Studies have shown that program visualization(PV) is effective for student programming exercise or self-study support. However, very few instructors actively use PV tools for programming lectures. This article discussed the impediments the instructors meet during combining PV tools into lecture classrooms and proposed a C programming classroom instruction support tool based on program visualization — PROVIT-CI (PROgram VIsualization Tool for Classroom Instruction). PROVIT-CI has been consecutively and actively used by the instructors in author's university to enhance their lectures since 2015. The evaluation of application results in an introductory C programming course shows that PROVIT-CI is effective and helpful for instructors classroom use.
