Abstract
One of the fundamental, yet challenging tasks in Nigeria education is the development and utilization of teaching strategies that effectively convey information in a format that is conducive to students as their preferred learning styles. Due to the fact that students prefer the conventional method of teaching in order to provide better understanding of conceptual theory and computational works that seem tedious manually which can be done using computer, this platform has been designed to provide various animation, image, e-book and online resources on kinematics of machines. The main aim of the presentation is to build an e-Learning platform focused on the kinematics of machines, using the most advanced multimedia tools with high definition videos, wiki, quiz and evaluation among others. The developed e-learning platform on kinematics of machines provides a unique experience, impossible to achieve with the traditional system of learning in the classroom. The training with the e-Learning platform is engaging and interactive, included instructions from live video, presentations, chat, link library and assessments in order to maximize the learner experience on kinematics of machines learning process. This presentation will review relevant literature, describe the e-learning platform developed and compare its use to other content delivery methods, discuss the experiences and evaluation of using the e-learning platform and how the students benefited from using the e-learning platform, and discuss the necessary hardware and software and the process of making an e-learning platform. // Paper ID: 310
