Teaching of initial programming is a significant pedagogical problem for computing departments. It is shown that by understanding the changing characteristics of computing students helps to identify their learning approaches and requirements. These findings are used to explain the rationale for the development and use of a virtual learning environment to support the learning of introductory programming.
