He leads the research group of the same name (R-Ed.Tech) in the Centre for Educational Research and Evaluation Services (CERES) at LJMU's IM Marsh campus. Dr. Jones' main contributions to research have been in the development of Networked Learning as a research area. He is one of the organizers of the successful international Networked Learning conference series held bi-annually and he has edited two volumes, published in 2002 and 2009, setting out a developing research agenda for Networked Learning and bringing together researchers from the UK and abroad. Dr. Jones' work is focused on the relationship between technological artefacts and social order and the ways in which policy affects practice. He has published journal articles and book chapters about the application of the metaphor of networks, infrastructure and the ‘meso’ level of analysis to the understanding of networked learning.
