SOCIAL COMPUTING AND EDUCATION

In the ELC lab, we do research on social computing and education. We study how people work together online, and use those insights to design new collaborative systems. We deploy those systems with real users, and study what happens using both qualitative and quantitative methods.

New research in the ELC Lab includes using best practices in computer-supported collaborative learning (CSCL) to support students in online classes. We are also working on studying the use of social media in repressive regimes, particularly Cuba and Venezuela.
