Computer Organization and Architecture (COA) is a core course in the curricula of Computer Sciences as well as Electronics and Electrical Engineering disciplines at the second-year level in most of the Indian universities and technical institutions. This is the first course in COA and the course would provide students with an understanding of the design of fundamental blocks used for building a computer system and interfacing techniques of these blocks to achieve different configurations of an “entire computer system”.

This course will be developed and taught with respect to Objectives based on Bloom’s Taxonomy. First, we will highlight the main objectives the course is aimed to achieve. Following that, at each module, we will specify the module level objectives and demonstrate how these objectives meet the course level main goals in unison. At the leaf level i.e., the units, we will point the specific objectives of the lecture. Also, it will be demonstrated how the unit level objectives satisfy the parent module level objectives. Further, each module will have a module level problem which needs concepts of all the units therein to solve. Finally, a comprehensive course level problem related to design of “entire computer system” will be discussed which meets all the course level objectives.
