The Center for Educational Computing Initiatives (CECI) is a research organization that focuses on advanced technologies emerging for educational uses and evaluates their effectiveness.
CECI projects focus on collaborative learning and on enabling technologies for educational applications, including authoring systems, toolkits or libraries of computer code that make the creation of effective computer applications easier and less expensive. In addition, the center also undertakes authoring of new educational applications using commercially available technologies. CECI evaluates how computer technology affects education, particularly the extent to which innovations in computer applications improve the quality of education. Projects currently at CECI include Technology Enabled Active Learning (TEAL), Physics Interactive Video Tutor (PIVoT), Shakespeare Electronic Archive and Studio 1.00, and iLabs Projects.
