ABSTRACT
Programming courses can, by their nature, be very dry. One question this raises is: can a student-driven course provide an opportunity for a higher level of learning? This paper intends to present the results and analysis of such an innovative approach and the students' reactions to taking responsibility for a module in network programming.
