Whitworth, David E.; Wright, Kate – British Journal of Educational Technology, 2015
In science education, laboratory practicals are frequently assessed through submission of a report. A large increase in student numbers necessitated us adapting a traditional practical report into an online test with automated marking. The assessment was designed to retain positive features of the traditional laboratory report but with added…

Gutierrez-Santiuste, Elba; Gallego-Arrufat, Maria-Jesus – British Journal of Educational Technology, 2015
This study investigates the phases of development of synchronous and asynchronous virtual communication produced in a community of inquiry (CoI) by analyzing the internal structure of each intervention in the forum and each chat session to determine the evolution of their social, cognitive and teaching character. It also analyzes the participating…

Doolittle, Peter E.; Bryant, Lauren H.; Chittum, Jessica R. – British Journal of Educational Technology, 2015
The construction of asynchronous learning environments often involves the creation of self-paced multimedia instructional episodes that provide the learner with control over the pacing of instruction (segmentation); however, does the amount of segmentation impact learning? This study explored the effects of the degree of segmentation on recall and…

Casquero, Oskar; Ovelar, Ramón; Romo, Jesús; Benito, Manuel – British Journal of Educational Technology, 2015
An interesting aspect in the current literature about learning networks is the shift of focus from the understanding of the "whole network" of a course to the examination of the "personal networks" of individual students. This line of research is relatively new, based on small-scale studies and diverse analysis techniques,…

Gorissen, Pierre; van Bruggen, Jan; Jochems, Wim – British Journal of Educational Technology, 2015
Students more and more have access to online recordings of the lectures they attend at universities. The volume and length of these recorded lectures however make them difficult to navigate. Research shows that students primarily watch the recorded lectures while preparing for their exams. They do watch the full recorded lectures, but review only…

Cooper, Darren; Higgins, Steve – British Journal of Educational Technology, 2015
The use of instructional videos to teach clinical skills is an ever growing area of e-learning based upon observational learning that is cited as one of the most basic yet powerful learning strategies. The aim of the current study is to evaluate the effectiveness of online instructional videos for the acquisition and demonstration of cognitive,…

Hong, Yi-Chun; Choi, Ikseon – British Journal of Educational Technology, 2015
Reflection is a critical factor in solving design problems. Using good methods to observe designers' reflection is essential to inform the design of the learning environments that support the development of design problem-solving skills. In this study, we have developed and validated a novel self-reporting questionnaire as an efficient instrument…

Garcia, Elaine; Elbeltagi, Ibrahim; Brown, Mel; Dungay, Kerry – British Journal of Educational Technology, 2015
While the use of Web 2.0 tools and specifically blogs is becoming increasingly popular within higher education (HE) and has been shown to promote learning, relatively little is known about the manner in which such tools may affect how teaching and learning may change as a result of the use of such tools. It is within this context that a…

Veletsianos, George; Collier, Amy; Schneider, Emily – British Journal of Educational Technology, 2015
Researchers describe with increasing confidence "what" they observe participants doing in massive open online courses (MOOCs). However, our understanding of learner activities in open courses is limited by researchers' extensive dependence on log file analyses and clickstream data to make inferences about learner behaviors. Further, the…

Kovanovic, Vitomir; Joksimovic, Srecko; Gaševic, Dragan; Siemens, George; Hatala, Marek – British Journal of Educational Technology, 2015
One of the striking differences between massive open online courses (MOOCs) and previous innovations in the education technology field is the unprecedented interest and involvement of the general public. As MOOCs address pressing problems in higher education and the broader educational practice, awareness of the general public debate around MOOCs…

Chang, Ray I.; Hung, Yu Hsin; Lin, Chun Fu – British Journal of Educational Technology, 2015
With the rapid development of web techniques, information and communication technology is being increasingly used in curricula, and learning portfolios can be automatically retrieved and maintained as learners interact through e-learning platforms. Further, massive open online courses (MOOCs), which apply such technology to provide open access to…

Canal, Luisa; Ghislandi, Patrizia; Micciolo, Rocco – British Journal of Educational Technology, 2015
In this study, the participation of 119 students in an online asynchronous forum as part of an academic course on statistical methods was evaluated. The pattern of accesses during the course was analyzed by means of the cumulative mean function. Taking into account the times (hours) at which accesses occurred, it is possible to achieve more…

Novak, Elena; Tassell, Janet Lynne – British Journal of Educational Technology, 2015
This dataset includes a series of 30 education-related majors' performance measures before and after they completed a 10-hour video game practice in a computer lab. The goal of the experimental study was to examine the effects of action video gaming on students' mathematics performance and mathematics anxiety as mediated by the effect of attention…

Chickerur, Satyadhyan; Joshi, Kartik – British Journal of Educational Technology, 2015
Emotion detection using facial images is a technique that researchers have been using for the last two decades to try to analyze a person's emotional state given his/her image. Detection of various kinds of emotion using facial expressions of students in educational environment is useful in providing insight into the effectiveness of tutoring…
