Cerezo, Rebeca; Bogarín, Alejandro; Esteban, María; Romero, Cristóbal – Journal of Computing in Higher Education, 2020
Content assessment has broadly improved in e-learning scenarios in recent decades. However, the e-Learning process can give rise to a spatial and temporal gap that poses interesting challenges for assessment of not only content, but also students' acquisition of core skills such as self-regulated learning. Our objective was to discover students'…

Aldowah, Hanan; Al-Samarraie, Hosam; Alzahrani, Ahmed Ibrahim; Alalwan, Nasser – Journal of Computing in Higher Education, 2020
Massive open online courses (MOOCs) are among the latest e-learning initiative that have gained a wide popularity among many universities. Student dropout in MOOCs is a major concern in the higher education and policy-making communities. Most student dropout is caused by factors outside the institution's control. In this study, a multiple-criteria…

Parry, Douglas A.; le Roux, Daniel B.; Cornelissen, Laurenz A. – Journal of Computing in Higher Education, 2020
High levels of digital media use have become a feature of university lectures. While certainly capable of supporting learning outcomes, studies indicate that, when media use is off-task, it presents as a disruption, distracting both users and those around them from academic tasks. In this study an exploratory, mixed-methods assessment of a media…

Cheng, Zui; Richardson, Jennifer C.; Newby, Timothy J. – Journal of Computing in Higher Education, 2020
Students' goal-setting skills are highly related to their academic learning performance and level of motivation. A review of the literature demonstrated limited research on both applicable goal-setting strategies in higher education and the support of technology in facilitating goal-setting processes. Addressing these two gaps, this study explored…

Tsai, Hung-Hsu; Chang, Chih-Tsan; Hou, Xin-Yu; Yong, You-Ming; Chiou, Kuo-Ching; Yu, Pao-Ta – Journal of Computing in Higher Education, 2019
The paper proposes an interactive student response portfolio (ISREP) system with iBeacon and web-socket technology, which supports flipped-classroom learning activities in traditional classrooms. The design of the ISREP system aims at promote interactions in classroom learning (CL). It offers APPs and web-interface functions for students and…

Xie, Haoran; Zou, Di; Zhang, Ruofei; Wang, Minhong; Kwan, Reggie – Journal of Computing in Higher Education, 2019
It is widely acknowledged that the acquisition of vocabulary is the foundation of learning English. With the rapid development of information technologies in recent years, e-learning systems have been widely adopted for English as a Second Language (ESL) Learning. However, a limitation of conventional word learning systems is that the prior…

Hui, Yan Keung; Li, Chen; Qian, Sheng; Kwok, Lam For – Journal of Computing in Higher Education, 2019
In educational psychology, the theories of interest and self-determination have been well studied to find the relationships between learning attitudes and learning outcomes. However, the instructional design and the learning behaviors are the two missing elements which have not been fully investigated in the learning process. Therefore, we…

MacLeod, Jason; Yang, Harrison Hao; Shi, Yinghui – Journal of Computing in Higher Education, 2019
Student-to-student connectedness is promoted by active, student-centered learning processes. It is a socio-psychological result of interpersonal communication and behavior in the classroom, which emulates belonging, cohesiveness, and supportiveness among peers. Currently, two survey instruments exist--Dwyer et al.'s (Commun Res Rep 21(3):264-272,…

Nykopp, Minna; Marttunen, Miika; Erkens, Gijsbert – Journal of Computing in Higher Education, 2019
This study investigated how university students (n = 28) coordinated their collaborative online writing and what kinds of coordination profiles were found among the students. Further, the study examined the quality of the essays produced by groups of students varying in their combinations of coordination profiles. Students' written comments on…

Lin, Shu-Yuan; Xie, Ying – Journal of Computing in Higher Education, 2019
Student-generated tagclouds provided an intuitive overview of a group of learners' collective knowledge. Although such tagclouds may have the potential to be used as effective learning tools, it has not been clear how students use this tool for knowledge construction. In this paper, we report a two-stage study that investigated college students'…
