Tutorials for self-study and classroom use
KMODDL contains several Web tutorials developed by Cornell University faculty
members as guides to specific aspects of the collection’s content. Some
tutorials are suitable for self-study; all will aid instructors at various
educational levels in integrating materials from the digital library into their
students’ curricula. Currently, tutorials are available for use in:
- College and university courses in mathematics, engineering design, and history of technology
- High school courses in mathematics and technology
- Middle school courses in mathematics and technology
The tutorials are linked from the descriptive pages of the models to which they
pertain (under “resources”). You may also browse them by selecting the
“tutorials” link from the right sidebar on the KMODDL homepage, or
search by key word, subject, or author.
The tutorials have been tested and evaluated in the classroom. Educators using
KMODDL source material are encouraged to produce tutorials of their own and
submit them for possible inclusion in the collection.
