We develop a large number of software tools and hosting infrastructures to support the research developed at the Department. We will be detailing in this section the different tools available. You can take a look for the moment at the offer available within the UPF Knowledge Portal, the innovations created in the context of EU projects in the Innovation Radar and the software sections of some of our research groups:

PyramidApp: scalable technological approach facilitating flexible collaborative learning following Pyramid or Snowball collaborative learning flow pattern

PyramidApp: scalable technological approach facilitating flexible collaborative learning following Pyramid or Snowball collaborative learning flow pattern

PyramidApp: scalable technological approach facilitating flexible collaborative learning following Pyramid or Snowball collaborative learning flow pattern 

The objective of the tool is to allow students to learn from peers in the process of proposing options, discussing and selecting the best option(s)! Practitioners are able to monitor on-going pyramid activities and view the winning options in order to discuss further.

Using PyramidApp authoring tool, practitioners can design activities that can be enacted in any preferred education context. Students will use PyramidApp to access the activity and submit individual option (which can be a question, comment, suggestion, or even a link of a created resource) for a given task. Students will be able to collaboratively discuss and negotiate upon a common agreed option in groups and rate those options iteratively following a snowball or pyramid structure till the complete crowd reaches a global consensus on the most interesting option(s).
