Abstract

Experience has shown that one of the biggest difficulties that students find while learning programming languages is the understanding of its abstract concepts, and this difficulty translates into a lack of motivation for learning. We propose the use of a collaborative virtual environment to allow students to program within the context of a business-like professional programming environment, akin to that found in a software house, in order to make abstract concepts and requirements more concrete and therefore increase the learning effectiveness and students' motivation. This paper includes a reflection about the features that would be required of such a virtual environment in order to improve the learning experience for students of computer programming.
