Research shows that it is good to stimulate inquiry in the laboratory. Inquiry education can require much extra work for teachers. With Experiment Designer (ExperD) students can reap the benefits of inquiry education without hassle for teachers. ExperD lets students design their own laboratory experiments. Teachers stay in complete control: designs can be as closed or open-ended as desired.

ExperD interface

While students work in the lab they can use ExperD to keep an overview of the work at hand. Students can also store their results in ExperD, divide tasks and keep track of their progress. Teachers can monitor students’ progress in real time.

A commercial variant of this product is also available, called LabBuddy
