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…

Van Horne, Sam; Henze, Marisa; Schuh, Kathy L.; Colvin, Carolyn; Russell, Jae-Eun – Journal of Computing in Higher Education, 2017
E-textbooks are more prevalent in college courses, but much recent research still shows that students prefer paper textbooks and have difficulty regulating their learning with digital course materials. Still, college instructors--especially in lower-division STEM courses--often adopt digital course materials with e-textbooks that include a variety…

Dennis, Alan R.; Abaci, Serdar; Morrone, Anastasia S.; Plaskoff, Joshua; McNamara, Kelly O. – Journal of Computing in Higher Education, 2016
With additional features and increasing cost advantages, e-textbooks are becoming a viable alternative to paper textbooks. One important feature offered by enhanced e-textbooks (e-textbooks with interactive functionality) is the ability for instructors to annotate passages with additional insights. This paper describes a pilot study that examines…

Fischer, Lane; Hilton, John, III; Robinson, T. Jared; Wiley, David A. – Journal of Computing in Higher Education, 2015
In some educational settings, the cost of textbooks approaches or even exceeds the cost of tuition. Given limited resources, it is important to better understand the impacts of free open educational resources (OER) on student outcomes. Utilizing digital resources such as OER can substantially reduce costs for students. The purpose of this study…

Varela, Otmar E.; Cater, John James, III; Michel, Norbert – Journal of Computing in Higher Education, 2012
In this study we seek to better understand the outcomes of online education by observing the role of learners' personality traits. Under the premise that the behaviors that maximize learning are contingent on the delivery method, we compared learning outcomes of students participating in four sections of an undergraduate principles of management…
