> As part of a research program funded by Bournemouth University, my
> colleagues and I have produced four electronic lectures:
>
>
> - Human-Computer Interaction: An Introduction.
>
> - An Introduction to Questionnaire Design and Analysis.
>
> - Starting Your Computing Project.
>
> - An Introduction to Qualitative Methods in Human-Computer Interaction.
>
>
> The first three are by Prof. Dan Diaper and the last by Dr. Jacqui Taylor.
> Each e-lecture lasts about 45 minutes and can either be watched as a
> traditionally delivered lecture, or can be browsed using the e-lectures'
> hypertext facilities.  We recommend students do both.
>
> These e-lectures use any version of Microsoft Powerpoint running on a PC
> (not Macs or UNIX, sorry) and are available on CD-ROM for automatic
> installation on hard disc (about 400Mbytes required).  We have been able
> to run multiple copies of an e-lecture over Bournemouth University's
> intranet, but the megabyteage of even compressed video clips makes
> delivery over the internet not yet feasible.  Most of our students have
> borrowed a CD from our library overnight to install on their own PC.
>
> Most of these e-lectures were used by Bournemouth University's students
> last year on a range of undergraduate computing/IT/psychology degree
> programs and the overall feedback has been fairly positive.  We hope to
> write up for publication the considerable range of evaluations we have
> undertaken during the next year.

> We've already found many advantages to using e-lectures, not having to
> give the lecture, obviously, but also for revision.  What we've tended to
> do is for our students to have several lecture hours cancelled and to give
> students a week or fortnight to use the e-lecture and then make it the
> basis for one or more seminar sessions.
>
> The funding of our Do-It-Yourself Electronic Lecture (DIYEL) Project has
> now finished.  We believe that there may be many people around the world
> who might find these e-lectures useful.  As a non-profit venture we can
> post these e-lectures to you as CD-ROMs, although we have to cover our
> costs.  We are asking for a contribution of U.K. pounds 15 (20 U.S.
> dollars or Euros) for each DIYEL with an Institutional Licence valid until
> the beginning of 2005 (the time limit is so that we have the option to
> up-date the e-lectures).  Full details of costs, personal and multiple
> copies, etc. can be found on the DIYEL Project web site:

> If you wish to order one or more of these e-lectures then please write to
> Prof. Dan Diaper at the address below including payment by cheque, cash or
> with an institutional, numbered order.

> Prof. Dan Diaper,
> School of Design, Engineering & Computing,
> Bournemouth University,
> Talbot Campus, Fern Barrow,
> Poole, Dorset, BH12 5BB, U.K.

> If, hopefully after visiting the web site, you wish to discuss things with
> Prof. Diaper then he can be emailed on: [log in to unmask] .

>
> P.S. We'd really appreciate feedback about how these lectures are used and
> the students' views and performance with them.
>
> P.P.S. The web site does have a section devoted to potential collaborative
> work on the DIYEL approach.  Naturally we'd be delighted to hear from
> people about this, and particularly from anyone who might be interested in
> the commercialisation of the approach.
