What do Students Get Out of Solid Modeling Video Demonstrations?GC 120 – Foundations of Graphics is an introductory engineering graphics course at [universityname]. A majority of the students enrolled in the course are completing their second year ofcoursework in engineering. The course consists of a hybrid format containing online instructionthrough video lectures and demonstrations coupled with face-to-face class time with aninstructor. The course utilizes the Moodle learning management system to organize anddistribute course resources to the students.The researchers are studying the efficiency of knowledge transfer between concepts presentedwithin the online solid modeling demonstrations and submitted student work. For this research,data will be collected from twenty students who all watched the solid modeling demonstrationsand who were taught by the same instructor. Data will be collected and analyzed to betterunderstand when students viewed the software demonstrations in relation to when they submittedassignments. The analysis involves assessing student work based upon rubrics which stateimplicit and explicit concepts present within the video lectures. Student work will be selected ina manner that will assess near transfer of knowledge and concepts (i.e., simply following thevideo verbatim) along with farther transfers of concepts where students do similar work withoutthe assistance of step-by-step instruction from the video demonstrations supporting solidmodeling.This research will allow the instructors to better understand whether or not the students recognizeand apply the concepts that are valued by faculty. The researchers also can determine theefficiency of the resources supporting solid modeling individually and also across the course.This knowledge will further allow for critical analysis to improve support of knowledge andconcept transfer of constraint-based solid modeling for students.
