EXELEARNING INTERACTIVE RESOURCES IN LEARNING INTEGRATION APPLICATIONS IN ENGINEERING

C. Calvo-Jurado

University of Extremadura (SPAIN)
Calculus subject is one of the theoretical bases in Engineering since it plays an essential role in the development of abstraction capacity and some reasoning skills underlying key concepts throughout other disciplines of technical degrees. However, this mathematical issue, usually scheduled in the first semester of the degree, and particularly the calculus of primitive functions, are characterized by a deep abstract nature difficult to be faced by the students. To this, is added the fact that integration and especially its applications constitute topics that in recent times are not taught with the required rigor in the curriculum of the last year of high school.

The need to overcome these dificulties has driven us the idea of developing of learning technologies with the necessary required graphic tools of the subject, as a support to traditional classroom teaching. To do it, we will make use of free distribution software as eXeLearning that join to proper numerical software allow us to design the Definite Integral Applications lesson. All this integrated matter in eXeLearning, was latter exported as a IMS zip file to the subject's Virtual Classroom located on the Moodle platform, since it is within this framework that the student will study the lesson and display the graphic content.

Therefore, the main objectives of this work goes through showing the potential of eXeLearning to build not only content and activities in the context of Integral Applications, but also self-assessment proposals (SCORM questionnaires, true/false and multiple selection quiz) that help to the students to review their progression in the learning of the subject. Finally, we present how this experience favors the students' learning and how much it influences their final evaluation.
