Abstract

The use of multimedia computer technology as replacement, or supplement to, human educators in engineering education is becoming widespread. Such technology can be employed to demonstrate & correlate real life application and theory thereby promoting deep learning. Interactive courseware for higher learning institutions may be extremely useful where trained human resources in the engineering education sector are limited. However, although many interactive multimedia systems have been developed, only few of these systems can really be said to be successful. This paper present an overview of the status of some interactive techniques commonly used in the context of engineering education and discuss the current trends of incorporating multimedia technology in the teaching engineering subjects.
