Abstract

This paper describes multimeda software developed to increase understanding of basic electric circuit theory concepts. The package is designed to be used by first year students exposed by the first time to this material. Two packages are described here. The first one is called WinCIR! and the second one is called Circuits Tutorial. Both packages require Windows to work and are written in Visual Basic and Hypertext, respectively. Animations, audio, and video are included to better appreciate some of the concepts taught in the course. Introduction The first course on circuit theory[l] is the foundation for the study of electrical engineering. Thus, it is important for instructors to make sure t
