Associate Professor Amy Bruckman's research focuses on how to support peer production of content on the Internet. The goal is both the product and what can be learned through the process of creating and sharing content. She and her students begin by studying existing online communities. How do they work, and why? What design factors contribute to a site's success, and how can we extend our fundamental theories of the nature of online interaction?
