Over the past few decades, many researchers have tested course designs that may better engage students in developing countries, accommodate for Millennials’ desires to learn and teach at will, and teach students the skills they need for their first jobs. The vision of this paper for a web design course seeks to address these issues for engineering students. The paper first details the ‘study everywhere, anytime, from any device and using any tool’ approach, following the CDIO (Conceive, Design…
