Hi there, my name is Martin Kolb. I work as a teacher for business administration and English at a vocational college in Bayreuth, Germany. Before that I studied Wirtschaftspädagogik, a special German course of studies for business pedagogy. Professionally I am especially interested in teaching students in e-commerce. I am also the contact person for the Erasmus+ project “Fit for E-Commerce”.

For my diploma thesis I created a web-based system called “VT-learn” for creating and correcting online tests which was in use at the Lehrstuhl für Wirtschaftspädagogik und Personalentwicklung of the Friedrich-Alexander University Erlangen-Nuremberg for about seven years. The system was coded in PHP and Javascript and included the possibilty to create tasks for students with open, multiple-choice, sorting and matching tasks. Currently I am not working on it anymore, but may do so in the future

More recently I developed a macOS app for creating gapped texts and cloze tests called Gapped and Docxtor an app for converting office documents. Both apps are written in RubyMotion which is a Rubyesque way to write apps for iOS, Android and macOS.

My other interests are everything about Apple Macintosh Computers, playing guitar, photography, cycling and woodworking.
