Use of a MOOC Platform to Blend a Linear Circuits Course for Non-Majors

Date: 
June, 2014
Abstract: 

This paper describes a project where a MOOC (Massive Open Online Course) was developed in order to blend a Circuits and Electronics course taught to non-majors at Georgia Tech. The MOOC platform contains videos of all the course lectures, online homework, and quizzes. Over 400 students take this course on campus each term. Since these students were spread over eight to nine sections, consistency of coverage and of grading was a major motivation for inverting this course. Another major motivation for the course inversion was to be able to introduce hands-on activities into the classroom so that students can get small-scale laboratory experiences within a lecture-based course. A number of different assessment methods are on-going with this course.
