Conference Paper
We present a systematic literature review of the prior work on Undergraduate Teaching Assistants (UTAs) in Computer Science with two goals: (1) to create a taxonomy of practices that relate to the design and implementation of UTA programs, (2) to identify the benefits of using UTAs as claimed by the literature and characterize the level of evidence...
Article
The practices of strategic communication in organizations are best understood as embedded in a communication environment that has multiple types of relationships and diverse communication links among stakeholders and institutional actors. These connections represent an organizational network that produces a capacity to act for individual and mutual...
Article
The emergence of popular social media allows people to generate and share information in unprecedented and multiple ways. While studies concerning social media data are plentiful and can be found across a variety of scholarly disciplines, there has been little research done that compares multiple social media while considering topics and goals of a...
Article
Social capital has been considered a cause and consequence of various uses of new information and communication technologies (ICTs). However, there is a growing divergence between how social capital is commonly measured in the study of ICTs and how it is measured in other fields. This departure raises questions about the validity of some of the mos...
Conference Paper
In order to help researchers who have to resort to time- consuming work on collecting, analyzing, and visualizing social media data, we have developed a system, called the Social and Crowdsourced Activity Extraction System (SOCRATES). This tool supports researchers utilize a single, modularly architected, open-sourced, and standardized platform for...

Conference Paper
Searching the Web for information via search engines is a ubiquitous phenomenon and a well-established field of study in Information Science. Social media sites also continue to evolve and by now have gained enough popularity and momentum to be used as not just vessels for communication with others, but also as important repositories of information...
Conference Paper
In this paper, we present a service incorporating an electronic online system that integrates data from multiple social media sources and multiple governmental open data sources with the intention of improving awareness of available societal data and to encourage individuals and groups of people to take action towards the wellbeing of their loca...

Article
While the diversity in social media platforms is a primary motivation for people to participate in different social media services and utilize them in appropriately different manners, the heterogeneity in formats and platforms can also encumber information gathering and investigation, especially for a researcher who might have to resort to time con...
Article
The World Wide Web (the Web) is ubiquitous in people's lives today and is used on a daily basis to get information on a variety of topics. While information seeking behavior has been studied extensively in a Web setting, many of these studies assume a task-oriented search for information even though much of the information seeking on the Web is not...
Article
As more people tweet, check-in and share pictures and videos of their daily experiences in the city, new opportunities arise to understand urban activity. When aggregated, these data can uncover invaluable local insights for local stakeholders such as journalists, first responders and city officials. To better understand the needs and requirements...
