The concept of flipping the classroom is slowly gaining tractions at all levels of education. An ever-growing set of resources gives Information Technology (IT), Computer Science (CS), and Information Systems (IS) students unprecedented access to a significant amount of supplemental material. Videos, interactive demonstrations, and sandboxes allow instructors of programming courses to easily implement a flipped classroom model. This work summarizes the preferences and concerns of students regarding desktop-based and smartphone-based resources for CS0/CS1/CS2 education, giving guidelines for instructors to follow regarding the types of material preferred for each medium.
