Dear Learning Engineering group
My name is Yiqiao Xu, I am a Ph.D. candidate at North Carolina State University in the Department of Computer Science. I am working with Dr. Collin F. Lynch as part of the ArgLab to study how students and instructors manage online and blended learning environments.
My dissertation is entitled “Analyzing and scaffolding semi-structured MOOC forums to support social learning and help-seeking.” In this current study work, we are analyzing students’ discussion forum activities across several offerings of and platforms for MOOC with the goal of understanding how automated structures and content-based scaffolds can support classroom orchestration and learning.
As part of this work, we are surveying expert instructors about their experience managing MOOC courses. We would appreciate it if you would be willing to complete the attached survey, please click the link to access the survey. All responses will be anonymized for analysis. Based upon these responses we may follow up with you for individual questions.
Thank you for your time,
