World Conference on Educational Media and Technology 2009 (Jun 22, 2009) pp. 3357–3361
The purpose of this study was to explore the role of student online peer assessment self-efficacy in an online peer assessment learning environment. 147 medical college students in Middle Taiwan were asked to complete an Online Peer Assessment Self...
International Review of Research in Open and Distance Learning Vol. 13, No. 5 (Nov 08, 2012) pp. 126–147
This paper presents a tool for drawing dynamic geometric figures by understanding the texts of geometry problems. With the tool, teachers and students can construct dynamic geometric figures on a web page by inputting a geometry problem in natural...
Journal of Educational Technology & Society Vol. 18, No. 4 pp. 128–140
Multimedia plays a vital role in both learning systems and the actual education process. However, currently used presentation software is often not optimized and generates a great deal of clutter on the screen. Furthermore, there is often...
International Journal of Emerging Technologies in Learning (iJET) Vol. 8, No. 5 (Oct 13, 2013) pp. 32–36
Unlike doctors, teachers are not able to carry out personality analysis and teaching diagnosis via using various tools and data. So how can we build the exact teaching environment, collect the data of study process, and perform the evidence-based...
Computer Assisted Language Learning Vol. 28, No. 1 (2015) pp. 41–57
Previous studies have evaluated reading comprehension as the general understanding of reading texts. However, this broad and generic assessment of reading comprehension overlooks the specific aspects and processes that students need to develop. This ...
