Online learning, Computer Science education


An online system is described that has been used for fully online instruction as well as a supplement for face to face courses. The student uses a web browser as the interface. The system was originally described as the Virtual Textbook, but its capabilities have increased to include delivering interactive educational experiences, monitoring student progress and giving individual assignments. It has many of the features of a Learning Management System as well as additional features. Unlike an LMS, much of its behaviour may be altered with programming. It is also freely available under the GNU GPL.
