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,…

Lowell, Victoria L.; Ashby, Iryna V. – Journal of Computing in Higher Education, 2018
Instructional designers (IDs) frequently collaborate with subject matter experts, peer IDs, and other professionals (Intentional Futures 2016). Such collaboration often requires an exchange of feedback on design plans and work completed with and for others, as well as self-assessment of one's own skills and work during the design process…

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…

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…

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…

Castaño-Muñoz, Jonatan; Kreijns, Karel; Kalz, Marco; Punie, Yves – Journal of Computing in Higher Education, 2017
While MOOCs are recognized nowadays as a potential format for professional development and lifelong learning, little research has been conducted on the factors that influence MOOC participation of professionals and unemployed in MOOCs. Based on a framework developed earlier, we conducted a study, which focused on the influence of background…
