C Programming learning is a hard task. On one hand, complex concepts and principles in C programming is tedious for many novices. On the other hand, even when students know about the syntax detail, they fell still confused on how to construct a real application. To solve the problems, we presented the “student-centered” environment to facilitate programmers' knowledge and ability construction. Based on the theory of anchored instruction, the "student-centered" environment consists of anchor, an efficient Ch platform and group learning. Ch platform support efficient principle learning while group learning on anchor helps programming development. The anchor in this paper is indicated as an application of "student performance management system". In this paper, we proposed also the design of "student-centered" environment with a successful teaching implementation to support it.
