End-user programmers in trouble: Can the Idea Garden help them to help themselves?

Jill Cao, Irwin Kwan, Faezeh Bahmani, Margaret Burnett, Scott D. Fleming, Josh Jordahl, Amber Horvath, Sherry Yang
2013 2013 IEEE Symposium on Visual Languages and Human Centric Computing  
In this paper, we investigate whether the Idea Garden approach helps end-user programmers problem-solve their programs on their own. We ran a statistical experiment with 123 end-user programmers.  ...  We have previously presented an approach called the Idea Garden, which makes minimalist, on-demand problem-solving support available to end-user programmers in trouble.  ...  help end-user programmers in trouble solve their own problems.  ...

Gardens without meaning

Rod Barnett
1997 Landscape Review

From barriers to learning in the idea garden: An empirical study

Jill Cao, I. Kwan, R. White, S. D. Fleming, M. Burnett, C. Scaffidi
2012 2012 IEEE Symposium on Visual Languages and Human-Centric Computing (VL/HCC)  
We have been investigating an approach called Idea Gardening, which addresses this problem by helping end users to help themselves overcome barriers in the context of "doing".  ...  In this paper, we report on a qualitative empirical study of how effectively an Idea Garden prototype helped end users overcome programming barriers in the CoScripter environment, and the extent to which  ...  ACKNOWLEDGEMENT We thank Forrest Bice and Hannah Adams for their assistance with implementing the Idea Garden prototype. This work was supported in part by NSF grant 0917366.  ...
