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…

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…

McGee, Patricia; Windes, Deborah; Torres, Maria – Journal of Computing in Higher Education, 2017
While online courses are becoming a mainstay of college course offerings administrators, staff, instructors and students have different perceptions about how online courses should work. While faculty members are expert in their discipline and institutions provide support for acquiring content expertise, how instructors develop skills in online…

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…

Shang, Hui-Fang – Journal of Computing in Higher Education, 2017
In the English as a foreign language (EFL) writing context, most of the research studies on the feedback process are conducted in a face-to-face context and few research studies have been conducted to investigate what actually happens in online feedback conditions. Thus, this study aimed to compare 44 EFL university students' experience of…

Hsia, Jung-Wen – Journal of Computing in Higher Education, 2016
Since mobile devices have become cheaper, easily accessible, powerful, and popular and the cost of wireless access has declined gradually, mobile learning (m-learning) has begun to spread rapidly. To further improve the effectiveness and efficiency of m-learning for university students, it is critical to understand whether they use m-learning.…

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…

Gay, Glenda H. – Journal of Computing in Higher Education, 2016
Online instructors in higher education play a key role in the success or failure of electronic learning systems (ELSs). Their expertise in and use of technology tools in ELSs influence the quality of information presented, their system use and satisfaction during course delivery. This study adapted Holsapple and Lee-Post's ("Decis Sci J Innov…

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…
