Creation and Evaluation of Educational Tools for E-Learning Based on Videomodels

Matthias Carlier, An Braeken, Clémence Flémal, Francis Gueuning, Abdellah Touhafi


We describe the design of a web platform supporting virtual experiments in electronics or electrics. The underlying methodology for the experiments are the videomodels. These models represent a 3D visualization of electronic and electrical circuits. From an earlier initiative, it was known that interactivity and documentation are very important issues. We show how the latest features from HTML5 are used to increase the interactivity and include several balloons, instruction videos, and guided exercises on the platform.
In a second phase, we tested the platform with two groups of students, being students with and without earlier experience in videomodels. The overall results in both groups were very positive and presented an enormous improvement on efficiency and clearness, compared to a previous attempt.
