UW CSE Tutored Video Pilot Project
The University of Washington's Department of Computer Science & Engineering, in collaboration with several area community colleges, is exploring a new approach to introductory computer science education.
Our experiment addresses two issues. The first is the extraordinary labor involved in preparing materials for intensive courses such as UW's CSE 142 and CSE 143 -- generically, "CS 1" and "CS 2." Can we achieve economies? The second is articulation: can we make our courses more comparable, to facilitate transfer and to improve the foundation of all students?
Also availiable are zipped files of the lecture presentations. These zip files contain a higher quality video of the classroom lecture, GIFs of the slides for presentation, and a PowerPoint document containing the original slides. To view these lectures, download the file, decompress it using WinZip or another zip utility, and double click on the file named Launcher.html. Note: to view these files you will need the latest version of the Microsoft Windows Media Player. Warning: these files are large! (80-100MB) It is not recommended that you try to download them if you are accessing the Internet via a modem. We are using this porky format in order to obtain high audio and video quality.
