Iako je sve veći trend prelaska na online studiranje ili tzv. studiranje na daljinu povezan s povećanim napretkom u informacijskim tehnologijama, povećanom potražnjom za „fleksibilnijim“ online učenjem te potrebom institucija da ostanu konkurentne nudeći svojim studentima različite platforme za učenje (Adedoyin and Soykan, 2020; Skordis-Worral et a...

It has been observed that social networking activity might cause emotional and sentimental reactions. Lin and Utz used emotion self-reports to investigate the positive (joy) and negative (i.e., jeal...

With the increasing growth of online teaching, COVID-19 left no option for higher education institutions to go online. As a result, student...

The excessive number of brands on the market leads to information overload. Technical specifications on most products prevent a regular consumer from determining the product's real value.

„Artis aurifera quam chemiam vocant“, tako se zvala knjiga koja je objavljena prije četiri stotine godina s izvornim latinskim naslovom. Hrvatski prijevod: „O umjetnosti proizvodnje zlata koju nazivamo kemija“. Fabula knjige otkriva nastojanja kemičara ranijih stoljeća, koje su nazvali „alkemičarima“, jer su otkrili kako neplemenite metale pretvori...

Struka nas uči da znanje koje jedno poduzeće posjeduje, postaje presudan faktor poslovanja. Upravo to znanje čini poduzeće jedinstvenim na tržištu i razlikuje ga od svih ostalih poduzeća. Ukoliko se prisjetimo krilatice: „Informacije su u gotovo svim organizacijama svakog dana, ako ne i svakog sata, pod utjecajem moći, politike i ekonomije. To nije...

Sukladno skoroj konvergenciji Republike Hrvatske ka Europskoj uniji, hrvatska zakonska legislativa se usklađuje s europskim zakonodavstvom te se kao posljedica nameće i brojnost novih propisa i normi, koji se odnose na obavezno označavanje proizvoda i ambalaže, te obavijesti o proizvodu. Bez obzira jeste li proizvođač, trgovac koji prodaje proizvod...

U današnjoj turbulentnoj ekonomiji, poduzećima je sve teže ostvariti visoki rast. Poradi toga, tvrtke se sve više okreću poslovanju ka globalnoj ekonomiji, čije posljedice svi osjećamo. Nekada se na druge države gledalo kao na političke monolite, dok danas se iste promatraju kao amalgami regija. Jedna od najvećih vrijednosti imovine poduzeća se nal...

Na vijestima ste upravo saznali da je tržište obveznica u snažnom usponu. Znači li to da će se kamatne stope smanjiti te samim time kupovina novog računala biti lakša nego prije? Je li to znak ranijeg oporavka ekonomije te je upravo sada pravo vrijeme za gradnju nove zgrade? Je li pametnije doći do novih sredstava emisijom obveznica ili zatražiti z...

Prije 500. godina prije Krista, Sun Tzu, veliki vojni strateg drevne Kine, napisao je traktat “Umijeće ratovanja”. S današnjeg gledišta, većina njegovih pristupa mogla bi se ocijeniti barbarskima, no ipak, njegovi pogledi kao i sama stajališta o strategiji i danas su relevantni, kako za vojne zapovjednike tako i za poslovne poduzetnike. Oni imaju s...

Kada se poslovni partner koji ima novac susretne s poslovnim partnerom koji ima iskustvo, iskusni partner najčešće odlazi s novcem, a prvom ostaje iskustvo. Shodno navedenom,možemo uvriježeno reći kako u doba krize nekolicina poduzetnika stječe ogromno “iskustvo”, koje ima za posljedicu visoku cijenu. U svakom slučaju, rizik “iskustva” nije pozitiv...

About the study: While the Oxford Business College (UK) quickly and smoothly transitioned to online classrooms during the COVID-19 pandemic, one of the biggest issues was for teachers to capture students’ attention and their mental and emotional reaction to the material being presented. One of the challenges with online learning is loss of attention and concentration, resulting in low academic success. In order to understand how motivation and learning performance can be enhanced using online classrooms, the Institute for Neuromarketing (Croatia), has conducted a large neuromarketing research study lasting 5 days with 2000 Oxford's students. Out of this 2000 students, a sample of 297 OBC students (both genders, 18-50), who study at various Modules and cover Level 3 and Level 4 met the technical requirements (participated in the research via computers and not mobile phones, watched the video until the end, and controlled for excessive head movement ). For better accuracy, students were randomly assigned to either look at the 90-sec video (n=142) with professor talking or the 10-minute video (n=155) where professor shared his screen with the content but kept his camera on in the upper right-hand corner of the screen. The professors in the videos were different. This was done to ensure that research mimics real life as students have various teachers per module, and to avoid quality calibration and good results after the first video, and student fatigue and/or poor responsiveness when watching the second video. After receiving a participation link with the online-lecture, participants were also given a set of images with instructions to meet technical requirements before starting the eye calibration. The whole research will be published soon in peer-reviewed Journal.
