In this paper, we present possibilities for creating and using purposefully designed interactive applications in order to understand the problematic parts taught within the course "Algorithms and Data Structures I" and the acquisition of the required IT skills of students in informatics. The reason is steadily decreasing percentage of students, despite the measures that have been taken and proved to be effective. These were specified in details by the author in another paper (Jurinová, 2016). However, their effectiveness is still not satisfactory, and therefore we continue to support teaching methods and forms of education by developing other customized interactive applications.
