INTRODUCTION

A web site providing on-line materials for a freshman level digital logic design laboratory in electrical and computer engineering is presented. The web site is designed to integrate the laboratory program with other components of the digital logic class, such as the lecture and on-line testing materials. The class web site provides laboratory content to 130-180 engineering and computer science students each semester. Laboratory materials are encoded in Adobe portable document file format and are provided on a weekly basis. The web site provides a mechanism of integration between the lecture and laboratory in a manner not possible by traditional publishing means.

PAINTING NEW VISTAS WITH ON-LINE MATERIALS

The advent of on-line lecture and laboratory materials for university courses has radically changed the type and scope of course materials that students may now obtain for their classes. These web-based publishing mechanisms have also opened up new vistas for new and innovative course content creation not possible through traditional means. No longer are students limited to information provided by prepared textbooks and laboratory
