American Journal of Physics
written by Lorella Jones and Dennis Kane
Students in a large freshman mechanics course for engineers use computer-based tutorials, homework exercises, and quizzes as an important part of the course. For 27 consecutive semesters, students were asked to rate various course components on their usefulness in learning the material. In every one of these semesters, the computer-based materials outranked the lecturer, text, and lab section - despite the fact that lecturers and texts varied.
