How Media Computation was Designed
The Planning Wiki we Used for Media Computation:
See bottom, especially
for examples of our use of the Wiki when developing that course.
A paper on how we designed Media Computation:
Guzdial and Forte. "Design Process for a Non-majors Computing Course."
Paper on how Media Computation and Engineering CS1's started at first semester: Forte and Guzdial. (May 2005).
"Motivation and Non-Majors in Computer Science: Identifying Discrete Audiences for Introductory Courses."
