Hi @mozzadrella, thanks for these links, this is exactly the type of things we were looking for. We also found a couple of additional papers that have some results related to this question (of course right after I posted this question):
- E. Bonakdarian, Pushing Git & GitHub in Undergraduate Computer Science Classes, Journal of Computing Sciences in Colleges, Volume 32 Issue 3, January 2017, presented at the 32nd Annual Consortium for Computing Sciences in Colleges – Eastern Conference, Frostburg State University, Frostburg, MD, October 28-29, 2016
- Joseph Feliciano, Margaret-Anne Storey, and Alexey Zagalsky. 2016. Student experiences using GitHub in software engineering courses: a case study. In Proceedings of the 38th International Conference on Software Engineering Companion (ICSE '16). ACM, New York, NY, USA, 422-431. DOI: https://doi.org/10.1145/2889160.2889195
The last one is from some of the same authors as the “The Emergence of GitHub as a Collaborative Platform for Education” and the storybench.org article you posted.
