Last year, the global pandemic forced us to rethink education by applying social distancing in education and workplace training. Fortunately, current technologies make it possible to organize teaching and learning online, synchronously as well as asynchronously. Literature indicates that online learning did not negatively impact cognitive learning...

The role of emotions in (computer-supported) collaborative learning has gained increasing attention. Self and others' emotions and their consequences are crucial in social interactions but may be overlooked during collaborative problem-solving, as group members may highly focus on the processing of task information. Therefore, some authors have sug...

Emotions can be used by students for diagnostic purposes, and can help them to regulate their learning process successfully. In the context of distance learning, few computer tools have been developed to promote awareness and use of emotions. In the present study, we designed a tool called EMORE-L (EMOtion Report for E-Learning) which is an emotion...
Article
Collaborative learning has often been associated with the construction of a shared understanding of the situation at hand. The psycholinguistics mechanisms at work while establishing common grounds are the object of scientific controversy. We postulate that collaborative tasks require some level of mutual modelling, i.e. that each partner needs som...

Conference Paper
Full-text available
The literature has shown that emotions felt during collaboration can be different from those displayed to the partners. Emotions can be expressed to influence others, or masked for self-protective, pro-social or task management purposes (Cahour, 2013). In this study, we compared emotions expressed during a computer-mediated collaborative task versu...

Emotions play a crucial role in collaboration. They help to make inferences about the partner and can strongly influence task performance. Due to limitations of emotional cues in computer-mediated collaboration (CMC), the collaborative process can be impacted. In this study, we report on the effect of an Emotion Awareness Tool (EAT) designed to fac...

Learning functional anatomy requires the building of a dynamic mental representation to understand the structure and its behavior. Animation, often used to represent dynamic systems, can also be used to depict the configuration of a 3D structure, as it provides direct visualization of change across the viewpoints. This paper reports a study compari...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
The dynamics of power and influence between group members, such as level of mastery of specific knowledge, skills and competencies influences how collaborative learning tasks are accomplished and can explain to what extent specific group members publicly admit to being influenced by other group members. In this study, we show how the power of one s...

Article
Abstract This paper focuses on the interaction patterns of learners studying in pairs who were provided with multimedia learning material. In a previous article, we reported that learning scores were higher for dyads of an ‘animations’ condition than for dyads of a ‘static pictures’ condition. Results also showed that offering a persistent display...
Conference Paper
In this paper, we examined the effect of knowledge interdependence among co-learners on knowledge convergence outcomes. Prior to collaboration, two partners read the same text in the independent condition while each of them read one of two complementary texts in the interdependent condition. In the remote collaboration phase, partners were asked to...

The objective of the research presented here was to study the influence of two types of instruction for using an argumentation diagram during pedagogical debates over the Internet. In particular, we studied how using an argumentation diagram as a medium of debate compared to using an argumentation diagram as a way of representing a debate. Two grou...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Collaborative learning has been hypothesized to be related to the cognitive effort engaged by co-learners to build a shared understanding. The process of constructing this shared understanding requires each team member to build some kind of representation of the behavior, beliefs, knowledge or intentions of other group members. This contribution re...
