Learning introductory programming languages at universities has become significantly more challenging for beginners. Although, educational content is freely available on the web, students feel overwhelmed by the amount of unstructured content. Various systems have been introduced to increase student interest using smartphones and multimodal learning content but the small screens of these devices could hinder learning efficiency. The television or TV is one of the better candidates to replace the smartphone as a learning device due to its larger screen size and is commonly available at home. The potential of using lecture notes, a television and a computer screen concurrently to realize the concept of learning-by-doing can engage beginners to become more active in mastering introductory programming languages outside the classroom. An inexpensive quick response multimodal learning system is proposed using Raspberry Pi to generate interest and make programming concepts easier to comprehend. Through the proposed tap-to-learn interaction paradigm that uses quick response codes to bind together programming concepts and hands-on coding, the process of acquiring organized learning content becomes more convenient, faster and easier while encouraging students to learn independently at home.
