Abstract

Interactivity and feedback are key contributors to providing an effective learning environment for students. Lectures provide the main resource for university students to discover what is expected of them and to identify the key learning goals related to a course, from a lecturer. This paper focuses on resolving the problems and anxieties faced by first year Computer Science students at the University of Southampton, through various user-centred design methodologies. Lecturers are also considered to look into providing a design idea or recommendation that will motivate students to be more forthcoming with their problems, as well as support the current practices of lecturers. To facilitate interaction with lecturers, it is important that students can acknowledge that the lecturer will deal with their problems and that the participation from the lecturer is not excessive. Results from the interviews, questionnaire and diary study highlighted anonymity and feedback as focal areas to consider in an online-based system. This would encourage students to voice their concerns about lectures or topics that they find difficult.
