The "Rock Band" rhythm video game is very popular and enjoyable way to simulate participation in an actual rock band. While this game includes guitar, vocal, and drum components, the focus of this study will be on the drumming aspect of this program. The purpose of this experiment and paper is to understand the psycho-motor skill learning and transfer of(More)
In our computer architecture course, we ask students to design an instruction set for an eight- or sixteen-bit computer and then implement that design in an emulated computer using a logic emulation package. In Winter semester 2006 a team of three students decided to design and implement the "Marie" computer instruction set described in the book by Null and(More)
Students learn better when they both hear and do. In computer architecture courses " doing " can be difficult in small schools without hardware labs hosted by computer engineering, electrical engineering, or similar departments. Software solutions exist. Our success with George Mills' Multimedia Logic (MML) is the focus of this paper. We have found that(More)
An eight-bit computer has been designed using an open source logic emulation package called "Multimedia Logic" from www.softronix.com. The intent of the project was to make clear to computer science students how the data path and control lines work to provide computer functionality. This computer is an excellent teaching aid because: 1. All registers, ALU(More)
In our computer architecture class, we researched logic simulators for design of educational computers. We have regularly had students design, create and operate a simulated computer as part of this course. This has allowed students to understand the internal details of instruction decoding and data path control. In the past we have used Multimedia Logic(More)
This paper describes six years of experience in a bi-annual personal computer (PC) repair, service learning project for IT students. The location is a relatively remote community of professionals with many personal computers exposed to a humid salt air environment. The idea came from an informal survey at a local elementary school where half the students(More)
After a course in Artificial Intelligence, many students want to go further. In our case, this translates into an elective course in robotics as well as senior projects and independent student research. While a purely theoretical robotics course is possible, we prefer a course where students further their understanding of robotic principles through labs(More)

Many open source digital logic emulators are available and some have been used by the author to build demonstrations, applets, circuits, and computers for use in discrete mathematics, hardware and operating systems, networking, computer organization and computer architecture classes. This workshop will teach attendees how to use three free, open source(More)
