Introduction This paper describes a novel 3D web-browser enabled multimedia library, with active code for teaching and learning about engineering, and other, process risk analysis.
The purpose of this library is to be able to work with, and learn from real-life R&D and industrial challenges, including best practices, with the intention of reducing risks, getting things done using sound methods, technologies and collaborative peer group experience as support mechanisms.
The audience of this library is engineering science and technology students, engineering management students, design, industrial engineering, design and process engineers, IT students / professionals, as well as biomedical engineering and medical science students.
At its most fundamental level, our library is a • Knowledge documentation method, architecture, tool and resource, an • Instructional method characterized by the integrated approach to engineering, science, management, IT, and medical sciences, in which we use challenging 'real world' problems as a context for students (and professionals) to learn critical thinking and problem solving skills, and acquire knowledge of the essential concepts of the course, • Supported by web-enabled, novel 3DVR (three dimensional virtual reality) interactive multimedia, as well as by • Active code provided as tools for performing calculations, such as risk analysis, and others, and collaborative analytical reasoning, and with optional self-assessment tools, again integrated with novel 3D interactive objects, as well as text, digital videos and animation, and • Live, and/or on-line tutor support in an asynchronous fashion.
The driving force behind this challenging integrated case-based learning method is the
