Abstract

This study will focus on investigating longitudinal trends of distance education research. Text mining techniques will be used to extract implicit, hidden knowledge from the open source global distance education research literature. An extensive distance education focused query will be applied to the Web of Knowledge database. The taxonomies of distance education articles will be grouped into clusters by analyzing abstract with text mining techniques. The results will provide aggregate research time trends, aggregate article bibliometrics, and overall research themes based on total distance education article retrieved.
