Educational Support System for Experiments Involving Construction of Sound Processing Circuits
Takemura, Atsushi
International Association for Development of the Information Society, Paper presented at the International Association for Development of the Information Society (IADIS) International Conference on Cognition and Exploratory Learning in Digital Age (CELDA) (Madrid, Spain, Oct 19-21, 2012)
This paper proposes a novel educational support system for technical experiments involving the production of practical electronic circuits for sound processing. To support circuit design and production, each student uses a computer during the experiments, and can learn circuit design, virtual circuit making, and real circuit making. In the proposed system, an analysis system that runs on the internet translates the composition of the circuit that is designed and constructed by the experimenter into the general circuit description language (SPICE). This circuit translation into SPICE enables the simulation of circuit behavior and indicates the presence of incorrect parts in the circuit. The analysis system also provides simulated sound, which is synthesized on the basis of circuit designed or constructed by an experimenter. Therefore, students can individually learn practical circuit making, behaviors of sound-processing circuits, and sound simulation. The proposed system is applicable to various circuit types and learning environments, such as computer-aided circuit design and the manufacture of both virtual and real circuits. The usefulness and effectiveness of the proposed system was evaluated by analyzing circuits made by five university students in an actual class. (Contains 3 figures.)
