Abstract

Asynchronous Use of Engineering (Materials) Education VideosAbstractEngineering education is dynamic and increasingly asynchronous. An observation that studentshad such different levels of knowledge and skills as they progressed through our programs, ledthe authors to use audio/visual media as an ameliorating intervention.One specific need reflected the ignorance of our majority component of ‘transfer’ students in ourprograms. Some students simply did not have familiarity with the equipment at our facility (asopposed to their previous experiences elsewhere). In this study, the authors target one skillrelated to metallurgy (welding band saw blades).There were two interesting aspects to this effort. The first involves the creation of audio/visualcontent because of the many forms (resolution), lengths (venues), and content (audience). Thesecond aspect of interest was the effectiveness of the effort. This was primarily measured inaccess (viewing ‘hits’ in the different venues). Some observations included a surprising amountof external access (not connected with the university).
