An Online MATLAB Course: Pre-knowledge, individual pace and feedback

In this project, we have developed an online mini-course in the use of the software MATLAB for students of economics. The course consists of 8 exercises, extra material for each exercise, and three concrete case studies. The course features customized feedback and is intended to be done individually at home. The case studies showcase the capabilities of MATLAB by solving core problems from the core bachelor courses that students have traditionally been doing by hand. The idea is (i) that an online course is good approach to handling the very heterogeneous degrees of pre-knowledge observated, (ii) that immediate automated feedback is essential for self-study, (iii) and that extra material and case studies helps the students see the big picture.
