Abstract
TEL is a new pedagogical domain which main purpose is to study how information and communication technologies can be used to support teaching and learning. The following study investigated how TEL is used to increase technical skills in CS. A Delphi method was applied, using three-rounds of online survey questions, given to 17 TEL experts from different European countries. The results showed that these experts consider that TEL represents an effective alternative to acquire CS skills. Furthermore, the findings revealed the five best tools in TEL to acquire necessary CS knowledge. Future research can provide a guideline to implement effective TEL tools in CS studies. This manuscript investigates how Technology Enhanced Learning (TEL) systems can be applied to Computer Science (CS) curriculum to improve the student’s skills. As general content the results of a Delphi study that identifies the benefits of TEL while teaching are highlighted.
