Dr. Bruckman's research focuses on how to support peer production of content on the Internet. The goal is both the product and what can be learned through the process of creating and sharing content. She and her students begin by studying existing online communities. How do they work, and why' What design factors contribute to a site's success, and how can we extend our fundamental theories of the nature of online interaction'
Next, Bruckman identifies values to guide further design work. She puts a priority on the value of participation and helping people from diverse backgrounds to contribute to their full potential. Knowledge of existing practice and identified goals then guide the creation of new online tools and communities. Her aim is both to support existing practice, and transform it--making new kinds of online collaborative activities possible.
