PsychoPy as a tool for teaching, learning and researchThis miniproject is complete.
Studies in experimental psychology typically use standard computers with dedicated software to present stimuli to subjects and collect responses in a precise way. The existing software solutions for this are typically very expensive and either too complex for undergraduate teaching or too inflexible for more advanced studies. As a result, psychology departments across the world spend hundreds of thousands of pounds on software that is severely limited in its use, and need different packages for teaching and for research. PsychoPy already exists as a tool for research and this project will turn it into an ideal tool for teaching too. Furthermore, unlike its commercial competitors, PsychoPy runs on all platforms and comes totally free, including full source code.
