Two full papers accepted to ACM CompEd 2019

Today, we were notified that we had two papers accepted to the ACM’s new computer education conference CompEd for 2019, located in Chengdu, China. The two papers are:

  • “Five Years of Graduate CS Education Online and at Scale”, by myself, Charles Isbell, Thad Starner, and Ashok Goel. The paper looks at the OMSCS program, with a special focus on how the computer science subject matter uniquely intersects with the program’s scale.
  • “Replicating and Unraveling Performance and Behavioral Differences between an Online and a Traditional CS Course”, by myself and Melinda McDaniel. The paper looks at Georgia Tech’s CS1301 and compares students’ performance, attitudes, and motivations between online and in-person versions.

To see the abstracts for these papers, keep reading after the jump.
