Abstracte-Research is intended to facilitate collaboration through distributed access to content, tools, and services. Lessons about collaboration are extracted from the findings of two large, long-term digital library research projects. Both the Alexandria Digital Earth Prototype Project (ADEPT) and the Center for Embedded Networked Sensing (CENS) project on data management leverage scientific research data for use in teaching. Two forms of collaboration were studied: (1) direct, in which… 

New Learning—Old Methods? How E-research Might Change Technology-Enhanced Learning Research

This chapter looks at how computers (more generally, information technology) are beginning to change how learning research itself is conducted, and describes new approaches to deal with massive amounts of complex data in the learning sciences.
