Welcome to the OSBLE+ Visual Studio Plugin

The OSBLE+ VS Plugin is an open-source plugin for Visual Studio that aims to increase the understanding of how interactions within an IDE are related to academic performance. The OSBLE+ VS Plugin is modified from the OSBIDE VS Plugin and has been developed by members of the Human-centered Environments for Learning and Programming (HELP) Lab ( in the School of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at Washington State University. The HELP Lab is directed by Dr. Chris Hundhausen. As teachers and researchers, the developers of OSBLE care about your privacy. Accordingly, we have established the privacy policy outlined below.
