Abstract

Object-oriented systems development is widely used when designing and creating applications fore-commerce systems. Therefore, business students studying an information systems major are required to complete units that provide a grounding in the fundamental object-oriented principles and development methods. This paper discusses the issues that must be considered when designing and delivering an object-oriented programming unit to business students. The author also suggests recommendations that address the issues raised, using a unit currently be delivered as a case example. In general terms, the recommendations focus on the need to provide resources that allow the students to concentrate on the fundamental object-oriented concepts while programming (avoiding complex syntax and features of the programming language that are not relevant) and requiring students to problem solve in the business domain.
