Author:Wang Jun;Yang Liping;Bi Xin


Abstract:This paper introduces roles of academic libraries in learning management system, and takes Xi’an Jiaotong-Liverpool University Library as an example to illustrate the practice of discovery tool embedded in learning management system. By analyzing the concrete forms and operating mechanism of library resources and services embedded in the user learning environment, this paper reveals the opportunities and challenges faced by the library in the exploration process.
2. Influential factors of College Students' Team learning



Abstract:  This research explores the potential influences of 4 variables on team learning in college students' team activities.The 4 variables are team motivation, team trust, team conflict and team leadership.73 college student teams have been selected as subjects and received questionnaires by each member of all the teams.Results of unitary linear regression show that team motivation, team trust, team leadership are positive predictors of team learning respectively, team conflict have negative relationship with team learning.When putting 4 variables into regression equation simultaneously, team leadership, interpersonal relationship orientated motivation are positive predictors of team learning, regression coefficient of the rest variables are insignificant.The results imply that the unique team role and performance demands of college students' teams may endow team trust and team conflict with interpersonal meaning.

4. Social capital and the diffusion of learning management systems: a case study


Source:Journal of Innovation and Entrepreneurship,2020,Vol.9

Abstract:© 2020, The Author(s). The diffusion and adoption process of a learning management system (LMS) at higher education institutes faces several obstacles; some of which are unique to contexts while others are shared experiences. This diffusion case study compares the adoption process of the LMS Blackboard at two universities, Texas A&M University and Monash University in Australia, investigating the factors which impacted the adoption of the innovation at each context as well as the extent to which social capital influenced the diffusion process. The study specifically examined the different adopters involved, the objections raised, the barriers encountered, and the significant factors either resulting in the success or the failure of the innovation, employing a social capital-infused theoretical framework of diffusion within organizations outlined by Frank, Zhao, and Borman (Sociol Educ 77:148–171, 2004). Primary and secondary data were analyzed and examined from three peer-reviewed, empirical articles for comparison within the study. Findings highlighted strong alignment with Rogers’ (Diffusion of innovations, 2003) diffusion of innovations theory as well as the importance of social capital maintained by Frank and colleagues (Sociol Educ 77:148–171, 2004). Though describing different adoption processes and factors, each context supported the universal idea behind diffusion theory that members of a social system communicate an innovation through social channels over time and that innovators and early adopters play a vital role in this process (Rogers, Diffusion of innovations, 2003). As higher education institutes advance further into the twenty-first century and adopt more innovations within their learning frameworks and systems, this diffusion case study stresses the importance of understanding diffusion theory, having an in-depth knowledge of the stakeholders involved in the adoption process, and creating and implementing a meticulous diffusion plan to ensure a successful diffusion and adoption process.
5. The Difference in Problem Solving Strategy and Internet Use Frequency: A Modified STROOP Task Approach under the Extended Cognition Perspective


Source:Advances in Psychology,2016,Vol.

Abstract:Internet is influencing the way to form cognition strategy of people due to its mass information and the convenience to use search engine; also it is playing a role as external transactive memory in the cognition system. The aim of this study is to differentiate the strategies based on internal memory and external transactive memory when people are facing problems in different difficulty levels, by using a Modified Stroop Task under the Extended Cognition prospective. Two groups of college students with high and low Internet use frequency participated in the experiments. They answered 2 groups of questions among which one group was easy to answer while the other one was rather hard. After answering each group of questions, the participants completed the modified Stroop task. The results show that when facing easy questions, all participants would use their internal knowledge to answer; when being asked to answer difficult questions, the participants who use the Internet frequently will be primed to think about computer related tools, while the participants who use the Internet on a low frequency will still be keen to turn to tutors and books for help. The finding of this study has also contributed experimental evidence to Extended Cognition.

Abstract:Cooperative preference is a stable tendency that individuals tend to choose groups with certain characteristics to cooperate. The study selected 26 full-time college students as participants, examined the implicit association between "kin/non-kin" and "cooperation/non-cooperation" by IAT. The results showed that the association between "kin" and "cooperation" was stronger than "non-kin" and "cooperation". There were no significant gender difference,grade difference and specialty difference in IAT effect. IAT effect of active students in clubs was weaker than that of passive students in clubs. College students showed significant implicit cooperative preference; Cooperative experience with non-kinship partner reduced implicit kin cooperative preference.

Abstract:With the fast development of open access publishing worldwide, Directory of Open Access Journals (DOAJ) as a community-curated online directory that indexes and provides access to high quality, open access, peer-reviewed journals, has been recognized for its high criteria in facilitating high quality open access scholarly publishing and used as the portal for accessing quality open access journals. While the numbers of journal application to be inclusion in DOAJ in Asia are kept increasing dramatically, many editors of these journals are not very clear about the idea or concept of the open access which have been embedded in the application form containing 58 questions falling into several different criteria categories. The very commonly seen misunderstanding of the required item, inaccurate or vague or incomplete and even missing information, poorly organized website, non-transparent process of publishing, especially no open access statement and copyright statement, or conflicts between the policy statements would cause much more communication between the reviewer and the editor and delay the completion of the review. This article gives an in depth introduction to DOAJ criteria and detailed introduction to the general process on how to register to DOAJ, suggestions based on application review also is given for journal editors to better prepare for this application. And it is the most important for editors to keep in mind that to be indexed by DOAJ is not just about filling a form, it is about truly change and adapt to best practices in open access publishing.
