STute is computer aided learning software that facilitates the learning of a comprehensive range of topics to service introductory soil science through: o Delivery of material in small sequential segments. Large blocks of text are avoided enabling focus on segments of learning. o The provision of an extensive collection of images of soils and landscapes which allow students to become familiar with a range of material which would otherwise required extensive travel to experience. Availability in this format facilitates easy revision.o The delivery of video demonstrating dynamic topics such as water flow, texture determination and tests for structural stability.o The use of animation of more complex soil processes. Dynamic concepts can be developed in the classroom but this is difficult in text based materials. Animation resolves this difficulty.o The provision of assessment items that provide immediate feedback and scoring.
