It is an interesting tool to see how the algorithms work, but there should be a link to some material to help students to review some important concepts about sort algorithms.

I very much enjoyed using these animations to display the different algorithms.
It would be very benificial to non-computer types to grasp the concept of the
different types of sorting algorithms.

Technical Remarks:

To enhance the graphics, it would be nice to see the actual code being stepped
