abstract

  • In the education of basic matters of technical studies, as representation systems, it is necessary to introduce new technologies that allow individual learning to students. Learning can be traditional
    face to face or remotely by means of e-learning. In this work, a
    web-based computer specific application to study the Monge Projection is
    presented. The web site is design to have two different parts: the
    theoretical tutorials to remind the most important concepts of the
    subject, and some step by step solved exercises with indications, in
    order to fix the main ideas of the subject in the students mind.
    Likewise, and for a better comprehension, the students have the
    possibility, once finished the exercise, to visualize the
    three-dimensional solution of the two-dimensional problem. This
    application is initially thought to support the master classes, but it
    is also valid for distance learning, where students face alone the
    learning. This type of applications allows bringing basic matters closer
    to the students by the use of new technologies.
