 We have initial prototypes for a number of new features for OpenDSA developers.

  • Our first examples of "more visual" content. This means using slideshows as much as possible to directly relate explanatory text to something visual. See http://algoviz.org/OpenDSA/dev/OpenDSA/Books/ListViz, in particular the modules on array-based and linked lists.
  • Pretty-printed code. The code in those same modules now uses color highlighting. We are using the "pygments" package to do this.
  • Our first experiments with creating "coursenote slides" to help with lecture presentations. See:  http://algoviz.org/OpenDSA/dev/OpenDSA/Books/slides/html/InsertionSort.html#1. We are integrating our AVs and other support infrastructure with the Sphinx hieroglyph slide package.

(Note that these URLs might change if you are reading this message awhile after I make this post. But if you go to  http://algoviz.org/OpenDSA/dev/OpenDSA/Books, you should still be able to find examples of books with these features.)
