Abstract

The paper presents preliminary results of the evaluation process performed on a Computer-Based Learning course of digital electronics, developed by the authors. Data on students' computer background, courseware installation and mode and frequency of use have been collected by the compilation of a questionnaire. Specific information on the course modules, their usefulness and ease of use and overall evaluation are acquired and discussed. The conclusions provide an orientation for future developments of the CBL materials.
