Computational Intelligence (CI) techniques have been used in many different knowledge areas in order to rationalize costs and potentially increase profits. Nevertheless, using this kind of technique is not straight forward, especially in the case of sectors whose practitioners do not have enough programming knowledge. In order to facilitate the teaching, learning, research and usage of CI techniques, we have developed a tool called Athena. In this paper, we report the results of an experiment that we conducted to identify to which extent Athena improves the performance of students during the learning of IC techniques. The results indicate that our tool can be very useful for educators involved in teaching IC.
