Tools for Tracing the Development of Concepts through Discussions Mediated by a CSCL Environment A Case Study
Afacan, Gülgün; Çakır, Murat Perit (null; 2015-06-07)
This case study explores the use of learning analytics techniques to monitor students’ conceptual development evidenced in time-stamped logs of a CSCL environment that provides chat, shared whiteboard, and wiki features. The study was conducted in a graduate level research methods course, which included online assignments that required students to collaboratively discuss questions related to statistical methods in chat sessions and submit their answers through co-authored wiki documents. This paper demonstr...
The effects of metacognitive knowledge on the pre-service teachers' participation in the asynchronous online forum
Topcu, Abdullah; Ubuz, Behiye (2008-01-01)
This paper researches the effects that students' metacognitive knowledge has on their participation in online forum discussions, which form part of a web-based asynchronous course based on a constructivist instructional approach. Metacognitive knowledge increases learners' ability to be independent learners, which is an indispensable characteristic of the distant learner. The study was carried out with 32 third-grade pre-service teachers. Each message in the forum discussions was analyzed in terms of intera...
Adoption of online multimedia resources in a general chemistry laboratory course context: A case study
Tisoglu, Secil; Çağıltay, Kürşat; Kursun, Engin (2020-01-01)
Pre-laboratory practices and online pre-laboratory resources have been implemented in laboratory courses through various instructional approaches. This study seeks to elicit information about how online multimedia resources are embraced and used in the course system and which factors might affect the adoption of the resources in this context. This research was designed as a case study in order to explore the enablers and barriers of online multimedia resource adoption and associated problems in the system t...
Service oriented development through aximatic design
Kuloğlu, Ebru; Doğru, Ali Hikmet; Toğay, Cengiz; Department of Computer Engineering (2011)
This research combines the methodology proposed in Axiomatic Design Theory (ADT) with a service oriented decomposition approach for systematic development of Service Oriented Architecture compliant systems. A previous study had applied ADT to component oriented development where simultaneous specification and decomposition of models related to requirements, design, product domain, and components were supported. Recently, Web services have gained popularity and they became a more desired alternative to compo...
Repurposing Online Videos for Exploratory Design Research
Eren, Gizem Hediye; Korkut, Fatma (2019-11-20)
This paper presents the development of a generative toolkit which utilizes user-generated online videos (UGVs) as found data and repurposes them for exploratory design research and idea generation. The toolkit aims at supporting design students to browse, select and analyse UGVs for generating design insights and ideas for unfamiliar problem domains and hard-to-access user groups. The toolkit development process started with a retrospective analysis of a selection of industrial design studio projects follow...
