Drexel University's College of Computing & Informatics ( (CCI) presents its fifth event in its monthly MS in Information Webinar Series:

"Online Collaboration and Other Dangerous Feats"
Thursday, March 5, 2020
12:00 p.m. to 12:45 p.m. EST

Abstract: Participation in online spaces promises new forms of productivity, civic discourse, and interpersonal connection. But in an online world where people regularly encounter harassment and disinformation, participation can be difficult and even dangerous for some. In this short talk, we'll explore the online world as an uneven playing field where some feel safe while others feel excluded and talk about the ways that human-computer interaction (HCI) and/or user experience (UX) might be able to help. This webinar is presented by Associate Professor and Director of the MS in Information Program, Andrea Forte, PhD (

This online event is free and open to all.

* May 13, 2020 - 12:00 p.m. - 12:45 p.m. EST: Xia Lin, PhD on “Information Seeking and Knowledge Graph” – Abstract: Information seeking is the process through which people navigate through the knowledge space to obtain useful information for their information needs. The process is often compared to navigation in the physical space. While people depend on geographical maps or GPS to navigate the physical space, there are no reliable knowledge maps or GPS for information seeking. In this talk, CCI Professor and Information Science Department Head Xia Lin, PhD will discuss the research front on knowledge map and knowledge graph creation through concept mapping, knowledge representation, and information visualization.
