Exploring Student Perceptions Of Flipgrid In Online Courses, Patrick R. Lowenthal, Robert L. Moore Dec 2020

Exploring Student Perceptions Of Flipgrid In Online Courses, Patrick R. Lowenthal, Robert L. Moore

STEMPS Faculty Publications

Asynchronous video-based discussions have affordances that can address some of the constraints of asynchronous text-based discussions. However, little research has been conducted on the use of asynchronous video-based discussions in online courses. As a result, the purpose of this exploratory study was to investigate students’ perceptions of using Flipgrid for asynchronous video-based discussions in fully online courses. We used a cross-sectional survey design to survey 79 students who used Flipgrid in a fully online course. Students overall reported that they liked using Flipgrid, it was easy to use, and that it helped improve social presence. In this paper, we will …

Education Technology Tools, Robert L. Moore Jan 2020

Education Technology Tools, Robert L. Moore

STEMPS Faculty Publications

Educational technology has the benefit of creating active learning environments in both online and face-to-face classrooms. With the globalization of education, numerous educational tools and resources have been developed to create authentic learning experiences in the classroom. These tools can vary from web-based collaboration tools, such as Google Docs and VoiceThread, to a video tool such as FlipGrid. Such technology can be used in both live (synchronous) or online (asynchronous) classroom settings. With so many options, understanding how to select tools and how they can be integrated into instruction is important and thus is the focus of this entry.

Current And Future Trends And Issues Facing Technology And Engineering Education In The United States, Johnny J. Moye, Phillip A. Reed, Ray Wu-Rorrer, Douglas Lecorchick Jan 2020

Current And Future Trends And Issues Facing Technology And Engineering Education In The United States, Johnny J. Moye, Phillip A. Reed, Ray Wu-Rorrer, Douglas Lecorchick

STEMPS Faculty Publications

Determining trends and issues is important for the health of any profession. The purpose of this research was to determine the current and future trends and issues facing technology and engineering education (TEE) in the United States (U.S.). The researchers used a three-round Modified-Delphi method to solicit information from technology and engineering education stakeholders across the U.S. In the first round, participants listed what they felt were current trends, future trends, current issues, and future issues facing TEE. The second round was designed to prioritize trends and issues. In the third round, participants were presented with one table for each …


Developing Lifelong Learning With Heutagogy: Contexts, Critiques, And Challenges, Robert L. Moore Jan 2020

Developing Lifelong Learning With Heutagogy: Contexts, Critiques, And Challenges, Robert L. Moore

STEMPS Faculty Publications

This systematic review investigated the contexts, critiques, and challenges of using heutagogy (Hase & Kenyon, 2000), an emerging instructional approach that emphasizes the self-determination of learners, to develop lifelong learners. A total of 33 peer-reviewed publications published between 2000 and 2019 were aggregated and synthesized, and findings explored the role that technology played in supporting the heutagogical approach and learning environments and contexts that have used heutagogy. The review concludes with the critiques and challenges of the heutagogical approach.

Systematic Review Of Adaptive Learning Research Designs, Context, Strategies, And Technologies From 2009 To 2018, Florence Martin, Yan Chen, Robert L. Moore, Carl D. Westine Jan 2020

Systematic Review Of Adaptive Learning Research Designs, Context, Strategies, And Technologies From 2009 To 2018, Florence Martin, Yan Chen, Robert L. Moore, Carl D. Westine

STEMPS Faculty Publications

This systematic review of research on adaptive learning used a strategic search process to synthesize research on adaptive learning based on publication trends, instructional context, research methodology components, research focus, adaptive strategies, and technologies. A total of 61 articles on adaptive learning were analyzed to describe the current state of research and identify gaps in the literature. Descriptive characteristics were recorded, including publication patterns, instructional context, and research methodology components. The count of adaptive learning articles published fluctuated across the decade and peaked in 2015. During this time, the largest concentration of adaptive learning articles appeared in Computers and Education. …


A Framework To Support Interdisciplinary Engagement With Learning Analytics, Stephanie J. Blackmon, Robert L. Moore Jan 2020

A Framework To Support Interdisciplinary Engagement With Learning Analytics, Stephanie J. Blackmon, Robert L. Moore

STEMPS Faculty Publications

Learning analytics can provide an excellent opportunity for instructors to get an in-depth understanding of students’ learning experiences in a course. However, certain technological challenges, namely limited availability of learning analytics data because of learning management system restrictions, can make accessing this data seem impossible at some institutions. Furthermore, even in cases where instructors have access to a range of student data, there may not be organized efforts to support students across various courses and university experiences. In the current chapter, the authors discuss the issue of learning analytics access and ways to leverage learning analytics data between instructors, and …


Building Empathy And Developing Instructional Design Experience And Skills: A Case Study Of Using Personas To Design Open Education Resources, John Baaki, Jennifer Maddrell Jan 2020

Building Empathy And Developing Instructional Design Experience And Skills: A Case Study Of Using Personas To Design Open Education Resources, John Baaki, Jennifer Maddrell

STEMPS Faculty Publications

This single case study involves the authors’ participation and observation of a massive open online course. To help instructional designers (IDs) develop open education resources for adults attempting to pass a United States high school equivalency exam, we constructed six personas that helped IDs put themselves in the users’ shoes. We begin by providing an overview of the scholarship that connects empathy, empathic design, persona construction, and meaning-making. After presenting our case study methodology and how we constructed six authentic personas, we present eight themes that demonstrate how IDs used the personas to build empathy for users and to develop …


Technology Fatigue Of Faculty In Higher Education, Colleen Halupa, Doris U. Bolliger Jan 2020

Technology Fatigue Of Faculty In Higher Education, Colleen Halupa, Doris U. Bolliger

STEMPS Faculty Publications

The study investigated technology fatigue in instructors employed at three universities located in the United States. Instructors at three private institutions of higher learning located in two states were invited to complete an online survey that was developed by the researchers. Technology fatigue was operationalized as technology-use related stress (technostress) and frequent change in technology (change fatigue). A total of 171 valid responses were received from participants during a four-week period. Results show that they experienced moderate levels of technology fatigue. No statistically significant differences in responses were found based on the two types of learning environments (campus-based and online). …
