Nikou, S. A.; Economides, A. A. – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2018
Mobile-based micro-learning has gained a lot of attention lately, especially for work-based and corporate training. It combines features of mobile learning and micro-learning to deliver small learning units and short-term learning activities. The current study uses the lens of the Self-Determination Theory of motivation and proposes a series of…

Pijeira-Díaz, H.J.; Drachsler, H.; Kirschner, P.A.; Järvelä, S. – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2018
Low arousal states (especially boredom) have been shown to be more deleterious to learning than high arousal states, though the latter have received much more attention (e.g., test anxiety, confusion, and frustration). Aiming at profiling arousal in the classroom (how active students are) and examining how activation levels relate to achievement,…

Riehemann, J.; Jucks, R. – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2018
If learning materials are presented in either a conversational or formal language style, people will process them differently. This study reports an experiment in which 64 high school students watched an educational video in a massive open online course scenario in which the instructions were phrased either conversationally or formally. The video…

Salmerón, L.; Naumann, J.; García, V.; Fajardo, I. – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2017
When students solve problems on the Internet, they have to find a balance between quickly scanning large sections of information in web pages and deeply processing those that are relevant for the task. We studied how high school students articulate scanning and deeper processing of information while answering questions using a Wikipedia document,…

Zielinski, K.; Czekierda, L.; Malawski, F.; Stras, R.; Zielinski, S. – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2017
In this paper, we address the problem of an educational gap existing between high schools and universities: many students consider their choice of field of study as inappropriate, mostly due to insufficient information regarding the discipline and the university educational process. To solve this problem, we define an innovative, information and…

Lin, C.-C.; Guo, K.-H.; Lin, Y.-C. – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2016
This study aims at implementing a simple and effective remedial learning system. Based on fuzzy inference, a remedial learning material selection system is proposed for a digital logic course. Two learning concepts of the course have been used in the proposed system: number systems and combinational logic. We conducted an experiment to validate…
