FIE Story 1991-2009
CI4ENE has released a video that shows the evolution of the Frontiers of Education from years 1991 to 2009. Using a large amount of data and a knowledge network perspective, the data is synthesized as a network flow over the years. Other salient information is also included. This project is powered by Interactive Knowledge Networks for Engineering Education Research (iKNEER), a project supported by NSF grants EEC-0957015, EEC-0935109, EEC-0935124.

Understanding DoE Investments 2005-2009
CI4ENE has released a brochure for better understanding the research investments of Department of Energy (DoE). The brochure synthesizes the award information to provide a visual representation showing the funding distribution across congressional districts awarded by DoE from year 2005 to 2009, and gives the corresponding rankings. Other salient information is also included.

Who we are?
CI4ENE stands for "Cyberinfrastructure for Engineering Education" and is a research group based within the School of Engineering Education at Purdue University. We specialize in the research, development, deployment, and assessment of cyber-tools and cyber-environments in the context of engineering education research.Read more about our group members
A vast opportunity exists for creating new research environments based upon cyberinfrastructure, [...]but also enormously complex, and must be approached in a long-term, comprehensive way. It is imperative to begin a well-conceived and funded program to seize these opportunities[...].NSF Blue-Ribbon Advisory Panel on Cyberinfrastructure - http://www.nsf.gov/od/oci/reports/atkins.pdf
Cyberlearning has the potential to transform education throughout a lifetime, enabling customized interaction with diverse learning materials on any topic--from anthropology to biochemistry to civil engineering to zoology.[...]Report of the NSF Task Force on Cyberlearning - http://www.nsf.gov/pubs/2008/nsf08204/nsf08204.pdf
Cyberlearning has tremendous potential right now because we have powerful new technologies, increased understanding of learning and instruction, and widespread demand for solutions to educational problems.Report of the NSF Task Force on Cyberlearning - http://www.nsf.gov/pubs/2008/nsf08204/nsf08204.pdf
