  • Research on the Cultivation of Students' Autonomous Learning Ability Based on MOOC-based Network Interactive Teaching   Order a copy of this article
    by Zhichao Peng, Yong-feng Wu, Ming-hui Yuan 
    Abstract: The traditional network interactive teaching system does not consider the real-time interaction of teaching information resources, and there is a problem that students' teaching feedback is not in place. To this end, an interactive teaching system based on MOOC is proposed. The teaching system adopts the B/S mode, and divides the system into a presentation layer, a business layer and a data layer to improve the processing speed. And an interactive communication module is designed, which realises the real-time interaction of the video classroom in the network era, and achieves the purpose of cultivating students' independent learning ability. The experimental results show that the system improves the cognitive ability of students by about 20%, and improves the ability of students to develop learning plans, indicating that the system has a significant impact on the cultivation of students' self-learning ability.

  • Analyzing Learning Behaviors of Advanced Mathematics in MOOCs   Order a copy of this article
    by Jiwei Qin, Zhenghong Jia 
    Abstract: The purpose of this study is to analyse the relationship between online learning behaviour and learning achievement, and improve academic performance of learners in MOOCs. This paper analyses the learning behaviour of 1,388 undergraduates in the online advanced mathematics course of the online platform named 'Erya' with statistical analysis and clustering methods. The results show that: 1) the lack of positive interaction between teachers and learners can affect learners' enthusiasm for learning and learners' learning outcomes; 2) the academic performance related with the ethnic, the number of access and the completion of the after-school tasks, but the correlation with the discussion is small. In addition, we also made some suggestions based on the results of the learning behaviour analysis to improve academic performance in the massive open online courses.

  • A versatile and flexible e-assessment framework towards more authentic summative examinations in Higher-Education   Order a copy of this article
    by Laurent Moccozet, Omar Benkacem, Elma Berisha, Rita Trigo Trindade, Pierre-Yves Bürgi 
    Abstract: This article describes an infrastructure that is currently being deployed across a university to enable teachers to conduct online exams for their courses. We also investigate in this study how such a framework can open the way to more authentic assessments. Four related examination experiences using this assessment framework are described. The two first ones correspond to open book examinations on the university’s computers, the third one corresponds to an examination involving the use of software on students’ computers and the last one corresponds to an open book examination on students’ computers. The performance of the students from one of the open book examinations on university’s computers experiments is analysed to evaluate the impact of the online format compared to the paper format. The feedbacks of the students of the two bring your own device (BYOD) experiments are collected to assess their feelings regarding this specific technical configuration. The results provide significant and interesting indications for the development of summative e-assessment both for initial and continuing education in higher education. In particular, we discuss the directions to take to extend this environment to continuing education.

  • Big Data Processing with Apache Spark in University Institutions: Spark Streaming and Machine Learning Algorithm   Order a copy of this article
    by Emmanuel Boachie, Chunlin Li 
    Abstract: Data processing is an effective tool for educational sector, which can improve admission selection procedures and decisions. Most research papers focus on computational and theoretical aspect of education though little effort have been put on technological aspect of applying data mining techniques on students admission process. We therefore design a simple spark streaming framework together with machine learning algorithm to guide admission processing. We implement the spark streaming model and the proposed machine learning algorithm in a selected university using its admissions' data. The focus is on the number of students that can be admitted and those that should be rejected to reduce time and cost. The case study we evaluated show the practical usefulness of Spark streaming and machine learning algorithm for data processing in a real-time to reduce time and cost. The experiment results also confirm meaningful graphical interpretation of data using spark streaming and machine learning algorithm for students selection for admissions.
