Part of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science book series (LNCS, volume 7563)


In this demonstration we will introduce Ask-Elle, a Haskell tutor. Ask-Elle supports the incremental development of Haskell programs. It can give hints on how to proceed with solving a programming exercise, and feedback on incomplete student programs. We will show Ask-Elle in action, and discuss how a teacher can configure its behaviour.
