Dr Frank Jones obtained BS and MS degrees in Computer Science at the University of Idaho in Moscow, ID. He then went on to receive his PhD in Computer Science from the University of Colorado at Boulder in 2013. Dr Jones performs research in computer science education and assistive technologies. He has patented and commercialized a new approach to typing on touch devices (called DOTKey) which enables users to type at professional speeds (up to 65 WPM or more) with as few as three fingers.
Why do you teach online for the Post-Bacc program?
I'm excited to be participating in the CS Post-Bacc program at CU because I believe that through the proper application of existing and emerging technologies, remote learning can surpass traditional in-person classroom models in both popularity and educational outcomes. I believe this to be especially true among the growing population of non-traditional students.
What do you like to do outside of CU?
I serve as a faculty member at Utah Valley University in Orem Utah, where I teaches courses and conduct research. I also enjoy hiking, camping, and riding my electric skateboard.
