Sample of Recent Research Activity:
1. Self-Directed Online Learning and Open Education: In a mixed methods design, we are looking at the motivations, successes, challenges and obstacles, and life changes from access to OpenCourseWare (OCW), open educational resources (OER), and massive open online courses (MOOCs).
2. Extreme Learning/Nontraditional Learning: Exploring how people learn or teach with technology in unusual ways; such as from planes, trains, boats, war zones, space stations, religious missions, nursing homes, museums, zoos, etc. I currently call this “extreme learning” though some refer to it as informal learning or nontraditional learning. As part of this, I am attempting to record “empowerment moments” wherein people lives were changed due to their use of technology. In effect, it is time to collect human interest stories that proves it and is an inspiration for others.
3. Social Network Analysis (SNA) and Blogging in Korea and China: Used social networking analysis to study intellectual and emotional closeness of peers; also explored decentralization, augmented socialization, and the pros and cons of blogging in Asian higher education.
4. Creativity in Education: Exploring creativity traits and perspectives with well-known technology leaders such as Steve Jobs (Apple), Sergey Brin (Google), and Will Wright (the Sims).
5. Wikibooks and Wikibooks in K-12, Higher Ed, and Corporate Settings: Explored cross-institutional Wikibook projects; surveyed and interviewed those who have coordinated, edited, or contributed to Wikibooks. Also, looked at how wikis are used in early childhood education; including teacher philosophy and pedagogies, activities, school support, parental involvement, satisfaction, etc.
6. Global K-12 Education Research Project: We are investigating how teachers in diverse contexts are leveraging collaborative technologies to facilitate a global learning environment (e.g., TakingITGlobal (TIG) and Round Square). We are interviewing grade school teachers and educational network administrative members, along with conducting teacher questionnaires. Through these data, we hope to investigate how teachers are facilitating these global connections and what lived experiences have impacted their decision to partake in such global initiatives.
7. Synchronous and Asynchronous Online Learning: Various studies over the past 15 years on the role of the instructor in synchronous and asynchronous learning environments, the depth of discussion, and the types of online moderation and interaction. Providing guidelines for synchronous instruction.
8. Open Education and Open Source Software: Researched the open education movement around the world. Interviewing many people involved in creating open courseware, open educational resources, open source software. Also looking at issues of knowledge, communities of practice, and curriculum sharing in online content repositories (e.g., MERLOT, Connexions, OOPS, etc.).
9. E-Learning and Blended Learning: Looked at new directions in e-learning and blended learning in both higher education and corporate settings in the UK, USA, China, Taiwan, and Korea via survey research.
Technology Used in Teaching and Research:
1. Course Management Systems: WebCT, Blackboard, CourseSites from Blackboard, Oncourse, Sakai, e-education, Virtual University, Nicenet.
2. Synchronous Computer Conferencing Systems: Breeze (now Adobe Connect Pro), WebEx, Placeware, CU-SeeMe, Elluminate, Blackboard Collaborate, Centra, Wiz IQ, various others.
3. Asynchronous Computer Conferencing Systems: SiteScape Forum, e-Board, e-groups, Nicenet, COW, WebCrossing, FirstClass, Oncourse.
4. Wikis: Wikispaces, Wikibooks, Wikispaces, PBworks, etc.
5. Online Shared Video Tools and Resources: YouTube, TeacherTube, CurrentTV, TubeChop, Vialogues, Grocket Answers, etc.
