    English-speaking students in courses on cross-cultural communication often comment on how little actual contact they have had with people from other cultures. Similarly, students in English for Academic Purposes for nonnative speakers courses relate how hard it is to connect with native English speakers. De-spite obvious mutual benefit, there is seldom a close relationship between instructors of r... View full abstract»

    Many organizations are using Distance Learning (DL) technology to expedite training. The military in particular is implementing DL because technology is transforming warfighting which means training loads are increasing. The demographics of the military are changing, with the Digital (D) Generation being the majority of new recruits. DL has been successful with the D Generation because they are ve...

    In this paper, we describe wireless grids, an emerging technology that enables ad hoc sharing of resources (such as screen, services and microphone) on edge devices (such as mobile Internet devices, laptops and mobile phones). As wireless devices have become common, and "smart," wireless grids have become practical. To highlight the capabilities of wireless grids to support collaborative learning,... View full abstract»

    Publication Year: 2011, Page(s):1 - 10
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (352 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    The paper proposes a conceptual framework, informed by activity theory, for designing technological support for meaning making in museum learning. The model describes a complex interaction between two activity contexts, the one associated with learners' own interests, goals and expectations, and the one associated with the design, functionality, and history of a museum artifact. The model is inten... View full abstract»

    While there have been many studies on instructional and on-task side of computer supported collaborative learning (CSCL), social and non-task side of the CSCL has received less attention. This paper observes and studies the pattern of non-task social messaging over a period of time in online Seminar rooms -designed for learning activities- as well as Coffee shops- designed for informal conversatio...

    There is evidence that different learning styles require diverse modes of communication. Based on 377 completed standardized questionnaires this study contributes to this field of research. To test the relation between learning aids and learning styles double coded data is analyzed by applying a multiple correspondence analysis. Further, impacts of extrinsic motivation, self-efficacy, subject-valu... View full abstract»

    The use of Web 2.0 technologies is increasingly common in many aspects of life: social, work, and study. The study reported here looks into how one type of Web 2.0 tool, the wiki, was being used to support groups of IT students involved in a collaborative authentic-task in their undergraduate studies to develop a software solution required by their "clients". The study indicates the existence of a... View full abstract»

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (820 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    The "collage effect" occurs when participants in a collaborative learning environment post non-collaborative contributions to a shared workspace, as opposed to contributions that are co- constructive. The resulting artifacts become a collage of individual contributions that do not fully engage the partici-pants in the collaborative learning process. Most online, asynchronous collaborative tools on... View full abstract»

    Satisfaction is a key indicator of system success, and so has been the subject of much IS research. The nostalgia effect, whereby individuals feel satisfied or dissatisfied when thinking about past goal attainment or failure, has been observed to influence analysts' decisions with respect to ongoing systems development. The Yield Shift Theory (YST) of Satisfaction offers an explanation for the nos... View full abstract»

    This study was conducted to better understand how teams conceptualize risk before it can be quantified, and the processes by which a team forms a shared mental model of this pre-quantitative risk. Using an extreme case, this study analyzes seven months of team meeting transcripts, covering the entire lifetime of the team. Through an analysis of team discussions, a rich and varied structural model ... View full abstract»

    Designing collaboration support is a complex social technical task. One of the key production factors in collaboration is cognitive effort. Understanding the cognitive load involved in collaborative tasks is therefore important to support the design of collaboration support. In this paper we derive a framework of cognitive activities involved in brainstorming, a very common and well-studied collab... View full abstract»

    Prior research in IS offshoring has highlighted issues in software development projects arising from differences in culture, from status differences and resource inequalities, as well as from asset-related characteristics. Based on Practice Theory and Transaction Cost Economics, we integrate these three perspectives into a single research model explaining the relation between the outcome of offsho...

    The success of an IT outsourcing project depends crucially on the close collaboration between both the outsourcing organization and the service provider. In this paper, we present a model to study the effort contribution from the two parties during the IT outsourcing process. The model incorporates two important and commonly observed features: 1) the true quality of the delivered project is unobse... View full abstract»
