NeOS: Neuchâtel Online System

Heiko Sturzrehm, Frederic Aubert, Peter Kropf, Randoald Corfu


Most online courses include training assignments
and offer various forms of tests to evaluate the studentsâ??
performance. Some courses, in particular computer sciences
courses, require elaborate hands-on training experiences.
The NeOS Framework presented in this paper proposes an
e-learning tool developed supporting in particular hands-on
training through programming exercises. The user locally
develops his code in an editor-like user interface and then
tests his program code on a well secured remote machine. In
the case of programming exercises, the NeOS Framework
supports computer aided evaluation as well as the cross
check of solutions submitted. Furthermore, it offers several
security measures at the system level by securing in
particular the lab machines from being affected by attacks
from the outside, and at the usage level by reducing the
cheating opportunities.
