Dodona is a free online exercise platform for learning to code. It wants to teach students how to program in the most meaningful and effective way possible, by using different techniques to apply the advantages of personalized coaching in contexts where students usually only have access to traditional coaching.
Dodona is a widely used tool at UGent (~5000 users per year), Flemish higher education (~2000 users per year) and secondary education (~20000 users per year).
This project will be used to support the further growth of the platform by recruiting a programmer who can also provide user support.
