Borchardt worked in two principal areas: Early Modern German Culture, and Educational Technology. He was a pioneer in the use of computer technology in language instruction, and he was instrumental in the creation of CALICO (the Computer Assisted Learning and Instructional Consortium). He edited the CALICO Journal from 1991 to 1997.
