Abstract

A 3-credit general education course on "Energy Conservation and Environmental Protection" (EGEE 102) was developed and offered primarily for non-science/engineering students. Energy is a vital component of modern society. While people believe that the energy use is the culprit for environmental damage, they are not aware of the methods and principles by which energy conversion devices operate and how an individual can influence environmental protection by their actions. This general education course provides students with necessary knowledge and information on the main operating principles of devices/appliances that are in common use and information on how to make the right decision in selecting the most energy efficient and economical choice. In fall of 2001 the enrollment in the course was 69 and in fall of 2005 the enrollment increased to 860. This course was taught in multiple sections (six sections in fall of 2005) by the same instructor. In 2004, this course was selected by the University under the "Courseware" initiative to be offered as an online course. To develop the online version of EGEE 102, the EGEE Department, the Teaching and Learning with Technology (TLT) Unit of the University's Information Technology Services and the John A Dutton e-Education Institute have collaborated to generate highly interactive student specific data driven learning objects in an innovative manner.
