Virginia Tech computer science faculty work on a broad array of projects related to education in the Internet age. From applying new pedagogy for improving computer science education to supporting online educational communities to deploying effective technology in the K-12 classroom, digital education is a growing research area in our department. Courses in our department rely heavily on educational systems built by members of our department, and many of these systems are used by schools around the world.
Here are some ongoing research projects related to education.
- OpenDSA: eTextBooks for Computer Science
- SPLICE: Standards, Protocols, and Learning Infrastructure for Computing Education
- Electronic theses and dissertations: With about two million free online downloadable works from around the world covering all disciplines
- MyVICE for K-8 Education: Leverages virtualization to deliver educational content, thus bridging the digital divide between "haves" and "have nots"
- Web-CAT: the Web-based Center for Automated Testing
- Code Workout: Build coding skills through practice
