Abstract

Students often get a good score in written exams but fail to apply their knowledge when trying to solve real-world problems. This is applies particularly to computer hardware courses in which students are required to learn and memorize many key terms and definitions. Also, teachers often find it difficult to gauge students’ progress when teaching computer hardware fundamentals. These problems are related to the learning process, so it is necessary to find an appropriate instructional model to overcome these problems. This chapter describes a Web-based tool called the assistant tool, which is based on problem-based learning (PBL) theory and not only assists instructors in teaching computer hardware fundamentals but also overcomes the above-mentioned problems.
