Abstract

Student practices are an important aspect in schooling. This article explores a possible solution of this issue for Web students in the field of computer science. Taking a DBMS implementation course as an example, the practical experiences are introduced, including courseware organization, question answering, project assignments and checking for Web Learning. The courseware is featured with: (a) self-navigation by semantic links, (b) seeing before learning, (c) provision of source code and practice-slots, (d) learning with tasks, and (e) personalized interface facilities. The special techniques inside the implementation of a personalized interface, such as user information table, behavior table, topic level tree and the page producing mechanisms are also discussed. A strategy to get the feedback of Web students is proposed, namely, by setting up a shadow class on campus to reflect the feedback of all Web learning students.
