This site is built for a course titled CI 8371 - Applied Social Network Analysis in Education, taught by Prof. Bodong Chen at the University of Minnesota.

Content on this site will be actively built and refined throughout the Spring 2021 semester.

While the course is titled Social Network Analysis in Education, this course is not limited to social networks or to education. We will broadly examine social, information, and artificial networks in a variety of learning contexts including schools, workplace, and informal settings.
