”Fifteen students from the Viope exercise group participated the exam and eleven (73 %) received the grade passed.From the other exercise group, sixteen students participated the exam and six (38 %) received the grade passed. Thus, there is a significant difference between the two groups.”

”We have noticed in our previous courses that the students often have trouble connecting the small classroom exercises with the larger laboratory projects. This tool allows the students to get extra practice with those concepts to help ensure they are understood.”
