The software technology research programme distinguishes two lines of research: Software Technology for Teaching and Learning, and Software Technology for Quality Improvement. Details can be found in the Software Technology Research Plan 2010-2015.
This research is led by prof. Johan Jeuring. We investigate how techniques from computer science, in particular software technology, can help to improve e-learning tools and practices. At the moment we focus on improving feedback provided by e-learning tools.
This research is led by prof. Marko van Eekelen. We focus on assessment and improvement of the quality of software products. Many kinds of properties are studied: functional properties (i.e. does the program have the right input-output correspondence?) and non-functional properties (e.g. memory/time consumption, absence of deadlock, and sustainability).
