ExpertRating Online Alice Programming Course (Alice 2.0)
Coverage (6 weeks program)
Wednesday - Lesson 01
What would you say if you
are told that after only a single lesson in Alice,
you'll be able to write an animated, three-dimensional
movie? Well, that's exactly what you'll do in this first
lesson. You'll start off by learning how to get Alice
onto your computer, and then this lesson will take you
to a tour through the different areas of the Alice
interface. You'll finish by writing the classic "Hello
World!" program, only this time as an animated
three-dimensional Alice world!
Friday - Lesson 02
Now that you've gotten to
know Alice, lesson 2 will show you how to design and
develop your three-dimensional world. This lesson will
talk about moving, turning, and rotating objects in
three-dimensional space. You'll also learn a little bit
about the Alice object's built-in methods that allow the
objects to move, turn, rotate, and many other things
while the world plays.
Wednesday - Lesson 03
It's now time to let your
imagination run wild with Alice. In this lesson, you'll
get a chance to write some instructions for your objects
to help them move and interact with one another.
Specifically, this lesson will show you how to get a
couple of Eskimos to go for a walk around their igloo.
Does this sound challenging? Well, after you work
through this lesson, you'll see just how easy Alice
Friday - Lesson 04
So far, all of your worlds
have executed your program statements, one after
another. That's fine, but to make things more
interesting, there are times when you'll prefer for one
set of statements to run under one condition, while
another set runs under a different condition. In
programming terms, this is the decision structure, and
that's what Lesson 4 is all about. This lesson will also
talk about how to get user input, which will help you
make your worlds interactive and create a more personal
experience for your users.
Wednesday - Lesson 05-
Programming structures like
the If statement are great. But Alice is all about
having fun. This lesson will take a break from
structures and work on precisely placing
three-dimensional objects. This lesson will also look at
some interesting object properties that can make your
programming life so much easier. Finally, the lesson
will explore how to make certain parts of the objects
move to add a little more realism to your worlds.
Friday - Lesson 06
Now this lesson will turn
back to programming structures and talk about the
repetition structure. This is a powerful tool because
now, instead of writing the same instructions over and
over, you can just place a looping structure in your
code to get the same results. This lesson will also
explore one of the really fun parts of programming—the
generation of random numbers. You can use this to make
your objects move at random, or you could even create
three-dimensional games of chance.
Wednesday - Lesson 07
In this lesson, you’ll do a
little space exploration while learning about keyboard
events. This lesson will start with the space template
and some out-of-this-world objects, and then use the
keyboard events to maneuver a spacecraft around the
lunar surface while trying to discover some alien life
forms. You'll also learn a little about user-defined
methods and write one of your own. This will help you to
organize the code in your program and make it easier to
write at the same time!
Friday - Lesson 08
Now that you've learned how
to write your own methods, it's time to learn about
writing your own functions. What's the difference? Well,
your functions will return some value. That means that
in this lesson, you'll not only learn how to write code
to perform numeric calculations, but you'll also learn
how to write code to answer some questions about your
objects. Again, this is going to help to make your world
code better organized and easier to read.
Wednesday - Lesson 09
At this point, you've gone
into a lot of programming structure, so you'll take a
break in Lesson 9 and put these concepts into action
with a flight simulator. It may be a little daunting to
think about writing a whole three-dimensional flight
simulator in a single lesson, but it's true. And with
Alice, it isn't too hard. After all, what is a flight
simulator? You'll just need a loop to move the plane
forward while giving the user the ability to turn the
plane in a different direction. Add in a
three-dimensional hedge maze, and you're ready to do
Friday - Lesson 10
Alice will give you access
to a lot of different three-dimensional objects, but
what about images that you've made? While creating
three-dimensional objects is way beyond the scope of
this course, it's really easy to add two-dimensional
images, or even to use these images as the texture of
your objects. In this lesson, you'll not only learn how
to work with two-dimensional image files, but also how
to import and use sound files. Here's your chance to add
a soundtrack to your three-dimensional world!
Wednesday - Lesson 11
So far, you've only worked
with single objects. This is interesting enough, but
what if you want a group of objects to work together?
What if you want the Rocket’s to do a little dance? Or
maybe you want to create a synchronized swimming
routine? This could mean a lot of coding if you're using
single objects. But fortunately, Alice allows you to use
the List structure to help animate groups of objects
with far less trouble. By the end of this lesson, you'll
be able to give your users a nicely synchronized dance
routine with only a minimal amount of effort.
Friday - Lesson 12
