Chen, Huai-Yi; Wu, Chien-Ming; Lai, Chiung-Hui – IEEE Transactions on Education, 2019
Contribution: Prior studies indicate that students experimenting with characterization of optical planar waveguides use expensive ready-made prism couplers without clear understanding about construction of the entire optical measurement system. This paper presents a cost-effective modified bright-mode prism coupler that helps students learn…

Marques, Maira; Ochoa, Sergio F.; Bastarrica, Maria Cecilia; Gutierrez, Francisco J. – IEEE Transactions on Education, 2018
Carrying out real-world software projects in their academic studies helps students to understand what they will face in industry, and to experience first-hand the challenges involved when working collaboratively. Most of the instructional strategies used to help students take advantage of these activities focus on supporting agile programming,…

Clark, Renee M.; Mahboobin, Arash – IEEE Transactions on Education, 2018
Background: Engineering programs must equip students to solve open-ended workplace problems. However, the literature points to actual or potential difficulties faced by students in solving open-ended or complex problems. During Fall 2014, the authors' students experienced difficulties in solving open-ended bio-signals laboratory problems of…

Goncalves, Rafael Queiroz; von Wangenheim, Christiane A. Gresse; Hauck, Jean C. R.; Zanella, Andreia – IEEE Transactions on Education, 2018
Contribution: An approach is presented to provide contextualized feedback for students using a project management (PM) tool. This approach covers the ten PM knowledge areas, guiding students through the planning of software projects. Background: Because software PM is unfeasible without the support of a PM tool there is a growing demand that these…

Bozanic, Mladen; Sinha, Saurabh – IEEE Transactions on Education, 2018
Contribution: This paper brings forward a paradigm shift in microelectronic and nanoelectronic engineering education. Background: An increasing number of universities are offering graduate-level electrical engineering degree programs with multi-disciplinary Master's-level specialization in microelectronics or nanoelectronics. The paradigm shift…

Chevalier, Amélie; Copot, Cosmin; Ionescu, Clara; De Keyser, Robin – IEEE Transactions on Education, 2017
This paper discusses the results of a feedback study for a remote laboratory used in the education of control engineering students. The goal is to show the effectiveness of the remote laboratory on examination results. To provide an overview, the two applications of the remote laboratory are addressed: 1) the Stewart platform, and 2) the quadruple…

Garcia-Zubia, Javier; Cuadros, Jordi; Romero, Susana; Hernandez-Jayo, Unai; Orduña, Pablo; Guenaga, Mariluz; Gonzalez-Sabate, Lucinio; Gustavsson, Ingvar – IEEE Transactions on Education, 2017
Remote laboratories give students the opportunity of experimenting in STEM by using the Internet to control and measure an experimental setting. Remote laboratories are increasingly used in the classroom to complement, or substitute for, hands-on laboratories, so it is important to know its learning value. While many authors approach this question…

Rambocas, Meena; Sastry, Musti K. S. – IEEE Transactions on Education, 2017
Some education specialists are challenging the use of traditional strategies in classrooms and are calling for the use of contemporary teaching and learning techniques. In response to these calls, many field experiments that compare different teaching and learning strategies have been conducted. However, to date, little is known on the outcomes of…

Gil, Arturo; Peidró, Adrián; Reinoso, Óscar; Marín, José María – IEEE Transactions on Education, 2017
This paper presents a tool, LABEL, oriented to the teaching of parallel robotics. The application, organized as a set of tools developed using Easy Java Simulations, enables the study of the kinematics of parallel robotics. A set of classical parallel structures was implemented such that LABEL can solve the inverse and direct kinematic problem of…
