A Web Site: The main point for all courses
The main point for students to go for information
Each course has it’s own location
Web Based Notes: How to use the web to present in lectures
A directory structure will help organize materials: link up eod_directory
Set up a strategy for each topic: mine is,
1. Some overview that sets the reason and objective for the section. (a good place for pictures)
2. An overview of relevant theory.
3. A simple example problem: with solution and notes about steps, notations, etc.
4. A simple unsolved drill problem.
5. Additional notes on technique and methods. (working model files work well here)
6. An advanced problem with solution
7. An unsolved complex problem, done on the board
A table of contents is a good place to start: link up html table of contents page
Web Based Lectures: How to use the web to present materials
The lecture is basically conducted by the notes.
Statics: A statics course with examples of notes, photographs, movies, working model
Notes for all course materials
Kinematics and Dynamics: A machine design course with working model and Mathcad support
Complete design and simulation: gears
Student Pages: Examples of student work
Students can maintain own pages: link to student page
Paperless Marking: The marking procedure
Developing Web Pages: The general procedure
Where Next: Futuristic ideas
Students bring laptops and edit notes directly
Multiple sets of course notes for different learning styles
