A Multimodal Approach to Coding Discourse: Collaboration, Distributed Cognition, and Geometric Reasoning
International Journal of Computer-Supported Collaborative Learning Vol. 6, No. 2 (June 2011) pp. 253–278
Our research aims to identify children's communicative strategies when faced with the task of solving a geometric puzzle in CSCL contexts. We investigated how to identify and trace "distributed cognition" in problem-solving interactions based on...
The Effects of Training, Modality, and Redundancy on the Development of a Historical Inquiry Strategy in a Multimedia Learning Environment
Journal of Interactive Online Learning Vol. 8, No. 3 (2009) pp. 255–269
The purpose of this study was to assess the effects of training, modality, and redundancy on the participants' ability to apply and recall a historical inquiry strategy. An experimental research design was utilized with presentation mode as the...
Australasian Journal of Educational Technology Vol. 26, No. 6 (Jan 01, 2010)
There is now widespread recognition of the changing nature of students in higher education: they are demographically diverse, have extensive external time demands, and expect greater flexibility and support during their programs. As a consequence of ...
Web-based lecture technologies and learning and teaching: a study of change in four Australian universities
Australasian Journal of Educational Technology Vol. 26, No. 8 (Jan 01, 2010)
The uptake of web-based lecture technologies for recording and delivering live lectures has increased markedly in recent years. Students have responded positively, and for many their use has transformed learning – freeing them up from rigid...
Web-Based Lecture Technologies and Learning and Teaching: A Study of Change in Four Australian Universities

Web-based lecture technologies (WBLT) have gained popularity amongst universities in Australia as a tool for delivering lecture recordings to students in close to real time. This paper reports on a selection of results from a larger research project ...
World Conference on Educational Media and Technology 2008 (Jun 30, 2008) pp. 3733–3750
There is now widespread recognition of the changing nature of students in higher education: they come from a wider sphere of the community; they are busier with work and family commitments outside their study; and they demand greater flexibility and ...
Supporting Students' Construction of Scientific Explanations by Fading Scaffolds in Instructional Materials
Journal of the Learning Sciences Vol. 15, No. 2 (2006) pp. 153–191
The purpose of this study was to determine whether providing students with continuous written instructional support or fading written instructional support (scaffolds) better prepares students to construct scientific explanations when they are no...
