Abstract—This paper describes an adaptive hypermedia system, MyC that is used by students as a tool to assist them in learning C programming. MyC generates lessons and learning paths that correspond to specific learning goals to accommodate both learners’ level of knowledge and learning style. This system was tested with a group of first year engineering students who took an introductory C programming course. The evaluations showed that students who used the system showed an improvement on their overall academic assessments. This strongly indicates that MyC can be used as a tool to assist students in C programming.
Index Terms—Adaptive hypermedia system, learning style, honey and mumford.
