Student Submissions in Classroom [message #820363] Wed, 14 March 2012 03:06 Go to next message

I am teaching a very beginning class of Java Programming and I am really not a programmer myself and am more or less on my own. I have only taught the basic Office courses. Nevertheless I am doing the best I can. I am brand new to Eclipse. The students have been using NetBeans some, but it seems that Eclipse has a lot of advantages, so I am moving towards it. Previously I have merely run programs from the command prompt and am not very adept with NetBeans. I am not requiring the students to use Eclipse, but am encouraging them to do so.

These may seem like very simple questions, but here they are! How should I best handle my student submissions using Eclipse? I am referring how to handle workspaces, packages, etc. Do I use one workspace for all submissions? What if submitted Java files are named the same? How do I import the files and what do I import? What problems do I need to foresee and handle? The work is submitted through a Learning Management System, called Moodle.

Any help will be greatly appreciated!

I would suggest you use a single workspace, but have your students
create (and submit) Eclipse projects. Projects are easily transported
from one workspace to another using the import/export facilities within
Eclipse.

Again, if you Projects within the workspace, there will be no file name
clash between projects.

Thank you. I am sure it will become clear as I gain experience. I just want to get started on the right foot!
