Today, in my COSC362: Object-oriented Analysis & Design class, I gave a presentation on encapsulation. Actually, the assignment was to critique a flawed system design given to us by the professor.  It was a group project, but my section focused on encapsulation. Below are my relevent slides: 

At the end of my talk, I took a quick survey of the room and noticed that most of my peers had funny looks on their faces. Also, throughout the rest of the presentations, I noticed nobody made reference to Interfaces at all.

Was my talk over their heads? Was I wrong to relate Interfaces to the concept of encapsulation? Did the code scared them?

What level of programming were you teaching? What you had was fine. I wouldn't worry about your peers because it looks like your learning OOP which is why your there, right? Good luck.

It's not actually a programming course. Its an Object-oriented Anaysis/Design course. But because I'm a coder at heart, I couldn't resist the urge to include some code snippets in my presentation. I think it would be very hard to explain Interfaces without any code.

Its a level-300 computer science course. Besides the handful of admin students, you would expect the rest to be able to understand the somewhat trivial code.

I think that everyone in the room just had better places to be.
