Tools and artifacts to help people learn together (3D virtual worlds, maker spaces, social media, distance education technology); interfaces supporting learning and computer-based scaffolding (critiquing systems; pedagogical agents; learning analytics); design-based models of collaborative learning (evolving artifacts framework; IRT-model; ABR-model); mixed methods research (individual vs. group; group vs. community; knowledge creation vs. technology adaptation).
General areas: Human-computer interaction (HCI); computer-supported collaborative learning (CSCL); computer-supported cooperative work (CSCW); end-user development (EUD); virtual worlds (VW); open online education (OOE).
