In this edition of Startup in Residence, five challenges have been formulated – from one university and four universities of applied sciences. The challenges are as follows:
Workflow for education – University of Groningen
University of Groningen wants a generic workflow solution, integrated with the learning environment, to streamline non-standard educational processes involving internships, laboratory teaching, theses, and practical assignments.
VR Stressgame – University of applied sciences Rotterdam
The challenge is to create a high-quality, cost-effective Virtual Reality (VR) solution for training students in soft skills such as communication, cooperation, decision-making, adaptability, and leadership within a team, particularly in stressful and unexpected situations.
Retention of knowledge in progress tests – University of applied sciences Utrecht
The goal of this challenge is to create an engaging app-based solution that motivates students in para-medical programs to acquire, retain, and expand their general professional knowledge. This solution should incorporate case-based learning with gamification elements, adapt difficulty levels to individual student progress, and track their development over their academic career. The goal is to promote continuous professional development and ensure students are well-equipped for success in their field.
Smart assessment planning – University of applied sciences Utrecht
Datamonqs is going to develop an efficient solution for planning and organizing assessment interviews initiated by students, involving multiple parties and resources like teachers, work field assessors, and room bookings. This system should address issues of student dissatisfaction, teacher stress, and hindrances to improving the flexibility and personalization of the educational program at the University of applied sciences Utrecht.
Multidisciplinary teams – University of applied sciences Arnhem & Nijmegen
The challenge is to bridge the gap between students with entrepreneurial ideas and the knowledge, expertise, and networks required to turn those ideas into successful ventures.
