Abstract


This paper proposes the Advanced-Active-Autonomous (A3) Learning System, which is an educational system based on the use of information and communication technology. The A3 Learning System is a combination of Active Learning (AL), Project/Problem-Based Learning (PBL) and Mastery Learning (ML). We report some uses of the A3 system and implemented AL and ML in foundational learning in the software/hardware information fields. Additionally, we implemented PBL in software design. We implemented two methods; one involves individual students and the other involves a group. Furthermore, to evaluate the benefits of the A3 Learning System, the Progress Report on Generic Skill (PROG) test was carried out; the results of the test are discussed here.
