AnnAnn and AnnAnn.Net : Tools for Teaching Programming
It is difficult for a student to learn about programs and to understand the rational that went into the development of the parts that led to the whole. Tools for explaining this essentially dynamic process are limited and typically static in nature. This paper presents AnnAnn.Net, an animated code annotator which makes it possible to present the development of code to large groups or for self study. The tool is designed for ease of use by both lecturers and students. The technical and educational benefits of this approach are examined.

Abstract

It is difficult for a student to learn about programs and to understand the rational that went into the development of the parts that led to the whole. Tools for explaining this essentially dynamic process are limited and typically static in nature. This paper presents AnnAnn.Net, an animated code annotator which makes it possible to present the development of code to large groups or for self study. The tool is designed for ease of use by both lecturers and students. The technical and educational benefits of this approach are examined.
