Internet-Based Homework Can Provide Significantly Enhanced College-Level Student Performance: A Case Study

      UNC Charlotte

Abstract (up to 200 words):
The application of computing technology has provided many opportunities for educators as they seek to engage students into the educational enterprise. It is well understood that the success of students is predicated by their personal involvment and engagement in the learning process. Emerging technologies have given educators many choices, enabling them to bring their subjects to students in many engaging ways. This presentation will describe the impact of replacing hand-written and hand-graded homework with a relatively easy to implement Internet-based interactive format. After three years of implementation in a set of upper-division electronics courses at UNC Charlotte, student retention and grades have improved dramatically. The organization of the course, the platform used, and the results obtained will be presented. Participants will be able to query the suitability of such a format to their own courses.
