A novel teaching technique is introduced utilizing the Student Oriented Comprehensive Knowledge Enhancement Technique (SOCKET). There are three main components to this model: the Learning Objectives (LO), Class Activity Modules (CAM), and Assessment Module (AM). In the Learning Objectives, the course contents are broken into smaller concepts that progresses from basic to advanced level within the topic. The Class Activity Modules are developed strictly based on the concepts outlined in the LO. The design of these modules takes into account the student comprehension of the concepts and the completion of the classroom activities with minimal difficulty. The Assessment Module (AM) is basically a test bank that is used to assess the students' learning status. The development of a course using the SOCKET model can be both time consuming and challenging to the instructor but the end justifies the means. Assessment tools using student feedback are one of the key elements of this technique since it is intended to be dynamic in nature. One of the ultimate goals of SOCKET model is the development of self-learners and the promotion of active learning. The other goal focuses on the fact that when SOCKET is fully developed, it should lend itself easily to multi-platform delivery. Its application to classroom instruction has already proven to be simple, so we are confident that its subsequent application to Web/distance education should be simple as well. Samples of the SOCKET model are illustrated
