The u-STEM website aims at providing technical resources to help the teaching of STEM subjects in universities, and it is established with the support of UGC funded teaching and learning project “Developing Active Learning Pedagogies and Mobile Applications in University STEM Education”. The first tool that is available (launched November 2018) is “WeBWork at U-STEM" platform, it allows teachers to deliver interactive online exercises for STEM subjects. This service is provided to all UGC-funded universities free. 

 
 

To apply for access right to WeBWork at U-STEM and Code Generator for WeBWork, please email to u-STEM Investigator:

Dr. L.F. Cheung (lfcheung@math.cuhk.edu.hk)

Teacher gets access the question session creation page on a web browser  (http://startchem.u-stemhk.net/) and no registration is needed. Under the pre-set question type - Chemistry, teachers may type or copy-and-paste the question text. Click "Start" to begin accepting student responses.

 

There are two pieces of information on the session info page: "URL" and "Session number" for student submission. By clicking "End", no more new responses will be recorded and participants can no longer change what they have already submitted.

The system shows the list of the participants who have joined the session by default and live responses are shown in the result display area.

WeBWork at U-STEM Workshop

With the support of UGC funded teaching and learning project “Developing Active Learning Pedagogies and Mobile Applications in University STEM Education”, we are now able to develop “WeBWork at U-STEM”. WeBWorK is an open-source online homework system for math and science courses. It allows teachers to select problems from the problem Library for students to complete their assignment over the web, and students can receive immediate feedback on the correctness of their answer.

In this workshop, Dr. CHEUNG Leung Fu (CUHK) announced the launch of WeBWork at U-STEM, which is free for university teachers in Hong Kong. The code generator for WeBWork was also introduced by Dr. Cheung, it is a user-friendly platform that enables teachers and students without programming background to use WeBWork. Dr. Fridolin TING (PolyU) has also shared the user experience of WeBWork, while Dr. Beatrice CHU (HKUST) shared the experience in introducing WeBWork and the students' feedback.
