Luik, Piret; Suviste, Reelika; Lepp, Marina; Palts, Tauno; Tõnisson, Eno; Säde, Merilin; Papli, Kaspar – British Journal of Educational Technology, 2019
Learners who enrol in massive open online courses (MOOCs) have different backgrounds and tend to have different motivations than learners in traditional courses. Based on value-expectancy theory, an instrument was developed to measure motivation for enrolling in a programming MOOC. A study with 1229 adult participants in Estonian-language…

Sangrá, Albert; Raffaghelli, Juliana Elisa; Guitert-Catasús, Montse – British Journal of Educational Technology, 2019
The concept of learning ecologies emerged in a context of educational change. While the "learning ecologies" construct has offered a broad semantic space for characterizing innovative ways of learning, it is also true that its potential to promote innovative educational interventions may have been hindered by this same broadness. Based…

Neroni, Joyce; Gijselaers, Hieronymus J. M.; Kirschner, Paul A.; Groot, Renate H. M. – British Journal of Educational Technology, 2015
Learning is crucial for everyone. The association between biological (eg, sleep, nutrition) and psychological factors (eg, test anxiety, goal orientation) and learning performance has been well established for children, adolescents and college students in traditional education. Evidence for these associations for adult distance students is lacking…

Ley, Tobias; Cook, John; Dennerlein, Sebastian; Kravcik, Milos; Kunzmann, Christine; Pata, Kai; Purma, Jukka; Sandars, John; Santos, Patricia; Schmidt, Andreas; Al-Smadi, Mohammad; Trattner, Christoph – British Journal of Educational Technology, 2014
Workplace learning happens in the process and context of work, is multi-episodic, often informal, problem based and takes place on a just-in-time basis. While this is a very effective means of delivery, it also does not scale very well beyond the immediate context. We review three types of technologies that have been suggested to scale learning…
