Student Feedback towards Media Based Instruction: Improving Student Retention in Introductory Electronics & Network Analysis courseAbstractThis paper discusses an educational effort to improve student retention in introductoryelectronics and network analysis course offered at a university in northeastern UnitedStates. It uses a new Media Based Tutorial and mini project intended to engage studentsin their studies. The paper, also seeks to study the effects of technology mode ofinstruction that complements conventional mode of instruction. This development, aswell as lessons learned in the first three years of technology mode of instruction inintroductory engineering courses (namely Electric Circuits, Electronics, and NetworkAnalysis) is evaluated with statistics. A concluding section is offered that discusses thebenefit of balancing conventional mode of instruction with technology mode ofinstruction.
