Abstract:The article deals with structural mechanics education procedure on Faculty of Architecture, Brno University of Technology, due to its innovation based on multimedia form. On the grounds of my 20years experience I have decided to create vivid didactic tool, which could be engaged for comprehension of solution problems on the way sequential animation of static calculations and charts dissimulating hand-made drawing. The article treat of procedure and experience during the appointed task realization.
My effort to develop a multimedia-aided method of teaching was primarily based on the high quality technological facilities that were available in the lecture rooms and downright urged to innovation. The first step towards multimedia teaching was directed to lectures. It culminated in gaining research project that I have defended in 2007. The implementation of this project allowed to purchase further technological means which improved the technological background of the seminar rooms. This made possible to apply this type of teaching even to tutorials. In the next stage of tutorials in structural mechanics, the Moodle environment will be use as professional environment of e-learning that enables the students to communicate with the teacher.
Keywords: structural mechanics, multimedia, static calculation, tutorial, teaching, e-learning.
