G.J.C. Copinga, B. De Schutter, J.M.A. Scherpen, and M.J.J.M. van de Ven, "A web-based study support environment for systems and control courses," Proceedings of the 2001 American Control Conference, Arlington, Virginia, pp. 1155-1160, June 2001.
We describe the development and the current implementation of a web-based study support environment that is used for teaching systems and control courses at Delft University of Technology, The Netherlands. The aim of this web-based study support environment is to increase the study effectiveness in systems and control courses. First we describe the new course format that has been introduced to successfully implement the web-based study support environment. We also give a brief overview of the study support environment itself and discuss our experiences with the environment, which is currently being used for the third consecutive year. We also compare our experiences and the results in using this study support system with those of the preceding years, in which the system was not yet used.
