why can't you just implement an IDE like Visual Studio instead of just coding in the console?

Hi there, So far I have noticed that most of the code along part is taking place using your integrated console. I am just wondering why this can't be something like modern IDE, which will be much easier for students to understand what is going on. For example in this course, when you are trying to explain jagged arrays, it is such a nightmare for me to see which line is which when you mixed 100 jagged arrays with all the code in the console.
