Abstract

Self-paced learning platforms have received a lot of attention recently, with the promise of fundamentally changing education. For more than 10 years, the members of the France-IOI non-profit organization have been developing such a platform for teaching programming and algorithmics to self-motivated users ranging from beginners to advanced programmers. With the introduction of algorithmics in the French mathematics curriculum of high school, it is now starting to be used by teachers in classrooms. In this paper, we present and explain the choices we made when creating the contents and tools that constitute this platform.

Keywords:

self-paced learning, programming, algorithmics, exercises, e-learning platform
