Computer-based tutoring systems which assist students in solving introductory programming problems have significant potential for improving the quality of programming education and reducing the instructor's work load. The innovative Environment for Learning to Program (ELP) provides an interactive web-based environment for teaching programming to first year Information Technology students at Queensland University of Technology (QUT). ELP allows students to undertake programming exercises by "filling in the gaps" of a partial computer program presented in a web page and to receive guidance in getting their programs to compile and run. Feedback on quality and correctness is provided through a program analysis framework. Students are given the opportunity to produce working programs at the early stages of their course without the need to familiarize themselves with a complex program development environment.

Search Google Scholar™

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
