The Team in Tel-Aviv is trying a new way of coaching Python. Take a look, it looks very interesting!

Also, please don't spread it too wide yet. Show it to a friend if you want, but don't post it on facebook.

Very interesting!
we also are using a similar method in my company in order to convert java developers to scala.

Maybe you want to have a look at codecombat.com
They added support for Python, Lua, Clojure, and Io.
There are some struggles a beginner has when starting with codecombat. I think with Python-tutor as a basis you have advantages such as inspecting objects, lists and stepwise execution.

All the best,

I tried CodeCombat a day after I started working on Army of Robots. I had two big issues of it:

1) The debugger was broken, making it impossible to use in practice (at least for me) - "easily" fixable
2) No focus on learning content

I may port my content to their superior platform one day, but for now I prefer working with a system I fully control so it's easier to incorporate feedback from watching students play.
