Auto Multiple Choice (AMC) is a piece of software that helps you to create and manage multiple choice questionnaires, with automated marking. Tests can be written in plain text or LaTeX. Automated correction and grading is performed from scans of the answer sheets using optical mark recognition.
Shelk-test is a program for creating tests for students. Tests take up just three modules: creation, testing, and reporting. Shelk-test can insert images into all types of questions, making it possible to create a question such as "What is shown in the picture?" All tests are stored centrally in a SQLite database, increasing reliability and allowing you to have a database file without having to install a database server.
FroZenLight interrelates line arts, mathematics, and cryptography. Circular shaped mirrors which are arranged in a grid-like manner reflect a light ray according to the reflection law of geometric optics. While random positions of the light source produce chaotic reflection patterns, it is possible to position the light source so that beautiful symmetric reflection patterns are created.
RobotMinds is a simulation of a tournament in which programmable robots compete. Each robot's objective is to find its way out of a maze to its home tile. The robots have sensors, and can act on what they sense. There are toxic tiles and radiation from other robots that will destroy robots if exposed to it for too long. The robots can be programmed by way of four screens of checkboxes representing binary switches, so you can program a robot with no knowledge of any programming languages. You can lay walls or full maps to restrict movement.
Open Allure plays interactive text-to-speech scripts fetched from blogs, wikis, or local text files. As part of the interaction, it can call a Web browser to display Web pages, opening the possibility of text-to-speech voice-overs that span multiple Web sites (for providing tours, giving instructions, etc.). Voice quality and language depend on what is available from the OS via StaticSay on Windows, Say on Mac OS X, or eSpeak on Linux.
Theano is a Python library that allows you to define, optimize, and evaluate mathematical expressions involving multi-dimensional arrays efficiently. Theano features tight integration with numpy, transparent use of a GPU, efficient symbolic differentiation, speed and stability optimizations, dynamic C code generation, and extensive unit-testing and self-verification. Theano has been powering large-scale computationally intensive scientific investigations since 2007. But it is also approachable enough to be used in the classroom (IFT6266 at the University of Montreal).
The PARSEC (Preliminary Analysis of Revolutionary Space Exploration Concepts) CEE (Collaborative Engineering Environment) creates a single-user interface for engineers and scientists to work together to design launch vehicle and spacecraft concepts. The interface allows for seamless integration of design tools for any discipline as well as communication with other team members. Data storage and maintenance is handled automatically. The interface gives users the ability to run multiple design codes and iterative analyses. Branching and other logic operations are also supported. Some data reduction ability is provided as well.
Dr. Higgins will teach you and help you teach yourself any language. It works like a quiz, asking you the translations of words and keeping score of your correctness. It includes a number of quizzes for self-study in different languages (English, Spanish, Finnish, and a bit of Japanese). It's very easy to add your own lists, thanks to a simple file format.
