Teaching of computer programming by electronic mail has been held in Lithuanian schools since 1992. School students of upper grades (8–12) took part in the experiments. The experiments showed that students cope better with first stages of programming (specifying the problem, etc.) than with the last ones (programming, debugging). The analysis of programming products (made by their peers) by students themselves may be expected to be an important component of learning and teaching.
The outcome of three year work is summarized and discussed. Observations and conclusions are presented. Distance teaching perspectives are discussed.
