Sense (programming)

Sense is an educational programming environment created by The Open University in the United Kingdom.[1][2] It uses a drag-and-drop programming environment designed to teach students the fundamentals of programming languages, using different shape and colour "blocks" selected from a palette of available commands, meaning that the student needs to have no previous experience of programming nor do they need to learn a syntax. It is based on the Scratch programming language developed by the MIT Media Lab,[3] and uses .sb files[4] like Scratch but the two pieces of software cannot use each others files.[5]

The Sense programming environment is designed to work in conjunction with the SenseBoard, a specialised piece of hardware which connects to a users computer via a USB connection.[6][7] The SenseBoard has different input types such as a infrared sensor, light sensor, microphone and thermometer as well as outputs such as a motor & LEDs.[8]

Sense and the SenseBoard are primarily used as part of the OU's My Digital Life (TU100) module,[9] but is also used to a lesser degree on other modules. Sense will also be trialed in London schools in late 2012.
