Making Plans

I’ll be teaching an assembler class again in spring semester at Columbus State University, so lately I’ve been thinking about what I want to do with the class.  I’ll be teaching IBM mainframe assembler again, and I’m planning to record Camtasia lectures for the entire class.  I’ll make them available on the VisibleZ website as they become available.  Most of the lectures will appear in December during the winter break.  The rest will appear as the semester progresses.  I have a few lectures already recorded and available.  My plans are to make the lectures shorter, perhaps 15 minutes or less, to promote their use. I’ll also be using VisibleZ, which has completely changed my approach to teaching assembler.  Seeing is believing, so if you haven’t tried it, now is the time.  I can’t think of a better way to get up to speed on IBM assembler concepts than to load an object program into VisibleZ and watch it execute one instruction at a time.
