Dr. David Joyner is a Product Lead for Udacity in charge of their work on Georgia Tech's Online Master of Science in Computer Science, working with professors, course developers, video producers, and software engineers to create high-quality, for-credit online courses. He is also a lecturer teaching three online courses through Georgia Tech: Educational Technology and Human-Computer Interaction in the Master's program, and Introduction to Computing in the undergraduate program. His online classes provide a platform for implementing new technologies to support students, such as mechanisms for AI-based feedback and mentorship, platforms for increasing student-student and student-teacher interaction, and analytics for predicting student success. Increasingly, his work is looking at using modern technologies to improve the whole student experience, not only during learning activities but also with respect to advising, academic integrity, and online student communities.
