Reaction Curve Tuning Example
By Terry Bartelt
Learners perform the steps required for the Ziegler-Nichols Reaction Curve Tuning Method. The process identification procedure is performed, calculations are made, and the proper PID values are programmed into the controller.
Hydraulic Schematic Symbol Flashcards
By John Rosz
This interactive object is designed to help learners memorize schematic symbols used in hydraulic diagrams. Learners quiz themselves using electronic flashcards.
In this animated activity, learners examine the three main segments of a hydraulic system: power supply, control, and output. A brief quiz completes the learning object.
Comparing Hydraulics and Pneumatics
Learners examine the differences and similarities between hydraulic and pneumatic systems.
In this animated object, learners study how the internal parts of an AC synchronous motor interact with magnetic fields to cause rotation. A short quiz completes the activity.
The Elementary AC Generator
Learners view animations showing the operation of the internal parts of an AC generator. A short quiz completes the activity.
A Timer-Off Application
Learners examine how a PLC Timer-Off instruction is used in the operation of an automotive paint booth.
Hall-Effect Sensor Application
Learners view practical examples of how a Hall-effect sensor is used.
Three-Phase Delta Transformer Calculations
By James Bourassa
Using a memory shortcut for calculations, the learner determines line and phase values of current in a three-phase AC configuration. Practice problems complete the activity.
How Small Is a Millionth of an Inch?
By Barbara Anderegg
In this learning activity you'll determine the measurement to be made and the accuracy required.
Basic Types of Lines Used in Engineering Drawings
By Kelly Curran, Glenn Sokolowski
In this highly interactive object, learners associate basic line types and terms with engineering drawing geometry. A quiz completes the activity.
An Algorithm for Converting a Decimal Number to a Binary Number
By Kevin Ritzman
In this learning activity you'll examine a systematic method for converting a decimal number (base 10) into a binary number (base 2).
Transformer Practice Problems
By Patrick Hoppe
Students solve practice problems on voltage, current, and impedance matching. Examples precede the problems.
By Bruce Forciea
In this animated object, learners view the "T" and "P" waves and the "QRS complex." A brief quiz completes the activity.
How Current Requires Voltage
This learning activity uses a water pressure analogy to present the concept that voltage pressure is required to cause current flow.
A Sample DC/AC I Exam
Students complete a sample exam for DC/AC I. It provides an overview of the material presented in the course.
An Introduction to the Solderless Breadboard
In this learning activity you'll be introduced to the layout and operation of the solderless breadboard.
By Maribeth Blankenheim
In this animated activity, learners practice listening and counting the apical pulse of adults, children, and infants.
Heart Anatomy Review
By Mary Riebe
The user completes a fill-in-the-blank exercise to review the anatomy of the heart.
By Kathleen Lee
In this animated and interactive object, learners conduct an experiment online to illustrate how a greater number of particles in a "vessel" increases osmotic pressure.
Apgar Scoring in the Newborn
By Kathy Costa Lieberthal
Students read about the importance of the Apgar score in assessing the newborn after delivery. Each sign of the Apgar score is identified with illustrations to help the student recognize the proper rating.
Assessing Cranial Nerves
By Carrie Thompson
In this interactive object, learners read a scenario and identify the cranial nerve that is being assessed.
Case Study: Cardiac Disorders and Occupational Therapy
By Ann Jadin
In this interactive object, learners identify the risk factors and the precautions to follow when treating a patient with a cardiac condition. They also design a treatment plan for that patient.
Pharmacology Game Show
By Susan McNeely
Learners answer questions about drugs and "buzz-in" their responses to accumulate points. Up to three people can play at one time on the game board.
Learners read an explanation of the concept of apparent power in a power distribution system involving motors, generators, and transformers. A quiz completes this interactive lesson.
