Minh-Tuan Tran completed his Ph.D. in 2022 in information science with a focus on self-regulated learning insight. His research explores mind factors of learners when self-regulated learning in online learning contexts. The research goals aim at the discovery of learner models, designs of learning courses, and software applications and services to support learners’ recognition and improvement of their self-regulated learning ability.
