Abstract:The work presented in this paper has been developed at Michael Hernández University at Elche, by The teachers staff of the Electrical Engineering Area. This work has been request by FEMPA, the Businessmen's Federation of the Metal of the Alicante Province.
The web developed contains a professional training course on-line for the electrical sector. At this web engineers and electrical installers could realize a training course from their houses with any PC connected to Internet.
The contents have been developed and adapted in order to bee easy to learn on-line.
The course contains three different modules to complete the formation of the pupil:
- Electrical facilities in buildings
- Electrical facilities in places of public concurrence and garages
- Solar photovoltaic Facilities
The pupil accedes to the portal using a password. First he chooses any of three modules to begin. And afterwards he studies the theory and realizes exercises. The pupil is evaluated by a test on-line to verify the acquired knowledge. If the pupil does not choose the correct response the system do not let him to continue towards the following topics (screens). In case of succeeding the answers the pupil is prepared to continue by the following screens.
The UMH teachers are also tutors and help the pupils on-line. Teachers can realize a follow-up from a web page of control to each one of the pupils. This way tutors can know each time the knowledge acquired by the pupil, and if he has any question to clarify.
