Teaching the basics of programming it is accomplished in the first year of the Degree in Telecommunication Technology Engineering (DTTE), particularly in the subjects Fundamentals of Programming I (FPI) and Fundamentals of Programming II (FPII). These concepts are used in other subjects such as programming services or operating system services. The basic concepts related to Java object-oriented programming are taught in FPII.

In the new context of the European Higher Education Area (EHEA), laboratories are very important for the transmission of knowledge to students. Also the Project Based Learning (PBL) plays an essential role, because knowledge taught to students through lectures and practices are strengthened by the development of a project

Learning is an incremental process where knowledge of a subject should be based on already acquired knowledge. On the one hand, it is advisable to adjust the teaching content, not to overlap them, and on the other hand, is also advised not take significantly higher incremental jumps, making a connection between subjects. It is therefore recommended that the basic content can be accessed easily and that they are concise. Thus it is essential to have a fundamental content reference guide.

Developing a teaching resource that summarizes and encompasses the concepts of OOP (Object-oriented programming) and JAVA taught in FPII is necessary to facilitate the work of students in subjects they need these basics. This teaching resource can be used as reference subjects in higher grades. This resource helps students to remember the basics quickly and accurately. A student can always review full notes of the subject for specific questions. This reference is available for reference from the subjects in which they are needed.

The purpose of this paper is to show the results of the development of a learning resource with the basic contents of the subject of FPII of DTTE concerning object-oriented programming and Java. This resource facilitates coordination of subjects that reuse the material taught in the first course.
Furthermore, this resource is useful for senior students, as a reference of previous concepts for the understanding and development of the practices of these subjects based on Java.
