Exercises in Online Learning Evironments with WebST

2014 - 2015

Online learning courses can often have very large numbers of students. Therefore, exercises in those environments are often limited to closed formats like multiple choice that can easily be evaluated automatically. While more open formats are generally regarded as more challenging and more engaging for students, they often require manual evaluation and thus lead to immense overhead on the side of the tutor. This project was concerned with the theoretical design and practical implementation of online exercises that are both creative and engaging for students, while still allowing for automatic validation.
