The EduVisor software visualization component is a new pedagogical tool specifically developed to address some wide-spread problems in teaching object-oriented technology to novice programmers. The visualization tool is integrated in a world-class IDE, and shows the students the structure of their own creations at runtime. EduVisor is based on a solid grounding in literature and over 25 years of combined experience in teaching a CS1 course. With this component we have set the goal of helping our students progress faster through the most difficult initial stages of programming.
