- Pedagogica a toolkit to build model-based or simulation-based learning systems
- Pedagogica “tames powerful software tools for practical, effective learning activities [...] Pedagogica is a software environment that converts tools and models into hypermodels. These are inquiry-based lessons that provide guidance to students as they use the software. Pedagogica tailors the appearance of the tools and the available options, presenting only those that are relevant to the activity. The interface is also used to assess student progress. It reports feedback, in real-time over the Internet, as students work through a series of activities.” 
- See also: Microworlds and simulation, as well as SAIL (a successor system)
- An example microworld shortly documented in this wiki is BioLogica, an other example is Molecular Workbench 2D (MW2D)
- Embedded guidance and assessment.
- Embbeding of different sorts of modeling software. Example are from physical science, chemistry, and biology.
- A combination of the two into hypermodels: These interactive activities challenge students to solve a problem and then monitor and react to their actions.
An example microworld shortly documented in this wiki is BioLogica.
