International Conference on Mathematics / Science Education and Technology 2000 (2000) p. 435
This paper describes a transition course in the C++ programming language aimed at transfer students and students with associate's degrees who wish to obtain an undergraduate or graduate degree in Computer Science. Because of the diversity of...
International Journal on E-Learning Vol. 9, No. 4 (October 2010) pp. 549–562
Large research networks naturally form complex communities with overlapping but not identical expertise. To map the distribution of professional competence in field of ‘technology-enhanced learning’, the lexical semantics expressed in research...
World Conference on Educational Media and Technology 2001 (2001) pp. 1898–1903
Changing demographics at many colleges has led to an increasing demand for distance education programs based on emerging network and multi-media workstation technologies. This paper describes middleware that personalizes asynchronous Internet ...
Statistics Education Research Journal Vol. 13, No. 2 (November 2014) pp. 187–201
For many years, students have been taught to visualise data by drawing graphs. Recently, there has been a growing trend to teach statistics, particularly statistical concepts, using interactive and dynamic visualisation tools. Free down-loadable...
Journal of Statistics Education Vol. 19, No. 2 (2011)
Computer simulations and animations for developing statistical concepts are often not understood by beginners. Hands-on physical simulations that morph into computer simulations are teaching approaches that can build students' concepts. In this...
