Apps are dedicated software tools that help students in their inquiry learning tasks and help students to create hypotheses, design experiments, make predictions, formulate interpretations of the data, etc. Other learning apps present students, for example, with a quiz or allow students to view online teacher feedback. The apps can be combined with an Online Lab to create an Inquiry Learning Space (ILS). Learning Analytics apps give teachers an overview of students’ progress in the ILS.

If you select apps in German, the descriptions on this website will still be displayed in English. However, when you include the app in an ILS and change the language setting of the ILS to German, the app will be displayed in German within the ILS.

The Experiment Design Tool (EDT) supports planning scientific experiments and recording the results observed. Learners can define several experiment designs from the given set of properties and measures, and enter the values obtained from the corresponding experimental trials.
This tool allows students to calculate experimental errors that stem from real experimental setups.
In the conclusion tool the learners can check whether the results of experiments in the form of data graphs and/or observations support their hypotheses from the hypothesis scratchpad or are relevant for the questions posed in the question scratchpad.
This Padlet app allows students to use a Padlet Wall in an inquiry space. A Padlet wall is a collaborative whiteboard where students can write, add pictures and organise content easily.
The Data Viewer provides features for learners to organise and visualise the data from experiments. Data sets can be presented in different ways, e.g. as a bar chart, scatter plot or line chart. As a teacher you can change the configuration of this tool.
A simple note taking app for the students. This app automatically saves the notes for each student separately.
This app allows students to upload files, e.g., assignment and reports, to the Inquiry learning Space. The app also allows teachers to download the uploaded files.
The observation tool allows students to record observations made while preparing, conducting and analyzing experiments. Observations, together with data analyses, can later be retrieved in the conclusion tool as a basis for drawing conclusions.
This app plots mathematical functions. Multiple functions can be drawn in the same plot. Derivative and a tangent can be inserted for the last added function via the press of a button.
With the quiz tool teachers can create quizzes containing multiple-choice, open answer and two-way (yes/no) questions. The questions, possible answers and feedback to the student can be edited interactively in the configuration.
