ProgrammingLand, as a resource for Computer Science instruction, continues to evolve and improve. ProgrammingLand delivers content, monitors student activities, contains a variety of educational exercises and may make assignments. Certain facilities of Learning Management Systems (LMS) are now incorporated into the system. The existing and new features were used in an experiment with two sections of the same course. One of these used a standard textbook and LMS, while the other one used ProgrammingLand, without either a textbook or another LMS. The results of this experiment favor continued development of the system.
