Design of PLC Technology Courses Based on Blended Learning in Colleges and Universities

Conference paper
Part of the Lecture Notes of the Institute for Computer Sciences, Social Informatics and Telecommunications Engineering book series (LNICST, volume 299)


PLC technology course is a specialized course of electronic information engineering major of our school. It contains several programming languages such as sequential function chart, logic block diagram, statement list, ladder diagram, etc. It is important in cultivating and improving students’ programming ability effect. Combining the characteristics of PLC technology course with the advantages of hybrid teaching method, this paper studies deeply from curriculum construction, instructional design to curriculum evaluation. Based on the Blended learning method, the “online” and “offline”, The combination of theory and experiment teaching model, to optimize the teaching quality of PLC technology has a positive role in promoting.
