This technique has demonstrated to produce higher quality code in less time it would take an individual programmer. We present the COPPER system, a synchronous source code editor that allows two distributed(More)
In this paper we discuss how computer supported collaborative learning (CSCL) can be deployed to develop new skills and habits in students at university level. These considerations led to the development of an adaptive environment to develop good programming habits. We start by describing the difficulties in teaching and learning programming and more(More)
This issue's Works in Progress department includes five submissions covering a variety of research topics. The first two projects are sensor network oriented: a Java MIDP-based sensor network platform that's being offered as an open source development environment and a platform for monitoring and controlling distributed power generation systems.
