  • Interactive computer simulations for standing waves
    • Authors: Irina Radinschi; Vladut Fratiman, Vasilica Ciocan, Marius-Mihai Cazacu
      Abstract: Interactive computer simulations and learning environments like virtual laboratories come out as an excellent alternative to conventional physics laboratories. Two of the physics laboratories from the second semester within the Faculty of Civil Engineering and Building Services of “Gheorghe Asachi” Technical University are focused on the study of standing waves. Standing waves are very important in the field of Civil Engineering because the structural integrity of buildings can be affected by standing waves and the mechanical resonance phenomenon. A good understanding of the properties of standing waves will make the properly constructed structures withstand various risk factors. Some improperly constructed structures could damage or breakdown even in the presence of vibrations or strong winds. This paper presents the computer simulations developed for the study of the standing waves on a vibrating string and the propagation of electromagnetic standing waves in a Lecher system. For both simulations, the canvas element, part of HTML5 standard, is used to draw the graphics animations. Also, many control components and some external JavaScript libraries are used to perform the virtual applications. Further, these computer simulations are posted on the virtual physics laboratory web-site and thus, students are able to engage in more productive self or group activities. © 2017 Wiley Periodicals, Inc.

  • FTutor: An interactive guide to the fundamentals of frequency analysis
    • Authors: Petr Sečkář; David Svoboda
      Abstract: In image processing, the field of frequency analysis plays an important and irreplaceable role. Due to the knowledge of which frequencies correspond to which image characteristics, we can efficiently solve tasks such as smoothing, edge detection, regular pattern detection or removal, and image compression. Therefore, understanding of basic principles is of great importance for people working in fields requiring signal and image processing knowledge and skills. The key link between the standard image domain and frequency domain is provided by the well-known Fourier transform. Even though this transform is commonly understood as a standard framework for frequency analysis, proper understanding of its fundamentals is often hindered by many people's preoccupation with complex numbers and trigonometric functions. In this paper, we introduce a novel application called FTutor. It aims to serve as an interactive guide for those who are beginning to learn about the Fourier transform and want to properly understand its principles. In particular, FTutor is designed for use by the students and teachers of image processing courses to simplify and ease the process of understanding the frequency domain. The application is freely available from http://cbia.fi.muni.cz/projects/ftutor.html together with its source code. © 2017 Wiley Periodicals, Inc.

  • A multipurpose toolkit for teaching DSP in an undergraduate course
    • Authors: Diya Joseph; Prateek Chawla, Harish Chander, Tarun Kumar Rawat
      Abstract: Teaching an introductory course in Digital Signal Processing (DSP) involves the careful selection and arrangement of essential topics from the vast expanse of the subject. A substantial amount of effort from the teacher is required to deliver mathematical and algorithmic concepts. In this paper, we present a Windows Store App which can be used as a teaching aid for an introductory undergraduate DSP course. The app has six modules. Four of the modules demonstrate problems which require complex calculations, viz. linear convolution, circular convolution, radix-2 Fast Fourier Transform (FFT), and Finite Impulse Response (FIR) filter design. These modules display elaborate butterfly diagrams and matrix multiplications to enhance pedagogy. The other two modules form a digital signal processor toolkit based on a hypothetical 16-bit floating-point digital signal processor, with a simple instruction set. The app has been used to teach a course on DSP and a positive feedback was received from the students. © 2017 Wiley Periodicals, Inc Comput Appl Eng Educ; View this article online at wileyonlinelibrary.com/journal/cae;

  • Design of a low cost remote electronic laboratory suitable for low
           bandwidth connection
    • Authors: Hakima Mostefaoui; Abdelhalim Benachenhou, Abderrahmane Adda Benattia
      Abstract: The development of remote lab has grown during the last decade. However, almost all current laboratories use proprietary software (a Labview like software) and expensive hardware (server) to implement them. This paper presents the development of a low-cost alternative, flexible, and reconfigurable remote lab, based on an architecture built around an Arduino Mega. Low-bandwidth connections requirement was carried out by the use of HTML code for the development of the required graphical user interface. The usability and effectiveness of the proposed solutions were evaluated by considering a case study of two groups of students that carried out the same lab work: The first one remotely and the second one in a hands-on lab. This test showed that the remote laboratory was well received by students: Remote students group realize their task in a shorter time and have slightly better outcomes than students group in a hands-on laboratory. © 2017 Wiley Periodicals, Inc.

  • Remote refrigeration system experiments for control engineering education
    • Authors: Mirco Rampazzo; Andrea Cervato, Alessandro Beghi
      Abstract: The extension of the traditional hands-on laboratories to the Internet, in which labs are remotely accessible to the users to perform experiments, is still a challenge for education in engineering. In this paper, we present a remote refrigeration laboratory that allows students, trainees, and engineers to get acquainted with control aspects of mechanical refrigeration systems. Thanks to a university–industry partnership, the remote lab is hosted in an industrial site and it can be accessed by means of a client–server communication and an ad-hoc designed LabVIEW-based user interface, that allows to monitor and control the plant. The user can conduct both open- and closed-loop experiments on a typical vapor compression cycle refrigeration system, testing different control architectures that range from standard regulators to data-driven PID controllers.© 2017 Wiley Periodicals, Inc.

  • Web 2.0 applications for engineering education: Faculty members’
           perception, barriers, and solutions
    • Authors: Ataollah Zarei; Khairiyah Mohd-Yusof, Mohd Fadzil Daud, Nematollah Azizi
      Abstract: Despite increasing the number of engineering departments and students in Iran, the quality of education is less than satisfactory. Regarding the huge potential of Web 2.0 applications, which is also known as Web 2.0 tools, Web 2.0 services, or social media, for improving the quality of teaching and learning, this study was undertaken to investigate the perception of the faculty members toward using these technologies for teaching and learning engineering, the ways they use these tools for educational aims, and the factors that influence. The systematic design of grounded theory method was followed to achieve the research objectives. In addition, the required data was collected through interview and questionnaire and NVivo 8 software was used to facilitate data analysis process. The results show that the faculty members use some of these applications occasionally for the sole purpose of obtaining information. The traditional teaching method, which is influenced by the instructors’ traditional mindset, traditional curricula, and organizational disregard for the quality of teaching, are the most salient factors. Also, instructors’ emotional barriers and limited access to these tools in Iran are subsidiary factors influencing the failure to use these tools for teaching engineering. © 2017 Wiley Periodicals, Inc.d Comput Appl Eng Educ; View this article online at wileyonlinelibrary.com/journal/cae;

  • An Excel-based program to teach students quick ergonomic risk assessment
           techniques with an application to an assembly system
    • Authors: Adil Baykasoğlu; Sebnem Demirkol Akyol, Batuhan Demirkan
      Abstract: Governments force companies to stabilize ergonomic risk levels of the manufacturing environment and keep it below an acceptable risk level in order to prevent aftermaths. As a result, companies need more manufacturing engineers who are aware of ergonomics risk analysis. Thus, undergraduate students in the 3rd year in Industrial Engineering at Dokuz Eylül University are invited to take part in a real-life experience. This paper introduces an Excel-based program which is called Quick Ergonomic Assessment Techniques (QEAT); in order to support teaching students ergonomic risk assessment techniques; facilitate understanding characteristics of different techniques, and enable to compare the results of them. Three of the well-known ergonomic risk assessment techniques are coded in QEAT and applied on an electronics company which manufactures TV. The proposed QEAT procedure is easy to apply in various manufacturing environments and is suitable to be implemented in undergraduate engineering laboratories in order to support and encourage ergonomics study. The results show that by using the combination of three techniques in QEAT, an ergonomic risk assessment which covers most of the body areas could be presented and manufacturing environment could be reanalyzed easily if it is needed due to the changes in production processes. © 2017 Wiley Periodicals, Inc.

  • Bilingual subtitles for second-language acquisition and application to
           engineering education as learning pills
    • Authors: Boni García
      Abstract: This paper introduces the concept of bilingual subtitles, a kind of captioning in which a pair of subtitles (in the mother tongue, L1, and second language, L2) is shown at the same time on the screen. The aim of dual subtitles is to help the final user in different learning processes, due to the fact that several capacities (listening, reading, and matching) are exercised at the same time by the learner while watching dual-captioned media. The contribution of this paper is threefold. First, it presents DualSub, an open source desktop tool aimed to create bilingual subtitles. Second, a descriptive study was designed and executed to evaluate the extent to which bilingual subtitles are perceived by final users in the incidental vocabulary knowledge of a second language. Third, an experimental case study in which dual subtitles were used in the engineering education arena was carried out. The results of these surveys confirm that bilingual subtitles are perceived as useful in the different dimensions of the incidental vocabulary learning process (form, meaning, use) and are also helpful when applied to the educational domain (deliberate learning). © 2017 Wiley Periodicals, Inc.

  • A teaching–learning tool for elementary psychrometric processes on
           psychrometric chart using MATLAB
    • Authors: Pankaj Kumar Gupta; R. N. Patel
      Abstract: A teaching–learning tool for elementary psychrometric processes on psychrometric chart is developed using MATLAB. First, coding was done in MATLAB to represent the psychrometric chart showing various properties. Secondly, calculations for obtaining various psychrometric parameters of air–water vapor mixture given any two input parameters were coded. Graphical user interface (GUI) was created for user input while the various elementary psychrometric processes are output on psychrometric chart prepared using MATLAB. The software tool was thoroughly validated against results in open literature. Students in different groups were taught basics of Psychrometry with different teaching approaches. Student group exposed to teaching with the developed tool performed much better than other groups. Students’ response in a survey revealed that the MATLAB-based teaching–learning tool increased students’ performance significantly over the conventional approach. © 2017 Wiley Periodicals, Inc.

  • Teaching real-time video processing theory by using an FPGA-based
           educational system and the “learning-by-doing” method
    • Authors: Enrique Guzmán-Ramírez; Ivan Garcia, Carlos González, Manuel Mendoza-Manzano
      Abstract: In the present study, we introduce a FPGA-based educational system called RELI-EVA (REconfigurable-Logic-based system for Implementation and Evaluation of real-time Video processing and analysis of Algorithms), which has been integrated into a Computer and Electronic Engineering course by following the “learning-by-doing” approach. Therefore, the aim of this system is to provide engineering students with an intuitive tool in order to understand the main algorithms for real-time video processing and create and test some new algorithms before their real implementation in physical systems. Moreover, with the aim of demonstrating the potential of the developed FPGA-based system, the development of a practical example for edge detection is presented in order to support the theoretical basis of real-time video processing. Additionally, a qualitative research method was followed to evaluate the proposed tool. A high percentage of the surveyed students corroborated the success of RELI-EVA as part of an engineering course. © 2017 Wiley Periodicals, Inc.

  • A Matlab workbook on the pedagogy of generalized eigenvectors
    • Authors: P. M. Shankar
      Abstract: The pedagogical aspects of generalized eigenvectors are demonstrated using a Matlab workbook. With the simple input of a square matrix, the workbook displays the theoretical background, classifies the matrix as defective or non-defective, and processes the matrix further. It obtains the algebraic and geometric multiplicities, and identifies the eigenvalues making the matrix defective. The generalized eigenvectors are calculated and displayed, every step fully annotated to bring out the didactic aspects. These include reiteration of the multiplicities and association of specific eigenvalues with eigenvector and generalized eigenvectors. Unlike simple Matlab scripts that provide eigenvalues and eigenvectors without validation, the workbook generates the matrix exponential using eigenvalues and eigenvectors and compares it to matrix exponentials obtained using inverse Laplace transforms and directly in Matlab. The workbook with annotations, verification and displays matching instructor's classroom work can be expected to enhance the understanding of eigenvectors, generalized eigenvectors, multiplicities, fundamental matrix, and matrix exponential. © 2017 Wiley Periodicals, Inc.

  • Pedagogy of solutions to a set of linear equations using a Matlab workbook
    • Authors: P. Mohana Shankar
      Abstract: A Matlab workbook capable of generating complete solutions to a set of linear equations is presented. While standard routines in Matlab and Maple provide solutions to a set of equations, additional work is needed to interpret and relate them to the concepts covered in an undergraduate course in Linear Algebra. One also runs into difficulties when the system of equations is inconsistent. The workbook, started as a simple demo for students, evolved into its present form where the solutions to a set of linear equations are displayed on a single page with explanations, annotations, and equations that match the work by the instructor in class. Regardless of whether the system is consistent or inconsistent with general or unique solutions, the solution set is presented with information such as the rank of a matrix, pivots, null space, free and basic variables, etc., providing the pedagogy. The solutions are compared to those obtained using standard packages from Matlab and Maple demonstrating their shortcomings and limits. In contrast, the results of the workbook provide complete instructive aspects of solutions to a set of linear equations enhancing the educational experience of students. © 2017 Wiley Periodicals, Inc.

  • Spreadsheets for understanding seismic energy partitioning equations
    • Authors: Anees Ahmad Bangash; Khalid Amin Khan, Gulraiz Akhter
      Abstract: Spreadsheets have come a long way and have become a universal computational tool and a powerful platform for performing scientific and engineering calculations. Their inherent strength lies in integrated storage and manipulation of data, together with a wide range of calculations, charting, and graphics presentation capabilities. These facilities make them ideal tools for prototyping mathematical equations and algorithms that can be adapted for instructional purposes to improve the quality of engineering education. This paper presents a set of spreadsheets that help in understanding the mathematical details behind the Zoeppritz equations and their various approximations that describe the partitioning of seismic wave energy at a planar interface between two homogeneous isotropic and elastic layers of rock. © 2017 Wiley Periodicals, Inc.

  • Incorporation of 3D ICT elements into class
    • Authors: Francisco Javier Ayala Alvarez; Elidia Beatriz Blázquez Parra, Francisco Montes-Tubío
      Abstract: The fact that there are relatively few job prospects has caused a decline in the vocational profile of students in engineering, while they demand more dynamic and attractive classes. Moreover, the difficulty of the concepts to be transmitted, together with the lack of good spatial visualization abilities of students, makes technical drawing a difficult subject to understand. The present study set out to investigate emerging trends in ICT to find a way to present and manipulate information in class that would serve as both a stimulating element and a tool for performing complex operations, thus improving the teaching methodology of the classes and enhancing students’ motivation. We present the results of an experimental study of the introduction of 3D augmented reality models for practical classes in technical drawing. Several measures are collected for the monitoring of the course by students, and for their motivation, according to the ARCS method. The results indicate a good response to the elements incorporated into first year classes of a university course in Graphic Expression in Engineering. In particular, the experimental group displayed a higher level of motivation, an increased attendance to practical classes, a higher rate of practical work delivered, and a lower percentage of dropouts. © 2017 Wiley Periodicals, Inc Comput Appl Eng Educ View this article online at wileyonlinelibrary.com/journal/cae;

  • A practice for engineering students based on the control and monitoring an
           experimental biomass combustor using labview
    • Authors: ARACELI REGUEIRO; DAVID PATIÑO, CARLA MÍGUEZ, MIGUEL CUEVAS
      Abstract: The methods delineated herein enable students to acquire new knowledge and competences at a high academic level in an independent manner and to demonstrate competence in the current concepts and theories governing energy flows, heat transfer, and energy conversions. These methods have been used in the Energy Thermal Master class that is offered in the Engineering School at the University of Vigo. The study presents an innovative learning method in which two new pedagogical concepts are combined, “learning by doing” and “blended learning,” implying a modernization of the classical learning methods. Using the methodology described below, students are able to operate a biomass experimental as well as use numerous measuring devices to obtain the combustion parameters, which are the latest commercial technology. Furthermore, by using LabVIEW programming, students are able to realize the importance of automation in the facilities and to create a code that is responsible for the control, supervision and monitoring of the system. In addition to the purely experimental aspect, students must analyze the data acquired by LabVIEW, apply their theoretical knowledge and exchange data with other groups, improving their teamwork skills. © 2017 Wiley Periodicals, Inc.

  • VGLS: A virtual geophysical laboratory system based on C# and viustools
           and its application for geophysical education
    • Authors: Shiming Xiang; Lei Chuang Wang
      Abstract: It is not hard to find that the forms of traditional education have limitations. The Virtual Laboratory is to provide a virtual experimental environment to the users via computers in controlling engineering by resorting to the virtual reality technology. It was famous for helping students study the complex process of experiments as well as saving time and cost. Therefore, in the new century, it has become more popular as a means of education. In this paper, we present a virtual geophysical laboratory system (VGLS) based on C#, Viustools, and database technology which can make geophysical education more efficient and effective. Besides, practice has proved that VGLS is a kind of flexible, convenient, and interactive system which can help the users understand and master the laboratory equipment and experimental procedures as well as enhance the efficiency of teaching and learning. In general, it was a practical platform that can be an alternative means of traditional experiments in education which can also meet the requirements of geophysical education. © 2017 Wiley Periodicals, Inc.

  • MonitTDPA: A tool for monitoring the tracing of dynamic programming
           algorithms
    • Authors: Hazem M. Bahig; Ahmed Y. Khedr
      Pages: 179 - 187
      Abstract: Algorithms are important procedures that are found in every aspect in our life. Large numbers of these algorithms cannot be accurately understood unless they are presented differently, especially if they are taught to students. A complete visualization system is created to teach dynamic programming algorithms. Through visualization, a student is able to trace the algorithm step-by-step, similar to the debugger, but in a simplified way. In addition, the system can handle errors during the execution of the algorithm. Moreover, the system guides and helps the students during the tracing and stores all of the information about the errors during the tracing. The students obtain the feedback of the tracing from a report generated by the system. The teacher benefits from the generated report through the enhancement of the teaching methods that focus on the misunderstood steps. Additionally, the system allows the user to see how a certain algorithm can be monitored by displaying the source code. The developed system is evaluated using different methods to prove the effectiveness of the system in teaching and learning.© 2017 Wiley Periodicals, Inc.

  • An easy to use open source authoring tool to create effective and reusable
           learning objects
    • Authors: Aldo Gordillo; Enrique Barra, Juan Quemada
      Pages: 188 - 199
      Abstract: Authoring tools play a crucial role in the development of learning content facilitating the creation of Learning Objects. However, not much work has been done in order to determine if educators actually can use these tools to create effective and reusable Learning Objects in an easy way. This paper address this issue by presenting and evaluating an open source authoring tool called ViSH Editor. Three factors were evaluated: the usability and user acceptance of the authoring tool, the quality and learning effectiveness of the created Learning Objects, and the reusability of these resources. Usability was evaluated through a lab test and the user acceptance with a survey among 180 users. Quality evaluation was conducted using LORI (Learning Object Review Instrument). The learning effectiveness was evaluated through learner surveys and test scores. Finally, reusability was evaluated by using the LORI instrument, by measuring metadata quality using a set of metrics, and by a quantitative analysis of reuse. Results show that ViSH Editor is an authoring tool capable of allowing educators to create effective and reusable Learning Objects in an easy way. © 2017 Wiley Periodicals, Inc.

  • Investigating code quality tools in the context of software engineering
           education
    • Authors: Danilo Silva; Ingrid Nunes, Ricardo Terra
      Pages: 230 - 241
      Abstract: A key issue involved with software engineering education consists of how to guarantee that adequate software engineering principles are being followed at the code level, thus reinforcing that students produce high-quality code. Reviewing and grading student projects to verify whether they followed such principles is a time-consuming task, since this typically involves manual code inspection. In this paper, we exploit code quality tools and metrics to automatically assess student projects with respect to methods with many responsibilities (i.e., where the Extract Method refactoring should be applied), and evaluate their effectiveness. We conducted a study using two sets of student projects, developed in two academic semesters. Our results indicate that, to reduce the effort required to grade projects, two traditional code metrics, namely method lines of code and number of statements, perform best, and other metrics can be selected according to the system being implemented. © 2016 Wiley Periodicals, Inc.

      Pages: 242 - 263
      Abstract: This paper discusses how the software development team at the German Jordanian University (GJU) adopted the project management and software development processes in the ISO/IEC 29110 series to implement a complex Student Information System (SIS). Specifically, it identifies the key points to be taken into consideration in the analysis, design, implementation, testing, and deployment phases during the iterative and incremental SIS development process. The SIS is a distributed three-tier web-based application that enables registrars to perform various tasks such as system setup, admission, registration, grades processing, graduation, and reporting. It was launched in the first 2015/2016 semester and enabled administration to maintain a comfortable learning environment, assess instructor performance, enhance teaching practices, and improve course content. The results of the system measurements and user survey assert that the SIS is feature rich, easy to use, fast, reliable, stable, highly available, and scalable. © 2017 Wiley Periodicals, Inc.

      Abstract: In this paper, an emulation based electrical drive laboratory for graduate and undergraduate power engineering students and practicing engineers is presented. The virtual laboratory is realized by means of Hardware-In-the-Loop (HIL) system, which is increasingly recognized as an effective approach in the design of power electronics control. Control of induction motor, as the most widely used machine including main and side effects is examined. In order to perform experiments gradually, software development framework which provides modular and incremental DSP programming possibilities (from basic to advanced levels) is given. Digital controller design procedure combined with appropriate emulated power stage, and followed by experimental results is presented in detail. In addition to conventional test procedure, scripting method implemented through Application Programming Interface (API) is shown. The benefits of remote laboratory approach is described in the case of collaboration of multiple teams. The proposed approach can be used as additional or completely self-contained tool for research and education of electrical drive control. © 2017 Wiley Periodicals, Inc.

      Pages: 277 - 289
      Abstract: With the emergence of computers, literatures of water distribution network (WDN), and application of computer-aided programs for modeling WDNs have been significantly improved. Although MATLAB and Excel spreadsheet provide suitable facilities for both academic and practical purposes, the comprehensive application of these programs in WDN analysis has not been addressed. In this paper, the step-by-step implementation of three Q-based methods is presented for solving WDNs using these programs. In order to focus more on the educational aspects of computer application, a simple pipe network is analyzed using these Q-based methods. However, as basics of the implementation are sufficiently covered, the provided codes can be improved to analyze more complicated pipe networks. © 2017 Wiley Periodicals, Inc.

      Pages: 304 - 310
      Abstract: A Microsoft-Excel spreadsheet was developed using Visual Basic for Applications (VBA) functions to calculate fundamental wave properties using linear wave theory, simple wave transformations, tidal elevations, tsunami travel time, wind wave growth parameters, design wave heights using Raleigh's probability distribution, breakwater dimensions, and longshore sediment transport rates. This spreadsheet was used in teaching an undergraduate coastal engineering course. The students were found to be motivated to study the subject matter with the help of VBA functions and develop their own applications in coastal engineering. This spreadsheet may be helpful to the practicing engineers as well for calculations relevant to some important wave parameters that are used in the design of coastal structures. © 2017 Wiley Periodicals, Inc.

  • An introduction to FE analysis with Excel-VBA
    • Authors: Keiji Yanase
      Pages: 311 - 319
      Abstract: Aimed primarily for educational use, an effective platform for 2-dimensional FE stress analysis was developed by making use of the Excel-VBA program. With the undergraduate students as the target group, the educational emphasis was placed on the practical application of linear elasticity and the proper use of the FE method. As a part of the project, the students were requested to solve a stress concentration problem by conducting mesh convergence study using Excel-VBA functionality. They generated the mesh manually by drawing the figures on the grid-paper. This time consuming experience is usually sufficiently memorable to provide the student with the sense of the required mesh size for proper FE analysis. In addition, the use of tabular data in Excel allows the students to easily conduct the FE analysis. Further, the reports by students clearly manifest that the reliability of the FE method is highly dependent on the experience and the theoretical knowledge of the engineer. In sum, Excel-VBA is a highly efficient tool for introducing the FE method and can motivate the students to study this subject further. © 2017 Wiley Periodicals, Inc.

  • Effective reuse and sharing of best teaching practices
    • Authors: Amal Al-Rasheed; Jawad Berri
      Pages: 163 - 178
      Abstract: The widespread use of computer technologies in education has reshaped the roles of instructors, who are encouraged to innovate interactive forms of technology-supported instruction that promote participation and collaboration. This in turn engenders new experiences of teaching that need to be gathered and capitalized as teaching assets to be shared among communities of instructors. Among these experiences, best teaching practices (BTPs) are instructional practices accumulated in teaching that have been proven to work well, give good results, and can therefore be recommended as a model. Identifying and sharing best practices means duplicating successes which help instructors learn from each other and deliver better quality teaching. This paper presents a knowledge management framework for acquiring, coding, sharing, and reusing BTPs. To encourage instructors’ participation, the framework is based on peer scoring of BTPs, which stimulates contribution and interaction. The framework has been implemented as a knowledge portal that allows instructors to create, store, search, and share BTPs and to receive feedback and comments from other users, providing many useful functionalities and services to users as individuals and communities. The paper presents also a real-life case study, lessons learned from using the system within a community of instructors, and a system evaluation of the effectiveness of reusing BTPs using the reuse effort and impact metrics. © 2016 Wiley Periodicals, Inc.
