    ...
    Self-efficacy study: I’m interested in Wikibookians’ self-efficacy (their beliefs, attitudes, intrinsic motivations, self-determination) and how it influences people’s online behaviors in terms of persistence and commitment. I’ll use Bandura’s social cognitive theory self-efficacy as the framework in this study. I’m interested in studying the relationships among the Wikibookians’ behaviors, the supports from the environment, and their self-efficacy; and developing the instrument/ scales for measuring self-efficacy. I’ll work with Lijiang and conduct a qualitative case study as the pilot study to explore the factors related to self-efficacy.
    Independent study next semester-- wikibook implementation in technology integration courses. Another study I’m working on is about wikibook implementation in the teacher education program. I’m going to look at the instructional design aspect -- the instructional guidelines to scaffold pre-service teachers’ collaborative knowledge building processes in a wikibook class project, and the social culture perspective--how apprenticeship happens in the wikibook class project when pre-service teachers work with other participants from different classes and levels. Also I would like to know their perceptions of collaborative knowledge construction from this class project experience and also the perceptions of general collaborative knowledge construction in other wiki tools or Web 2.0 tools such as Wikipedia, Wikibooks, blogs, podcasts, and so on.
    2. Li-Jiang Guo, Indiana University **lijguo@indiana.edu**
    Wiki Interests: Lijiang is interested in the apprenticeship in wiki communities. Dr. Bonk suggested approaching the topic by exploring how people are supported and get their questions answered in a wiki community. He is also interested in scaffolding online in wikis.
    “Design patterns of mediating artifacts in Internet-based collaborative learning communities: a case study on Wikibooks". In this study I'll look at the mediating artifacts in Wikibooks in terms of how it bridges different levels of learners' needs and the community's object, and what's the pattern of novice/intermediate/masters' using mediating artifacts.
    3.
    Kanyarat Dadphan,
    Wiki Interests: Kanyarat is interested in using wikibook or wikipedia as a tool to encourage knowledge sharing in higher education, especially for those who are reluctant to share their knowledge in traditional learning or working environments. This research topic could be approached though getting responses from the users of open education resources (OER), open courseware (OCW), or information portals regarding their knowledge sharing experiences, expectations of sharing, and their evaluation of these tools’ effectiveness.
    4.3. Fang Fang,
    Wiki Interests: Fang is interested in how wikibookians share their knowledge as well as the motivating factors that encourage their sharing behaviors. This study will create a sharing schema in terms of sharing content and sharing level to examine sharing behaviors. It will also explore what are major motivating factors that encourage wikibookians’ participation in creating and contributing to wikibooks. Proposed motivation categories include immediate response, featured article, social network, killing time, humanity, computer nerd, goal-based learning or products, etc.
    Also interested in indicators that can be used to assess wikibooks' quality.
