Computer programming is a core skill for most computer science degrees and a skill that can result in immediate financial benefit to many students presently working in industry. Many of our non-traditional students take our programming courses to develop the programming skill in hopes of getting a better job rather than to earn a degree. This online-internet course was designed to meet the needs of both the traditional and non-traditional student. This paper focuses on the process I followed in developing and managing the online-internet course, what students liked and disliked about it, what I learned about administering an online-internet course, and ideas to incorporate in my next online-internet course.
Keywords: programming, core skills, non-traditional students, online-Internet course
