Academic Projects

posted by Karsten

I’ve worked at University of Reading from 2005-2010 as a Research Assistant, first with Prof Keith Baker and after that with Prof Shirley Williams. From 2010-2016 I worked as an academic at UoR. After that I decided it was time to try something new, and I now work as a senior lecturer (associate professor in the US). My interests are very broad in eLearning, spanning from knowledge representation (ontologies) and competency descriptions over social networks to Digital Identity. Here is a list of the different projects that have funded my work and fun at UoR.

  • Maori eLearning: Creating eLearning that utilise Maori culture to teach computer science
