Abstract

The rise of the virtual campus, combined with object oriented programming techniques and multi-dimensional graphic design, has unlocked the opportunity to develop an interactive software system with the aim of enhancing fundamental problem-solving skills of learners enrolled for the Computer Science, Information Technology and Mathematics program at tertiary institutions. Cognitive functional skills such as logical thinking, conceptualism with prior knowledge, relationship forming and objective analysis are included in the definition of fundamental problem-solving skills. Given the right educational tools, cognitive functional skills of learners can be stimulated, developed and enhanced. This, in turn, may lead to an increase in the graduation rates of learners enrolled for the Computer Science, Information Technology and Mathematics program and ultimately contribute to the reshaping of the educational experience.
