Advances in the multimedia technology provide an opportunity to enhance learning an Engineering subject like Digital Signal Processing (DSP). The paper presents a new teaching method that effectively integrates Information Technology into teaching - learning process. The entire DSP modules are implemented in an open source Course Management System (CMS), Moodle. It helps the students at undergraduate level in learning introductory DSP and experimenting with its basic concepts. At the same time, course instructors also find smooth flow of the contents covered that helps them in enhancing the effectiveness of their lectures, assign tasks to students with simple methods of evaluation and easy tracking of student’s progress at every stage of learning. Moodle has been adopted by many people and organizations around the world, as it offers a tightly integrated set of tools to develop a powerful E-Learning tool. The focus here is upon effective adoption of the tool so that the teacher concentrates more on the learning activities and uses all the Moodle tools successfully. Moodle helps to present the course contents exactly the way the teacher has mapped the subject structure, but through a more controlled environment. The method is well suited for teaching the theoretical and mathematical concepts of DSP.
