AREAS OF INTEREST

I am intrigued by the theoretical aspects of education and the research that supports it, within the context of educational technology, educational psychology and distance learning. Specifically, my interests are in educational technology and instructional design, focusing on the developmental principles and content of educational websites.

My areas of major interest are:

  • Education in a computer-based learning environment
  • Learning style assessment
  • Distance learning / e-learning
  • Curriculum Development and Instruction
  • Information Warehousing
  • Cyber-Ethics
  • 3D Learning Tools and Game Design
