Figures and Tables from this paper

Critical evidence of students' unreliability when using Lectopia in tertiary second/foreign language education environments
Lectopia’s widespread acceptance in language education environments at a tertiary level in Australia tends to disregard or overlook some emerging consequences of its use, so a one-sample t-test was used to compare the actual differences between these values. Expand
Why do Students Still Bother Coming to Lectures, When Everything is Available Online?
Web-based lecture technologies (WBLTs), which deliver recorded lectures and notes online, are increasingly common. However, there is concern that they may reduce lecture attendance. Since we did notExpand
Podcasting in Education: Student Attitudes, Behaviour and Self-Efficacy
Although podcast users were older, worked longer hours in paid employment, and attended fewer lectures than those who did not use podcasts, results suggest that users had more contact with staff and reported higher levels of academic self-efficacy than nonusers. Expand
The impact of Web-based lecture technologies on current and future practices in learning and teaching
Web-based lecture technologies cover a range of technologies, including iLecture/Lectopia, for digitally recording lectures for delivery to students online. There has been a rapid uptake in WBLTExpand
Active learning by involvement in classroom
This paper presents a study on the effect of strengthened student involvement in an engineering classroom on their learning. The availability of online lectures has made learning more flexible.Expand
Staff and student perspectives on web based lecture technologies: insights into the great divide
Web-based lecture technologies have been introduced by some Australian Universities in recognition that many students need flexible learning choices during their studies, but there is little evidence of changes to the curriculum to effectively utilise these technologies. Expand
Tool for Autistic Children : Needs and Study
Many traditional and modern techniques are used in autism therapy, and hence Elearning is becoming an important tool to support the learning system to achieve its goals within learning process, inExpand
Can one size fit all? using web-based audiographics to support more flexible delivery and learning
As educational technologies evolve and new technologies become available they create opportunities and challenges for university teaching staff. Once potential improvements are identified they oftenExpand
Web-based lecture technologies and their effects on student performance
The results suggest that just simply making WBLT available, alone with no other strategies, is not guaranteed to have a positive effect on student outcomes, and in some cases, the availability of W BLT resulted in worse student outcomes. Expand
Using web-based lecture technologies: Advice from students
Web-based lecture technologies (WBLT) have been introduced in many Australian and overseas universities to offer students access to lecture recordings, twenty four hours per day, seven days per week.Expand
