Visual Logic provides a minimal-syntax introduction to essential programming concepts including variables, input, assignment, output, conditions, loops, procedures, arrays and files
Provides immediate feedback
Loops: pre-test, post-test
Nested conditions, compound conditions
Parameter passing by value, parameter passing by reference, recursion
Arrays, multimedia support, great graphics
Small (<50 employees), Medium (50 to 1000 Enterprise (>1001 employees)
Visual Logic allows the user to learn programming fundamentals in a classic manner while building solutions using intuitive graphical flowcharts. Watch as the user’s solution executes and provides immediate, accurate feedback and experience the difference that comes from learning logic and design rather than syntax in a programming class.
Visual Logic provides a minimal-syntax introduction to essential programming concepts including variables, input, assignment, output, conditions, loops, procedures, arrays and files. Based on research that shows students have more success when they start by focusing on concepts rather than syntax, Visual Logic allows instructors to present material in a clear and illustrated manner. Programming fundamentals are covered in an appropriate problem-solving context, empowering rather than overwhelming the student.
Visual Logic makes it programming seem more approachable from a beginner’s point of view. The Visual Logic approach is consistent with National Curriculum Models: IS'97 (revised as IS 2001) provides model curriculum and guidelines for undergraduate degree programs in Information Systems. IS'97 topics for the programming course (IS'97.5) includes "algorithm development; objects and event driven representations; data flow notation; programming control structures; program correctness, verification, and validation."
It is interesting to note that no specific language syntax is mentioned. This is consistent with our focus that skills, not syntax, should be the focus of an introductory programming course. Visual Logic is great for students and teachers making it the ideal learning tool. It helps the students explain and reason the algorithms which means that they will learn more effectively from this exercise.
