The COMPETE Online Decision Entry System (CODES) enables competing participant teams to enter their decisions and retrieve and print their results at a remote site provided they can access the Internet. Based on the constructivist design for user-centered learning, CODES provides competing participants with the tools to retrieve, record and analyze information. It facilitates and enhances user-centered learning and delivers inter-active and dynamic content to users via Active Server Pages. Learners can build on prior knowledge and understanding, explore possibilities, invent alternative solutions, collaborate with other learners (or experts), test hypotheses, revise thinking, and work toward the best solution.
