Abstract


In the courses of information technology area, there are many difficulties in the teaching and learning process of Algorithms and Data Structures. Learning objects (LOs) as images, videos, animations and other digital resources have such characteristics that can benefit the educational process of these disciplines. Not only presential classes but also new formats of online courses may be favored by the use of LOs in virtual learning environments. In this context, this article aims to present the results from the development of LOs for simulating operations with linear list, stack and queue, stored in a Website built as a repository, as well as its evaluation by students of Computing Engineering and Software Engineering. This issue is also discussed in the article the technologies used in the development of this educational tool.

Keywords
