Vaquero, Luis M.; Rodero-Merino, Luis; Cuadrado, Félix – British Journal of Educational Technology, 2019
Online learning platforms offer students the option of sharing content. They have become common tools in many universities over the last 10 years. But there is little information about how content spreads in the classroom, ie, how information cascades appear and evolve and what factors are relevant for the formation of cascades. This work analyses…

Duan, Jinju; Xie, Kui; Hawk, Nathan A.; Yu, Shengquan; Wang, Minjuan – British Journal of Educational Technology, 2019
This study adds a new perspective to the observations about connectivist interaction behavior in cMOOCs by extending the notion of network building from the perspective of individuals. We explore the possibility of building a learning network named Personal Social Knowledge Network (PSKN) to support in the monitoring of learning performance and…

Wang, Yang; Liu, Qingtang; Chen, Wenli; Wang, Qiyun; Stein, David – British Journal of Educational Technology, 2019
This study investigated whether video lectures instructed by a heightened level of expressiveness instructor were better than those instructed by a conventional level of expressiveness instructor or audio-only in promoting students' online learning, and what kind of effects do instructor's facial expressions have on students' learning. Three…

Sun, Yongqiang; Ni, Linghong; Zhao, Yiming; Shen, Xiao-Liang; Wang, Nan – British Journal of Educational Technology, 2019
Although Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) attract millions of people to enroll in their courses, the completion rate for most courses is very low. A majority of MOOCs students are not fully engaged in MOOCs, thus leading them to quit in the early stage of the courses. Therefore, it is important to investigate students' engagement in MOOCs.…

Huisman, Bart; Admiraal, Wilfried; Pilli, Olga; van de Ven, Maarten; Saab, Nadira – British Journal of Educational Technology, 2018
In a relatively short period of time, massive open online courses (MOOCs) have become a considerable topic of research and debate, and the number of available MOOCs is rapidly growing. Along with issues of formal recognition and accreditation, this growth in the number of MOOCs being developed increases the relevance of assessment quality. Within…

Ragusa, Angela T.; Crampton, Andrea – British Journal of Educational Technology, 2017
In an era of shifting social and communication norms, where 76% of Americans surveyed reported they reached for tablets to check online communication before saying "good morning" to partners (Kensington.com, 2014), online education's increased popularity as a "lifestyle" choice is unsurprising (Ragusa, 2007). Qualitative…
