CSCI 5150G - Evolution or Revolution: Informatics Design Principles


In the context of the move to Web 2.0 and 3.0, as well as the subsequent development of concepts such as "cloud computing" and "social software", the aim of this course is to explore the concept of Informatics and the complexity of its application to fields such as online education. As the Internet develops from a technical wonder and an information tool to more of a social interaction device, education and lifelong learning in all fields are undergoing massive changes as they take advantage of this new potential. Students in this course will explore the fundamentals of design-based research as it applies to designing learning environments that are consistent with social, educational and cognitive sciences that have converged to study the processes of developing human knowledge with such major concepts as "collective intelligence" and "social construction of knowledge".
