Digital feedback

Computers may provide personalized learning by giving personal feedback or by adapting the student tasks.

In the research project by Henk Pol the learning environment PhysHint provides hints to students solving problems on mechanics in high school physics. We found that PhysHint enhanced the development of students’ strategic knowledge.

In a research project by Janneke van Seters, in collaboration with Wageningen University, we evaluated the adaptive e-learning environment on its effects. This environment was used in biotechnology courses at university level.
