Abstract

Designing web technology courses that match students’ knowledge background and emphasize students’ hands-on experience is imperative yet challenging. This paper discusses a new approach to teaching web technologies, particularly, open source Web 2.0 technologies, in which a combination of studios, mini-lectures, presentations and tutorials, class blogs and wikis is used. We conduct a case study to demonstrate and evaluate how such an approach was used in two Information Science courses - one graduate level and the other undergraduate. Based upon survey results and written evaluations from the class blogs and wikis, students feel this studio approach makes the course one of their most valuable learning experiences.
