online English composition. This course used a flexible learning design, providing a choice of procedural scaffolds to support self-regulation of learning tasks by students. The purpose of this study was to determine the relationship between the…

Henrie, Curtis R.; Bodily, Robert; Larsen, Ross; Graham, Charles R. – Journal of Computing in Higher Education, 2018
This study examines the relationship between log data of student activity in learning management systems and self-reported student engagement survey scores. Log data has the potential to serve as a meaningful proxy for survey scores. Should this be the case, log data could be used as a minimally disruptive and scalable approach to quickly identify…

Matthews, Michael T.; Yanchar, Stephen C. – Journal of Computing in Higher Education, 2018
This study employed a hermeneutic investigative approach to determine instructional designers' underlying views of learner responsibility for their own learning, and how those views informed design practice. Prior research has examined how instructional designers spend their time, make decisions, use theory, and solve problems, but have not…

Klein, James D.; Mendenhall, Anne – Journal of Computing in Higher Education, 2018
The purpose of this paper is to describe a case study conducted to examine the application of Merrill's First Principles of Instruction ("Educ Technol Res Dev" 50(3):43-59, 2002, "First principles of instruction," Pfeiffer, San Francisco, 2012) to determine how they were implemented during a fast-paced project that required the…

Slagter van Tryon, Patricia J.; McDonald, Jason; Hirumi, Atsusi – Journal of Computing in Higher Education, 2018
The ability of novice instructional designers to become skilled problem-solvers, who select and apply appropriate instructional design (ID) models in their work environments, are key competencies generally sought after in introductory ID courses. Yet, the proliferation of ID models, coupled with varied philosophies and practices about how ID is…

Lowell, Victoria L.; Ashby, Iryna V. – Journal of Computing in Higher Education, 2018
Instructional designers (IDs) frequently collaborate with subject matter experts, peer IDs, and other professionals (Intentional Futures 2016). Such collaboration often requires an exchange of feedback on design plans and work completed with and for others, as well as self-assessment of one's own skills and work during the design process…

Stefaniak, Jill; Baaki, John; Hoard, Brent; Stapleton, Laura – Journal of Computing in Higher Education, 2018
Needs assessment is a fundamental step in the instructional design process where instructional designers must determine the difference between the current state of affairs and a desired state. Throughout the needs assessment process, the instructional designer must feel comfortable making decisions and assumptions based on the information that has…
