Animated visual models to enhance student understanding of complex processes
online resourceposted on 20.07.2011, 13:46 by Phil Barker
This report concerns use by a tutor of computer simulations to provide animated demonstrations of complex concepts and processes during lectures. These simulations are intended to allow students to see the operation of the systems and algorithms being described as clearly as possible and thus enhance the students' motivation and their understanding of the topic. This evaluation covers the use of the simulations for a second year module on communications theory which is taken by students studying for a variety of electronics engineering degrees.
