    meWelcome to the E1n1verse, Michelle A. Hoyle’s research and teaching blog. As of October 2008, the E1n1verse is with extra EdTech goodnesss as I migrated from information retrieval for the web to examining metaphors and game design in World of Warcraft (WoW) that motivate people to learn and to work. I am especially interested in social knowledge construction, persistence, and constructing communities of practice. I research motivation and these ideas in World of Warcraft, examining how they can be transferred into online distance education practices.

    I am London-based, currently working as a course author/course chair at the Open University (UK) in the Web Apps Development short courses and as an associate lecturer for other computing, technology, and educational (postgraduate) courses while doing a part-time Ph.D. in the Interactive Systems group in Informatics at the University of Sussex.

    • Dear Dr. Hoyle

      I stumbled across your “Computers: From the past to the present” lecture. You offered teachers the following:

      “Teachers, this lecture is available to be used on a stand alone machine in a classroom. Drop me some mail if you would like a copy for use in a classroom, museum, or kiosk.”

      I am hoping to take advantage of your generous offer for my grade 10 Computer Studies course.

      Thank you for your consideration.
