A Reactive Blended Learning Proposal for an Introductory Control Engineering Course
Mendez, Juan A.; Gonzalez, Evelio J.
Computers & Education, v54 n4 p856-865 May 2010
As it happens in other fields of engineering, blended learning is widely used to teach process control topics. In this paper, the inclusion of a reactive element--a Fuzzy Logic based controller--is proposed for a blended learning approach in an introductory control engineering course. This controller has been designed in order to regulate the workload for each student, according to his activity and performance. The proposed course is based on a web tool called ControlWeb, which includes a complete vision of control topics and is used intensively along the course. The results of the evaluation of the methodology attest its efficiency in terms of learning degree and performance of the students. (Contains 4 tables and 7 figures.)
