Abstract

This research proposes an evaluation model to measure a computer programming learning system success, for helping students to overcome learning difficulties. Teachers use programming learning environments, as computer-assisted instruction systems. The proposed model is supported in a the theory of information systems success evaluation, and in the characteristics of a virtual programming learning tool. The used tool was a web-based virtual robot learning system. Results presented here suggest the main features that this type of solution should include.
