What happened to Challenge FRAP?

Challenge WORKBOOK - an upgrade from Challenge FRAP

Two previous versions of the software came before WORKBOOK. These were called Challenge FRAP 1.0 and 2.0. Challenge WORKBOOK features the following improvements over FRAP 2.0

  • A spell-checker
  • An improved, more professional interface
  • Improved hyperlinking facilities
  • More examples to aid use
  • Back browsing and forward browsing functionality
  • An export function to HTML
  • Better formatting
  • Improved tutor comments functionality

The FRAP stood for "Form for Recording the Analysis of Problems". It was decided to rename the new version WORKBOOK as this is a reflection of what the software does (facilitates keeping student workbooks) and is less cryptic.

CHALLENGE FRAP (version 2.0) was made available on July 31st, 2006. This was a complete re-write from FRAP 1.0, made possible by a grant from the New Zealand Tertiary Education Commission. Details of the grant, and other grant outputs such as PBL Interactive, can be found at http://pbl.massey.ac.nz.

CHALLENGE FRAP 2.0 has been superceded by Challenge WORKBOOK 3.0.
