Abstract


It is very important that the content of Algorithms and Programming course is understood by Computer Engineering students. The eBook designed in this study provides a better explanation of the flow diagrams and programming logic of the algorithms used in the introduction to programming, as well as the abstract processing steps in the computer memory and CPU during programming are animated and visualized by means of computer animations and simulations. The EPUB 3.0 based training content, developed by using animation and interactive content, is expected to create new opportunities for students at anytime and anywhere access. This work also includes the development process of an EPUB 3.0 based eBook for use on computers or mobile devices.
