Saito, Tomohiro; Watanobe, Yutaka – International Journal of Distance Education Technologies, 2020
Programming education has recently received increased attention due to growing demand for programming and information technology skills. However, a lack of teaching materials and human resources presents a major challenge to meeting this demand. One way to compensate for a shortage of trained teachers is to use machine learning techniques to…

Shi, Guimin; Yang, Sheng; Liu, Changyong; Meng, Shimin; Luo, Zhiming; Li, Shaozi – International Journal of Distance Education Technologies, 2020
In this article, a cognitive framework for observing learning activities based on human-computer coupling is proposed. The observation is based on the vectorization of a learning situation along with human-computer interaction factors. An evolutionary high-dimensional topology of learning cognitive flow is introduced for human-computer…

Liu, Ming; Pardo, Abelardo; Liu, Li – International Journal of Distance Education Technologies, 2017
Online collaborative writing tools provide an efficient way to complete a writing task. However, existing tools only focus on technological affordances and ignore the importance of social affordances in a collaborative learning environment. This article describes a learning analytic system that analyzes writing behaviors, and creates…

Mazur, Michal; Karolczak, Krzysztof; Rzepka, Rafal; Araki, Kenji – International Journal of Distance Education Technologies, 2016
Vocabulary plays an important part in second language learning and there are many existing techniques to facilitate word acquisition. One of these methods is code-switching, or mixing the vocabulary of two languages in one sentence. In this paper the authors propose an experimental system for computer-assisted English vocabulary learning in…

Lin, Che-Hung; Yen, Yu-Ren; Wu, Pai-Lu – International Journal of Distance Education Technologies, 2015
The aim of this study was to develop a store service operations practice course based on simulation-based training of video clip instruction. The action research of problem-solving strategies employed for teaching are by simulated store operations. The counter operations course unit used as an example, this study developed 4 weeks of subunits for…

O'Donnell, Eileen; Lawless, Séamus; Sharp, Mary; Wade, Vincent P. – International Journal of Distance Education Technologies, 2015
The realisation of personalised e-learning to suit an individual learner's diverse learning needs is a concept which has been explored for decades, at great expense, but is still not achievable by non-technical authors. This research reviews the area of personalised e-learning and notes some of the technological challenges which developers may…

Flanagan, Brendan; Yin, Chengjiu; Hirokawa, Sachio; Hashimoto, Kiyota; Tabata, Yoshiyuki – International Journal of Distance Education Technologies, 2013
In this paper, the entries of Lang-8, which is a Social Networking Site (SNS) site for learning and practicing foreign languages, were analyzed and found to contain similar rates of errors for most error categories reported in previous research. These similarly rated errors were then processed using an algorithm to determine corrections suggested…

Hou, Bin; Ogata, Hiroaki; Kunita, Toma; Li, Mengmeng; Uosaki, Noriko – International Journal of Distance Education Technologies, 2013
The authors' research defines a ubiquitous learning log (ULLO) as a digital record of what a learner has learned in the daily life using ubiquitous technologies. In their previous works, the authors proposed a model named LORE (Log--Organize--Recall--Evaluate) to describe the learning process of ULLO and developed a system named SCROLL to…

Liu, Song; Liu, Peng; Urano, Yoshiyori – International Journal of Distance Education Technologies, 2013
Practice and research in the composition education that is using computer and network have been more and more active. Through online composition system, a large amount of written texts produced by students and teachers can be collected. This kind of information is called a learner corpus, which is important in second language education because the…

Liu, Jun; Sha, Sha; Zheng, Qinghua; Zhang, Wei – International Journal of Distance Education Technologies, 2012
Assigning difficulty level indicators to the knowledge units helps the learners plan their learning activities more efficiently. This paper focuses on how to use the topology of a knowledge map to compute and rank the difficulty levels of knowledge units. Firstly, the authors present the hierarchical structure and properties of the knowledge map.…
