I’m Jean-Rémy(or J.R.) Duboc.
I’m a passionate web developer and designer with almost ten years of experience in the field of multimedia, design, programming and online learning.
Additionally, I am a student researcher in web science, with a special interest in knowledge engineering using the semantic web. I am currently finishing a PhD with the W.A.I.S (Web And Internet Science) research group in Southampton, in collaboration with the School of Medicine. The focuse of my research is the use of semantic web technologies for the modelling and technical design of web-based virtual patients for medical education.
Throughout all these activities, I am mostly interested in human potential, how we learn and how we work together. I enjoy using drawings and mind-maps to understand and communicate concepts, ideas and systems. I’m a big fan of visual note-taking, and I think you should start doodling too.
My goal with this blog is to help other developers, designers, scientists and entrepreneurs to reach their potential in the domains I’m passionate about, by sharing information about my own work and the latest new in our field.
To help you do that I write about:
- The latest news in technology, especially in everything related to educational tech and innovative companies in this area. I also keep an eye on the latest news in the Open-Source community.
- The most recent scientific work on educational technologies, Computer-Human Interaction and cognition.
I also share with you:
- General and theoretical concepts in computer science and knowledge engineering such as algorithms, design patterns, ontologies, logic, statistics, etc.
- Theories, techniques and best practices in education and learning design.
I hope you’ll find it useful, and if you want to share interesting things about anything in this domain, please write us a comment!
