This article presents a study that aimed to determine engineering students' preferred way of learning and to provide additional learning resources to support their methods of learning. The population for this study was drawn from electrical, civil, and mechanical engineering programs at an urban university. Overall, the results of the study clearly indicated that students still have a high preference for class lecture and live/physical demonstrations. However, being in a classroom and laboratory setting for live demonstrations may not always be possible for all students all the time, considering the pressures of work and family life. Not surprisingly, there is an overwhelming desire by students to have access to web-based demonstrations and materials as additional learning tools and resources. The students will have the opportunity to learn and review their course materials as many times as needed from any location of their preference. Students who had access to the learning module showed learning gains in both laboratory experiments and classroom tests. (Contains 3 figures.)
