Abstract

Four years of classroom experience indicate that information technology can enhance student learning. Commercial interest in IT for training supports this enhancement. Classes taught are described. In addition, methods, hardware, software and various aspects of application and use are discussed. Although video and sound have not been used, graphics, programming with Javascript and guided exercises have been successfully applied. The use of the integrated courseware, Blackboard, has been used effectively for testing and keeping grades. Twelve tests were given to approximately 50 students over a period of eight weeks. Tests were primarily multiple choice although other forms of questions could have been used. Tests were automatically graded and scores posted with few difficulties.
