A Numerical Methods Course Based on B-Learning: Integrated Learning Design and Follow Up
Cepeda, Francisco Javier Delgado
International Journal of Mobile and Blended Learning, v5 n1 p39-57 2013
Information and communication technologies advance continuously, providing a real support for learning processes. Learning technologies address areas which previously have corresponded to face-to-face learning, while mobile resources are having a growing impact on education. Numerical Methods is a discipline and profession based on technology. In its education, technology has been included in the curricula as a basic tool given the complexity of applied mathematical problems. This paper presents a blended learning design for a Numerical Methods course for engineers, combining class, online and mobile activities to strengthen and to develop different abilities related to it. Mobile activities have been incorporated into the latest design, including an e-book with online resources prepared specially for this course. The follow up for the last three years shows a meaningful impact due to growing use of technology compared with previous practice.
