Abstract

Abstract: This paper compares students' perceptions of support provided in the acquisition of various thinking and team-building skills, as a consequence of the integration of various resources and technology used in an upper level Distributed Computing course. The findings indicate that students perceived strong support for their acquisition of higher-order thinking skills and team-building skills from the offline resources, but moderate support from the online resources and technologies provided in the course which was in opposition to the grades received. It also seems that those in the traditional computer lab setting perceived online resources as more supportive of higher-order thinking skills than those in other sections and those in the electronic classroom perceived the least support from them. The results were mixed for team-building skills and for offline resources support for higher-order thinking skills.
