Abstract Trainings on self-regulated learning (SRL) have been shown to be effective in improving both competence of self-regulated learning and objective measures of performance. However, human trainers can reach only a limited number of people at a time. Web-based trainings (WBT) could improve efficiency, as they can be distributed to potentially unlimited numbers of participants. We developed a WBT based on the process model of SRL by Schmitz and Wiese (2006) and tested it with 211 university ...

High-scale and pure online learning scenarios (like MOOCs) as well as blended-learning scenarios offer great possibilities to optimize the composition of learning groups working together on the assigned (or selected) tasks. While the benefits and importance of peer learning for deep learning and improvement of e.g. problem-solving competency and social skills are indisputable, little evidences exist about the relevant factors for group formation and their combination to optimize the learning out...

In the current time of globalization, collaboration among people in virtual environments is becoming an important precondition of success. This trend is reflected also in the educational domain where students collaborate in various short-term groups created repetitively but changing in each round (e.g. in MOOCs). Students in these kind of dynamic groups quite often encounter various difficulties, which are obvious mainly when students’ characteristics do not complement each other. In spite of va...

Fostering knowledge exchange among peers is important for learners' motivation, achievement of learning goals as well as improvement of problem solving competency. Still, the positive effects of such an exchange depend strongly on the suitability of the selected peers in a group. A comparison of existing algorithmic solutions applicable for E-learning and CSCL scenarios reveals limited support for requirements derived from related work in pedagogical psychology. Therefore, the GroupAL algorithm ...

This book introduces new concepts and mechanisms regarding the usage of both social media interactions and artifacts for peer education in digital educational games. Digital games in general, and digital educational games in particular, represent an area with a high potential for interdisciplinary innovation, not only from an information technology standpoint, but also from social science, psychological and didactic perspectives. This book presents an interdisciplinary approach to educational ga...

Abstract One of the major conclusive results of the research on learning in formal learning settings of the past decades is that cooperative learning has shown to evoke clear positive effects on different variables. Therefore this meta-analysis has two principal aims. First, it tries to replicate, based on recent studies, the research about the main effects of cooperative learning on three categories of outcomes: achievement, attitudes and perceptions. The second aim is to address potential mode...

Group formation strategies have the goal of providing the participating students with the good initial conditions for collaborative learning. Continuing with the existing methods to set up the initial conditions to make peer interaction more likely happen, we propose a method for dynamically recomposing learning groups based on intra-group iteration analysis to optimize the learning group formation iteratively.

Success in the computing industry often depends on an individual's ability to be a productive member of an effective study group or project team. In order to prepare students for successful careers, computer science curriculum often includes group projects. This paper discusses the challenges of forming effective student groups, discusses existing software for forming groups, and introduces groupformation.org, a new free and open source group formation service.

Collaborative learning is a widely used technique in learning environments. Regarding the fact that learners vary in different aspects, and these differences affect the quality and quantity of interactions between them, it is important to group learners in a way that they can effectively cooperate. When only one criterion is considered in forming learning groups, it is not very difficult to create the groups manually, but it becomes complicated when more conditions and criteria are considered. H...

Higher education faces high requirements and challenges in today’s global world, including internationalisation as a response to globalisation. Virtual Mobility (VM) has a great potential to contribute to the internationalisation, innovation and inclusion in higher education. While it is feasible to encourage outward and inward student and faculty mobility, the main limitations include high costs of travelling and living in a foreign country, diverse socio-economic, health-related and even polit...
