Abstract

PALLARES MUNOZ, Myriam Rocío  and  RODRIGUEZ CALDERON, Wilson. Designing educational software for analysing pressurised hydraulic systems in civil engineering. Ing. Investig. [online]. 2006, vol.26, n.3, pp.58-66. ISSN 0120-5609.

New information technologies have opened up a world of inexhaustible possibilities in teaching. Using such technologies in technical teaching has become indispensable due to the nature of current resources in industrial design and production. This work consists of preparing didactic material (educational software) aimed at teaching fluid mechanics, particularly analysing tube, tank and pumping systems, initially aimed at civil engineering students from the Universidad Santo Tomás in Bogotá. Such materials have been successfully developed and used in their formal programmes by several universities around the world during the last few years. The didactic software mentioned in this work was constructed using Visual Basic programming language. This has resulted in a very useful educational tool, leading to effective teacher-student communication which is suitable for both the classroom and students’ personal work (Angel y Bautista, 2001; Aguiar, 2002).

Keywords : software development; educational software; Cross’s method.
