The aim of this study is to investigate the computer supported collaborative problem solving processes using the dual eye-tracking method. 18 university students participated in this study, and 9 pairs tried to solve 10 geometry problems using Virtual Math Team (VMT) online environment. Which situations the participants' eye movements, and eye gazes overlap, and how usability of VMT environment affect the problem solving processes are tried to identify. After experiments with two eye-trackers, a questionnaire including System Usability Scale and open-ended questions was filled by participants. Eye-tracker data were analyzed both quantitatively using cross-recurrence analysis, and qualitatively using interaction analysis. Analysis of eye-tracker data and open-ended questions are consistent, and support to each other. Results show that pairs collaborating with higher level have more gazes overlapping, more shared understanding, and anticipatory gazes than pairs having with low level. Also, usability of the system and awareness tools affect the collaboration processes.

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...
What predicts exam scores in science classes with online practice supplement at secondary education: a learning analytics study via chaid
Nalça, Ceylan; Yıldırım, İbrahim Soner; Sacip, Toker; Department of Computer Education and Instructional Technology (2021-2-15)
In this study, within the scope of Learning Analytics; in a determined Learning Management System, the performance of the first semester Science exam of 6491students studying in the 5th,6th, 7thand 8thgrades among different private schools in Turkey and the variables that affect the exam performance are predicted. For the analysis of the study, Chi-square Automatic Interaction Detector (CHAID) classification technique, which is one of the decision tree methods, offere...
Analyzing the effects of the personality traits on the success of online collaborative groups
Kucukozer-Cavdar, Seyma; Taşkaya Temizel, Tuğba (Elsevier BV; 2016-06-23)
The purpose of this study is to analyze how efficient online study groups can be formed among students based on their personality traits. A survey consisting of Ten Item Personality Inventory (TIPI) was conducted among the undergraduate students in a well-known university. Eighty-two students who did not know each other were assigned to 35 small online groups based on their personality characteristics. The group members were then asked to study collaboratively on a task by communicating via the university's...
Online collaboration: Collaborative behavior patterns and factors affecting globally distributed team performance
Serce, Fatma Cemile; Swigger, Kathleen; Alpaslan, Ferda Nur; Brazile, Robert; Dafoulas, George; Lopez, Victor (2011-01-01)
Studying the collaborative behavior of online learning teams and how this behavior is related to communication mode and task type is a complex process. Research about small group learning suggests that a higher percentage of social interactions occur in synchronous rather than asynchronous mode, and that students spend more time in task-oriented interaction in asynchronous discussions than in synchronous mode. This study analyzed the collaborative interaction patterns of global software development learning...
Evaluating working memory capacity and cognitive load in learning from goal based scenario centered 3D multimedia
Kilic, Eylem; Yıldırım, Zahide (2010-02-08)
The purpose of this study is to investigate working memory capacity and cognitive load in learning from Goal Based Scenario centered 3D multimedia learning environment (GBSc3DM) designed based on Cognitive Load Theory (CLT). GBSc3DM was developed in two versions. In the designed of the first version (+CLT) cognitive load principles were applied. In the second version (-CLT), however, the principles were violated. 47 11(th) grade high school students were selected based on their working memory capacity (WMC)...
