Up to date, there are several research regarding automatic feedback tools and the potential of bots for education. One missing area is the evaluation of this tool when they are implemented on University level courses. SOBO is a bot made to automatically provide feedback on code quality to undergraduate students. SOBO has been deployed in a course at the KTH Royal Institute of Technology in Sweden helping over 130+ students on its first academic year.
The session will aim to present the design and implementation process of SOBO,and insights of the perception of the students regarding the bot.
In order to understand the talk the user will require to know about the control version system GitHub and basics of programing and/or Java.
In this talk, attendees will learned of a novel implementation of an automatic feedback tool. Us the developers we would like them to consider SOBO for their courses, but it is our hope that they will have a clearer idea of how to improve the engagement between CS students and bots for education.
