Maycock, Keith W. – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2019
The case study was carried out at a third-level college in Ireland to investigate the performance of a student population completing a first year computer architecture module using a flipped learning approach against a traditional chalk and talk approach. The study was completed over a 2-year period with the same lecturer delivering both…

Almasseri, Mohammed; AlHojailan, Mohammed I. – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2019
The study aims to identify the effect of a flipped classroom approach designed according to the cognitive theory of multimedia learning on the academic achievements of eighth-grade students (aged 14 years) in Saudi Arabia in computer science. To this end, a quasi-experimental design was used, with a sample of 67 students; 33 students were assigned…

Yang, Yuqin – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2019
This study aimed to examine the role and process of reflective assessment supported by the Knowledge Connections Analyzer in helping low academic achievers to develop epistemic agency in knowledge building. The participants were 33 ninth-grade low achievers from a visual arts course in Hong Kong. A comparison class of 33 students, taught by the…

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…

Ramirez-Arellano, Aldo; Acosta-Gonzaga, Elizabeth; Bory-Reyes, Juan; Hernández-Simón, Luis Manuel – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2018
In Mexico, approximately 504,000 students pursue a bachelor's degree by means of distance or blended programmes. However, only 42% of these students conclude their degree on time. In the context of blended learning, the focus of this research is to present a causal model, based on a theoretical framework, which describes the relationships…

Pi, Z.; Hong, J.; Yang, J. – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2017
One of the most commonly used forms of video lectures is a combination of an instructor's image and accompanying lecture slides as a picture-in-picture. As the image size of the instructor varies significantly across video lectures, and so do the learning outcomes associated with this technology, the influence of the instructor's image size should…

Yang, X.; Guo, X.; Yu, S. – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2016
This study investigates the quality of course content, behavioural patterns of students and learning performance in teaching of student-generated content (SGC). A total of 49 third-year university students in educational technology participated in this study. By combining the methods of questionnaire, lag sequence analysis and interview, the study…

Lin, J-W.; Lai, Y-C.; Lai, Y-C.; Chang, L-C. – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2016
Most systems for training self-regulated learning (SRL) behaviour focus on the provision of a learner-centred environment. Such systems repeat the training process and place learners alone to experience that process iteratively. According to the relevant literature, external scaffolds are more promising for effective SRL training. In this work,…

Carpio Cañada, J.; Mateo Sanguino, T. J.; Merelo Guervós, J. J.; Rivas Santos, V. M. – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2015
Limitations of formal learning (e.g., one-way communication, rigid methodology, results-oriented approach) can significantly influence the motivation and expectation of students, thus resulting in an academic progress reduction. In order to make learning processes more playful and motivating, this paper presents a new educational experience…

Mo, D.; Zhang, L.; Wang, J.; Huang, W.; Shi, Y.; Boswell, M.; Rozelle, S. – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2015
Computer assisted learning (CAL) programs have been shown to be effective in improving educational outcomes. However, the existing studies on CAL have almost all been conducted over a short period of time. There is very little evidence on how the impact evolves over time. In response, we conducted a clustered randomized experiment involving 2741…

De Witte, K.; Haelermans, C.; Rogge, N. – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2015
Computer-assisted instruction (CAI) programs are considered as a way to improve learning outcomes of students. However, little is known on the schools who implement such programs as well as on the effectiveness of similar information and communication technology programs. We provide a literature review that pays special attention to the existing…
