A better alternative to traditional textbooks.
The recorded version of the webinar is now available.
Talking to instructors teaching controls or other engineering courses, we often hear complains about conventional textbooks. They are expensive, inflexible, and do not offer an effective learning experience to students. To compensate for these shortcomings, many professors spend a lot of time preparing extensive course notes and online resources for their students.
We knew we could help. Quanser team has more than 30 years of experience in control systems teaching innovation, software development, and curriculum content creation. And so we embarked on a mission to develop a better alternative to control systems textbook. One that would engage students and excite them for controls.
We want to invite you to look at the result: the Experience Controls app. This unique mobile textbook is available for free to anyone who wants to learn – or teach – control systems fundamentals.
In the webinar, you will learn what the app offers to learners: clear and concise language, emphasizing concepts through examples and diagrams, and putting them into the context of modern industrial applications. We will demonstrate how students can use various review tools in the app to check their understanding of concepts as they progress through the content. Even more importantly, you will see how key concepts are grounded in practice using interactive real-time simulations that allow students to interact directly with real control plant models.
As an instructor, you will be interested to see examples of the resources we prepared to make implementing Experience Controls into any existing or brand-new course quick and easy – from PowerPoint slides to a bank of questions & solutions you can assign for homework, practice, or at exams.
