"Developmental" math courses give university students a chance to reestablish basic skills and knowledge needed in college algebra courses. Computer assisted learning can be an integral part of these developmental math courses. Colleges and universities implement computer-based courses in various ways (e.g., self-paced or supervised schedules; computer laboratory or online access; with or without lecture). This paper describes a computer-based developmental math course taught at Zayed University. Discussion of computer-based learning environments is presented in three sections: (1) computer use--access and social use of computers as a tool for learning; (2) individual learning--effects of the computer environment such as software interactivity and feedback; and (3) course design--optimal course structure and assessment methods. Additionally, results of a questionnaire about students' experience in the computer-based math course indicate students' positive attitudes about interacting with and doing work on their laptop computers.
