My Research

I am particularly interested in Learning Analytics. Automating the analysis process of Reflective Writings would contribute to enhancing your ability to make analytical thinking or personal reflection visible in your writing or online deliberation; your social capital as reflected in your learning networks; your dispositions towards your learning.
