Gu, Xiaoqing; Cai, Huiying – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2019
A semantic diagram tool is proposed in this study in order to structure collaborative problem solving (CPS) based on cognitive load theory (CLT). To investigate its effects on transaction cost and the deepening of user understandings, a comparative quasi-experiment was designed and conducted with 49 participants from a university in East China.…

Hewson, Claire; Charlton, John P. – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2019
The use of e-assessment methods raises important concerns regarding the reliability and validity of these methods. Potential threats to validity include mode effects and the possible influence of computer-related attitudes. Although numerous studies have now investigated the validity of online assessments in noncourse-based contexts, few studies…

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…

Whitelock-Wainwright, Alexander; Gaševic, Dragan; Tejeiro, Ricardo; Tsai, Yi-Shan; Bennett, Kate – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2019
Student engagement within the development of learning analytics services in Higher Education is an important challenge to address. Despite calls for greater inclusion of stakeholders, there still remains only a small number of investigations into students' beliefs and expectations towards learning analytics services. Therefore, this paper presents…

Heckel, Christian; Ringeisen, Tobias – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2019
The current study validated the proposed structure of relationships among outcome-related achievement emotions (pride and anxiety), their cognitive predictors (appraisals und online-learning-related self-efficacy), and learning outcomes (competence gain and satisfaction) in the context of online learning in higher education. On the basis of a…

Papadopoulos, Pantelis M.; Natsis, Antonis; Obwegeser, Nikolaus; Weinberger, Armin – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2019
The aim of the present study (n = 113) was to examine how (objective and subjective) information on peers' preparation, confidence, and past performance can support students in answering correctly in audience response systems (aka clickers). The result analysis shows that in the "challenging" questions, in which answers diverged,…

Zibin, Aseel; Altakhaineh, Abdel Rahman Mitib – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2019
This study investigates the effect of blended learning on the development of clause combining as an aspect of the acquisition of written discourse by Jordanians who are learning English as a foreign language. Sixty participants majoring in English language at the University of Jordan took part in this study. The participants were divided into…

Iio, Takamasa; Maeda, Ryota; Ogawa, Kohei; Yoshikawa, Yuichiro; Ishiguro, Hiroshi; Suzuki, Kaori; Aoki, Tomohiro; Maesaki, Miharu; Hama, Mika – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2019
This paper reports how robot-assisted language learning (RALL) impacts Japanese adults' English speaking skills. With existing research on RALL focusing on children, there is little evidence indicating RALL's effects on adults. We developed a RALL system comprising a robot, a tablet, and designed learning materials for speaking practice. To…

Wu, Bian; Hu, Yiling; Ruis, A. R.; Wang, Minhong – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2019
Computational thinking (CT), the ability to devise computational solutions for real-life problems, has received growing attention from both educators and researchers. To better improve university students' CT competence, collaborative programming is regarded as an effective learning approach. However, how novice programmers develop CT competence…

Stárková, Tereza; Lukavský, Jirí; Javora, Ondrej; Brom, Cyril – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2019
Anthropomorphizing graphical elements in multimedia learning materials improves learning outcomes. The reasons for enhanced learning are unclear. We extended a seminal anthropomorphism study in order to examine whether the effect of anthropomorphisms on learning outcomes, both immediate and delayed, is caused by the anthropomorphized elements'…

Wu, Shaoqun; Fitzgerald, Alannah; Yu, Alex; Witten, Ian – International Journal of Computer-Assisted Language Learning and Teaching, 2019
Learning collocations is one of the most challenging aspects of language learning as there are literally hundreds of thousands of possibilities for combining words. Corpus consultation with concordancers has been recognized in the literature as an established way for language learners to study and explore collocations at their own pace and in…

Barth, Ingrid; Spector-Cohen, Elana; Sitman, Rosalie; Jiang, Guhuai; Liu, Fang; Xu, Yan – International Journal of Computer-Assisted Language Learning and Teaching, 2019
Although open educational resources (OERs) can help bridge high school-university vocabulary gaps, central questions remain unanswered regarding effective design that enables students to go beyond the "small chunks" that typically characterize vocabulary learning in mobile learning environments (MLEs). This bi-national study adopted a…

Caruso, Marinella; Fraschini, Nicola; Kuuse, Sabine – International Journal of Computer-Assisted Language Learning and Teaching, 2019
Feedback is one of the most important influences on second language learning. While much research has been undertaken in the field of corrective feedback, the study of student engagement with feedback in languages remains understudied. This article addresses the need for more interactive, effective and time-saving feedback, achieving more student…

Xu, Hongying – International Journal of Computer-Assisted Language Learning and Teaching, 2019
The flipped classroom model (FC), as a new instructional approach, has been implemented by different disciplines over the past few years. However, the use of this model is still in its infancy in the field of foreign language education. The present study explored the efficacy of using the FC model in facilitating the acquisition of grammar among…
