Recently developed software packages allow pre-college students to make elementary virtual worlds. The best known of these is Alice, developed at Carnegie-Mellon under the leadership of Randy Pausch. In this course, we will compare a few programs for developing elementary virtual worlds and see if this really is an effective way to teach K12 students about the real world.

This course is a Liberal Studies Introductory Colloquim for Transfer Students and, consequently, satisfies both a Writing Intensive and Information Literacy Intensive.


CSCI 379 is taught by J. Dean Brock and meets Monday and Wednesday from 2:45 PM to 4:00 PM in Carmichael 133.
