Due to increased demand for interactive learning opportunities for engineering students, an interactive spectral analysis learning module was developed for the course Biomedical Signal and Image Processing (HST582J/6.555J/16.456J). The design of this module is based on the Star Legacy model, a pedagogical framework that promotes the creation of guided learning environments that use applications as the context for focused learning activities. The module is implemented using a combination of traditional teaching methods and web-based components. The web-based components include tutorial questions, text summaries, tables, figures, a glossary, and an interactive demonstration. This module was used in HST582J/6.555J/16.456J during Spring Term 2001. A variety of assessment techniques were employed. Survey results show that students generally found the module useful. Student performance on lab reports showed improved understanding of key concepts relative to previous years. Future efforts should reanalyze other performance data and make suggested modifications to the overall module, the web-based tutorial, and the interactive demo.
