    Motivation has never been so important since the learning environment is evolving into a self-centered, distant learning. In this paper, we introduce a motivational thermostat framework, developed based on theoretically grounded pedagogy and motivation tactics from multiple dimensions. Its mechanism maintains learner's motivational state in between "lose-of-motivation" and "over-motivated", leadin... View full abstract»

    This research was conducted as a field experiment that explored the potential benefits of anchoring in asynchronous online discussions for business statistics classes. Many students tend to perform poorly in these classes, which are usually taught using traditional methods with emphasis on lecturing, knowledge reproduction, and treatment of students as dependent learners. Course activities are typ... View full abstract»

    In recent years much research has been conducted examining the opportunities of using modern Web 2.0 applications in teaching. Today, wikis, forums, pod casts or classical email communication are widely used media through which students can get in touch with their instructors or can discuss certain topics with each other. However, the usage of so-called many-to one communication, where a number of... View full abstract»

    Universities in Germany face increasing numbers of students, while resources are stagnating or shrinking. Especially large scale lectures suffer from a lack of individualization and interaction, often leading to inefficient learning outcomes and low student satisfaction. We present the concept of instructors co-creating eLearning modules and even parts of the exam with students for improving learn... View full abstract»

    This paper applies the relatively new concept of the Long Tail to classroom environments thereby offering a new way of viewing student participation and engagement. We suggest that Web 2.0 technologies such as forums and wikis will appeal to the Long Tail of low-involvement students to increase their interactions within learning environments in the same way that Internet search and recommendation ...

    Assessments are an integral part of teaching and learning. Since manual assessments are very time-consuming for teaching personnel, e-assessment systems have been created to support them. Today's systems do not support exercises that require higher-order cognitive skills, though. Such exercises are prevalent in the Information Systems (IS) and Business & Information Systems Engineering (BISE) ... View full abstract»

    The problem with traditional engineering education revolves around the use of stove-pipe curricula, using passive lectures and cookbook laboratories with pre-determined results. Real-world engineering is open-ended and team-oriented requiring active participation. This paper describes a proof of concept study focused on the efficacy of assessment based double loop learning aimed at improving engin... View full abstract»

    In this paper we explore a combination of social technologies and their use within higher education. Our research builds atop ongoing design science research looking to expand an existing online learning community (OLC) used at our university. Our new design implements the latest version of Elgg, an online social learning platform and integrates it with the popular microblogging site Twitter. The ... View full abstract»

    Apple's iPad has attracted a lot of attention since its release in 2010 and one area in which it has been adopted is the education sector. The iPad's large multi-touch screen, sleek profile and the ability to easily download and purchase a huge variety of educational applications make it attractive to educators. This paper presents a case study of the iPad's adoption in a primary school, one of th... View full abstract»

    Partially distributed teams (PDTs) consist of two or more sub teams that are separated geographically. This paper presents the results of a study of global partially distributed student teams collaborating over a five-week period. Over one thousand students participated from more than a dozen universities spanning nine countries. By understanding what drives learning, we are better equipped to pre... View full abstract»

    The prevalence of high-stakes testing has increased substantially over the past decade. These tests, such as the SAT, ACT, GRE, and GMAT strive to measure an individual's cognitive ability. Building off of the "serious gaming" literature, we developed a Web-based computer word game designed to "prime" individuals for high achievement on a cognitive ability test. Priming is the use of stimuli to ac... View full abstract»

    This paper investigates the re-design and evaluation of an existing anchored discussion system. The purpose of the re-design is to focus social construction of knowledge on relevant information from online academic texts. We developed three prototype software environments: teacher-based attention guidance, peer-oriented attention guidance, and control condition. The evaluation of the re-design inv...
