The Trend toward Online Project-Oriented Capstone Courses
Tappert, Charles C.; Stix, Allen
Computers in the Schools, v27 n3-4 p200-220 2010
At Pace University we have been using real-world student projects in capstone computing courses for about 10 years. While the courses were conducted in a traditional classroom environment during the early years, the current course has been essentially online for the last five years in order to reach a greater number of geographically scattered students. Findings indicate that appropriate team management changes can smooth the transition from co-located to distributed teams, and that peer evaluations and other remote assessment techniques make it possible to assess the work of students on distributed teams. (Contains 5 tables and 2 figures.)
