The paper introduces a concept for utilisation of ICT in teaching of subjects from field of mechatronics, namely mechatronics of production systems that in our case are represented by industrial production lines processing continuous strip materials. These production lines occur in various areas of industry, e.g. paper making machines (paper strip), rolling mills (steel strip), and production lines in chemical industry (plastic material), etc. Such systems are rather complex and their explanation using multimedia is extremely suitable and visible. What is to be explained in the modules: principle of setting up mathematical models of the mechanical subsystems, electrical equipment (electrical machines, electrical drives, and power electronics converters) of production machines, and finally, control systems with implemented control algorithms (up to the artificial intelligence algorithms). In detail there are presented two modules – one form field of setting up mathematical models of mechanical subsystems and the second one from field of production lines. The topics of the modules deal with generalisation of basic principles of the real existing production and finishing lines whose study usually requires practical trainings in industry.
