Fostering Learners' Metacognitive Skills of Keyword Reformulation in Image Seeking by Location-Based Hierarchical Navigation
Educational Technology Research and Development Vol. 61, No. 2 (April 2013) pp. 233–254
It is critical that students learn how to retrieve useful information in hypermedia environments, a task that is often especially difficult when it comes to image retrieval, as little text feedback is given that allows them to reformulate keywords...
Cooperative Weblog Learning in Higher Education: Its Facilitating Effects on Social Interaction, Time Lag, and Cognitive Load
Educational Technology & Society Vol. 14, No. 1 (2011) pp. 95–106
This paper examines the effects of using weblog technologies to support cooperative learning in higher education. The study focused on the effects of features embedded in weblogs on social interactions, time lags, and cognitive loads. A quasi...
An Evaluation of Pedagogical Tutorial Tactics for a Natural Language Tutoring System: A Reinforcement Learning Approach
International Journal of Artificial Intelligence in Education Vol. 21, No. 1 (2011) pp. 83–113
Pedagogical strategies are policies for a tutor to decide the next action when there are multiple actions available. When the content is controlled to be the same across experimental conditions, there has been little evidence that tutorial decisions ...
Effects of User and System Characteristics on Perceived Usefulness and Perceived Ease of Use of the Web-Based Classroom Response System
