eLearnIng

We provide various forms of eLearning that accompany our courses and study their influence on modern teaching methods to improve the quality of academic education.

Beside the main reseach topics, the IST is also interested in the various forms of eLearning and their influence on modern teaching methods. In different projects, we try to find new ways to improve the quality of academic education.

Learning Apps for Android and iPhone

We currently offer two Android and iPhone apps that accompany the lecture "Einführung in die Regelungstechnik" at the University of Stuttgart. Both apps are available in the Android and Apple App Store, respectively.

In our Nyquist app, the user can analyze the stability of the closed loop by using the Nyquist stability criterion. With the Nyquist stability criterion, you can determine the stability of the closed loop based on the frequency response of the open loop, without explicitly calculating the poles of the closed loop. As the underlying systems are randomly generated, this app offers an unlimited number of tasks for the user to exercise the Nyquist criterion.

Our Kurztest app provides short and simple quizzes for the students. The presented questions are based on past lectures (and updated according to the progress of the lecture) with the purpose to help the students revise basic concepts of the covered course contents.

Matlab Apps: Tutorials and Exercises

We offer Matlab Apps on the topics of the Nyquist Criterion, Robustness and Stability, Loopshaping, and Controllability and Observability that accompany the lecture "Einfürhung in die Regelungstechnik".

Educational Games

Since 2005, we are using Educational Games in the course „Einführung in die Regelungstechnik“ and "Konzepte der Regelungstechnik ("Introduction to Automatic Control" and "Concepts of Automatic Control"). The following images show screenshots of some of these games. For more details on our educational games and to download the respective games, please follow the provided link.
