Sphere Engine for Education 


Sphere Engine for Education is our key solution to set up programming problems inside any Learning Management System (LMS) and automatically assess them allowing tutors to provide feedback in real-time.


Programming problems are a great way to teach and assess the programming skills of your students. Such challenges are crucial in teaching programming to future developers, no matter their age. The satisfaction and rush they get from solving a programming puzzle is a big motivational kick into pursuing a career as a developer or in STEM in general. Coding challenges are now an industry-standard in filtering and recruiting the best software developers. Give your students a head start! 

Thanks to our tool tutors using LMSs will be able to quickly set up programming problems, automate their grading, and assess the progress of their students instantly.
