In 2000, he gave the keynote address at the Association of Business Simulation and Experiential Learning (ABSEL) on Using the Internet in Business Education. His most recent three journal articles, published in 2016, focused on the validity and reliability of online product quality ratings of movies and DVDs by users on Amazon and Netflix.
