Bond, Melissa; Zawacki-Richter, Olaf; Nichols, Mark – British Journal of Educational Technology, 2019
Reflecting on 50 years of educational technology research, a content and authorship analysis was conducted of 1777 research article titles and abstracts, published in the "British Journal of Educational Technology" ("BJET") from 1970 to Issue 3, 2018. A text-mining tool (Leximancer) was used to identify key concepts and themes…

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…

Manathunga, Kalpani; Hernández-Leo, Davinia – British Journal of Educational Technology, 2018
Collaborative learning flow patterns (CLFPs) formulate best practices for the orchestration of activity sequences and collaboration mechanisms that can elicit fruitful social interactions. Mobile technology features offer opportunities to support interaction mediation and content accessibility. However, existing mobile collaborative learning…

Ozturk, Tugba H.; Hodgson, Vivien – British Journal of Educational Technology, 2017
In this paper, we argue that in order to get a fuller understanding of the complexity of conflict in democratic pedagogies in online and blended learning settings, it is important to know not only how to manage or resolve it, but also how it is triggered and can be avoided. The emancipatory nature of democratic pedagogies fosters differences, and…

Moreno, Valter; Cavazotte, Flavia; Alves, Isabela – British Journal of Educational Technology, 2017
Students' success in e-learning programs depends on how they adopt and embed technology into their learning activities. Drawing on the Technology Acceptance Model, we propose a framework to explain students' intention to use e-learning platforms effectively, that is, their intention to fully exploit system's functionalities in leaning processes,…

Sun, Jerry Chih-Yuan; Wu, Yu-Ting; Lee, Wei-I – British Journal of Educational Technology, 2017
The purpose of this study was to investigate the effect of the flipped classroom approach to OpenCourseWare instruction on students' self-regulation. OpenCourseWare was integrated into the flipped classroom model (experimental group) and distance learning (control group). Overall, 181 freshmen taking a physics course were allowed to choose their…

Rehn, Nicole; Maor, Dorit; McConney, Andrew – British Journal of Educational Technology, 2017
The purpose of this research is to unpack and learn from the experiences of teachers who deliver courses to remote secondary school students by videoconference. School districts are using videoconferencing to connect students and teachers who are separated geographically through regular live, real-time conferences. Previous studies have shown the…

Diep, Anh-Nguyet; Zhu, Chang; Struyven, Katrien; Blieck, Yves – British Journal of Educational Technology, 2017
Different blended learning (BL) modalities and the interaction effect between human and technological factors on student satisfaction need adequately researched to shed more light on successful BL implementation. The objective of the present article is three-fold: (1) to present a model to predict student satisfaction with BL programs, (2) to…

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…

Safford, Kimberly; Stinton, Julia – British Journal of Educational Technology, 2016
This research identifies and examines the challenges of blending digital distance and vocational learning for non-traditional and low-socio-economic status students who are new to university education. A survey of students in vocational primary education and early years qualifications in a distance university is illuminated by interviews with…

Huang, Xiaoxia; Chandra, Aruna; DePaolo, Concetta A.; Simmons, Lakisha L. – British Journal of Educational Technology, 2016
Transactional distance is an important pedagogical theory in distance education that calls for more empirical support. The purpose of this study was to verify the theory by operationalizing and examining the relationship of (1) dialogue, structure and learner autonomy to transactional distance, and (2) environmental factors and learner demographic…

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…

Krämer, Bernd J.; Neugebauer, Jonas; Magenheim, Johannes; Huppertz, Helga – British Journal of Educational Technology, 2015
Although many innovations exploiting web technologies have been suggested in distance higher education, very little original research exists investigating the impact of web-based learning environments on distance students' learning processes and outcomes. To close this gap, four sets of data have been collected in a distance-learning course:…
