Effects of Internet Access During ExaminationsMitra, S., & Dangwal, R. - 2022 - Journal of Learning for Development, 9(1), 129–136
The scores obtained by students in examinations where internet access was allowed during the examination were compared with the scores obtained in traditional examinations where no assistance was allowed. These scores were then compared with those obtained in a standardised school examination on the same topic or subject, taken by the same students a year before. We observed that scores dropped by over 70% within a year of taking a traditional examination but could be significantly improved...
Decrypting the Learners’ Retention Factors in Massive Open Online CoursesPant, H. V., Lohani, M. C., & Pande, J. - 2022 - Journal of Learning for Development, 9(1), 37–54
Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) have recently become attractive at most universities, and the number of MOOCs has risen significantly, particularly in India. Despite their popularity, previous research has revealed a low course completion rate and a scarcity of research on the factors that influences learners’ retention in MOOCs. Therefore, it is a good idea to investigate previous research to understand the factors behind the learners’ retention so that an ideal learning model can be...
Comparative Advantages of Offline Digital Technology for Remote Indigenous Classrooms in Guatemala (2019-2020)Wiebe, A., Crisostomo, L. J., Perez, R. F., & Anderson, T. - 2022 - Journal of Learning for Development, 9(1), 55–72
