Introducing Intelligent Exercises To Support Web Application Programming Students

Research output: Published contribution to conferencePaper

Abstract

Using computer based tutoring software to assist students to learn traditional programming languages has been widely explored. With the widespread growth of the Internet, universities are teaching more web specific programming languages. Computer based tutoring systems provide limited support for such languages. This paper presents a prototype system that aims to support students in learning the web language JavaScript. The potential of this system is explored by using a mixed methods survey design completed by 40 students and 10 staff members. Results show that our system can aid students in learning to program the web-based language JavaScript.
