Recent Researches:  I conduct a study of dynamic interrelationship among personality, motivation, emotions and cognition in application to multimedia mathematics teaching. I presented my researches on “Method and System to Manage Cognitive Load in Online Mathematics Courses” at the International Journal of Arts and Sciences' (IJAS) Conference at Harvard University. My paper on "Adaptive Multimedia System for Online Mathematics Courses: Cognitive Approach" had been published in the International Journal of Arts & Sciences. Also I presented on “Method of Presentation of Educational Information for Distance Learning, Online, Hybrid and Tele-courses” at the 3rd International Multi-Conference on Society, Cybernetics and Informatics (IMSCI). The abstract had been published in IMSCI Proceedings. Currently I am working on application of iPad and iPhone to interactive math education.
