The e-Commerce Sandbox: An Interactive Learning Tool with Real-Time Feedback
The e-Commerce Sandbox is an interactive learning tool developed to supplement a course on the technology and business aspects of e-commerce taught at the University of Virginia. The sandbox is spatio-temporally independent, allowing students to complete modules outside of the classroom on their own schedules. Essential to the success of the sandbox are the real-time feedback system and the logging system. In addition to evaluating submissions for correctness, the real-time feedback system can guide students toward the correct solution, alleviating the workload on the course staff.
