Shen, Ruimin; Wang, Minjuan; Gao, Wanping; Novak, D.; Tang, Lin – IEEE Transactions on Education, 2009
The computer science classes in China's institutions of higher education often have large numbers of students. In addition, many institutions offer "blended" classes that include both on-campus and online students. These large blended classrooms have long suffered from a lack of interactivity. Many online classes simply provide recorded…

Skinner, I.; Mort, P. – IEEE Transactions on Education, 2009
This paper reports the integration of supplementary training in academic literacy, for those without the assumed entry standard, into a standard electrical engineering program without compromising any other educational objectives. All students who commenced an engineering degree were tested as part of their first session's assessment activities.…

Jiau, H. C.; Chen, J. C.; Ssu, Kuo-Feng – IEEE Transactions on Education, 2009
Game-based assignments typically form an integral component of computer programming courses. The effectiveness of the assignments in motivating students to carry out repetitive programming tasks is somewhat limited since their outcomes are invariably limited to a simple win or loss scenario. Accordingly, this paper develops a simulation…

Hamam, H.; Loucif, S. – IEEE Transactions on Education, 2009
Educational institutions pay careful attention to the design of program curricula, which represent a framework to meet institutional goals and missions. Of course, the success of any institution depends highly on the quality of its program curriculum. The development of such a curriculum and, more importantly, the evaluation of its quality are…

Jernigan, S. R.; Fahmy, Y.; Buckner, G. D. – IEEE Transactions on Education, 2009
This paper details a successful and inexpensive implementation of a remote laboratory into a distance control systems course using readily available hardware and software. The physical experiment consists of a beach ball and a dc blower; the control objective is to make the height of the aerodynamically levitated beach ball track a reference…

Garcia, M. I.; Rodriguez, S.; Perez, A.; Garcia, A. – IEEE Transactions on Education, 2009
Studying fundamental Computer Architecture and Organization topics requires a significant amount of practical work if students are to acquire a good grasp of the theoretical concepts presented in classroom lectures or textbooks. The use of simulators is commonly adopted in order to reach this objective. However, as most of the available…

Kwon, Homin; Berisha, V.; Atti, V.; Spanias, A. – IEEE Transactions on Education, 2009
Distributed wireless sensor networks (WSNs) are being proposed for various applications including defense, security, and smart stages. The introduction of hardware wireless sensors in a signal processing education setting can serve as a paradigm for data acquisition, collaborative signal processing, or simply as a platform for obtaining,…

Xenos, M.; Avouris, N.; Stavrinoudis, D.; Margaritis, M. – IEEE Transactions on Education, 2009
This paper presents the main findings, and lessons learned, from introducing a synchronous peer collaboration activity in a distance learning computer science course. Synergo, a software that supports such an approach, was used in this activity. The organizational, technical, and academic challenges of introducing this activity in the course are…

Tutunji, T. A.; Saleem, A.; Rabbo, S. A. – IEEE Transactions on Education, 2009
Mechatronics is a branch of engineering whose final product should involve mechanical movements controlled by smart electronics. The design and implementation of functional prototypes are an essential learning experience for the students in this field. In this paper, the guidelines for a successful mechatronics project class are presented,…

Weyten, L.; Rombouts, P.; De Maeyer, J. – IEEE Transactions on Education, 2009
A Web-based system for training electric circuit analysis is presented in this paper. It is centered on symbolic analysis techniques and it not only verifies the student's final answer, but it also tracks and coaches him/her through all steps of his/her reasoning path. The system mimics homework assignments, enhanced by immediate personalized…
