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…

Ozdemir, Ozgur; Hendricks, Christina – Journal of Computing in Higher Education, 2017
Open textbooks are similar to traditional textbooks except that they are free of cost and licensed to allow revision and reuse. Adopting open textbooks for higher education courses is a way to address the growing costs of traditional textbooks that lead some students to be unable to access them, and to allow instructors to tailor the books to…

Pérez-Sanagustín, Mar; Hilliger, Isabel; Alario-Hoyos, Carlos; Kloos, Carlos Delgado; Rayyan, Saif – Journal of Computing in Higher Education, 2017
Since Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) started to become part of the scene of Higher Education (HE), many institutions have joined the race of MOOC creation. However, producing MOOCs has shown to be a cumbersome and expensive activity for HE institutions. For this reason, many universities have started to explore and experiment with hybrid…

McGloin, Rory; McGillicuddy, Kara T.; Christensen, John L. – Journal of Computing in Higher Education, 2017
The aim of this study was to investigate whether students with differing goal achievement orientations were more likely to engage in on-task or off-task mobile device usage, as well as whether particular devices (specifically, laptops and smartphones) have a positive or negative relationship with specific task usage. The results of this study…

Kimmons, Royce – Journal of Computing in Higher Education, 2017
This study seeks to evaluate the basic Priority 1 web accessibility of all college and university websites in the US (n = 3141). Utilizing web scraping and automated content analysis, the study establishes that even in the case of high-priority, simple-to-address accessibility requirements, colleges and universities generally fail to make their…

Mora, Alberto; Riera, Daniel; González, Carina; Arnedo-Moreno, Joan – Journal of Computing in Higher Education, 2017
Learner's motivation difficulties are recognized as a problem in diverse educational scenarios, reaching up to university degrees. Among other techniques that are often applied by instructors to counteract this issue, those related to the use of gaming elements seem to very promising. In this context, considering the use of game-like properties in…

Van Horne, Sam; Murniati, Cecilia Titiek – Journal of Computing in Higher Education, 2016
Although post-secondary educational institutions are incorporating more active learning classrooms (ALCs) that support collaborative learning, researchers have less often examined the cultural obstacles to adoption of those environments. In this qualitative research study, we adopted the conceptual framework of activity theory to examine the…

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…

Bernard, Robert M.; Borokhovski, Eugene; Schmid, Richard F.; Tamim, Rana M. – Journal of Computing in Higher Education, 2014
This article contains a second-order meta-analysis and an exploration of bias in the technology integration literature in higher education. Thirteen meta-analyses, dated from 2000 to 2014 were selected to be included based on the questions asked and the presence of adequate statistical information to conduct a quantitative synthesis. The weighted…
