Abstract: webAD, standing for web-based visualization of algorithms and data structures, is an e-learning platform. It utilizes the experiences of previous analog projects, such as VADer or NetLuke and extracts the minimalistic ideology: no installation or configuration effort, multi device support, clear structure of didactical content and simple extensibility for developers. Compared to other visualization tools for algorithms and data structures webAD puts a high value on a flexible tape-recorder and implements it with a unique approach. Based purely on HTML5 and JavaScript with the smallest usage of external libraries it is designed according to the Model-View-Controller architectural pattern and works as a fat client. The usability of the tool is examined by performed analysis.
