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.
