Description: This presentation from MATEC explains the transition from using software to getting hands-on experience in a lab. The laboratory setting in technology related courses is an integral part of the learning experience for the student. It takes the theory that is being learned in the lecture and applies that theory. The text books that are used in the lecture include a copy of either Multi Sim or Electronic Workbench. The software gives the student the ability to "build" the circuits that are under study without the hardware that is found in the lab. The students at Grambling State University are not utilizing the software in the beginning level classes. The students must start utilizing the software earlier in the educational career. To accomplish this, the students are starting to complete the lab assignments with software before going to the lab. By doing this, the students will know what to expect before starting lab. This can and hopefully will remove some confusion that the beginner level circuit student has when constructing a circuit. The next step to improving and enhancing the laboratory experience for the student is to add a computer system to each laboratory station. Each system will contain software and hardware that will connect the test instruments to the computer and perform a multitude of analysis functions. The software that has stimulated some interest is MatLab. MatLab includes curriculum for some of the following: digital signal processing, digital image processing, digital filters, signals and systems, speech processing, computer-controlled systems, applied digital signal processing, dynamic modeling of engineering systems, and continuous-time linear systems. In conclusion, the learning invention for this laboratory is to bring together the lecture and lab through the implementation of software and hardware. This was part of the Learning Invention Labs that MATEC held. Visit the MATEC.org homepage for more information.
