Abstract

Online learning has continued to grow in popularity and availability in higher education. As a result, it is increasingly important to research and determine best practices for online course delivery with the goal of improving student performance. In particular, online course design should prioritize maximizing both students’ tacit understanding of skills in application and explicit understanding of skills in explanation. In this study, we build on previous research in online education informed by video game design to further investigate how online course materials should be designed to maximize learners' tacit and explicit understanding of skills.
