Abstract This article presents research works in which a cultural adaptation method and a knowledge-based advisor to help instructional designers in considering cultural variables during the instructional design process have been developed. To do so, a conceptual model of Culture was elaborated, cultural variables were identified and knowledge regarding these variables was modeled via an ontology that served to create the “Cultural Diversity” knowledge base integrating knowledge regarding five c...

Abstract This study examines the effects of different simulation interface designs on students' conceptual understanding of optical imaging and mental model development, and clarifies these design implications on students' behavioral performance and average residence time. We developed simulations of two different interfaces—gesture- and mouse-based simulations—to collect and compare data from two respective student groups. We utilized a quasi-experimental design, and selected and assigned 64 si...

Abstract In this paper, the authors show that augmented reality technology has a positive impact on learning-related outcomes of middle-school Mexican students. However, the impact varies depending on whether students were enrolled in public or private schools. The authors designed an augmented reality application for students to practice the basic principles of geometry, and a similar application which encompasses identical learning objectives and content deployed in a Web-based learning enviro...

Abstract For learners to be successful in an information problem solving task, they should be able to effectively regulate their own behaviour. Despite views that such behaviour may come naturally to an individual, research generally shows that some learners do experience problems with information problem solving that may stem from such things as limited prior knowledge. As a means of addressing this challenge, the authors explored how the provision of both a concept map and search tool could ov...

Abstract Students turn to the Internet for information but often struggle to evaluate the trustworthiness of what they find. Teachers should help students develop effective evaluation strategies in order to ensure that students have access to reliable information on which to base decisions. This study reports on the results of an attempt to teach students to reason about online information. Students were taught strategies for evaluating digital content that were based on the practices of profess...

Abstract This study defines MOOC success as the extent of student satisfaction with the course. Having more satisfied MOOC students can extend the reach of an institution to more people, build the brand name of the institution, and even help the institution use MOOCs as a source of revenue. Traditionally, student completion rate is frequently used to define MOOC success, which however, is often inaccurate because many students have no intention of finishing a MOOC. Informed by Moore's theory of ...

Abstract The theoretical underpinnings of and learning processes activated by student-generated feedback corresponding to potential answers given to student-generated questions (SGQ) were explicated, and its learning effects were examined. Four classes of seventh-graders (n = 109) participated in a non-equivalent pretest-posttest quasi-experimental research study that lasted nine weeks. The results from the analysis of covariance (ANCOVA) and content analysis of student-generated feedback suppor...

Abstract In low- and middle-income countries (LMICs), e-learning for medical education may alleviate the burden of severe health worker shortages and deliver affordable access to high quality medical education. However, diverse challenges in infrastructure and adoption are encountered when implementing e-learning within medical education in particular. Understanding what constitutes successful e-learning is an important first step for determining its effectiveness. The objective of this study wa...
Abstract In recent years, hopes that Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) would make access to education fairer faded in the light of research showing MOOCs favoured the already educated and relatively advantaged. This paper presents the results of a systematic review of literature from 2014 to 2018. The aim was to investigate the extent that MOOCs and other free open education programs provide equitable forms of online education to address global widening participation agendas. The literature fe...
