The effort in the past two months was focused on collecting and analyzing user feedback on the usability of the EduFill software toolbox.
The users are the students who were involved in the EPRo course where the toolbox has been used for developing robotic applications.
This includes two activities which are:
1. Analyzing the final report submitted by the students.
2. Organizing a discussion forum with the students.
As expected, both activities provide the EduFill experiment with invaluable insight for the final report and for the sustainability of the results.
The feedback gained is positive with students commenting that the EduFill software toolbox being an innovative tool which invoke their curiosity on further studying the underlying algorithms for robotic functionality provided in the EduFill software toolbox.
With such positive feedback from the user, it can be concluded that the experiment met its goal of creating a software toolbox and teaching material that is attractive and enabling for beginners in robotics to quickly build first applications and study basic principles of robotics.
With this month, the EduFill experiment officially ends. The software toolbox as well as teaching material is available for public use on the experiment's website http://www.edufill.org and on GitHub. While officially ended, the experiment partners intent to use the created material in their routine teaching and to occassionally update the software and the teaching material.
