Title: Key to the success of e-learning studies- Strategies of finding innovative research topics
Abstract: The advancement of computing and communication technologies has significantly changed the conception of teaching and learning in the past decades. Such a paradigm shift has attracted the attention of researchers from both the fields of computer science and education technology, who have tried to conduct various experimental e-learning studies to improve students’ learning performances. However, it is found that finding a valuable and innovative research topic is a challenging task for most researchers. Many papers submitted to well recognized journals are rejected owing to the lack of innovations in the studies. In this talk, Prof. Hwang is going to present the strategies for finding innovative e-learning research topics as well as the criteria of publishing a quality paper. In addition, several authentic examples will be given to demonstrate how the value of an e-learning study can be promoted.
