Abstract

This paper focuses on the programming environment developed by CMU and distributed (freely) as the Alice 3D Authoring System. An overview of the difficulty in retaining computer science students due to the high initial learning curve associated with computer programming is given. The major design issues and components of Alice are discussed, as well as their applications to learning the object-oriented programming paradigm. In conclusion, several shortcomings of the Alice system are explored with respect to the inherent problems of teaching object-oriented design and programming.
