Trends in EFL technology and educational coding: A case study of an evaluation application developed on LiveCode

Abstract

The availability of user-friendly coding software is increasing, yet teachers might hesitate to use this technology to develop for educational needs. This paper discusses studies related to technology for educational uses and introduces an evaluation application being developed. Through questionnaires by student users and open-ended discussion by the developers, the feasibility of educators to be involved in developing a new evaluation application is discussed. Results showed user satisfaction level of the application was high overall, although application updates incorporating feedback from users should be considered. Developing an evaluation application was achieved, and recommendations of design and software development are provided.1
