Gibbons, Andrew S.; Langton, Matthew B. – Journal of Computing in Higher Education, 2016
A theory of design layers proposed by Gibbons ("An Architectural Approach to Instructional Design." Routledge, New York, 2014) asserts that each layer of an instructional design is related to a body of theory closely associated with the concerns of that particular layer. This study focuses on one layer, the control layer, examining…

Gallagher, Silvia Elena; Savage, Timothy – Journal of Computing in Higher Education, 2016
Massive Online Open Courses (MOOCs) can create large scale communities of learners who collaborate, interact and discuss learning materials and activities. MOOCs are often delivered multiple times with similar content to different cohorts of learners. However, research into the differences of learner communication, behavior and expectation between…

Sidhu, Gurnam Kaur; Kaur, Sarjit; Fook, Chan Yuen – Journal of Computing in Higher Education, 2016
In order to build and empower human capital development, the Malaysian Ministry of Education devised a plan referred to as "MyBrain15". Under this plan, Malaysia hopes to produce a total of 60,000 doctoral degree holders by 2023. However, high attrition and low completion rates among postgraduate students to date have hindered the noble…

Kay, Robin; Lauricella, Sharon – Journal of Computing in Higher Education, 2016
The laptop computer is considered one of the most used and important technological devices in higher education, yet limited systematic research has been conducted to develop a measure of laptop use in college and university. The purpose of the following study was to develop a research-based, theoretically grounded scale to assess student use of…

Van Horne, Sam; Murniati, Cecilia Titiek – Journal of Computing in Higher Education, 2016
Although post-secondary educational institutions are incorporating more active learning classrooms (ALCs) that support collaborative learning, researchers have less often examined the cultural obstacles to adoption of those environments. In this qualitative research study, we adopted the conceptual framework of activity theory to examine the…

Hsia, Jung-Wen – Journal of Computing in Higher Education, 2016
Since mobile devices have become cheaper, easily accessible, powerful, and popular and the cost of wireless access has declined gradually, mobile learning (m-learning) has begun to spread rapidly. To further improve the effectiveness and efficiency of m-learning for university students, it is critical to understand whether they use m-learning.…

Bere, Aaron; Rambe, Patient – Journal of Computing in Higher Education, 2016
Research on technology adoption often profiles device usability (such as perceived usefulness) and user dispositions (such as perceived ease of use) as the prime determinants of effective technology adoption. Since any process of technology adoption cannot be conceived out of its situated contexts, this paper argues that any pre-occupation with…

Gay, Glenda H. – Journal of Computing in Higher Education, 2016
Online instructors in higher education play a key role in the success or failure of electronic learning systems (ELSs). Their expertise in and use of technology tools in ELSs influence the quality of information presented, their system use and satisfaction during course delivery. This study adapted Holsapple and Lee-Post's ("Decis Sci J Innov…

Zervas, Panagiotis; Tsourlidaki, Eleftheria; Cao, Yiwei; Sotiriou, Sofoklis; Sampson, Demetrios G.; Faltin, Nils – Journal of Computing in Higher Education, 2016
Online labs (OLs) constitute digital educational tools which can have a significant role in supporting science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) teachers in their daily teaching practice. Designing STEM lessons supported by specific OLs is a challenging task and thus, it is useful for STEM teachers to be able to share their lesson…

Lin, Lin; Mills, Leila A.; Ifenthaler, Dirk – Journal of Computing in Higher Education, 2016
Collaborative problem-solving is often not a sequential process; instead, it can involve tasking switching or dual tasking (i.e., multitasking) activities in that the collaborators need to shift their attention between the targeted problems and the conversations they carry on with their collaborators. It is not known to what extent the…

Knezek, Gerald; Christensen, Rhonda – Journal of Computing in Higher Education, 2016
An expansion of the Will, Skill, Tool Model of Technology Integration to include teacher's pedagogical style is proposed by the authors as a means of advancing the predictive power of the model for level of classroom technology integration to beyond 90%. Suggested advantages to this expansion include more precise identification of areas to be…
