Learning System to Introduce GIS to Civil Engineers
A web-based e-learning system to facilitate the integration of Geographical Information Systems (GIS) into the Civil Engineering curriculum is described in this paper. The principal learning goal is to encourage students to apply and integrate foundational knowledge in the solution of "real world" comprehensive civil engineering problems. Sharable content objects, designed in accordance with the ADL/SCORM standards, contain basic knowledge components in the form of web-viewable hypermedia coupled with an assessable learning outcome thereby forming a learning object.
