IMPROVE (IMproved PROgram Visualization for Education)


In this project, we explore adaptive explanatory visualization as a technology to teach programming concepts. The project investigates the value of this new technology for better understanding of programming concepts and the feasibility of implementing adaptive explanatory visualization for practical languages using modern approaches to student modeling and explanation generation.
