Developing an Interactive Web-Application for Instructions Involving Networks

Principal Investigator:

Changhyun Kwon, University at Buffalo

The growing network-based concepts in many disciplines and the difficulties for both instructors and students in transferring the notions of networks necessitate an interactive and easy-to-access platform for efficient communication. Motivated by this need, this project will use the most recent web technologies to improve educational effectiveness in teaching both scientific concepts and computational methods in a connected world. The project aims to develop an interactive web-application that will be readily sharable with all SUNY instructors teaching network related materials. The proposed web-application will interactively respond to needs of instructors and students, and help teaching and learning difficult notions, often written in complicated mathematical notations, with visualized information. Three SUNY instructors including the PI will test the web-application in real courses.
