Integrating a Real Life Engineering Case Study into the Syllabus of an Undergraduate Network Programming using HTML and Java course
AbstractThe booming Information Technology (IT) business has pushed universities to create IT academic programs (minor or major). The Computer Science and Software Engineering Department of Auburn University have been among the first ones to create an Information Technology Minor. The COMP2000 Network Programming with HTML and Java course has become an important component of this minor. We introduced a multimedia case study, Chick-fil-A, in this course as part of a lab assignment during Spring 2003. We describe the elements of the course, how the case study was included in the class, and evaluation results. The results show that the introduction of the multimedia case study in computer science courses is worthwhile and beneficial.
