Abstract

The Department of Architectural Engineering at Penn State University is committed to adopting learning-based Information and Communication Technologies as a part of the senior capstone design experience, a yearlong course sequence taken by all fifth year students. The pilot program of this educationally motivated initiative focuses on the application of student-generated electronic portfolios. These web-based portfolios, called Capstone Project Electronic Portfolios, will provide a multi-faceted benefit to the students, the faculty, the department, and potential employees of AE graduates. This paper will introduce the initiative and provide insight into effectively utilizing modern technologies for teaching and learning in engineering capstone design courses.
