On-Line Electrical Machinery Course Development for University Enrolled Students and Industry RepresentativesThe rapidly evolving technological world requires engineering skills being up-to-date andrelevant. This applies to industry employed workers, as well as the students pursuing collegedegree. To keep up with the rapid developments in technology the industry representatives needconstantly update their knowledge base. From the other hand, the current economy impacts thecollege students in a way that many undergraduates have to work to secure the funds for theireducation which in turn requires a more flexible class schedule. In order to accommodate theneeds of both groups: the university enrolled students and industry representative, theeducational units must adequately adjust their curriculum. Electrical and Computer EngineeringTechnology program in the School of Technology at UNIVERSITY is constantly revamping thecurriculum to meet the expectations of industry by supplying qualified technicians andtechnologists who have extensive hands-on experience. To further enhance and make thecurriculum model more flexible, all programs across in the School of Technology are developingand offering online courses in multiple disciplines. In this article we emphasize our attention onthe online Electrical Machinery course development and implementation model for currentlyenrolled in the UNIVERSITY students and industry representatives looking to improve theirknowledge in the subject. The online Electrical Machinery course will be offered in Track A ofsummer 2012 and will consist of the online learning modulus, online quizzes and exams, andintense laboratories. Due to the hands-on nature of educational strategy, the laboratorycomponent is an integral part of any course offered in the School of Technology, and thediscussed in this article the on-line Electrical Machinery course is no exception. The enrolledstudents will participate in two intense laboratory sessions scheduled during the weekends.Considering the seven weeks duration of the Track A, the two laboratory session will beconducted after the third and six weeks consecutively. Prior each laboratory session, theparticipating students will require to take multiple quizzes specifically designed to test theirknowledge in the subject matters being exercised in the laboratory activities.In this articles we discuss the details of the on-line course structure including the theoreticaltopics and experimental exercises of the course, the technology that has been used for the on-linematerials development, and the implementation of the assessment tools to evaluate the studentsprogress.
