Learning and Teaching Mechanical Engineering Courses with Blended Learning Environment - Higher Order Application of Bloom’s Taxonomy.

By Salah Mahdi Abdulrasool and Rakesh Mishra


Mechanical Engineering students who learn how to design and analyse usually experience complex and /or abstract aspects that they may not be able to fully understand without additional tutorial lessons or further explanations. For example, to learn construction of manufacturing, at Higher Order of Cognitive Skills (HOCS)\ud of Bloom’s Taxonomy, students need to visualize materials and sequences of construction process. This paper presents the development and implementation of a computer tutoring software, this method of teaching, named ‘learning with blended environment’, is designed to assist students in thoroughly understanding and effectively mastering teaching material. The tutoring software was used to teach mechanical engineering course at Sheikh Khalifa Institute of Technology in Bahrain. The evaluation of the effectiveness of the tutoring tool is also\ud discussed
