ABSTRACT

Computer literacy education is an integral part of early university education (it often starts at the high school level). A wide variety of university course structures and teaching styles exist and, at the same time, the knowledge levels of incoming students are varied. This issue is even more pressing in an international environment. This paper offers students' perspectives on computer literacy education in such an international environment. Based on the author's experience in a computer literacy course and on a questionnaire given to the course participants, the paper aims to identify teaching styles to which students respond positively, as well as LMS functionalities that most students accept or prefer to use during computer literacy related classes.
