Lin, Shu-Yuan; Xie, Ying – Journal of Computing in Higher Education, 2019
Student-generated tagclouds provided an intuitive overview of a group of learners' collective knowledge. Although such tagclouds may have the potential to be used as effective learning tools, it has not been clear how students use this tool for knowledge construction. In this paper, we report a two-stage study that investigated college students'…

Vázquez-Cano, Esteban; González, Ana Isabel Holgueras; Sáez-López, José Manuel – Journal of Computing in Higher Education, 2019
This article presents an analysis of the orthographic errors found in university students' asynchronous digital writing. A university and a society belonging to the twenty-first century require students and professionals who can use their language correctly in any context, device and mode of communication. The research was based on a sample of…

Tsai, Hung-Hsu; Chang, Chih-Tsan; Hou, Xin-Yu; Yong, You-Ming; Chiou, Kuo-Ching; Yu, Pao-Ta – Journal of Computing in Higher Education, 2019
The paper proposes an interactive student response portfolio (ISREP) system with iBeacon and web-socket technology, which supports flipped-classroom learning activities in traditional classrooms. The design of the ISREP system aims at promote interactions in classroom learning (CL). It offers APPs and web-interface functions for students and…

Xie, Haoran; Zou, Di; Zhang, Ruofei; Wang, Minhong; Kwan, Reggie – Journal of Computing in Higher Education, 2019
It is widely acknowledged that the acquisition of vocabulary is the foundation of learning English. With the rapid development of information technologies in recent years, e-learning systems have been widely adopted for English as a Second Language (ESL) Learning. However, a limitation of conventional word learning systems is that the prior…

Hui, Yan Keung; Li, Chen; Qian, Sheng; Kwok, Lam For – Journal of Computing in Higher Education, 2019
In educational psychology, the theories of interest and self-determination have been well studied to find the relationships between learning attitudes and learning outcomes. However, the instructional design and the learning behaviors are the two missing elements which have not been fully investigated in the learning process. Therefore, we…

MacLeod, Jason; Yang, Harrison Hao; Shi, Yinghui – Journal of Computing in Higher Education, 2019
Student-to-student connectedness is promoted by active, student-centered learning processes. It is a socio-psychological result of interpersonal communication and behavior in the classroom, which emulates belonging, cohesiveness, and supportiveness among peers. Currently, two survey instruments exist--Dwyer et al.'s (Commun Res Rep 21(3):264-272,…

Doleck, Tenzin; Bazelais, Paul; Lemay, David John – Journal of Computing in Higher Education, 2018
It is widely recognized and accepted that behavioral intention is the key direct determinant of technology use and the majority of research continues to promote this practice. Yet the influence of behavioral intention (i.e., an individual's conscious plan to use a technology) has been called into question more recently, as behavioral intention…

García Botero, Gustavo; Questier, Frederik; Cincinnato, Sebastiano; He, Tao; Zhu, Chang – Journal of Computing in Higher Education, 2018
Research on mobile learning indicates that students perceive mobile devices mainly as communication and entertainment tools. Therefore, a key factor in successful mobile learning implementation is the initial measurement of students' acceptance of those devices into their learning. Countless language applications available suggest that mobile…

Wood, Eileen; Mirza, Amna; Shaw, Lindsay – Journal of Computing in Higher Education, 2018
Media multitasking is a common artifact of the increasing presence of technologies in classrooms. However, research indicates learning decrements when students engage in inappropriate or "off-task" media multitasking during class time. This is a concern as many innovative teaching practices call for the use of technologies. The present…

Schuh, Kathy L.; Van Horne, Sam; Russell, Jae-eun – Journal of Computing in Higher Education, 2018
In this paper, we discuss the activity systems of students and instructors who used an interactive e-textbook in their instructional activities. Data included instructor interviews and student journals about e-textbook use in eight university courses. Exploration of the data through a cultural-historical activity theory lens indicated that…

Schwarzenberg, Pablo; Navon, Jaime; Nussbaum, Miguel; Pérez-Sanagustín, Mar; Caballero, Daniela – Journal of Computing in Higher Education, 2018
The flipped classroom has shown a positive effect on academic performance and student satisfaction. However, there are relatively few studies that help us understand when or why this method has a positive effect on students, so as to aid the design of a flipped class. In this study, an instrument for assessing the student learning experience in…

Eriksson, Thommy; Adawi, Tom; Stöhr, Christian – Journal of Computing in Higher Education, 2017
Why do over 90% of the learners in Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) never finish the course? There is a need for further studies focusing on the learners' experiences of participating in MOOCs and factors that influence the decision to complete or drop out of the course. To deepen our understanding of why learners complete or drop out of MOOCs,…
