Alice

Alice is a teaching tool for introductory computing. It uses 3D graphics and a drag-and-drop interface to facilitate a more engaging, less frustrating first programming experience.

Alice, version 2.2, runs on Microsoft Windows and Mac OS X. The older Alice version 2.0 is available for Linux platforms.

A variant of Alice 2.0 called Storytelling Alice was created by Caitlin Kelleher for her PhD dissertation. It includes 3 main differences:

  • High-level animations that enable users to program social interactions between characters.
  • A story-based tutorial that introduces users to programming through building a story.
  • A gallery of 3D characters and scenery with custom animations designed to spark story ideas.
System Requirements: 

Operating systems: Windows, Mac OS X, Linux
Platforms: 32 and 64 bit support
Dependencies: Latest versions require Java (JRE)
Hardware Recommendations: 512MB of RAM (1GB recommended), 250MB of free disk space

Short Description:

I created a website for the installation of storytelling Alice for Windows. When I tried to install the program the process wasn't as easy as I thought they should be. I made a webpage for installation instructions as well as tutorials.
