Dr. Norton's publications include papers on Simalytic Modeling as well as a number of other modeling related topics. Some of these papers and presentations, in chronologic order, are:
Computer Technology Changes the Business of Formal Education is an expanded version of the paper accepted for the International Conference on Computer Supported Education CSEDU2014 conference, April 1-3, 2014 in Barcelona, Spain. Although accepted, this paper was not published or presented at the conference due to the conference's overly restrictive exclusive copyright transfer requirement. Because of the importance of this topic, the decision was made to self-publish this paper to allow for wider dissemination. Permission is granted for any non-commercial use of this paper provided that use includes proper author citation. In addition, this paper continues to be a work-in-progress (note the version number in the footer) so any ideas, suggestions or contributions are welcome. Please email comments to:
