The Algorithm Visualization Research Group seeks to understand all aspects of algorithm visualization as it applies to supporting the understanding of algorithms for teaching and research. Primary activities include support for an emerging community of users and developers of Algorithm Visualizations (AVs) through the AlgoViz Wiki (algoviz.cs.vt.edu); development of exemplary AVs and the online eTextbook system OpenDSA (http://algoviz.org/OpenDSA/), and pedagogical research aimed at a deep understanding of how to make Algorithm Visualization successful in teaching and learning.
