This work is inserted in context of Project TestPar - Software testing applied to Concurrent Programs. This project aiming the proposition of techniques, criteria and tools for test of concurrent programs. Currently, it was proposed ways to test concurrent programs in different paradigms, such as message-passing programs in MPI. In this context, it was developed the testing tool ValiMPI, which is successful used in research projects and experimental studies. However, this tool does not offer attractive resources to support the learning of concurrent program testing. It is known that is important to produce materials to become the teach efficient and ludic and, therefore, it is important the definition of learning objects to support the teaching and learning. A learning object is a reusable artefact (or material) that can be used for teaching, learning and training. The purpose of this project is to develop of a learning object, based on ValiMPI testing tool to support the learning and training of software testing in the concurrent programs domain. (AU)
