Every textual occurrence is supported by visual and aural information at the same time. This improves the understanding of instructions and keeps cognitive resources free for focusing on solving the task.

The software contains about 15000 lines of code and builds on top of a generic rich e-assessment framework which has been invented as a side effect of this project. The code will soon be published under a free licence to support an improvement of the software quality.
