Abstract

The problems of teaching object technology in mainstream computing undergraduate courses are currently being debated. Object technology is also featuring beneficially in joint and hybrid courses but this brings its own problems.

This paper discusses issues raised by the particular problems encountered when teaching object technology to joint honours undergraduate students for the first time.
