Abstract

Web-based video players play an increasingly larger role in educational media, but these systems often fail to support collaboration among students. Utilizing design-based research and learner-centered design, TrACE was developed as a collaborative system in the classroom that fosters student participation. This paper follows TrACE through three implementation phases in a flipped Calculus I course over three semesters. The first two iterations saw limited use, but found a positive correlation between contributing and viewing posts with student performance. It was also found that participation depended on instructor intentionality in using the system for class. It was in the final iteration, the semester with notable pedagogical changes and intentional system use, which found significant results.
