SEED Project - Computer Aided Learning template

Pleased to have released this template as part of the SEED (Science
Education Enhancement and Development) project here at the University of Plymouth
. SEED is funded by the HE Academy.
Working with Prof. Steve Rowland, the initiative was to create a computer aided learning template within Microsoft Visual Basic to aid in improving teaching and learning for science. Writing from scratch the software took the bulk of the difficult programming away from the user, meaning only a simple compile of the software was required when all content was complete. Later applications included the creation of a guided multiple choice stand alone software for teaching elements of Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) spectroscopy in Organic Chemistry.
