Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Alice is a freeware object-oriented educational programming language with an integrated development environment. Later versions are implemented in Java. Alice uses a drag and drop environment to create computer animations using 3D models. The software was developed first at University of Virginia, then Carnegie Mellon, by a research group led by the late Randy Pausch. In controlled studies at Ithaca College and Saint Joseph's University looking at students with no prior programming experience taking their first computer science course, the average grade rose from C to B, and retention rose from 47% to 88%. It appeared to increase interest without any drop off in basic programming tasks acquired. The next version of Storytelling Alice is known as Looking Glass, and is being developed at Washington University in St. Louis.
