1. Lengwasa, Gladys Nene. The design and implementation of computer-based spreadsheets for teaching and learning data handling in mathematics and mathematical literacy .

Degree: 2010, University of Johannesburg

The computer technology can be used as a complementary tool for teaching as well as a learning tool. Whilst not having the same level of computer use as the developed countries, South Africa is increasingly becoming a society of technology users; therefore, one prime goal of education would be to develop a basic knowledge of the structure and operating principle behind the use of computers in teaching and learning. This study was conducted at a selected public secondary school in Johannesburg West District, Gauteng Province. It focuses on the design and implementation of Data Handling lesson through computer-based spreadsheets for Grade 10 learners. The design type of this study is qualitative design experiment method with a small component of quantitative approach. This method is regarded as an educational intervention developed as a way of carrying out formative research to test and refine educational designs on the principles derived from earlier research. The method addressed the curricular content (Data Handling) in the classroom as well as PowerPoint, Microsoft Word and Spreadsheets software design. The design framework is derived from design principles generated from instructional system design theory and constructivist perspective. Design principles are used as a framework for the analysis of the learners’ and teacher’s experiences of a Data Handling lesson through computer-based spreadsheets. Data was collected through observation, interviews and assessment activities Findings suggested that the use of computer-based spreadsheets in teaching and learning had contributed positive effect towards the learning of Data Handling. Both teacher and her learners identified the positive experiences of fun and interest in using computer-based spreadsheets in teaching and learning. Advisors/Committee Members: Dr. R. Diseko (advisor).

2. Motshoane, Puleng Lorraine. The role of tutors in a post-graduate computer-based education programme .

Degree: 2009, University of Johannesburg

A personal tutoring established by the ancient universities and adopted subsequently by both old and new universities has implicitly acknowledged that High Education students derive both academic and personal benefits from one-on-one academic guidance and group collaborative work (Mattis & Dewart, 2007). In the Department of Mathematics, Science, Technology and Computer Education at the University of Johannesburg both the individual and group tutoring models are employed to assist students in their academic programmes. The research question that this study is addressing is: “What are the students’ expectations of the tutors in a postgraduate Computer- Based Education programme?” This research study describes a case study method based on the students’ expectations of the tutors in a post-graduate Computer-Based Education programme. For some reasons students have a misconception (about the roles of the tutors) that a tutoring session is a place where they will, with very little effort on their part, acquire and develop the computer skills needed for competency in the course. Either they view the tutor as an assistant lecturer, or someone who can give all the answers to their problems. The case is to elucidate the students’ perceptions and experiences towards the role of tutors in the Development of Web-Based Instruction in a Computer- Based Education course. Through qualitative data analysis the study revealed that the students in this study needed to know where to draw the line between the role of tutors and that of lecturers. The students acknowledged the kind of help that they received from the tutors during the tutoring sessions. Peer tutoring was portrayed by the students as having particular significance for them as they were faced with challenges of inadequate mastery of the necessary computer skills. It is also acknowledged that peer tutoring has the benefit to contribute to the improvement of their academic performance. Advisors/Committee Members: Dr. R. Diseko (advisor).

3. Rheeder, Maria Magdalena. The design of interactivity for a Web-based learning environment at a higher education institution .

Degree: 2012, University of Johannesburg

Interactivity has been the subject of much discussion and is considered one of the most essential and critical elements in education. As more and more higher education institutions offer web-based learning as a medium of instruction, instructional designers and educators face an ever-greater challenge to design web-based learning environments that facilitate successful interactivity which actively involves learners in the learning process, and enables them to reach the intended outcomes of a specific course. Against this background, the research question for this inquiry was formulated as: How is interactivity designed for a web-based learning environment at a higher education institution? To answer the above question, a review of relevant literature was conducted to clarify the conceptual representation of interactivity/interaction and to establish the different types of interaction. Furthermore, the pedagogical principles that underpin interactivity were also identified through the literature review, including the verification of communication technologies that promote interactivity in a webbased learning environment. This inquiry followed an exploratory, descriptive qualitative research approach. The research method was a case study, and the data was obtained by means of a literature review, standardised open-ended interviews, review of web pages, and a checklist. The participants in the study were the instructional designer who designed the selected module, and the lecturer who facilitated the module. Once the data were collected, they were transcribed and reduced. Categories and subcategories were derived from the data that emerged from the interviews, and the documentary analysis of the course web pages and checklist were used as supportive sources of data collection. The findings of this inquiry indicate that the design of the interactivity for the Business Ethics web-based learning environment (the module selected for the purposes of this study) to a large extent took the types of interaction, pedagogical principles that underpin interactivity and communication technologies identified in the literature review into consideration. The research project concludes with an articulation of the limitations of the study, and recommendations for further research. Advisors/Committee Members: Dr. R. Diseko, Dr. G.V. Lautenbach (advisor).
