Abstract

An introductory course in computer programming is being developed at Stanford University as a vehicle for research in tutorial modes of computer-assisted instruction (CAI). Several design features will be appropriate to training in other technical areas and applicable in other instructional settings where the development of analytic and problem-solving skills is a goal. This paper describes the course and discusses its integration into college curriculums.
