Abstract

This paper describes how the World Wide Web (WWW)-delivered visual explanations of programming constructs have been developed and used to supplement the conventional instructional methods and materials traditionally employed in introductory programming courses. The explanations are constructed using inexpensive commercial software that supports the use of animation, graphics, color, and narrative to help students visualize a wide range of concepts and relationships. Initial student feedback suggests WWW-delivered visual explanations appear to be an effective means of addressing the individual learning needs of novice programmers.
