First part of the “Introduction to Programming” has been made available at the Edu site, http://edu.netbeans.org/. This is a course created by a team of Java instructors in the Philippines. The course outline, teacher's manual, student's manual, and all related NetBeans projects are available for you to use in the classroom.
The course is aimed at complete newbies, not only newbies to Java, but newbies to programming. If you have a group of students who fall into that category, hop over to http://edu.netbeans.org/ and download the courseware and use them as much or as little as you like.
