Abstract

This work presents the development of technology-assisted problem solving (TAPS) packages at University Tenaga Nasional (UNITEN). This project is the further work of the development of interactive multimedia based packages targeted for students having problems in understanding the subject of Engineering Mechanics Dynamics. In this study TAPS packages are compared to other selected engineering computer packages. The differences found were indicative of better presentation and clarity, step-by-step approach to solve engineering problems, user-friendly environment, unbiased assessment of performance and flexibility to incorporate 3-D geometric models in the TAPS packages.
