Abstract: Learning to program remotely can be difficult for novices due to a lack of adequate online communication and coding tools. The current paper empirically assessed the impact of real-time collaboration and awareness tools on improving remote programming learning and instruction. Novice programmers were randomly assigned to use either screenshare, a shared online programming notebook (with real-time collaboration), or a shared notebook with awareness tools (shared gaze, mouse and scroll position) with an instructor. Findings revealed that students learned better in the condition where they had access to both real-time collaboration and awareness tools. A discussion of the results reveals the differential benefits of shared gaze and shared cursor for instructors and students and explores the efficacy of sharing web-based eye-tracking data to assist programming instruction. A notable contribution of this work is an open-source chrome extension that enables real-time sharing of awareness tools for online collaborative programming notebooks.
