Abstract

The learning of programming has been considered to be very difficult. To assist a class of 25 undergraduates to learn web programming, the researchers applied a collaborative blended learning approach in this study. After obtaining knowledge from lectures, the students were required to develop questions for generating an online quiz for the whole class. Results indicate that a high proportion of the questions were of high quality, and these reflected students’ positive attitude. The students also demonstrated good performance in the online quiz, and it provided evidence of the effectiveness of the pedagogy. This study suggests that a collaborative blended learning approach could be applied to support students to learn web programming. Copyright © 2018 the respective authors.
