The implementation of a multimedia learning environment for graduate civil engineers

By Chris Smith and Peter Jagodzinski


This paper examines the underpinning theory, design and implementation of a computer‐based Multimedia Learning Environment (MLE) for graduate civil engineers. The MLE brings together multimedia technology and Intelligent Tutoring Systems techniques for the purpose of developing in the graduate engineer the skills and understanding needed to produce initial design proposals for real‐world dam spillway design problems
