Purpose – This paper seeks to describe the development of an e-learning package in Automated Parts Feeding, by discussing the concept of e-learning, the development process and presenting the automated parts-feeding contents covered in the package.
Design/methodology/approach – Macromedia Flash MX has been used as the main development platform. Other authoring tools include ProEngineer Wildfire, Autodesk 3ds Max, Adobe Premiere Pro and Adobe Photoshop. These tools provide the important framework for organising and editing the elements of the e-learning courseware and ensure maximum effectiveness of the 2D/3D graphics and animation in the courseware.
Findings – The courseware has been fully tested. Evaluation of the software by users indicate that the majority of users are pleased with its effectiveness, quality, design, length of content and style of delivery.
Originality/value – It serves as a supplement teaching package for students, instructors, engineers and technologists who are interested in the specialised field of automated parts feeding.
