Multimedia Tutors for Science and Engineering.
Woolf, Beverly Park; Poli, Corrado; Grosse, Ian; Day, Roberta
We have built several multimedia tutors for science and engineering education. This paper discusses Design for Manufacturing tutors and an electronic homework systems used by over 2000 students daily. The engineering tutors instruct students on efficient procedures for designing parts for manufacture. The goal is to support a deeper understanding of the interaction between features of a part being designed and the corresponding manufacturing requirements of the part in injection molding, sheet metal stamping, and finite element analysis. Animated sequences of the processes are either generated dynamically or indexed according to the possible design. Students create designs, and the tooling complexity is demonstrated through both 2D and 3D animations. (Author)
