LON-CAPA (The LearningOnline Network with CAPA) is a learning content and course management system. It offers an underlying shared content pool from which instructors across departmental and institutional boundaries can assemble granular learning content for their courses. It has strong assessment capabilities, both formative (homework and in-class using wireless PDAs) and summative (online and bubblesheet exams), with a one-source multiple-target strategy for the content. It offers students portfolio space in which they can stage materials for submission to projects, and provides a number of tools for synchronous and asynchronous student-student and student-faculty communication. LON-CAPA scales well with number of students, as load-balancing is possible across the whole network of servers at participating institutions.
Coronis Test is an HTML test framework based on jQuery. It is specially prepared for AJAX environments. For example, when it checks whether a given text is present, it waits some time, in case it's still processing and has not yet arrived. This way it's very easy to concentrate on actions, without waiting until something happens. It has a built-in mechanism for using action based functions, which helps when debugging something that requires repetitive tasks, like logging in or going to some specific part of the Web application as a specific user. It's a generic framework that is easy to adapt to specific needs. It also has variables that can be easily used from any part of the program.
Asymptopia Crossword Builder (Math/Text) is an application that runs in any modern Web browser, but does not require an Internet connection (if it is installed locally). The application was designed to allow teachers to quickly produce well-designed, challenging activities. The application features a configuration panel where the user can either enter their own word-hint pairs, or generate math-crossword problems via a single button. The math functionality generates word:hint pairs like: "four:7/x-3/8=11/8", where the hint corresponds to the problem, and the student would write the letters "four" in the corresponding boxes of the puzzle.
ReportNG is a simple HTML reporting plug-in for the TestNG unit-testing framework. It is intended as a replacement for the default TestNG HTML report. The default report is comprehensive but is not so easy to understand at-a-glance. ReportNG provides a simple, color-coded view of the test results. ReportNG generates 100% valid XHTML 1.0 files. The output can be customised by replacing the default stylesheet with your own CSS file. ReportNG also includes a second reporter that produces JUnit format XML output.
