One integrated solution, eight outstanding benefits

Maximized tutor productivity

Tutors improve their productivity with automation of the code assessment process. This allows you to process more content while leading lessons.

Instant feedback

Students get instant feedback on their work in real-time. Waiting for a manual review is no longer necessary.

Superior teaching

Sphere Engine for Education allows tutors to dedicate more time to each student. Automation of time-consuming tasks frees teachers up to focus on direct student interaction.

Flexible assessment

Flexibility of judging programmes allows talented students to solve tasks in a creative way. This improves engagement through consistently challenging problems to solve.

Greater tutor control

Benefit from all-in-one-place code organization and assignment storage, for easy management. Tutors have centralized control with access to all past assignments, making it straightforward to monitor student progress.

Enhanced student engagement with competition

Tutors can create competitive assignments to boost student engagement levels. Students see each other’s development under competition-led lessons, which motivates them individually to reflect on their own code, and on how to improve further.

Real-time tutor availability

As Sphere Engine for Education focuses on automating time-consuming tasks, tutors are free to spend more time directly involved in lessons in person. This affords the opportunity to provide feedback to students as soon as a query or problem arises. This helps avoid bottlenecks in the learning process and contributes to a more efficient, productive learning experience.

Greater ease of communication

The Sphere Engine solution offers tutors and students an additional communication channel, designed specifically to aid understanding and improve interaction efficiency. Tutors can comment on each source code submission remotely, allowing for specific, detailed feedback for each and every student. In turn, students can contact tutors for further discussion.


Sphere Engine for Education is powered by cutting-edge technology. Some of the features include:

Flexible programming challenge design

Total flexibility in designing coding problems, from simple single test case problems to highly customizable challenges with complex judges, and more.

Diverse range of programming problems to solve
