Education and Information Technologies Vol. 19, No. 1 (March 2014) pp. 129–154
This paper presents a study on the role of the teacher in computer-supported class group activities. We discuss various teacher tools that support this role. In the reported studies the students are engaged in group activities through networked...
Towards the Real-Time Evaluation of Collaborative Activities: Integration of an Automatic Rater of Collaboration Quality in the Classroom from the Teacher's Perspective
Education and Information Technologies Vol. 21, No. 4 (2016) pp. 815–835
This paper presents the integration of a real time evaluation method of collaboration quality in a monitoring application that supports teachers in class orchestration. The method is implemented as an automatic rater of collaboration quality and...
World Conference on Educational Media and Technology 2004 (2004) pp. 4303–4308
In reported studies of synchronous collaborative problem solving activities, so far, there are usually groups of two partners involved. In this paper, we focus on groups of larger sizes and study through an authentic educational activity the effect...
Enhancing User Support in Open Problem Solving Environments through Bayesian Network Inference Techniques
Journal of Educational Technology & Society Vol. 9, No. 4 (2006) pp. 150–165
During the last years, development of open learning environments that support effectively their users has been a challenge for the research community of educational technologies. The open interactive nature of these environments results in users...
Australasian Journal of Educational Technology Vol. 32, No. 1 (Mar 23, 2016)
Although problem-based learning (PBL) has many advantages, it often fails to connect to the real world outside the classroom. The integration with the laboratory setting and the use of information and communication technologies (ICTs) have been...
International Journal of Educational Telecommunications Vol. 7, No. 4 (2001) pp. 355–378
Experimental results of usability evaluation of a distance learning system are presented in this article. An experiment is described that took place in the frame of a University course. The main goal of the experiment was to evaluate the usability...
Beyond Logging of Fingertip Actions: Analysis of Collaborative Learning Using Multiple Sources of Data
Journal of Interactive Learning Research Vol. 18, No. 2 (April 2007) pp. 231–250
In this article, we discuss key requirements for collecting behavioural data concerning technology-supported collaborative learning activities. It is argued that the common practice of analysis of computer generated log files of user interactions...
