About this book
This book is about the most significant developments in the field of microlearning in the teaching of programming. In particular, the book covers the creation of content and the use of microlearning activities for automatically evaluating programming assignments. These critical component of microlearning represent a significant contribution both in fulfilling individual project objectives and in improving computer programming education in general.
The book is interdisciplinary, examining both computer science and education. Specific topics explored include: development of distance courses, creating microcourses, fostering interdisciplinary knowledge, IT, management, and theoretical, methodological and practical aspects of the implementation of microlearning. Additionally, comprehensive analysis of the scientific literature (monographs, articles, proceedings) on the subject of the project and conducted research is provided.
