Abstract: Software Development is a core second-year course currently offered toundergraduate students at Victoria University at its five local andinternational campuses. The project aims to redesign the existing coursecurriculum to support student-centred teaching and learning. It is intended toprovide a learning context in which learners can reflect on new material,discuss their tentative understandings with others, actively search for newinformation, develop skills in communication and collaboration, and buildconceptual connections to their existing knowledge base. The key feature of thecross-campus curriculum innovation is the use of Blackboard, short forBlackboard Learning System, to assist in course content organization and onlinedelivery. A well-defined and integrated case study is used throughout thecourse to provide realistic practical experience of software development. Itallows students to take control of their own learning while at the same timeproviding support to those students who have particular learning difficulties.In this paper, the developed curriculum and the learning outcome are described.The e-Learning material and various Blackboard tools used for teaching andlearning activities are presented. Finally, conclusion is drawn from classroomexperience.
