I saw a few weeks ago in the chat a learning puzzle. The idea behind learning puzzles is really great, so I suggest dedicating a section for it in the puzzles page.
Let me explain myself. A learning puzzle is a puzzle that explains to you
a concept and then you can practice the concept by solving the puzzle.
The puzzle was created by @loick1 and his friend, workers in CG. They made two very nice puzzles, one is about Bubble sort with a video explaining the concept and the other is about Path finding with a very good explanation.
In March 2015 @loick1 has suggested the idea of learning puzzles in the Forum, everyone liked it, but to my disappointment it never became official.
I believe and think that puzzles like those are very helpful and useful. They teach a concept in an easy way and then you can implement it right away in the puzzle and understand it better.
I have a few more related suggestions:
- Once there is such a section, allow people to contribute themselves learning puzzles.
- Today, a click on the ‘learning opportunities’ tags of a puzzle (any regular puzzle) you get to a place that shows you all the associated puzzles with the same learning tag as well as links to external resources. I suggest to add there links to relevant learning puzzles that teaches the specific concept.
Waiting to hear your opinion
