Abstract

This is an exploratory study in the use of the Visual Kernel Language (VKL) system in a programming language course. We conducted a quasi-experiment to examine how to enhance programmers' capabilities. The learners accessed the VKL system through a website which was developed based on Kernel language. Self-Regulated Learning Model was used for the learners to conduct the VKL self-training system. Outcome measures were the learners' coding error records and their programming performance. Results show that novices who used the VKL system tended to perform better than those who had not. Finally we discuss the potential influence of the use of the VKL system in programming and its possible contribution to the instructional methodology.
