Computers are part of your world and this is a friendly introduction to programming in a collaborative community. Learn how to create computer animations, simple video games, or a video to share on the web using Alice, a friendly three-dimensional object oriented programming environment. Students drag and drop graphic tiles to create a program to control objects in their virtual world. Immediately, students see how their animation programs run and easily understand the relationship between the programming statements and the behavior of the objects. This is a fun introduction to object oriented programming concepts and develops logic and reasoning skills. This is a projects based course where students create movies and games. No previous knowledge is assumed, but some homework will be part of this course.
