We are looking for collaborators who are interested in using PCLab in introductory Java/Python programming classes. PCLab is designed to help students to construct programs. It consists of programming examples and coding exercises for different topics in the introductory programming course.

[edit] Mastery Grids Interface

Mastery Grids Interface
Mastery Grids Interface
PCLab presents examples and problems using Mastery Grids interface. Mastery Grids is both an innovative Open Social Learner Model Interface and an adaptive E-learning platform with integrated functionalities enabling multi-facet social comparison, open learner modeling, and adaptive navigation support to access multiple kinds of smart learning content. Mastery Grids is supported by adaptive social learning framework Aggregate. This framework supports several kinds of open student modeling, social comparison, and recommendation. In detail, Mastery Grids presents and compares user learning progress and knowledge level using colored grids, tracks user activities with learning content, and provides flexible user-centered navigation across different content levels (e.g. topic, question) and different content types (e.g. problem, example). Our past research shows that open student modeling and social comparison effectively increases students’ performance, motivation, engagement, and retention.
