Development of interactive and non-interactive online resources for first year programming students.
There is a need to implement technology enhanced learning (TEL) into our current delivery as our computing students are entering college technically saavy and they spend increasing amounts of time online. Through the provision of TEL resources, we hoped to improve student engagement in the delivered materials and also improve retention in computing programmes. We planned to record the non-interactive materials during live lectures and publish the recordings shortly afterwards, in Moodle. It was envisaged that student engagement and learning in these lectures would improve, as the need to take notes will be virtually eliminated. In the event where a student misses a lecture due to illness, etc., they will be able to take the class by watching the video in their own time.
