This paper studies the effect of using smart devices, like iPods and smartphones, running apps that record accelerometer data to teach topics in structural dynamics and structural health monitoring (SHM). Given that these are commonly advanced courses or research topics, the goal of this work is to create a learning module that employs increasingly commonplace smart devices to actively engage students in these topics and to provide a framework for further study in structural dynamics and damage detection in engineered structures. Survey results are presented to demonstrate student engagement with the topics and effectiveness of smart devices as a field or laboratory tool.
