Khanlari, Ahmad – European Journal of Engineering Education, 2016
Twenty-first century education systems should create an environment wherein students encounter critical learning components (such as problem-solving, teamwork, and communication skills) and embrace lifelong learning. A review of literature demonstrates that new technologies, in general, and robotics, in particular, are well suited for this aim.…

Goldstain, Ofir; Ben-Gal, Irad; Bukchin, Yossi – European Journal of Engineering Education, 2007
This work proposes an approach to remote learning of robotic cells based on internet and simulation tools. The proposed approach, which integrates remote-learning and tele-operation into a generic scheme, is designed to enable students and developers to set-up and manipulate a robotic cell remotely. Its implementation is based on a dedicated…

Barak, Moshe – European Journal of Engineering Education, 2012
Project-based learning is undoubtedly one of the best instructional methods for developing students' broad learning capabilities, beyond teaching specific subject matter. However, experienced engineering teachers often tend to concentrate on merely teaching pupils the technical side of project work. This paper describes a programme aimed at…
