Description/Abstract

It is difficult for a student to learn about programs and to understand the rationale 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, an animated code annotator which makes it possible to present the development of code to large groups or for self study. The educational benefits of this approach are examined.
