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…

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…

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…

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…

Carvalho, Elizabeth Simão – Interdisciplinary Journal of e-Skills and Lifelong Learning, 2015
Teaching object-oriented programming to students in an in-classroom environment demands well-thought didactic and pedagogical strategies in order to guarantee a good level of apprenticeship. To teach it on a completely distance learning environment (e-learning) imposes possibly other strategies, besides those that the e-learning model of Open…

Kaila, Erkki; Kurvinen, Einari; Lokkila, Erno; Laakso, Mikko-Jussi – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2016
Educational technology offers several potential benefits for programming education. Still, to facilitate the technology properly, integration into a course must be carefully designed. In this article, we present a redesign of an object-oriented university-level programming course. In the redesign, a collaborative education tool was utilized to…

Uysal, Murat Pasa – Interactive Learning Environments, 2016
Various methods and tools have been proposed to overcome the learning obstacles for Object-Oriented Programming (OOP). However, it remains difficult especially for novice learners. The problem may be not only adopting an instructional method, but also an Integrated Development Environment (IDE). Learners employ IDEs as a means to solve programming…

Al-Makhzoomy, Alaa Khalaf – ProQuest LLC, 2018
The study investigated the effect of Game Development-Based Learning (GDBL) on the ability of IT undergraduates in Jordanian universities to define the concepts of computer programming and Object-Oriented Programming (OOP) and their ability to program in C++. An instruction was designed for an eight-week-long online course to allow the…

van Zyl, Sukie; Mentz, Elsa; Havenga, Marietjie – African Journal of Research in Mathematics, Science and Technology Education, 2016
As part of curriculum changes in South Africa, an introductory programming language, Scratch, must first be taught before switching to the well-established teaching of Delphi. The nature of programming in Scratch is considerably different from that in Delphi. It was assumed that the teaching of Scratch as introductory programming language could…

Allinjawi, Arwa A.; Al-Nuaim, Hana A.; Krause, Paul – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2014
Students often face difficulties while learning object-oriented programming (OOP) concepts. Many papers have presented various assessment methods for diagnosing learning problems to improve the teaching of programming in computer science (CS) higher education. The research presented in this article illustrates that although max-min composition is…

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…

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…

Çinar, Murat; Tüzün, Hakan – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2021
This study compares the effects of object-oriented and robot programming activities on programming achievement, abstraction, problem solving, and motivation. In the study, two consecutive experimental cases were conducted to examine the consistency of findings. The research sample comprises 81 tenth-grade students undergoing vocational secondary…

Anderson, Neil; McGowan, Aidan; Hanna, Philip; Busch, John – Australian Association for Research in Education, 2015
There is a perception amongst some of those learning computer programming that the principles of object-oriented programming (where behaviour is often encapsulated across multiple class files) can be difficult to grasp, especially when taught through a traditional, didactic "talk-and-chalk" method or in a lecture-based environment. We…
