Abstract / Description

There is a national crisis in the teaching and learning of Programming. This is well documented in the conferences organised by the LTSN National Subject Centre for the Information and Computer Sciences. It was recognised that this problem was particularly acute in what was then the University of North London. A major project was initiated in February 2002 to tackle this problem. This involved input from the Learning Technology Research Institute [LTRI] to develop a solution to the problems, guided by relevant research findings. The project initiated substantial changes to the curriculum supported by a major new online teaching and learning environment.
