Integrating algorithm animation into a learning environment
Computers & Education Volume 28, Number 4, ISSN 0360-1315 Publisher: Elsevier Ltd
Algorithm animation would seem to be a useful tool for teaching algorithms. However, previous empirical studies of using algorithm animation have produced mixed results. This paper presents an empirical study in which the subjects programmed the algorithm which they had seen animated. The results of the experiment indicate that combining the animation with the implementation of the algorithm was an effective way to teach the animation, and also produced transfer effects for general recursion problems.
