Current research

Tiong has recently completed research for Ako Aotearoa on 'Persuasive and Affective SMS Text Messaging for Students' Learning'. This report presents the outcome of an experimental design to investigate the impact of persuasive and affective SMS on students' self-regulated learning strategies while attending an information systems course.

Information on his other research, including 'i-emo Visualisation and Interaction with Emotion in Social Network' & 'Peer-to-Peer Collaborative Learning with E-book Devices' is available from Dr Goh's personal homepage.
