Waleed Khalil Ahmed, Essam Zaneldin

Abstract


With the advances of the technology at the last decade, it becomes an essential for teachers to utilize recent advances in technology to enhance learning. Currently, educators are using different software and blended approaches to facilitate better class environments and make course material available to students anytime anywhere. This paper presents the diverse learning technologies used by the Faculty of Engineering at the United Arab Emirates University for teaching pre-engineering freshman students using Blackboard and classroom new technologies. Multiple approaches are adopted and presented in this paper to boost studentsâ?? learning and make course material readily available for all students. These e-learning techniques were used to enhance the teaching of different courses at the foundation level of the faculty of engineering, basically Engineering Materials, Differential Equations and Engineering Applications and eventually Engineering Thermodynamic. Feedback acquired through the students, the result of utilizing the e-learning techniques showed interesting experience and improved students learning abilities.
