Abstract

In this work an introduction to the main design features of a computer-aided educational package addressed to students of the final years of Electronic and Computer Engineering is presented. The Software includes interrelated tutorial, computer simulations and test questions, in which graphical outputs, hypertexts and animations are widely used. The package is devoted to the simulation study the concepts and propagation electromagnetic waves. It provides instant numerical evaluation and a graphical display of different studies. The software presented in this paper has all the following features: an integrative character, personalized and active learning process, adaptability to teacher’s aims, versatility as a teaching tool, multimedia resources and simplicity. This study has been carried out with final-year students at the Superior Polytechnic School of Cordoba (Spain), with highly favourable results when compared with students who did not use the software.
