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,…

Oh, Eunjung Grace; Huang, Wen-Hao David; Hedayati Mehdiabadi, Amir; Ju, Boreum – Journal of Computing in Higher Education, 2018
The purpose of this paper is to explore and compare learners' critical thinking and interaction during an asynchronous online discussion when peer- or instructor-facilitation was provided. Current literature on online discussion reveals a controversy between peer facilitation and instructor facilitation regarding their strengths and weaknesses.…

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…

Veletsianos, George – Journal of Computing in Higher Education, 2017
Researchers have proposed that social media provide complementary learning environments for Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) that might engender participation, engagement, and peer-support. Although suggestive, nearly all of the research in this area consists of case studies, making it challenging to determine whether or to what extent findings…

Rambe, Patient – Journal of Computing in Higher Education, 2017
The rhetoric on the potential of Web 2.0 technologies to democratize online engagement of students often overlooks the discomforting, differential participation and asymmetrical engagement that accompanies student adoption of emerging technologies. This paper, therefore, constitutes a critical reality check for student adoption of technology to…

Gallagher, Silvia Elena; Savage, Timothy – Journal of Computing in Higher Education, 2016
Massive Online Open Courses (MOOCs) can create large scale communities of learners who collaborate, interact and discuss learning materials and activities. MOOCs are often delivered multiple times with similar content to different cohorts of learners. However, research into the differences of learner communication, behavior and expectation between…

Bere, Aaron; Rambe, Patient – Journal of Computing in Higher Education, 2016
Research on technology adoption often profiles device usability (such as perceived usefulness) and user dispositions (such as perceived ease of use) as the prime determinants of effective technology adoption. Since any process of technology adoption cannot be conceived out of its situated contexts, this paper argues that any pre-occupation with…

Lafuente Martínez, Marc; Álvarez Valdivia, Ibis M.; Remesal Ortiz, Ana – Journal of Computing in Higher Education, 2015
This paper aims to explore the role of e-assessment in making the learning process more visible to the instructor, while revealing its impact on the adjustment of ensuing feedback. We carried out a qualitative analysis of two different cases at two different tertiary institutions. One case took place in a virtual mode, the other developed in…

Ertmer, Peggy A.; Koehler, Adrie A. – Journal of Computing in Higher Education, 2015
The facilitator plays a key role in guiding students' efforts during case discussions. However, few studies have compared differences in learning outcomes for students participating in facilitated versus non-facilitated discussions. In this research, we used "problem space coverage" as a learning measure to compare outcomes between…

Tracey, Monica W.; Kacin, Sara E. – Journal of Computing in Higher Education, 2014
The following design case illustrates the approach a group of advanced graduate online-design students, two design coaches, and an instructor used to design an online instructional intervention as a service-learning project for parents interested in improving their parenting skills with their pre-teens. This design case is distinctive in that it…

Heafner, Tina L.; Petty, Teresa M.; Hartshorne, Richard – Journal of Computing in Higher Education, 2012
The University of North Carolina at Charlotte's College of Education offers a 100% online teacher licensure program. One component of the licensure program is the Graduate Internship, which involves the observation of graduate interns' teaching. With many current and potential students located in more remote areas of the state, the remote…

Ertmer, Peggy A.; Sadaf, Ayesha; Ertmer, David J. – Journal of Computing in Higher Education, 2011
This study examined the relationships among question types and levels and students' subsequent responses/interactions in online discussion forums. Question prompts were classified both by type, as outlined by Andrews ("POD Q J Prof Organ Dev Net Higher Education" 2(34):129-163, 1980), and by levels of critical thinking, as outlined by Bloom…
