Behaviour analysis for web-mediated active learning

Pahl, Claus orcid logoORCID: 0000-0002-9049-212X (2007) Behaviour analysis for web-mediated active learning. In: Tomei, L., (ed.) Online and Distance Learning: Concepts, Methodologies, Tools and Applications. IGI Global, pp. 3214-3223. ISBN 9781599049359

Software-mediated learning requires adjustments in the teaching and learning process. In particular active learning facilitated through interactive learning software differs from traditional instructor-oriented, classroom-based teaching. We present behaviour analysis techniques for Web-mediated learning. Motivation, acceptance of the learning approach and technology, learning organisation and actual tool usage are aspects of behaviour that require different analysis techniques to be used. A combination of survey methods and Web usage mining techniques can provide accurate and comprehensive analysis results. These techniques allow us to evaluate active learning approaches implemented in form of Web tutorials.
