  3. 3. 3 Oracle Confidential What is Alice? • Alice is an innovative 3D programming environment that makes it easy to create an animation for telling a story. • Alice is a freely available teaching tool designed to be a student's first exposure to object-oriented programming. • It allows students to learn fundamental programming concepts in the context of creating animated movies.
  4. 4. 4 Oracle Confidential Why use Alice? • In Alice's interactive interface, students drag and drop graphic tiles to create a program, where the instructions correspond to standard statements in a production oriented programming language, such as Java, C++, and C#. • Alice allows students to immediately see how their animation programs run, enabling them to easily understand the relationship between the programming statements and the behaviour of objects in their animation. • By manipulating the objects in their virtual world, students gain experience with all the programming constructs typically taught in an introductory programming course.
