Abstract

This paper describes the development of hypertext based open-learning and assessment materials for the teaching of software engineering. The system, cre- ated in the School of Computing and Information Systems at the University of Sunderland is available via the World- Wide- Web (the Web) and permits the delivery of the teaching material over the global academic computer network, the Internet (the Net). The system permits the incorporation of CASE tools into the hypertext environment to facilitate practical S.E. tutorial activity Current practices in teaching Software Engineering at Sunderland are reviewed along with the problems they present such as high staff/student ratios and low contact time between staf
