Student Camp Week July 14-18 Worlds: Instructions
The Alice worlds built in the Adventures in Alice Camp Week 2
are available here for downloading.
Alice is available for FREE from
www.alice.org . Download the Alice 2.0 version to view student
worlds. This is the version
we used at the camp which is pretty stable. You must start Alice first,
and then load an Alice world (a .a2w file).
Alice 2.2 is available in Beta Version, but was very buggy, so we did not
use it at the camp. It may be available in the fall. With Alice 2.2 you
will be able to make a movie of your world and load it to YouTube.
Alice 3.0 will be out sometime in 2009 and will include the Sims
How to Download Student Worlds
Student worlds have been put on the web page in two ways.
- Zip file of all worlds for a student
In this case, download the file, unzip it and you will have a folder of
all their Alice worlds. This file will likely be very large and take a
while to download, but this is probably the easiest way to get all the
worlds from one student.
- Each individual Alice world
In this case, click on the Alice world and save it on your computer.
An Alice world has the .a2w extension, for example: cowWorld.a2w
It is likely that your computer does not know about Alice worlds and
ignores the .a2w extension and even changes the name of the file to
IF THIS HAPPEN, DO NOT EXTRACT files from it, but rather RENAME the file
to cowWorld.a2w. If you cannot rename it, you can still view it inside
if when loading it you select to browse ALL FILE types, and not just .a2w
files. Then you can load cowWorld.zip.
