Abstract: Cupi2 is a project that promotes an integral solution to problems in teaching/learning programming using a large and structured courseware, and a student-centred pedagogical model (Villalobos and Casallas, 2006a; Villalobos, Calderón, and Jiménez, 2009a; Villalobos, Calderón, and Jiménez, 2009b; Villalobos and Jiménez, 2010). As a cornerstone of Cupi2, we use incremental projects intended to motivate students, and to develop high-level programming skills throughout their learning. A critical factor of these projects is that they are specially designed so that students are engaged in activities that complete a scaffold of a complete program. However, both the scaffolds and the activities needed to complete these incomplete programs must be arranged carefully by the instructors in order to stress the adequate contents for students, and at the same time, to help those students acquire programming skills effectively. Jointly, scaffold versions need to comply with high quality standards, r epresenting a high time consuming activity for instructors, and therefore, increased costs for institutions. In this paper, we describe the way we overcome these challenges by supporting the projects’ design in a scalable way with a software factory. (More)
