About Us

At The Research Laboratory for Digital Learning, we strive to understand how students learn in technology-supported learning environments and how to design, develop and integrate innovative technology capable of promoting students’ motivation and engagement in digital learning to achieve a positive impact on student success. Our research focuses on areas where technology plays essential roles in supporting meaningful learning, including computer-supported collaborative learning, motivation and self-regulated learning, learning analytics and social network analysis, artificial intelligence in education, virtual world and educational games, digital learning design and development, and teacher technology professional development. We are particularly interested in multi-disciplinary collaborative projects where innovative learning technologies bring potentials to benefit students’ learning and achievement.
