Abstract

Dissemination of Microprocessor Courses through Classroom and Interactive Cyber-Enabled TechnologiesAbstractThe research and developmental effort is to train 120 faculties to instruct courses usingembedded microcontroller technologies. Microcontroller technologies are programmed tooperate products used every day, such as the controls in our automobiles, microwave ovens,washers and dryers, cell phones, etc. This is the second phase project these researchers have beenawarded by the National Science Foundation on microcontroller technologies. This new projectis a joint venture with Wayne State University, University of California - Fresno, TidewaterCommunity College, and Blue Ridge Community College.During the first year of this 3-year project, the researchers refined a training system that wasdeveloped and tested through the earlier grant. This includes the re-design of a training panel andthe further refinement and development of instructional modules to guide teaching and studentlaboratory activities. During years 2 and 3, the universities will train 20 faculties each in theirregions during summer sessions. All of the training will be accomplished using distance learningtechnologies. The assessment methods include Pre- and Post-test, surveys, and interviews thatare conducted by independent consultants and approved and monitored by all three universityIRB communities.
