Green computer science courses. No more labs full of computers, we’re going mobile!

Abstract

Traditionally computer sciences courses have been taught using laboratories full of expensive desktop computers. This approach may have been valid in the 80, 90’s and even the early part of this decade. This paper suggests that buying; maintaining and replacing laboratories full of computers are no longer a requirement. This paper raises the issues associated with such a ‘bold’ step, but offers potential solutions that, in some cases, may make Computer Science courses at such ‘brave’ institutions more appealing
