Software Technology for Teaching and Learning
The focus of our research is on tools that support learning. In particular we address learning of procedural skills for solving problems in for instance mathematics and computer science. Our research plan Software Technology for Teaching and Learning for 2009 - 2014 follows up on our earlier research on Software Technology for E-Learning.
In this presentation (in Dutch), Bastiaan Heeren provides an overview of our research on interactive exercise assistants.
The e-learning tools we are developing.
The subprojects we have been working on:
- Strategy Feedback 2007-2012, OU-funded. Alex Gerdes and Johan Jeuring (project proposal).
- Nationale Kennisbank Basisvaardigheden Wiskunde 2. 2008-2010, Surf-funded. Bastiaan Heeren, Johan Jeuring (and the AI and Maths group).
- Math-Bridge. 2009-2012, EU eContentPlus-funded. Bastiaan Heeren, Johan Jeuring, Josje Lodder, Evert van de Vrie, and more. The Math-Bridge project aims to remediate mathematical skills of students entering university. In the context of the Math-Bridge project, we will develop domain-reasoners for supporting interactive exercises in ActiveMath, and we will develop an on-line remedial mathematics course using ActiveMath, besides lots of other small tasks. (See also our press-release at the start of the project.)
- Intelligent Feedback. 2007-2008, Surf-funded. Bastiaan Heeren, Johan Jeuring, Josje Lodder, and Arthur van Leeuwen.
