Profs Study How to Build a Better Online Forum
Two UT Dallas professors won a best-paper award from the annual Information Systems Society Conference for research aimed at helping companies determine when to offer expert assistance to online forums. Both information systems professors at UT Dallas’ Naveen Jindal School of Management, Dr. Vijay Mookerjee and his wife, Dr. Radha Mookerjee, worked on the paper with Dr. Wael Jabr, a PhD alumnus of the Jindal School who is now at the University of Calgary. The group studied online user forums, which are Internet discussion sites that typically rely on user and volunteer contributions. Their research could help companies manage these forums, where occasional expert input could help resolve tough or time-consuming issues for customers. The group studied hardware and software firms, but their findings have potential for many types of customer online user forums, according to the paper, “An Analysis of the Delay in Customer Support Forums: An Analytical and Empirical Approach.”
