The use of MUPPETS in an introductory java programming course
“The Multi-User Programming Pedagogy for Enhancing Traditional Study” (MUPPETS) system has been under development at RIT for the last three years. This multi-user environment is designed to allow students to develop visible 3D objects in Java within a game-world environment with minimal knowledge of graphics programming. Students can interact with these objects through an interface built into the system. (Technical aspects of the MUPPETS system were previously published by the authors at CITC4) [1]. In testing the usefulness of MUPPETS as a teaching tool, we have developed a series of course modules that use the environment as its programming environment. The existing “Programming for Information Technology III” course is the ideal place to perform an initial test of this nature, as students have some base familiarity with the Java language but have not yet completed their undergraduate programming core. Students in this course have a final group programming project that we in...
