Scaffolding to Support Self-Regulated Online Learning


Recognising that equipping students with digital literacy is crucial for them to navigate online materials and increasing student agency are both important educational goals in the future of learning, this study explored the use of scaffolding to design online learning experiences to support student self-regulated learning through an online course on solving Chemistry data-analysis questions that was developed for student self-study. The learning packages that were designed incorporated different types of scaffolding and strategies to support self-regulated learning, leveraging features in the online learning portal developed by the Ministry of Education, Singapore. The study was conducted in four secondary schools in Singapore. Data were collected from analysis of students' work responses on the SLS portal, pre- and post-test results, and a survey. Findings showed that students were highly responsive to the online learning experiences, which led to enhanced performance on data-analysis items. In addition, findings provided insights into the implications for supporting self-regulated learning when engaging secondary school students in an online learning environment.
