Kauffman, Heather – Research in Learning Technology, 2015
Students perceive online courses differently than traditional courses. Negative perceptions can lead to unfavourable learning outcomes including decreased motivation and persistence. Throughout this review, a broad range of factors that affect performance and satisfaction within the online learning environment for adult learners will be examined…

Kidron, Adi; Kali, Yael – Research in Learning Technology, 2015
The purpose of this work is to contribute to the body of knowledge on processes by which students develop interdisciplinary understanding of contents, as well as to suggest technology-enhanced means for supporting them in these processes in the context of higher education. In doing so, we suggest a rethinking of three traditional practices that…

Glover, Ian; Parkin, Helen J.; Hepplestone, Stuart; Irwin, Brian; Rodger, Helen – Research in Learning Technology, 2015
This paper explores the potential of technology to enhance the assessment and feedback process for both staff and students. The "Making Connections" project aimed to better understand the connections that students make between the feedback that they receive and future assignments, and explored whether technology can help them in this…

Shively, Chris T.; Yerrick, Randy – Research in Learning Technology, 2014
Inquiry has been the framework for guiding reform-based science instruction. All too often, the role of technology is treated tacitly without contributions to this framework. This case study examines a collection of pre-service teachers enrolling in two educational technology courses and the role these experiences play in promoting inquiry…

Buchanan, Tom; Joban, Sanjay; Porter, Alan – Research in Learning Technology, 2014
Two studies tested the hypothesis that use of learning technologies among undergraduate psychology students was associated with higher Internet self-efficacy (ISE). In Study 1, the ISE scores of 86 students were found not to be associated with either attitudes towards, or measured use of, blogs and wikis as part of an IT skills course. ISE was…

Bennett, Liz – Research in Learning Technology, 2014
This paper explores how Sharpe and Beetham's Digital Literacies Framework which was derived to model students' digital literacies, can be applied to lecturers' digital literacy practices. Data from a small-scale phenomenological study of higher education lecturers who used Web 2.0 in their teaching and learning practices are used to…

Atenas, Javiera; Havemann, Leo – Research in Learning Technology, 2014
Open educational resources (OER) are teaching and learning materials which are freely available and openly licensed. Repositories of OER (ROER) are platforms that host and facilitate access to these resources. ROER should not just be designed to store this content--in keeping with the aims of the OER movement, they should support educators in…

Ahn, June; Pellicone, Anthony; Butler, Brian S. – Research in Learning Technology, 2014
Badges have garnered great interest among scholars of digital media and learning. In addition, widespread initiatives such as Mozilla's Open Badge Framework expand the potential of badging into the realm of open education. In this paper, we explicate the concept of open badges. We highlight some of the ways that researchers have examined…

Kuikka, Matti; Kitola, Markus; Laakso, Mikko-Jussi – Research in Learning Technology, 2014
Time pressures often necessitate the use of more efficient exam tools, such as electronic exams (e-exams), instead of traditional paper exams. However, teachers may face challenges when introducing e-exams in a higher education context. This paper describes what kinds of challenges teachers may face when introducing e-exams, based on experiences…

Reed, Peter – Research in Learning Technology, 2014
Further to earlier work carried out by the student union (SU) along with strategic discussions regarding technology-enhanced learning (TEL), this research aimed to identify the attitudes and experience of teaching staff in relation to specific uses of technology in learning and teaching. Data obtained through an online questionnaire (n = 100)…

Pedro, Luís; Santos, Carlos; Almeida, Sara Filipa; Ramos, Fernando; Moreira, António; Almeida, Margarida; Antunes, Maria João – Research in Learning Technology, 2014
This paper aims to assess the relevance and usefulness of the SAPO Campus recommender system, through the analysis of students' and teachers' opinions. Recommender systems, assuming a "technology-driven" approach, have been designed with the primary goal of predicting user interests based on the implicit analysis of their actions and…

Orlando, Joanne – Research in Learning Technology, 2014
While digital technology has become a significant resource for contemporary schooling, we still have little understanding of how these resources shape teachers' scholarly practices and what support is needed to improve and move forward. This paper reports on a 5-year qualitative, longitudinal study on the scholarly practices of a small number of…

Kear, Karen; Chetwynd, Frances; Jefferis, Helen – Research in Learning Technology, 2014
Online communication is increasingly used in education, but it is not without problems. One significant difficulty is a lack of social presence. Social presence relates to the need for users of technology-based communication to perceive each other as real people. Low social presence can be a particular issue in text-based, asynchronous systems…

Stafford, Tom; Elgueta, Herman; Cameron, Harriet – Research in Learning Technology, 2014
We introduced voluntary wiki-based exercises to a long-running cognitive psychology course, part of the core curriculum for an undergraduate degree in psychology. Over 2 yearly cohorts, students who used the wiki more also scored higher on the final written exam. Using regression analysis, it is possible to account for students' tendency to score…

Scott, Karen M. – Research in Learning Technology, 2014
As universities invest in the development of e-learning resources, e-learning sustainability has come under consideration. This has largely focused on the challenges and facilitators of organisational and technological sustainability and scalability, and professional development. Little research has examined the experience of a teacher dealing…
