Wenhui Zhang has joined the CSER group to complete his Masters research project. Wenhui will be working on the visualisation of software to assist learning project.
Software visualisation is a successful tool in assisting students to learn how to program, whether it be understanding the execution of code, or the application of fundamental programming concepts. This project involves the development of a software visualisation tool that enables students to view a visualisation of their program executing, and contrast that with the execution of provided sample code, highlighting points where the software produces different results. The tool will expand beyond visualisation of execution to incorporate facilities that allow students to modify the code and compare the execution of the modified code with their original code, and the inclusion of testing facilities to help students assess their own understanding. Welcome Wenhui!
