EDAPPLETS: A WEB TOOL FOR TEACHING DATA STRUCTURES AND ALGORITHMIC TECHNIQUES

F. Almeida, V. Blanco, J. Regalado, A. Santos

Abstract

We present in this work the EDApplets tool, a Web–based application oriented to the teaching / learning of programming and algorithmics in engineering. Based on Java Applets technology, it provides the animation and visualization by traces of algorithms and data structures. The tool covers various aspects in teaching which may be directed to different kinds of learning styles: Active / thoughtful, methodical / intuitive, visual / oral, etc. Also, we present the methodological aspects that should be considered to put in place the tool in the classroom as a supplement to learning.
