Abstract Remote workers are particularly prone to mental health problems (Bowers et al., 2018). Unfortunately, it is often difficult for them to access the quality psychological help that they need. As a result, psychological treatment is increasingly being delivered to remote workers via telehealth (videoconferencing and telephone calls). However, the perceived remoteness of the therapist during such treatments can greatly hinder progress. This project examined the potential of virtual reality ...
Abstract Although promoting alternative offline activities after the consumption of entertaining media is advisable for supporting preschoolers’ healthy media usage habits, a smooth behavioral transition from screen time to screen-free time is challenging for both children and parents. In this study, we examine two methods for supporting such behavioral transition: the use of augmented reality(AR) technology and encouraging preschoolers to engage in offline leisure activities as an alternative. ...
Abstract Existing literature points to scaffolded training as an effective yet resource-intensive approach to help newcomers learn and stay motivated. Experts need to select relevant learning materials and continuously assess learners' progress. Peer production communities such as Wikipedia and Open Source Software Development projects face the additional problem of turning volunteers into productive participants as soon as possible. To address these challenges, we designed and tested a training...
Abstract Mobile social networking sites (SNS) are frequently theorized to lead to perceived information overload, which may affect the well-being of individuals in negative ways. However, the available body of research is mainly based on cross-sectional data. Based on the limited capacity model of motivated mediated message processing (Lang, 2002), we tested the over-time relationships between mobile SNS use, information overload, depressive symptoms, and well-being in a two-wave panel study. Us...
Abstract The split-attention effect seems a robust finding in the literature and shows that complex learning materials consisting of text and pictures lead to better learning when they are spatially integrated instead of spatially separated. In the current study, two experiments were conducted to investigate the effects of distance and signaling on the split-attention effect. In Experiment 1, a 2 × 2 design was used in which spatial distance (large vs. small) and signaling (signaling vs. no sign...
Abstract Internet Gaming Disorder (IGD) suggests a sustained, problematic pattern of video gaming contributing to both physical and psychological harms. Applications of self-determination theory have revealed two correlates of IGD: (1) daily frustration of basic needs (i.e., competence, autonomy, and relatedness), and (2) stronger extrinsic gaming motivations. Theory and recent research suggests that poorer self-control (i.e., deficits in the ability to regulate emotions, behaviors, and impulses...
Abstract Using online learning communities (OLCs) from the Internet as informal learning environments raises the question how likely these communities will integrate learners as new members, i.e., how integrative these OLCs will be. Such prediction is the purpose of the current study. To achieve this, an identification method of the central, intermediate, and peripheral OLC layers is proposed. Based on the CSCL approaches of voices interanimation and polyphony, an advanced natural language proce...
Abstract The use of second screening to express emotions and opinions while watching television has proliferated among media consumers. However, the relationships proposed so far between second screening and political outcomes are relatively limited in scope and simple. This study contributes to the literature in a two ways. 1) We identify how second screening influences users' online participation through two mediators -- elaboration on social media and social media political efficacy. As such,...
Abstract Privacy amid rapid digitalization of medical records is a critical ingredient to the success of electronic-based health service. This paper explores the potential roles of privacy attitudes concerning medical data, based on a large set of a national sample data (n = 2638) from the U.S. Health Information National Trend Survey. We examine the ways in which privacy concern and confidence are (a) mediated through one's interest in sharing information with health professionals and (b) moder...
Abstract Personal interviews are widely used to collect open-ended data in an array of settings, many of which require solicitation of data that may be regarded as sensitive or threatening by interviewees. The high costs of employing human interviewers can be mitigated by utilizing computer-generated “human-like” interviewers, at least in scripted interview conditions. However, the effects of replacing humans with human-like interviewers on interviewees’ level of actual disclosure has not been w...
