GETTING ECLIPSE INTO THE CLASSROOM

Dwight Deugo

Abstract

In this paper, I describe an approach to integrating Eclipse into the classroom for the purpose of having students develop assignments using the Java, Scheme and Prolog programming languages. The approach attempts to overcome three problems. 1) Students wanting to learn about Eclipse have no idea where to start. 2) Educators wanting to teach Eclipse do not have available the breadth of material required to introduce students to it. 3) In most institutions, there is no room in the existing curricula to dedicate courses for explicitly teaching Eclipse.
