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…

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,…

Leach, Matthew; Hadi, Syed Munib – Journal of Computing in Higher Education, 2017
Much is made of the diversity for MOOCs learners--with their varied motivations and interests; yet MOOCs are often run and judged on the assumption that learners would progress through the course in its entirety, to completion. This paper presents an analysis of three recently delivered MOOCs that were designed to support a broader set of learner…

Jansen, Renée S.; van Leeuwen, Anouschka; Janssen, Jeroen; Kester, Liesbeth; Kalz, Marco – Journal of Computing in Higher Education, 2017
The number of students engaged in Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) is increasing rapidly. Due to the autonomy of students in this type of education, students in MOOCs are required to regulate their learning to a greater extent than students in traditional, face-to-face education. However, there is no questionnaire available suited for this…

Khalil, Mohammad; Ebner, Martin – Journal of Computing in Higher Education, 2017
Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) are remote courses that excel in their students' heterogeneity and quantity. Due to the peculiarity of being massiveness, the large datasets generated by MOOC platforms require advanced tools and techniques to reveal hidden patterns for purposes of enhancing learning and educational behaviors. This publication…

Czerniewicz, Laura; Deacon, Andrew; Glover, Michael; Walji, Sukaina – Journal of Computing in Higher Education, 2017
MOOCs have been seen as holding promise for advancing Open Education. While the pedagogical design of the first MOOCs grew out of the Open Education Movement, the current trend has MOOCs exhibiting fewer of the original openness goals than anticipated. The aim of this study is to examine the practices and attitudes of MOOC educators at an African…
