Integration Of Innovative Technologies And Affective Teaching & Learning In Programming Courses

[Full Text]



Alvin Prasad, Mohammed Farik



Index Terms: Affective, Education Technology, Programming Course, Teaching & Learning



Abstract: Technology has been integral component in the teaching and learning process in this millennium. In this review paper, we evaluate the different technologies which are used to currently facilitate the teaching and learning of computer programming courses. The aim is to identify problems or gaps in technology usage in the learning environment, and suggest affective solutions for technology integration into programming courses at the University levels in the future. We believe that with the inclusion of suggested innovative technologies and affective solutions in programming courses, teaching and learning will be attractive and best for the programming industry.
