Check http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4dGkA2Hk7Zg for Math Input Panel. Perhaps this port to XP works as well?
http://digitalresearchtools.pbwiki.com/ for research tools.
http://www.sciaccess.net/en/InftyReader/index.html for math recognition.
Funny, when Googling on characteristics+symbol+sense+mathematics my ISDDE is the 9th hit.
https://www.tao.lu/html/ Nice. Mailed them.
In the Galois project I once made http://galois.bokhove.net/wite.
My poster proposal was accepted ofr the ENAC conference.
I read the already old Webalt final report. I'm still quite shocked about projects that get EU money to start a commercial company. In this project the TuE used SCORM within Moodle. This sounds familiar. We mentioned this in the Galois project in a meeting with Eindhoven, they were not convinced so it seems. Well, I cannot PROVE the idea came from us. But even then I don't mind. I'm a bit disappointed they never contacted us again.
I am very interested in projects Optical Character Recognition (OCR) for mathematical formulae.
I like this editor: http://www.mathtran.org/toys/jfine/editor2.html
Building on the last post I found the thesis by Nilsson (see here). Interesting stuff. I did, however, wonder whether instrumentation (how the tool shapes the tool-use) and instrumentalisation (the way the user shapes a tool) was taken into account.
Today I read an article in the International Journal of Computers for Mathematical Learning by Iversen and Nilsson on One-Object Stochastic Phenomena. It reminds me a bit of Plinko. I did a "praktische opdracht" once with 16-yer olds. I never thought this could be a topic for an international journal, but there you are. It also reminded me of the uses of the wisweb applet Stroomdiagrammen.
