The University of Auckland's Department of Computer Science, the country's largest, most diverse, and most accomplished. The department was founded in 1981. It now has more than 40 academic staff and 80 research students, and an ever-growing cohort of undergraduates.
Our department is among the top 100 Computer Science Departments in the world according to the 2014 QS World University Rankings.
Coderunner is used for teaching Python, Java and C programming languages. CodeRunner was developed by Richard Lobb at the University of Canterbury. This open-source Moodle plug-in is maintained by the Coderunner community.
Students can work with on-line exercises with the Moodle learning system.
Their submissions are graded by running a series of test cases of the code in a sandbox, comparing the output with the expected output.
CodeRunner is intended to be run in an adaptive mode,
so that students know immediately if their code is passing the tests.
Because the system is on-line students do not need to have programming tools installed on their lab or private computer.
