Abstract

In this poster, we present the results of the study which examined the relationship between student differences in their use of the available technology and their perceived levels of cognitive presence within the MOOC context. The cognitive presence is a construct used to measure the level of practical inquiry in the Communities of Inquiry model. Our results revealed the existence of three clusters based on student technology use. The clusters significantly differed in terms of their levels of cognitive presence, most notably they differed on the levels of problem resolution.In this poster, we present the results of the study which examined the relationship between student differences in their use of the available technology and their perceived levels of cognitive presence within the MOOC context.
