Butz, Nikolaus T.; Stupnisky, Robert H.; Pekrun, Reinhard – Research in Learning Technology, 2015
Synchronous hybrid delivery (simultaneously teaching on-campus and online students using web conferencing) is becoming more common; however, little is known about how students experience emotions in this learning environment. Based on Pekrun's (2006) control-value theory of emotions, the dual purpose of this study was first to compare synchronous…

Casteleyn, Jordi; Mottart, Andre; Valcke, Martin – Research in Learning Technology, 2015
Instead of the traditional set of slides, the visual aids of a presentation can now be graphic organisers (concept maps, knowledge maps, mind maps) on an infinite canvas. Constructing graphic organisers has a beneficial impact on learning, but this topic has not been studied in the context of giving a presentation. The present study examined this…
