iJava at BHCC
Robert Moll, UMass Amherst, Amherst, MA

iJava is a newly-developed online interactive textbook for introductory Java instruction. The text is unique in its hands-on style: users type code directly at the book, and receive instant correctness feedback. Because of its hands-on, interactive engagement style, the text has dramatically reduced failure rates in introductory classes at UMass-Amherst. An iJava-based class is suitable for the AP exam in computer science (level A). High school teachers could also arrange for college credit in Computer Science for their students upon successful completion of the course from the UMass Amherst Computer Science department. Up to 50 students will eventually be covered through this generous offer!
