Abstract [en]

In the summer of 2005 a Peer-to-Peer (P2P) computing course was held where business applications and scenarios were used to place the computing concepts of P2P systems in a more real-world perspective. The features of different P2P applications were given a dual focus of computing systems and business application, and thus set apart from being studied solely as a pure computing phenomenon towards also being looked at from a real use perspective. We will report on some findings from the course and how the course will be updated based on these findings. The original aim is to develop a course where a business context is to be used to motivate students to learn computing at a deeper and more cross-disciplinary level, as well as to prepare students for their professional life working with real people of different skills and knowledge in real situations.

We believe that courses incorporating cross-disciplinary and more real-world situations will increase recruitment of new students, due to such courses being viewed as more holistic overlay of a traditional computing course; and further, that student retention of concepts will improve as the students obtain a broader understanding of the use and context of computing knowledge and skills.
