Yildirim, Osman; Ozdener, Nesrin – International Journal of Technology in Education and Science, 2021
Computer games are effective instructional tools used in programming courses to increase students' motivation and engagement. This participatory action research aims to redesign the Object-Oriented Programming course in which the first author is both the instructor and researcher to make it more effective and efficient. In the first step of the…

Sunday, Kissinger; Wong, Seng Yue; Samson, Balogun Oluwafemi; Sanusi, Ismaila Temitayo – Education and Information Technologies, 2022
Learning object oriented programming (OOP) has been a daunting and challenging task for students across tertiary institutions in Nigeria. Various literatures have suggested the use of technology as a way to improve students' understanding of the subject. In this study, the overall aim is to investigate the effect of Imikode- a virtual reality (VR)…

Kanaki, Kalliopi; Kalogiannakis, Michail – Education and Information Technologies, 2018
Objects are everywhere. People deal with them from the beginning of their lives. From babyhood, they start to recognise them and, progressively, learn to define their attributes and designate the actions related to them. Although the basis of object-oriented programming is translating real-world objects into the object-oriented code, learning…

Allen, Oliver; Downs, Xavier; Varoy, Elliot; Luxton-Reilly, Andrew; Giacaman, Nasser – IEEE Transactions on Learning Technologies, 2022
Object-oriented programming (OOP) is not only an integral part of computing degrees but also a requirement in non-computing majors such as engineering. Understanding OOP concepts can be difficult for novice programmers, and often leads to the development of misconceptions. This is exacerbated when the discipline requires students to learn a…

Ragonis, Noa; Shmallo, Ronit – Informatics in Education, 2022
Object-oriented programming distinguishes between instance attributes and methods and class attributes and methods, annotated by the "static" modifier. Novices encounter difficulty understanding the means and implications of "static" attributes and methods. The paper has two outcomes: (a) a detailed classification of aspects of…

Lian, Victor; Varoy, Elliot; Giacaman, Nasser – IEEE Transactions on Learning Technologies, 2022
Object-oriented programming (OOP) is a widely used programming paradigm in modern software industry. This makes it an essential skill for students in many disciplines to learn. However, OOP is known to be challenging to learn and teach due to its abstract nature. Studies have shown that students often face difficulties and develop misconceptions…

Shmallo, Ronit; Ragonis, Noa – Education and Information Technologies, 2021
The paper presents research that aims to expose students' understanding of the "this" reference in object-oriented programming. The study was conducted with high school students (N = 86) and college engineering students (N = 77). Conceptualization of "this" reflects an understanding of objects in general and involves aspects of…

Gutiérrez, Luz E.; Guerrero, Carlos A.; López-Ospina, Héctor A. – Education and Information Technologies, 2022
This study describes the most relevant problems and solutions found in the literature on teaching and learning of object-oriented programming (OOP). The identification of the problem was based on tertiary studies from the IEEE Xplore, Scopus, ACM Digital Library and Science Direct repositories. The problems and solutions identified were ranked…

Xinogalos, Stelios; Satratzemi, Maya; Chatzigeorgiou, Alexander; Tsompanoudi, Despina – Journal of Educational Computing Research, 2019
Pair Programming has been shown to increase productivity and code quality not only in professional software development but also in the context of programming education. The provision of broadband Internet access gave rise to Distributed Pair Programming (DPP) enabling two programmers to collaborate remotely. To gain insight into the benefits of…

Djelil, Fahima; Albouy-Kissi, Adelaide; Albouy-Kissi, Benjamin; Sanchez, Eric; Lavest, Jean-Marc – Journal of Interactive Learning Research, 2016
Object-Oriented paradigm is a common paradigm for introductory programming courses. However, many teachers find that transitioning to teaching this paradigm is a difficult task. To overcome this complexity, many experienced teachers use microworlds to give beginner students an intuitive and rapid understanding of fundamental abstract concepts of…

Abuaiadah, Diab; Burrell, Chris; Bosu, Michael; Joyce, Sue; Hajmoosaei, Abdolreza – New Zealand Journal of Educational Studies, 2019
This study follows well-published educational criteria for assessing the quality of learning outcomes and investigates how these criteria are applied to descriptors of courses that include object oriented programming concepts. These quality criteria aim to ensure that learning outcomes are specific, measurable, attainable, relevant and…

Tsiotras, Dimitrios; Xinogalos, Stelios – Informatics in Education, 2021
There has been an active movement towards fun learning, using games in education. This article introduces the text-based serious game "Rise of the Java Emperor" that aims to support students in learning basic object-oriented programming concepts using Java. Information concerning the analysis, the design and the pilot evaluation of the…

Zhu, Xiao-dong – International Education Studies, 2012
The evolution of object-oriented programming languages includes update of their own versions, update of development environments, and reform of new languages upon old languages. In this paper, the evolution analysis of object-oriented programming languages is presented in term of the characters and development. The notion of adaptive teaching upon…

Förster, Anna; Dede, Jens; Udugama, Asanga; Förster, Alexander; Helms, Daniel; Kniefs, Louis; Müller, Julia; Gerken, Lars; Richter, Franziska; Kulmann, Jan – Education Sciences, 2021
In this paper, we present our experience with redesigning an introductory computer science course for (electrical) engineers with blended learning concepts. It is a large mandatory course with eight credit points over the course of two semesters, where first year electrical engineers learn how to program with Arduino, C and Python. Additionally,…

Xinogalos, Stelios – Education and Information Technologies, 2016
Designing and deploying programming courses is undoubtedly a challenging task. In this paper, an attempt to analyze important aspects of a sequence of two courses on imperative-procedural and object-oriented programming in a non-CS majors Department is made. This analysis is based on a questionnaire filled in by fifty students in a voluntary…
