Programming classes present a unique set of instructional and student support problems. These problems can be addressed with a combination of readily available Internet and Web-based technologies including communication via e-mail, classroom materials distribution via a Web site, and file transfer via a Web and/or FTP server. Application of these technologies can improve many aspects of student support including technical support for completing programming assignments. Successful implementation of Web-based support requires specific attention to many details including creating and maintaining Web content, administering server resources and specific Web standards and software. Resource requirements are not large, but administrative resources are required and instructor activity patterns differ from those of a traditional class.
