Abstract

Computers are widely used for educational purposes. Multimedia tools and simulations are mostly preferred for learning especially hard and complex structures in technical field and hardly realized experiments in laboratory environment. Besides, supporting theoretical knowledge with practical applications is crucial in engineering education. But, effects of negative conditions such as hardware deficiency (experimental gadgets, measuring instruments, etc.) in education environment, high number of students, less number of educators can be diminished with concepts which are distance education, computer-aided education, etc. In this study, web-based educational tool which is oriented to signals and systems subjects/courses is realized. This tool provides learning of signals and systems subjects with its subject descriptions, solved/unsolved problems, animations, simulations, interactive simulators, real-time applications, general exams, online communication/support, and new educational strategy in easy, simple, and effective way. Usability and educational contribution of realized study was inspected with questionnaires which were filled anonymously by 110 students in Uludag University and assessed according to SUS and Likert scales.
