Website Usage in a Computer Science Course given in a Distance Learning Environment
The Open University of Israel (OUI) is an institution of higher learning with an open admission policy which is based solely on distance learning and self-study. The teaching methods practiced at the OUI combine traditional and web-based distance education.
This paper will elaborate on the web-based distance education which is practiced in the Computer Science (CS) department at the OUI.
We describe a typical CS course website. We present some facts and figures regarding the use of a typical CS course website, including: the average number of pages requested per day, the most popular pages in the website, some data regarding the use of the discussion group, the use of the web-based assignment submission system, website use per student and results of a survey checking student satisfaction from the course website.
