several strategies for distance education in computer programming are described with particular reference to the provision of computing facilities and the integration of theory and practical work. Experience of presentation of the two different courses has shown that the most satisfactory results are obtained with portable stand-alone micro-computers loaned off-campus, and course design based on a modified Keller plan in which each unit has interactive practical exercises preceding the discussion of theory topics.
