Many mechanical engineering subjects require students to model, analyze, or simulate dynamic phenomena (physics, kinematics, heat transfer, fluid flow, etc. ). The standard tools for instructing these topics fall short of being dynamic, however. A recent pilot project using the Plato system to supplement lectures in a mechanisms analysis and synthesis course proved very successful by providing an interactive, dynamic display. This ″dynamic blackboard″ is an effective tool to help update instructional techniques.
