Limited contact time with students in traditional lecture classes poses a challenge for the lecturer to cover course contents in depth. Furthermore, due to diverse learning abilities of the students some concepts are very basic for a subset of the class and they may lose their focus. Technology provides a potential solution to this dilemma. One-way delivery of material can be provided in the form of a video or online presentation prior to class intended to cover a topic. The students can go through the material in advance and come prepared in the session to clarify their understanding using the enquiry based learning methods. An additional benefit is that the material remains available for the students for later reinforcement of their learning/understanding and also for the revision before a summative assessment. This material can also be improved over the time, based on student feedback and requests. In this proposed experiment we intend to investigate how effective this mode of teaching/learning can be in traditional series of lectures.
