1. Virtual Change Agents Promoting Studentsí Success in Remedial Math CoursesThe goal of this research project is to design, develop, and implement virtual change agents that promote studentsí motivation, emotion regulation, and volition control, without increasing the demand on instructors, to improve learning in online remedial mathematics courses at a two-year college. To read more about this project, please see Kim and Bennekin (2013).
Collaborator: Dr. Kimberly Bennekin
2. Motivational Support for Studentsí Math Learning at a Virtual High SchoolThe purpose of this research project is to explore and document how high school studentsí affective and motivational factors influence their learning processes in online mathematics courses offered at a virtual high school. This research is to inform the development of interventions that can be used to promote affective and motivational factors in order to facilitate learning processes. A paper reporting an empirical study is published in British Journal of Educational Technology. To read more about the study, please see Kim, Park, and Cozart (2013).
Collaborators: Dr. Joe Cozart, and Dr. Seung Won Park
3. Motivation and Emotion Control in Online Math Courses
The purpose of this research project was to design, develop, and implement interventions that aimed to promote non-math majorsí motivation, emotion control and attitudes toward mathematics enrolled in college online math courses.
