Abstract:


Heated debates involving reforms in the educational system are becoming more and more frequent in recent years. This is due to the increasingly evident shortcomings in the educational system and its difficulties to evolve at the same pace as technological development. The aim of this work is to present an analysis of the current engineering educational context and propose an interactive content authoring system as well as a virtual professor in an attempt to make learning experience richer and more motivating to students.
