Dr. Haiduc awarded $495K NSF CAREER Award

FSU’s Computer Science faculty member Sonia Haiduc was awarded the prestigious National Science Foundation CAREER Award. The award totals $494,989 over a duration of 5 years and will allow Dr. Haiduc to study and improve the use and production of programming video tutorials. The outcomes of this project have the potential to transform the way programmers and computer science students acquire knowledge from video tutorials, allowing them to easily access quality information that is easy to extract and use in their own contexts.
