Abstract: Motivate students is one of the biggest challenges that teachers have to face, in general and in particular in programming courses. In this article two techniques, aimed at supporting the teaching of programming, are discussed: program animation, and automatic evaluation of programs. Based on the combination of these techniques and their currently available tools, we will describe two possible approaches to increase motivation and improve the success. The conclusions of a first experiment conducted in the classroom will be presented. PEP, a Web-based tool that implements one of the approaches proposed, will be introduced.
