Dr Linhao Fang


I had an academic background in E-learning systems and their design and evaluation. My doctoral thesis explored students’ self-regulation behaviour and sought effective enabling intervention via technological means.

I have been an active researcher who worked on various multi-disciplinary research projects in the past 10 years. I used a Design Science (IS) approach in my PhD and several other projects.


Research interests

The multi-disciplinary nature of Design Science has extended my research interests to a range of topics including Educational Technology, Educational Psychology, Human-Computer Interaction, Information Technology Use, Digitalisation and Digital Transformation, and some recent exposure to the Industrial Internet of Things(IIoT) and Smart Manufacturing.
