Establishing a Web-Based Dual-Rating System to Centralize and Evaluate Educational Resources for Undergraduate Nuclear Engineering CoursesSupplemental educational learning resources such as PowerPoint presentations, animations,instructional video clips, and simulations are important tools that could impact student learningof the subject matter. Nuclear engineering courses often contain obscure and complex topics thatneed further explanation using visualization techniques or additional learning resources. TheInternet contains a wealth of information about various topics of nuclear engineering. However,this information is widely scattered and has not yet been evaluated how effective it is to studentlearning.At XXXX University, we have initiated a comprehensive project to collect various learningmaterials related to the field of nuclear engineering and health physics from the Internet andtopically organize them for an easy access. In addition, we have created a dual-rating system foreach learning resource: one by instructors and the other by students. In this way, students couldmake a more informed decision for accessing/downloading learning resources. Web pages havebeen designed to implement the above system. For each learning resource web link, a briefdescription (one-to-two-line long) is also provided.This paper describes the methods used to construct a web template regarding educationalresources for undergraduate nuclear and health physics topics. The template will be converted toweb pages that will be placed online for student access world-wide.
