- Effects of Introducing BYOD in the Department of Electronics and Information Engineering, Fukui KOSEN
The Department of Electronics and Information Engineering in Fukui KOSEN has introduced the Bring Your Own Device BYOD system which means that students must bring their own devices when they use a PCs in the classroom. The system enables students to have programming exercises in their classroom. It also enables teachers to collect students' assignments utilizing their own devises. In this paper, we have shown the background leading to the introduction of the BYOD system and practical operational procedures. We have also verified the effects of the system and problems by student questionnaires and teacher observations. As a result, we have found that the BYOD system enhances the use of non-school PCs and reduces congestion of computer rooms in the institution. We also have indicated that the BYOD system can increase student autonomy and revitalize student activities, such as self-management of their academic results with the learning management system LMS and active learning with communication tools. We have pointed out that enhancement of the effect requires the buildup of hardware, the designing of lessons for student's PCs, and the development of teaching materials. In the first semester of 2020, almost all classes at Fukui KOSEN were conducted remotely because of COVID-19. Through a questionnaire, we also showed the difference between the home learning environment of students who take the class with the BYOD system and without it. As a result, we have found that the introduction of the BYOD system is necessary for utilizing teaching materials for remote classes because students in classes with the BYOD system have a better home learning environment for remote classes.
