This project involves enhancements to improve learning outcomes for two core courses in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering: ELEC 271 Digital Systems and ELEC 274 Computer Architecture. These courses are also taken by students in certain program options of Math and Engineering, Engineering Physics, and Mechanical Engineering. There are three main aspects to the project: multimedia content on course concepts and practical applications, custom simulation software to model digital logic and computer system behavior as a learning aid, and new laboratory exercises for use with new equipment based on programmable logic chips. The multimedia content consists of diagrams, animations, and examples with narration to explain and illustrate concepts in digital logic and computer organization, narrated tutorials on use of computer-aided design software and digital laboratory hardware, short presentations by practicing engineers, and narrated site visits to engineering companies to show the development and use of digital systems. Each presentation is no more than five minutes in length, and is either available to students through a streaming server for independent learning or intended for display in lectures to increase student interest and engagement. These enhancements are being used in the two courses during Fall 2011 and Winter 2012.
