Abstract

Purpose The paper's purpose is to promote the use of modern technologies such as multimedia packages to engineering students. The aim is to help them to learning in their learning, visualization, problem solving and understanding engineering concepts such as in mechanics dynamics.Designmethodologyapproach TAPS packages are developed to help students solve selected engineering problems in a stepbystep approach. A comparison is made with existing commercial engineering packages to see if TAPS packages could further enhance the learning process.Findings The differences found were indicative of better presentation and clarity, stepbystep approach to solve engineering problems, userfriendly environment, unbiased assessment of performance and flexibility to incorporate 3D geometric models in the TAPS packages.Research limitationsimplications The TAPS packages were compared with two commercial engineering packages and were based on a small number of users. A larger sample size of students would be required to see if TAPS packages are productive enough to be used locally in Malaysian universities and higher learning institutions.Originalityvalue The main originality of the paper can be seen from the development of the TAPS packages and the comparative study with existing commercial engineering packages. The differences found are explained in details in this paper.
