Jong, Morris Siu-Yung – Journal of Computing in Higher Education, 2019
Flipped Classroom (FC) is a blended learning approach being promoted in higher education in recent years. It flips the conventional pedagogic arrangement so that students use the out-of-class time to conduct lower-order learning and the in-class time to conduct higher-order learning. Nevertheless, unlike the adoption phenomena in other academic…

Hui, Yan Keung; Li, Chen; Qian, Sheng; Kwok, Lam For – Journal of Computing in Higher Education, 2019
In educational psychology, the theories of interest and self-determination have been well studied to find the relationships between learning attitudes and learning outcomes. However, the instructional design and the learning behaviors are the two missing elements which have not been fully investigated in the learning process. Therefore, we…

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,…

Simonova, Ivana – Journal of Computing in Higher Education, 2019
Blended design of teaching/learning foreign languages, in this case English grammar, has become widely spread within the higher education. The main objective of the article is to discover whether blended approach enhances the process of acquiring new knowledge in the field. The research was conducted at two institutions: faculty of informatics and…

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…

Alzahrani, Ahmed Ibrahim; Al-Samarraie, Hosam; Eldenfria, Atef; Alalwan, Nasser – Journal of Computing in Higher Education, 2018
The understanding of the design of mobile phones is somewhat different from other devices and products. This is properly due to the limited design capacity of mobile phones which need to be maintained within a small screen. One aspect for consideration is the relationship between certain design elements and users' usage behavior and perception of…

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…

Pape, Stephen J.; Prosser, Sherri K. – Journal of Computing in Higher Education, 2018
Algebra has been called the gatekeeper to higher level mathematics, college success, and higher wages, but many community college students struggle to pass college-level mathematics courses. The National Educational Technology Plan for higher education (U.S. Department of Education 2017b) calls for the integration of technology, such as real-time…

Schumacher, Clara; Ifenthaler, Dirk – Journal of Computing in Higher Education, 2018
Depending on their motivational dispositions, students choose different learning strategies and vary in their persistence in reaching learning outcomes. As learning is more and more facilitated through technology, analytics approaches allow learning processes and environments to be analyzed and optimized. However, research on motivation and…

Bodily, Robert; Ikahihifo, Tarah K.; Mackley, Benjamin; Graham, Charles R. – Journal of Computing in Higher Education, 2018
We have designed, developed, and implemented a student-facing learning analytics dashboard in order to support students as they learn in online environments. There are two separate dashboards in our system: a content recommender dashboard and a skills recommender dashboard. The content recommender helps students identify gaps in their content…

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…

Matthews, Michael T.; Yanchar, Stephen C. – Journal of Computing in Higher Education, 2018
This study employed a hermeneutic investigative approach to determine instructional designers' underlying views of learner responsibility for their own learning, and how those views informed design practice. Prior research has examined how instructional designers spend their time, make decisions, use theory, and solve problems, but have not…
