Here are links to our research outputs arising from our open education projects at De Montfort University. 2011 was a busy year with 3 full research papers accepted for publication and a number of articles presented at national conferences.
Research areas include exploring the effectiveness of search engine optimisation (SEO) techniques commonly used for on-line marketing commercially to boost product awareness and sales.
In other work we are researching the educational effectiveness of multimedia resources – video, animation, podcasts etc.
