The Concept Warehouse: This web application serves as a repository of concept-based questions, and allows instructors to assign questions and analyze the results either live in the classroom or as homework.   The overall objective of the tool is to lower the activation barrier for using conceptual instruction and assessment so that many more STEM faculty will incorporate concept-based learning into their classes.
