  • Empowering academics to be adaptive with eLearning technologies: An
           exploratory case study

    • Authors: Helen Flavell, Courtenay Harris, Connie Price, Emma Logan, Sunila Peterson
      Abstract: This paper describes an exploratory case study investigating the capacity of a multidisciplinary approach to academic development, to empower adaptive responses to ongoing technological change impacting on teaching practice. A quasi-experimental design with an intervention group (n = 22) and a comparative control group (n = 7) was adopted. Pre and post online questionnaires were administered to participants in both groups to evaluate attitudes and experiences relating to technology use in teaching and learning. The questionnaires were adapted from the Technology Acceptance Model. Qualitative measurement of the intervention group’s experiences following the professional development was captured using semi-structured interviews, followed by two focus groups to confirm the interview findings. Results indicate that the professional development impacted positively on participants through significantly increased levels of confidence and perceived ease of use. Qualitative data indicated participants experienced cognitive, emotional, and/or practical changes during and/or following the professional development.

  • Social networking sites and learning in international relations: The
           impact of platforms

    • Authors: Josh Pallas, Joakim Eidenfalk, Susan Engel
      Abstract: This article reports on a pilot undergraduate subject that incorporated a range of technology-enhanced learning approaches including online lectures, an online site for in and out of class communications, and strong encouragement for students to blog and use Twitter. This paper evaluates student engagement through the social networking sites (SNS), focusing on the online communication and content platform. We examine whether changing from an educationally oriented SNS platform to Facebook impacted on student engagement and feedback. To achieve this, both empirical data and qualitative student feedback were used.

  • Systematic literature review on self-regulated learning in massive open
           online courses

    • Authors: Daeyeoul Lee, Sunnie Lee Watson, William R Watson
      Abstract: Despite arguments about the importance of self-regulated learning (SRL) in massive open online courses (MOOCs) (Terras & Ramsay, 2015), understanding of the topic is limited. This study offers a systematic review of empirical research on SRL in MOOCs. It revealed that the body of literature on SRL in MOOCs has grown from 2014 to 2016. The content analysis findings show that SRL was a factor positively influencing learning in MOOCs. SRL strategies were identified, including motivational regulation strategies, specifically self-efficacy, task value, and goal setting. Particular cognitive regulation strategies were not identified, and goal setting was found as a metacognitive regulation strategy. Regarding behavioural and contextual regulation strategies, help seeking, time management, and effort regulation were identified. In addition, several MOOC designs and SRL interventions that consider unique characteristics of MOOCs were proposed to promote SRL. Implications of these findings and future research are discussed.

  • Stop! Grammar time: University students’ perceptions of the automated
           feedback program Grammarly

    • Authors: Ruth ONeill, Alex Russell
      Abstract: Universities are increasingly looking towards online technology to assist their students. Grammarly advertises itself as the world’s most accurate online grammar checker, yet little research exists on its performance as a feedback tool in universities. This paper reports on a study investigating students’ perceptions of Grammarly when used in conjunction with advice from an academic learning advisor. Using a mixed methods sequential explanatory design, the study compared one group of students’ responses to the feedback they received from Grammarly (n = 54) with another group’s responses to the traditional non-automated grammar feedback they received from the Academic Learning Centre at CQUniversity (n = 42). Results show that students receiving feedback from Grammarly responded more positively to 9 of the 15 survey items and were significantly more satisfied with the grammar advice that they received compared with non-Grammarly students. No significant differences were registered between cohorts or delivery mode, which suggests that Grammarly can be used effectively by academic learning advisors to provide grammar support for both international and domestic students, online and on campus. It is recommended, however, that the program be used in conjunction with academic learning advisor input as the program is currently not accurate enough for independent use to be justified.

  • Older, online and first: Recommendations for retention and success

    • Authors: Cathy Stone, Sarah O'Shea
      Abstract: The university student population in Australia contains increasing numbers of older students returning to learning after a significant gap in their educational journey. Many are choosing to enrol online to combine their studies with other time-consuming responsibilities. This article examines the nature of this online student experience with a focus on those aged 25 and over who are the first in their families to embark on university studies. Drawing on interviews conducted with both staff and students operating in this virtual space, as well as other related research and literature, this article offers recommendations to higher education institutions and educators on ways to improve retention and ongoing participation of this cohort.

  • Create a fine blend: An examination of institutional transition to blended
           learning

    • Authors: Kemran Mestan
      Abstract: Higher education institutions across the globe are increasing the extent to which they teach in a blended mode. However, in the rush to transition to blended teaching, institutions often fail to systematically review their transition process. Via a case study of one institution’s transition to blended teaching, this paper aims to assist other institutions make similar transitions. Numerous recommendations for how institutions can advance their transition to blended learning are deduced. The investigation triangulates three data sets collected from: (1) methodical observation of the learning management system (LMS); (2) interviews with unit coordinators; and (3) a large-scale student survey. It was found that although both students and academics were receptive to blended learning, neither had a clear understanding of what it was. There is wide variability in the structure and quality of blended units and LMS sites. Lifting the standard of poorer quality blended units requires considerable investment to provide academics with time and resources. Students were on average satisfied with the online aspect of blended learning; they were particularly satisfied with procedural efficiencies, but less so with socially interactive aspects of learning. Overall, blended learning appears to enhance engagement, providing more avenues for students to engage with learning materials.

  • Saudi undergraduate students’ perceptions of the use of smartphone
           clicker apps on learning performance

    • Authors: Abdualziz Salamah Aljaloud, Nicolas Gromik, Paul Kwan, William Billingsley
      Abstract: This study aimed to investigate how the use of a smartphone clicker app by a group of 390 Saudi Arabian male undergraduate students would impact their learning performance while participating in a computer science class. The smartphone clicker app was used by the students during peer group discussions and to respond to teacher questions. A conceptual framework identified teacher-student and student-student interactions, collaborative learning, and student engagement as three primary practices that could improve student performance when a smartphone clicker app was used. The relationships between these factors were tested empirically by participant completion of a self-administered online survey. This study found the use of a smartphone clicker app promoted increased teacher-student and student-student interactivity, leading to active collaboration learning by students and improved learning performance. No positive relationship was found between the smartphone clicker app use and increased student engagement. These results demonstrated the role of the smartphone clicker app in enhancing the learning experience of the Saudi undergraduate students included in this study, but not the overall student engagement. Further research into how use of a smartphone clicker app in classroom settings might promote student engagement to improve the overall learning performance is needed.

  • User acceptance in a computer-supported collaborative learning (CSCL)
           environment with social network awareness (SNA) support

    • Authors: Jian-Wei Lin, Hao-Chiang Koong Lin
      Abstract: Although many e-learning studies have applied the unified theory of acceptance and usage of technology (UTAUT) to investigate user acceptance, their findings have been inconsistent. One of reasons is that the user acceptance model of an e-learning system can be determined by the new information technologies (or mechanisms) the e-learning system utilises. Computer-supported collaborative learning (CSCL) with social network awareness (SNA) mechanisms has been widely adopted because it can enhance online collaborative learning effectiveness. Since new SNA mechanisms are expected to have a huge impact on user acceptance in CSCL environments, this study extends UTAUT to investigate user acceptance of an SNA CSCL environment. This study empirically evaluated the extended model by surveying 186 undergraduates, who had completed a 5-week electric commerce course in an SNA CSCL environment. The findings indicated that the SNA mechanism substantially strengthened the effect of social influence on behavioural intention to use the SNA CSCL system. Compared with other CSCL studies, the predictive power of social influence in this study was higher, while that of other determinants (i.e., performance expectancy and effort expectancy) in this study were lower. The extended model demonstrated higher explanatory power compared to models used in other CSCL studies.

  • Developing the rotational synchronous teaching (RST) model: Examination of
           the connected classroom climate

    • Authors: Yanhong Lee, Harrison Hao Yang, Jason MacLeod, Jinjun Dai
      Abstract: The multiple synchronous smart classroom learning environment (MSSC) is an alternative educational context that describes several active learning classrooms, connected through synchronous broadcasting technology. MSSC provides conceptually new capabilities to maximise both student learning and instructor efficiency. However, MSSC lacks an empirically validated instructional model, which limits effectiveness, particularly in relation to student interaction. Therefore, this study designed, developed, and implemented the rotational synchronous teaching (RST) model: a practical instructional approach for simultaneously teaching large student audiences, while maintaining smaller interactive classroom atmospheres. The RST model was tested in a mixed method research design that relied on survey (n = 305) and interview (n = 8) data of college students collected at the conclusion of the spring semester 2017. The effects of this RST model on student connected classroom climate obtained results matching previous research in traditional face-to-face classroom contexts. These preliminary findings indicate that the MSSC can effectively cultivate social interaction among students in a large instructional context with an approapriate instructional approach. The results of this study also suggest the need to expand future research toward comparative methodologies that examine additional variables, including academic achievement.

  • Mobile learning in pre-service teacher education: Examining the use of
           professional learning networks

    • Authors: Matthew Kearney, Damian Maher
      Abstract: Interest in how to use mobile devices to support teaching and learning has increased as technologies have become more sophisticated and ubiquitous. A recent focus in teacher education is the use of mobile devices to support teachers’ professional learning networks (PLNs). This study investigates how pre-service teachers (PSTs) use mobile technologies to support different aspects of their PLN activities. The study uses a qualitative methodology, where data from focus group discussions, artefact collection, and participant journals kept by 11 final year PSTs provided nuanced insights into their mobile learning practices. A validated mobile pedagogical framework (Kearney, Schuck, Burden, & Aubusson, 2012) is used to analyse the data. Findings uncover a deeper understanding of exemplary mobile learning approaches in initial teacher education and have implications for effective preparation of PSTs for career-long professional learning.

  • The effects of international email and Skype interactions on
           computer-mediated communication perceptions and attitudes and
           intercultural competence in Taiwanese students

    • Authors: Shih-Yin Stella Hsu, Robert E. Beasley
      Abstract: Learners in an English as a foreign language (EFL) context seldom have the opportunity to interact with people from other cultures and experience intercultural communication in English to foster their intercultural competence (IC), whether inside or outside of the classroom. In an effort to create a brand new opportunity to boost target language interactions, this study utilised two computer-mediated communication (CMC) tools, namely email and Skype, to involve Taiwanese EFL university students in an intercultural project to discuss interesting and cultural topics with university students from the USA. Data were collected from Taiwanese students’ reflective journals, a post-project questionnaire, and interviews. The study’s results indicate that despite encountering numerous problems initially, Taiwanese students eventually have strong positive perceptions and attitudes toward intercultural CMC learning experiences, which can facilitate efficient online discussions with native speakers of the target language and can promote IC. Thus, endeavours to implement such expedient, innovative, and beneficial methods in foreign language courses are encouraged.

  • User acceptance model of computer-based assessment: moderating effect and
           intention-behavior effect

    • Authors: Jian-Wei Lin, Yung-Cheng Lai
      Abstract: Computer-based assessment (CBA) is an important area of e-learning research. Most studies of CBA technology add new constructs to existing user acceptance models and rarely consider the moderating effects and intention-behavior effects. Notably, within an e-learning environment, the self-regulation (SR) levels (i.e. high or low) substantially influence individual learning behavior and performance while intention-behavior effects are not guaranteed. This study investigates the moderating effects of SR levels on the relationships between the factors (including the intention-behavior relationship) of CBA acceptance model, which was based on the Unified Theory of Acceptance and Use of Technology (UTAUT) model. The main findings are that, firstly, both the perceived performance expectancy and social influence significantly affect CBA behavioral intention in all students regardless of their SR level. Secondly, compared to effort expectancy in high-SR students, effort expectancy in low-SR students has a significantly larger effect on CBA behavioral intention. Finally, the behavioral intention significantly predicts CBA use behavior for the high-SR students but not for the low-SR students.
