TheCurves is an application that plots a parameterized family of curves based on algebraic formulas specified by the user. It is meant as an educational tool for mathematics, physics, and engineering. When the program is run as an applet in a Web page, the plot parameters and formulas are configurable by HTML and dynamically scriptable, so that the applet can be initialized to present a specific plot when the page is opened or to change plots when the user clicks on a control in the Web page.
Roster-in-a-Box is a course management system. It includes modules for auto-graded course problems (currently for introductory statistics, introductory microeconomics, and intermediate microeconomics), as well as a mechanism for students to submit answers to text questions and have the instructor grade them online. Summaries of student performance (such as student problem areas or class averages by subject) are available to both the instructor and the student in real time, and the system can send reminders to students of late homework assignments.
OpenCards is flashcard learning software. The basic idea of OpenCards is to use PowerPoint presentations (*.ppt) as flashcard sets. Slide titles are considered questions and the slide contents their answers. Based on state-of-the-art memorization and scheduling algorithms, OpenCards will help you learn any set of flashcards.
eFront is a SCORM compatible e-learning and human capital development platform. It uses AJAX, Unicode, LDAP, and supports SCORM, and multiple languages. It integrates sound pedagogical concepts that guide users and keep them motivated. eFront includes a wide variety of components that help you create your lesson structure and add content, build online-tests, communicate with others, track users' history and progress, conduct surveys, assign projects, and create certifications.
The Mnemosyne software resembles a traditional flash card program to help you memorize question/answer pairs, but with an important twist: it uses a sophisticated algorithm to schedule the best time for a card to come up for review. Difficult cards that you tend to forget quickly will be scheduled more often, while Mnemosyne won't waste your time on things you remember well.
Brain Workshop is an implementation of the Dual N-Back mental exercise. This exercise is a mental activity that has been scientifically shown to improve your working memory (short-term memory) and fluid intelligence. The game involves remembering a sequence of spoken letters and a sequence of positions of a square at the same time. Brain Workshop includes additional challenging game modes beyond Dual N-Back.
