MULTIMEDIA AND WEBCASTING IN ENGINEERING EDUCATION: CASE STUDIES

R. Robert Gajewski

Abstract


The paper presents case studies of usage ofmultimedia and webcasting in engineering education.Technology Enhanced Learning should not be veryexpensive, what is proved in the paper. According to Dale’sCone of Experience there is a big need of multimedia ineducation, also in the field of engineering. Multimedia in theform of podcasting (personal on demand broadcasting) canbe very useful as supplementary tool for lectures andsoftware training, but they have one common drawback –they do not allow for two way communication. Webcastingin which media file is distributed mainly live over Internetenables two way communication.
