Abstract


Engineering courses could benefit from thesystematic use of interactive computational resources tosupport teaching of introductory disciplines. In this paperwe present iLM (interactive Learning Modules), which arecontent specific, multiplatform, software to improve theteaching and learning process. Such components could beeasily incorporated to Learning and Content ManagementSystems, through the implementation of a few methods.Therefore, based on experiments conducted with middle andhigh school students, we propose the use of iLM as tool formotivating such students to engage in Computer Science,Engineering, and Technology (CSET) careers, as well asphysics and mathematics ones. Moreover, we outline the useof existent iLM during introductory CSET courses.Index Terms ⎯ Educational Software, Interactive LearningModule, Interactive Geometry, Learning and ContentManagement Systems.
