Innovative software applications may prove to be advantageous in a teaching environment. It has been proven that technological teaching produces better achievement in class and an increased interest in the relevant field of teaching. Software that is able to produce a basic geotechnical report will give civil engineering students an insight into the field of geotechnical engineering and an understanding of the relevant inputs required and the outputs generated. A fundamental understanding of site investigations and related reports is an important aspect of geotechnical engineering training.
