Implementation of e-learning platform for electrical engineering
Present engineering has to deal with increasingly complex systems. In particular, this is the case of electrical engineering. Though, this is obvious in microelectronics, also in the field of power systems the engineers have to design, operate and maintain highly complex systems such as power grids, energy converters and electrical drives. This is reflected in engineering education, where teachers try to communicate the many aspects of complex systems and where students try to learn and deal with this complexity. In this paper, a program of computer animations is discussed, that was originally and primarily designed for teachers and to be used during traditional lectures. It was found out however, that these animations could be very well used for self-study purposes provided a good instruction and clear assignments were given. The introduction of new technologies (e.g. ICT) into teaching of Electrical Engineering, and setting up and technical aspects of e-learning platform for Electrical Engineering are addressed in the paper.
