Meehan, Maria; McCallig, John – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2019
We apply Carroll's model of school learning, which theorizes about the relationship between time and learning, to motivate the design of a large, first-year, university mathematics course, where students have the choice to attend lectures and/or watch online videos. The theoretical model informs how the course and resources are designed in order…

Kolpashnikova, Kamila; Bartolic, Silvia – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2019
Computer-assisted instruction can change the way introductory statistics and quantitative methods courses are taught. Using a two-group pretest-posttest design, we conducted an experiment using an undergraduate social science student sample to investigate whether the introduction of statistical software to teaching quantitative methods would…

Chew, Chiou Sheng; Idris, Norisma; Loh, Er Fu; Wu, Wen-Chi Vivian; Chua, Yan Piaw; Bimba, Andrew Thomas – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2019
This paper focuses on the design and evaluation of a theory-based computer-assisted summary writing learning environment called Summary Writing-PAL (SW-PAL). The SW-PAL was developed based on four aspects: summarizing strategies, learning theories, prior knowledge, and cognitive load. A quasi-experiment that involved 58 undergraduates majoring in…

Lin, Xiao-Fan; Deng, Cailing; Hu, Qintai; Tsai, Chin-Chung – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2019
Close links between students' conceptions of and approaches to learning were established in the past research. However, only a few quantitative studies investigated this relationship particularly with regard to mobile learning (m-learning). The correlation between learners' conceptions and approaches to m-learning was analysed using a partial…

Magana, Alejandra J.; Serrano, Mayari I.; Rebello, N. Sanjay – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2019
Virtual learning environments can now be enriched not only with visual and auditory information, but also with tactile and kinesthetic feedback. However, the way to successfully integrate haptic feedback on a multimodal learning environment is still unclear. This study aims to provide guidelines on how visuohaptic simulations can be implemented…

Chen, Bodong; Huang, Tianhui – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2019
Asynchronous online discussions are broadly used to support social learning. This paper reports on an undergraduate class's online discussion activities over one semester. Applying social network analysis, this study revealed a participation gap among students reflected by their varied levels of network prestige. The low-prestige group initiated…

Fang, N.; Tajvidi, M. – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2018
This study focuses on the investigation of the effects of computer simulation and animation (CSA) on students' cognitive processes in an undergraduate engineering course. The revised Bloom's taxonomy, which consists of six categories in the cognitive process domain, was employed in this study. Five of the six categories were investigated,…

Firat, Mehmet; Kilinç, Hakan; Yüzer, Tevfik Volkan – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2018
According to researches, motivation that initiates and sustains behaviour is one of the most significant components of learning in any environment. Accordingly, level of intrinsic motivation triggers and sustains the interest of the open and distance education students when it comes to learning on their own in e-learning environments. Despite a…

Davis, K.; Sridharan, H.; Koepke, L.; Singh, S.; Boiko, R. – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2018
The current study investigated college students' experiences of a gamified informatics course. We surveyed 139 students aged 18-31 years (M = 20 years, SD = 1.5) enrolled in an undergraduate informatics course focused on social networking technologies. Surveys were conducted at 3 time points during the course (beginning, middle, and end). Overall,…

Buil, I.; Catalán, S.; Martínez, E. – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2018
Business simulation games are a motivational and engaging tool for teaching business management. However, relatively little is known about what factors contribute to their success. This study explores the role of flow experienced while using business simulation games. Specifically, this research investigates the influence of challenge, skills,…

Liu, Gi-Zen; Lu, Hui-Ching; Lin, Vivien; Hsu, Wei-Chen – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2018
With the increased use of digital materials, undergraduate writers in English as a foreign language (EFL) contexts have become more susceptible to plagiarism. In this study, the researchers designed a blended English writing course with an online writing tutorial system entitled "DWright." The study examined the effectiveness of the…

Maycock, K. W.; Lambert, J.; Bane, D. – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2018
This action research study follows a between-subject design strategy and attempts to identify whether a departure from a direct instructional teaching strategy towards a flipped learning pedagogy results in increases in student performance over time. In particular, the study considers the effects of integrating flipped learning pedagogic…

Gyllen, J.; Stahovich, T.; Mayer, R. – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2018
Time on task has been recognized as an important variable in academic learning, but self-report measures of study time are problematic. Therefore, this study employs an automated system for recording time spent reading a course textbook. College students in an introductory engineering course accessed their textbook online. The book contained pages…

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…

Jo, I.; Park, Y.; Lee, H. – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2017
An asynchronous online discussion (AOD) is one format of instructional methods that facilitate student-centered learning. In the wealth of AOD research, this study evaluated how students' behavior on AOD influences their academic outcomes. This case study compared the differential analytic methods including web log mining, social network analysis…
