This collaborative research project aims at support students to improve learning outcome and engagement in programming skill development through a cyberlearning environment named “SEP-CyLE”. This is a collaborative research efforts of multiple institutions supported by National Science Foundation (NSF DUE – 1525120), which is led by Florida International University.
With the foundation built from the previous project and learning environment named WReSTT-CyLE, the project will: (1) investigate the impact that students' use of cyber enabled learning environment, at a cross-section of academic institutions, has on their software testing skills; (2) develop a theoretical framework of learning and engagement strategies that best support improvement of students' knowledge and skills in software courses for diverse student groups. This project has several biannual workshops to expose instructors to how SEP-CyLE may be used in the classroom to support pedagogy. The research in (1) will include mixed methods studies with both qualitative and quantitative components. The effective implementation will assist the development of next generation of workforce of college students with strong software testing and programming skills.
