Mobile/Cloud Software Engineering Lab (MCSEL) is a research and development laboratory, directed by Prof. Osman Balci, and housed within the Department of Computer Science at Virginia Tech. MCSEL aims to provide mobile and/or cloud software-based solutions to complex problems especially by using the iOS (iPad, iPhone, and iPod Touch) mobile platform and the Java Enterprise Edition (Java EE) platform. MCSEL has developed many Educational Games for the iOS mobile devices. Currently, MCSEL is part of a $2.2 million NSF-funded research project entitled "Gateways to Algebraic Motivation, Engagement and Success (GAMES): Supporting and Assessing Fraction Proficiency with Game-Based, Mobile Applications and Devices" for the period of 8/15/2011 – 7/31/2015.
