The E-Learning Center on “Introduction to Computer” Course Chieh-Sen Huang, Department of Applied Mathematics, National Sun Yat-sen University Introduction : 6. Instant messaging and live chat. Use MSN Messenger or Skype (an internet phone) to communicate with students and give offer hours online. E-learning is becoming a dominant delivery method in academic and industrial learning settings. Many universities and organizations are recognizing the potential of e-learning to bring learning closer to learners. Since E-learning is mostly associated with activities involving computers and interactive networks simultaneously, we implement the concepts of E-learning by building an E-learning center on the “Introduction to Computer” course which serves a very good example for the course itself. Contents: 1. Syllabus: Provide complete day-to-day progress. 2. Course documents and presentations: 20 units of power pointer presentations and over 150 c++ codes are provided. 7. Online grade center: Provide access to students’ grades securely and instantly. 3. Discussion forums: Online discussion forums are built. 8. Online tutorials: Use Camtasia to create online tutorials which contains solutions to the home works and the technical procedures. 4. Interactive resources, quizzes, tests. Students can familiarize themselves with the exams. 9. Online forms and surveys : To Reflect learning activities we create online surveys. 5. Streaming media and presentations: We create and delivery streaming media and presentations of the courses. Conclusions: The students are mostly in their freshmen year, most of them have very limited experiences on computers. However, they adapt to this idea very quickly. They especially have fun with “instant messaging” such as using MSN to chat with the instructor. They are also eager to fill out the surveys every month. We receive a great lot more feedbacks through internet than the conventional face-to-face ways. We find the “E- Learning Center” can provide not only an e-learning environment but also better interactions with the learners.
