Visual Teaching Model for Introducing Programming Languages
Shehane, Ronald; Sherman, Steven
Journal of Instructional Pedagogies, v14 Mar 2014
This study examines detailed usage of online training videos that were designed to address specific course problems that were encountered in an online computer programming course. The study presents the specifics of a programming course where training videos were used to provide students with a quick start path to learning a new programming language in their coursework. The videos addressed common learning challenges with integrated development environments (IDE) to include the following areas: structure and menu options, program code and structure, compile option, execution of program code, debugging activities, file organization and use, and output concerns. The study uses an analysis of problems encountered in using new programming languages to define the subjects that the video training should address. The study is expected to provide a guide for professional teaching practice in introducing computer programming and is expected to fill a void in research literature concerning the specific aspects of programming courses that hinder computer program learning.
