Title variants
Languages of publication
The use of web-enhanced through accelerated to teach and reinforce project management concepts based on specific learning objectives has been a positive experience for engineering students of SY 2015-2016 in the Qassim University of Buraidah City. This study describes the rapid development of a web enhanced project management course (GE 402) as a teaching with technology alternative to the traditional approach. The main theme of the study is to give a basic introduction to the design, implementation, and usage of web enhanced in teaching undergraduate project management course with adequate hands on experience in Primavera Planning and MS Project. This study aims to (i) compare the effectiveness of the web enhanced learning from a traditional learning; (ii) identify the management skills used by the engineers in the construction industries; (iii) the evaluations on learning by the engineering students of SY 2014-2015 & SY 2015-2016 (iv) the mean responses of the engineering students of SY 2014-2015 on the level of confidence of project management skills gained from traditional format learning; (v) the mean responses of the engineering students of SY 2015-2016 on the level of confidence of project management skills gained from the web enhanced format learning.
