Sun, Koun-Tem; Lin, Ching-Ling; Wang, Sheng-Min – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2010
The relative positions of the sun, moon, and earth, their movements, and their relationships are abstract and difficult to understand astronomical concepts in elementary school science. This study proposes a three-dimensional (3-D) virtual reality (VR) model named the "Sun and Moon System." This e-learning resource was designed by…

Lee, Young-Jin – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2010
With a rapid increase in the number of people who own a handheld device, such as an iPod, education researchers and administrators started looking for a way to use a handheld device to foster student learning. However, the current use of a mobile device in education is quite limited. With few exceptions, it is mostly used as a simple media player…

Smith, Glenn Gordon; Ferguson, David – Australasian Journal of Educational Technology, 2005
Qualitative studies indicate that mathematics does not work well in e-learning. The current study used quantitative methods to investigate more objectively the extent of problems with mathematics in e-learning. The authors used student attrition as a simple measure of student satisfaction and course viability in two studies, one investigating…

Hu, Dawei; Chen, Wei; Zeng, Qingtian; Hao, Tianyong; Min, Feng; Wenyin, Liu – International Journal of Distance Education Technologies, 2008
A personalized e-learning framework based on a user-interactive question-answering (QA) system is proposed, in which a user-modeling approach is used to capture personal information of students and a personalized answer extraction algorithm is proposed for personalized automatic answering. In our approach, a topic ontology (or concept hierarchy)…

Hershcovits, Haviv; Vilenchik, Dan; Gal, Kobi – IEEE Transactions on Learning Technologies, 2020
This paper studies students engagement in e-learning environments in which students work independently and solve problems without external supervision. We propose a new method to infer engagement patterns of users in such self-directed environments. We view engagement as a continuous process in time, measured along chosen axes that are derived…

Askhamov, Ayrat A.; Konysheva, Aliya V.; Gapsalamov, Almaz R. – International Journal of Environmental and Science Education, 2016
The urgency of the issue discussed in this article is determined by the fact that the modern education model aims at forming a competitive and creative personality of a student striving for continuous self-improvement and self-development. It should be emphasized that mathematical training is an integral part of engineering education. In this…

Baranyi, Máté; Molontay, Roland – Interactive Learning Environments, 2021
Studying the effectiveness of remedial courses in higher education has attracted a lot of interest from educational researchers and practitioners. Remediation is associated with significant economic and social costs while the results are usually dubious. In this paper, we apply a widely used method called Regression Discontinuity Design (RDD) to…

Panskyi, Taras; Rowinska, Zdzislawa – Informatics in Education, 2021
This paper presents an innovative educational approach to organizing the out-of-school teaching of programming in middle childhood. The proposed DGBL model includes three distinct educational phases, i.e. learning visual programming, programming and robotics, and programming and electronics. The research was carried out during the school years of…
