Resum


The objective of this research is to complement and enhanced traditional tutorial teaching and learning by incorporating multimedia technology. In this case study, the development of a PC base virtual experiment for mechanics dynamics problem involving the motion of a projectile that is taught in the second year of the mechanical engineering undergraduate course at University Tenaga Nasional (UNITEN) is described. The developed prototype tool was found to be effective in promoting learning and the outcome of this research revealed that multimedia approach enhanced user understanding of the underlying theory of engineering mechanics, promote interactivity as well as visualization and users are able to solve engineering problem such as motion of a projectile quickly and efficiently.
