The Electronic Design Education Consortium (EDEC) is dedicated to the production of computer-based teaching and learning material to support the education of electronic engineers and computer scientists. It is one of the projects being funded under the Teaching and Learning Technology Programme (TLTP), a major initiative of the UK Higher Education Funding Councils aimed at making teaching and learning more productive and efficient by harnessing modern technology. This paper begins with a brief overview of the development of computer-based teaching and learning in the UK. The aims and objectives of the TLTP are then set out in sufficient detail to understand the context in which the EDEC project is operating. This is followed by an account of the methods being used by EDEC to achieve its stated goals of producing 160 h of courseware during the 3-year duration of the project.
