Videoconference Teaching for Applied Engineering Technology Students


The development of a fully-interactive videoconference teaching facility for Applied Engineering Technology (AET) students is described in this work. This facility will provide greater program delivery flexibility by offering a non-traditional educational approach that expands student’s horizons. The new facility will allow all AET students at Drexel, as well as students at remote locations, to participate in the same educational and training process. By expanding training opportunities to students who might not otherwise take advantage of them, due to distance and time, this facility helps reduce the shortage of trained specialists in applied electrical, mechanical, and manufacturing technology. The videoconference teaching courses will be designed for undergraduate AET students and may also be taken by other undergraduate/graduate students at Drexel or by the students of other universities and community colleges who have fulfilled the necessary prerequisites and desire to pursue a BS degree in AET. The inter-institutional class sessions will be carried out utilizing Internet II-based resources providing increased bandwidth for use with high-end video and test equipment of Drexel’s AET electrical, electronics, and manufacturing laboratories. Through remote operation, expensive equipment of the AET laboratories, such as the electronics laboratory, nondestructive evaluation of materials laboratory, and web-enabled robotic assembly station, will be accessible to institutions that cannot afford the equipment directly and which do not have faculty with sufficient expertise and training in these specific AET areas.


The main objective of the proposed project is to develop a videoconference teaching facility for Applied Engineering Technology (AET) students, which will provide greater program delivery flexibility and offer non-traditional educational segments that expand student’s horizons 1, 2, 3. One of the major goals of the AET program is to introduce students to the experimental
