LEAP Semester 1 in the (e)Books

After surveying students who participated in the first semester of LEAP, there were many positives noted in their learning experiences.

Here’s a look at the student feedback:

Automotive Engineering

Students had to hand draw 2,4, and 8 cylinder engines using the iPad.

Here’s one cool example!

“I made it in Notability. First I drew all of the individual parts of the engine (valves, piston, fuel injector, cams, etc.). I filled a page with just “spare parts” before I handed it in. Then, using Notability, I copied those parts and using the scissors tool, I combined them together to form a full cylinder. Once I had one, I just copied the entire cylinder and combined them into whatever arrangement I needed. Then I just had to add the camshaft and gears and label the parts. I used the highlighter so that the parts were transparent, allowing the parts behind to be seen.”
