Issues
Uniformity
 Difficulty of recruiting instructors/offering
courses
 Transferability

– Course credits
– Preparation for follow on courses
Tutored Video Instruction
Pioneered by Jack Gibbons (Stanford)
in the 70s
 Group viewing of archived course
materials with a tutor

CSE 142/143

Large courses

Fixed and stable course materials
 Currently taught using C/C++
 Language change to Java, Summer
2001

Ulterior Motives
IT work force issues
 Understand use of Technology in
Education
 Export of UW CSE Curriculum
 Leadership in Educational Technology

Goals for TVI Project
Develop exportable class materials
 Evaluate Tutored Video as a means of
instruction
 Develop scalable evaluation
mechanisms

Long range view
Sustainable mechanism needed
 Centralized model

– Organization develops courseware Grades
coursework and exams
Packages university courses
 This organization is NOT the UW CSE
Department
 Many thorny issues

Assessment

Short Term
– How do we do a good job this quarter

Medium term
– How do we effectively use TVI to present
CSE 142/143 at Community Colleges

Long term
– Understanding of how/why TVI works
Mechanics
Lectures
 Schedule
 Course materials
 Exams
 Homework
 Grading
 Academic dishonesty

Lectures
Lecture material from Winter 2000
Download from
http://www.cs.washington.edu/education/TVI/
Use zipped version from local machine
Test setup before class
Homework Grading
Electronic submission of Homework
 Paperless grading of Homework.
 Final assignments have face-to-face
grading.
 Homework made available on web.
 Different course schedules cause a
synchronization problem.

Assignment of grades

Scores and equivalent UW grade will be
given to CC instructors Actual
assignment of grade is responsibility of
CC instructor
Evaluation
Surveys and class visits
 Direct email feedback from students
(anonymous and named)
 Some sections successful, others not


Lessons learned

Course materials
– Positive response to lecturers
– Difficulty with material not captured in
lectures

Centralized administration did not work
– Logistics
– Student concerns
– Separation of students from local instructor
Future of TVI at UW

Studio produce “made for TVI” lectures
– CSE 142 (Sept 2000)
– CSE 143 (Fall 2000)
– CSE 100 (2001)

Change in administrative model
– Course export
• Lectures, supporting materials, hw, exams
– Evaluation done by local instructor
Other issues

Language change: C/C++ to Java
– UW Transition (Summer 2001)
– CC conversion

Articulation
– Standardization of course
materials/curriculum
– Placement tests
