Mc Donald van der Merwe is associate professor at the University of South Africa (UNISA) in the School of Computing.  He holds a PhD in Technology Education from UNISA. His main research interest is technology-enhanced learning, with a specific focus on information systems development.

A secondary and growing research interest is Human computer interaction (HCI), specifically as it relates to the role of psycho-physiogical factors in adaptive learning systems, and in physiological and affective computing.

He currently lectures Internet programming within the School and presents short courses through the Centre for Software Engineering in Internet and Web Design and Advanced Web application development.

He is the project leader of a community engagement project (CLIC - Computer Literacy in Communities) that targets elder community members who never had the opportunity to become computer literate.
