  • Dr. Peter Brusilovsky who is the director of Teaching And LEarning Research Lab, along with Dr. Vladimir Zadorozhny has been awarded a grant by the National Science Foundation to create a "Personalized Exploratorium for Database Courses." Announced on January 10, 2007, this grant will support the development of an innovative tool to encourage students to develop practical SQL skills through the use of interactive, automatically-evaluated exercises and examples. We will build upon a previous project (also NSF-supported) that used interactive exercises for C language programming: the current project will explore the value of interactive exercises in the context of Database courses.
