Abstract

A new project for the enhancement of undergraduate engineering courses via the use of computers in the classroom is being developed at Penn State University. This project involves the introduction of simulation and experiment in courses traditionally containing neither. The approach used in the renovation of this first course in Engineering Dynamics is described and compared to similar initiatives. A description of the strategy developed at Penn State is preceded by a brief history of the 'virtual classroom' concept, i.e., of an approach to education based on an intensive use of information technology.
