In this study, factors affecting eye tracking measures and achievement in multimedia learning were explored. Familiarity, redundancy, and control are three important factors, which affect the levels of achievement in multimedia learning. In this study, three experiments were conducted in which the main effects and interactions of familiarity, redundancy, and pace investigated. In Experiment 1, a chemistry lesson with narration were studied twice as multimedia lesson. In Experiment 2, different group of participants studied two versions of chemistry lessons. Both versions had subtitles; however, in one version in Experiment 2, narration was removed from background during the experiment. In Experiment 3, different group of participants studied two versions of mechanism lessons. One of the mechanism lessons was system-paced. The other one was also self-paced; however, in this one, the learner decided to proceed to next slide as his or her own choice. After studying lessons, participants completed an achievement test, which consisted of recognition, recall, and transfer questions. The results showed that fixation count, fixation duration, total fixation duration, and total visit duration showed significant differences as well as interactions as per fragments, familiarity, areas of interest, and type of images, varying in accordance with the lesson type. The correlations among scores of achievement tests and eye tracking metrics were also reported. The results are discussed within the scope of cognitive theory of multimedia learning design principles and cognitive load theory in the conclusion chapter.

This study investigates the factors impacting the achievement of adult learners in a technology certificate program on computer networks. We studied 2442 participants in 256 institutions. The participants were older than age 18 and were enrolled in the Cisco Certified Network Associate (CCNA) technology training program as 'non-degree' or 'certificate' students. Using a multilevel analysis, factors impacting adult learners' achievement were identified. The results of Hierarchical Liner Model (HLM) analysis ...
Factors affecting performance of tutors during problem-based learning implementations
Ates, Ozlem; Eryılmaz, Ali (2010-02-08)
The study aims to analyze the factors affecting performance of tutors during problem-based learning (PBL) implementations. This study employs a case study design in order to identify and analyze PBL implementations providing detailed and rich descriptions through the perceptions of tutors and students. To this end, four tutors and fourteen students were selected for the case study. The data utilized in this study were collected by means of observations and interviews. The findings of this study indicated th...
Examining computer supported collaborative problem solving processes using the dual-eye tracking paradigm
Uzunosmanoğlu, Selin Deniz; Çakır, Murat Perit; Department of Information Systems (2013)
The aim of this study is to examine the computer supported collaborative problem solving processes. This study tries to identify which situations the participants' eye movements, and eye gazes overlap, and how the percentage of this overlap contribute to the collaborative problem solving process. Hypothesis of this study is that pairs whose eye movements overlap are more successful in collaboration than others. This study was conducted with 18 students from the Middle East Technical University. Participants...
How a computer education teacher utilizes an online learning environment
Durdu, Levent; Özden, Muhammet Yaşar; Department of Computer Education and Instructional Technology (2010)
The purpose of this study is to examine in detail how a computer education teacher utilizes an online learning environment. The study tries to explore how a computer education teacher uses information technologies in classroom instruction, which methods s/he uses during integration process of the online learning environment, how s/he solves the problems s/he faced and his/her expectations from an online learning environment. Furthermore, based on the experiences of the computer education teacher use of onli...
Factors associated with technology integration to elementary school settings: a path model
Karaca, Feride; Can, Gülfidan; Yıldırım, İbrahim Soner; Department of Computer Education and Instructional Technology (2011)
In this study, a three phase Sequential Mixed Method Design was utilized to test a research based model explaining the relationships between technology integration and the factors affecting it. In the first phase, interviews were conducted with 20 elementary school teachers to identify the most common factors affecting elementary teachers’ use of technologies. The qualitative findings then guided the development of a survey instrument in the second phase. In the last phase, this survey was administered to 1...
