Software Assisted Syllabus Preparation for Computer Networks Courses
Ercan, Tuncay; Sahin, Yasar Guneri
Online Submission, Paper presented at the International Educational Technology (IETC) Conference (7th, Nicosia, Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus, May 3-5, 2007)
Course descriptions prepared by the lecturers in the beginning of the academic year do not get any feed back from the students enrolled it. These syllabuses are not only used for the future semesters, but also used by the other lecturers without even making any changes. This causes a negative effect on the student education since many of the students come with the different backgrounds and interests for the content of the course. In addition to the changing abilities and capabilities of the students every year, there can be administrative changes in the official curriculum. In our approach, we prepared a detailed dynamic web site together with questionnaire filled in advance, that will be applied to the new students to determine their knowledge level. This will also facilitate the preparatory reviews for the lecturers to create a satisfactory education plan based on the student feedback. In this paper, a software assisted questionnaire form through a dynamically updated web page is presented for Computer Networks course. Assessing current level of the students helps to analyze and improve results in many aspects and converges the objectives of the students and the course teacher. (Contains 4 figures.)
