This paper describes an experiment we conducted using both synchronous and asynchronous online tools in computer science courses at the Open University of Israel. We believe that computer science courses are appropriate for investigating on-line learning because many of them deal with processes (algorithms, queries on databases, etc.) which are much easier to learn through animated presentations than through written explanations. The success of this experiment encourages us to widen the experiment in the coming semesters.
