Promoting Physics Learning And Teaching Opportunities (PPLATO) was a project involving 6 UK Universities, including Salford. The PPLATO Team was led by Dr Mike Tinker of the University of Reading. PPLATO has its own website, giving details of the project and its objectives. PPLATO online teaching and learning resources for mathematics and physics may now be accessed, for casual use, through a single interface. In addition to sector surveys, and a sophisticated range of state-of-the-art software developed by Dr Martin Greenhow, PPLATO also delivered a resource equivalent to about 4 online books of materials (Acrobat Reader 6.0, or above, is necessary - free download).

Computer Assessment - online modules

Over 50 mathematics tests were developed for private study or for online delivery (via webpages or virtual learning environments). Assessments typically have randomly-selected questions and parameters. Importantly, intelligent feedback (including complete solutions) turns each assessment into a valuable learning experience.
