    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (131 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    Building on prior research which distinguishes the distance environment from the traditional environment, this study adds the dimension of course type to the research. The same questionnaire surveyed students across multiple types of courses (communications versus programming) and multiple formats (on-campus versus online). The findings reveal some differences identifiable to delivery type and to ... View full abstract»

    Although project-based, collaborative learning (PBCL) activities have been established as effective learning experiences, they have been shown to be difficult to implement, especially in an asynchronous, distributed environment. Students and faculty alike have shown resistance to team-based exercises, citing numerous management concerns such as equitably distributing the work, assessing the perfor... View full abstract»

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (297 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    A well-presented chalk talk often provides a rich and interactive learning environment that cannot easily be replaced with PowerPoint slideshows. However, it has a disadvantage in that information written on the blackboard is hard to archive or share with others who do not attend. We developed a ChalkTalk system that automatically produces e-learning materials from a videotaped chalk talk lecture ... View full abstract»

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1431 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    This work is based on the premise that the interactional construction of meaning is as important in online settings as it is face-to-face, especially in collaborative learning. Yet most studies of online learning use quantitative methods that assign meaning to contributions in isolation and aggregate over many sessions, obscuring the situated procedures by which participants accomplish learning th...

    As teachers gain practical experience, they develop best practices, often exploring and refining personal innovations as part of their pedagogy. However, many of these good ideas are practiced in isolation - there is little infrastructure for sharing and knowledge management in schools. We describe Teacher Bridge, a suite of tools and an associated online community for teachers' professional devel... View full abstract»

    To understand the role of supply chain visibility in creating strategic value, this study applies the dynamic capabilities view to investigate the nature of supply chain visibility. This research identifies four important measurable constructs of supply chain visibility that are proposed to drive supply chain reconfigurability and improve supply chain performance. They are sensing for visibility, ... View full abstract»

    The derivation of specific models from reference models corresponds with the creation of reference model variants. Research on the design of such variant constructions generally assumes an unchangeable stock of reference models. The potential inherent in the management of these variant constructions which reflect the changes in jointly designed reference models through time and, in doing so, their... View full abstract»
