Sun 4 Nov 2018 15:30 - 15:35 at Beacon Hill - Collaborative Programming

App Inventor is a web-based blocks programming environment that allows people of all ages and experiences to build mobile apps.

App Inventor was initially designed for a single user. Developers and researchers are now investigating how to enhance App Inventor’s support for collaboration between two people building a single app. We designed an experiment to evaluate different ways people work together in App Inventor to gain insight on how to improve collaboration in blocks programming environments.
