Description: A few Purdue University Electrical and Computer Engineering faculty members adopted an experimental format for content delivery in a programming course. In the experimental format, lectures are recorded and delivered on-line. Students attend laboratory sessions and can obtain interactive and individualized assistance; each session teaches one programming tool, including version control, visual programming, creating graphical user interface. Four larger-scale programming assignments require design, implementation, and documentation. We have observed that students sometimes get stuck by simple programming errors (syntax or logic). Most errors are unique by individual students and difficult to generalize in a traditional lecture setting. Some students respond very positively to this approach. An on-line discussion forum is established for interaction. This hybrid format has been experimented in one sophomore and one junior course on hardware design. This paper presents the results when applying this approach to a senior-level software course. We plan to assess the learning experience of the students and compare the results with the two hardware courses many students have taken earlier.
