Default Alice/Netbeans and CS1/Java labs - 08-24-2009, 07:19 PM

I am getting started with using Alice/Netbeans in CS1. I am using it for the labs, hoping that students will see a richer set of objects and methods and that they have some fun too. Some students will have seen Alice 2 in a CS0 course, but in CS1, I use NetBeans. The students won't see Alice at all, except if they choose to use Alice for the term project.

The code shown to the students is unnecessarily complex, but I have managed to put together a few labs that are much nicer than what we did in the past.

See http://horstmann.com/sjsu/cs46a/schedule.html and click on the labs. They start out boring with BlueJ, and the exciting part is at the end. If anyone wants to steal ideas, you are very welcome

Cheers,

Cay
