The steady evolution in algorithm visualization increasingly favors student
interaction with the visualization over the instructor's display of the visualization.
Consequently, ease of delivery, support for multiple platforms, ease of use, interactivity, and
protection of the source are important qualities of an algorithm visualization. Java applets and
QuickTime movies represent two ways of delivering algorithm visualizations to students via
the internet which have some or all of these qualities. Visualizations of algorithms from
computational geometry will be presented as illustrations of these techniques.
