Abstract

In Fall 1996, an NSF workshop on Engineering Economics and Design 1 was presented in conjunction with the Salt Lake City FIE Meeting. At that workshop, multimedia instructional material was used and given to the participants. In this paper, we present an outgrowth of that multimedia material - the development of a web site for engineering economics. The site is located at www.sie.arizona.edu/sie265. The site was first designed to supplement a one semester (45 hour) course and was then expanded to enable use as a stand-alone course. Materials included in the site include a set of lecture notes and alternate explanations, homework assignments and solutions, example exams and solutions, class organization, spreadsheet downloads for experimentation, learning tools for special topics, and links to sites with engineering economics data and topics. During the first semester of use with an accompanying lecture, students extensively evaluated the site and textual materials and the navigation interface were changed to be more effective. The site was used as a stand alone course during the summer 1998 term (5 weeks) and results on student outcomes from a final exam given to three student groups - no web usage, lecture-web usage, and web only usage is included. Usage statistics for various portions of the site from both groups and estimates of time on the system are also included.
