Abstract: Learning introductory software development is a difficult task and students often perceive programming subjects as requiring significantly more work than others. This paper describes a learning model for programming that has its basis in cognitive load theory. This theory suggests that there are three types of cognitive load that learners experience: intrinsic which is determined by the mental demands of the domain of knowledge; extraneous which is generated by the instructional format used in the teaching and… Show more

“…Whilst this does not impact directly on achievement levels, it may affect the achievement levels of students who do not have easy access to sources of help. It is well known (e.g., Garner, 2002) that distance learning students of programming have difficulties when they reach a point in solving a programming problem, such that they cannot proceed further until they obtain help from a tutor. If such help is not readily available, or the time taken for a tutor to respond to a query is long, then student achievement may be reduced.…”

“…This finding has implications for the ability of students to learn programming independently. Often students have difficulties learning programming when they reach points, when solving a problem, that cannot go beyond until they have had some help from a tutor (e.g., Garner, 2002). The fact that CORT students required significantly less help could be attributed to the high level of support that it provides.…”
