Default Alice 3.0 - 04-16-2010, 06:47 PM

i love how they made Alice look a lot better in joint movement everything is so much smoother but trying to create a game or a video is incredibly complicated with it they really should work on it more.

I wouldn't expect a tutorial for a long time. Months if not years.

Alice 3 is currently in the "beta" stage of software development. Features can and probably will change. Writing a tutorial takes a lot of time and effort, and is generally one of the last things done for a piece of software. You don't want to have to re-do it later.

If you're not comfortable using beta software, don't have an experienced teacher supporting you, and/or not reasonably fluent in Java or another OO language, Alice 3 probably isn't for you (yet). I don't mean this as a slight, just a fact.

Well put. The key is patience (which is really easy, if you have so much stuff to do you don't have time to notice that time is going by).

Cool Summer Alice confrences have.... - 05-19-2010, 12:58 PM

a 3 day session dedicated 3.0. This makes me wonder if they are ready to push a finalized version? This is a training conference for educators, so I can not see them teaching us HOW to teach Alice 3.0 if it is not yet stable enough to use in a classroom enviroment. I have downloaded 3.0 for my own use, and while I love some aspects of it, I cringe at making the crossover with my students until something more stable with supporting materials is created. Any thoughts? Has anyone heard ANYTHING about a non-beta 3.0?

I haven't, but I know they're still working on it (though development is going slowly).

My guess is that the conference will involve using the more stable features of the beta version in education. But I could be wrong.
