Teaching introductory courses in Computer Science and Management Information Systems to students is often hindered by a variety of factors. Computer-assisted learning methods may provide solutions to such problems. Feedback from the students in the development of these methods is of great importance to their overall success. The essence of the work discussed here, is to create an environment to support computer related courses, addressing the needs of both students and educators. The general aim has been to develop a flexible, simple, modular and consistent system considering not only the administrative framework, but also the actual educational content. This paper will describe the main modules of this system and present examples of their use. The modules have been tested in a number of different computer courses, and feedback from the students was collected in the form of questionnaires. The results of this survey will be presented and discussed in this paper.
