Abstract

Minilanguages for teaching principles of programming such as Karel the Robot were once used in top computer science departments to provide a gentle introduction to programming for computer science majors. The paper builds a case for the use of minilanguages in the context of introductory programming courses for noncomputer science major. We present a study that explored the use of Karel to teach introductory programming for information science majors.
