Social media and internet sources have deeply penetrated the contemporary learning space; thus, undergraduate instructors must both address this reality and harness it as an educational and research tool. The capacity to coherently organize and analyze claims and information circulated through social media becomes increasingly important in the social sciences and humanities, as the topography of social problems and controversies is influenced by social media.
This project is an ongoing cooperative effort between the University of Buffalo's CCR and SUNY Oneonta to deploy a text analysis environment for undergraduate instruction that allows instructors in the social sciences to address the challenge above. The technology that supports this project is called VIDIA and is based on Hubzero.
